Are you looking for a kind of makeup that actually benefits your skin? Why not consider mineral makeup? Mineral makeup is the latest addition to a new beauty culture that is dedicated to healthier, more natural living.
What is Mineral Makeup?
Mineral makeup is a type of makeup that uses no synthetic ingredients, and is thus hypoallergenic. It does not contain perfumes, talc, alcohols, dyes, mineral oil, or preservatives. In fact, mineral makeup nourishes the skin and is pure enough to sleep in – a major no-no with traditional kinds of makeup!
It is actually made from the mineral elements of the earth’s own minerals and contains ingredients such as zinc oxide, titanium dioxide, bismuth, oxychloride, iron oxide, as well as other ingredients. The minerals are then mixed with other inorganic pigments in order to get the desired colour.
Benefits of Mineral Makeup
Mineral makeup has several benefits. Firstly, it is good for sensitive skin that may otherwise be aggravated by traditional makeup. Many women have skin problems such as acne, dryness, and allergies, and mineral makeup does not exacerbate these problems at all.
It is also feels natural, and not like a mask. Mineral makeup has a texture that is lighter, and it also covers differently to commercial makeup, meaning that skin will appear more natural and translucent, and your skin will be able to breathe. As a bonus, it also has ingredients that are good for the skin, with minerals such as titanium, gold, zinc, magnesium, and aluminium that naturally relax, refresh and rejuvenate the skin.
Mineral makeup does not enhance the appearance of wrinkles as traditional powder makeup is likely to do. By using mineral makeup, you can actually help to disguise these wrinkles thanks to the essential vitamins, antioxidants and ingredients contained within the makeup.
It is said that the sun is the number one enemy when it comes to aging the skin and mineral makeup can naturally protect against the damaging effects of the sun. The zinc oxide in mineral makeup is a natural sunscreen and offers UVA and UVB protection.
Finally, it is the only form of makeup that is safe to leave on your skin while sleeping, as it allows your skin to breathe and does not clog pores. It also lasts longer than traditional makeup, so you don’t have to reapply it as much.
