Why Buy Mineral Makeup?
. Health and Beauty Benefits
Mineral makeup has really taken off in the past twenty years. At first, everyone was skeptical about a makeup that claimed to provide so many benefits in one jar. This article discusses some of the health and beauty benefits of wearing mineral makeup you might not have known.
Mineral makeup comes with claims that they work for all skin tones and skin types. The mineral makeup hides is supposed to hide imperfections and help women put forth their best face possible…and with the growing popularity of mineral makeup, it seems it’s doing just that.
Even though the powder looks much like other foundational makeup at first glance, a deeper look reveals that mineral makeup is quite different from the run of the mill makeup we are used to putting on. Mineral makeup is made up of just that-minerals and not filler.
The minerals that make up the basis of most mineral makeup are:
· Titanium dioxide
· Mica powder
· Iron oxides (for color)
These minerals are found naturally and are ground into a fine powder. As natural products, there is less of a chance of skin irritation with mineral makeup. We, as women, are used to skin irritations from makeup. All of the chemicals and dyes in most over-the-counter beauty products clog our pores and inhibit our skin from breathing.
Furthermore, most makeup cakes after prolonged wear. Many foundations show streaks when we become overheated and begin to perspire. No one wants to have their makeup run. When it cakes, it is easier to see fine lines and wrinkles in our skin. What a mess!
With natural mineral makeup, that is not a problem. Only a small amount of the mineral powder is applied to the face for all over coverage. The use of a Kabuki brush allows for quick and complete coverage for all skin types and tones.
Mineral makeup has several benefits:
· It provides complete and light coverage
· Hides fine lines and wrinkles
· Goes on smooth and stays smooth even on hot days
· Provides shades that complement any skin tone
· Adds a natural glow to the skin
Mineral makeup is perfect for those who need to use hypoallergenic makeup. The iron oxides, besides providing color also act as a natural sunscreen for the skin. The sun’s rays can damage the delicate skin of our face and cause us to wrinkle prematurely.
Have you ever kept makeup for a long time and wondered if you should still use it? Makeup can become contaminated from continued use with the same brushes. Mineral makeup resists bacterial buildup so you can keep it for a long time without worrying about the powder getting old. For those with sensitive skin, skin disorders, or who just have trouble finding a shade to fit your skin tone, mineral makeup is a viable option.
