HEALTHY INGREDIENTS IN MINERAL MAKEUP
Mineral makeup is the latest trend in cosmetics. This is the latest addition to the emerging beauty culture dedicated to a better living. Unlike traditional makeup products that carry synthetic fillers that will clog pores and create skin problems, mineral makeup which is based on a hypoallergenic loose powder that naturally hydrates skin will help heal skin. Natural cosmetic will help give your skin a shiny glow, while creating safe and healthy skin with youthful effervescence.
Mineral makeup is natural. There are different types of mineral makeup. One type of mineral makeup is a 100% mineral makeup which does no have any dyes, perfumes, oils, fillers or talc. It does not irritate that skin, it is oil free, non-comedogenic, fragrance free, preservative free and it is hypoallergenic. 100% mineral makeup can help with almost any skin condition including; acne, roscea, microdermabrasion, sensitive skin and many others. Using mineral makeup will allow a healthier alternate to regular makeup.
Minerals have a lot of pigment which allows full coverage that will last all day. Mineral makeup is made from a natural source, such as finely ground crushed minerals. Most mineral makeup lines have very similar ingredients. Some commonly used minerals include titanium dioxide, zinc oxide, iron oxide and silk mica. Titanium dioxide, a common ingredient in sun block products, is particularly suited to protect skin from damaging sunlight. This white mineral’s crystalline structure naturally reflects and defuses the sun’s harmful rays. The sun is the number one aging agent, so it is important to protect your skin using UVA-UVB protection.
Zinc oxide works in combination with the Titanium Dioxide to reflect the sunlight’s dangerous UVA and UVB rays. Iron Oxide is found in nature in three different colors; red, orange and yellow. These pigments are blended into flesh tones for mineral foundations. Silk mica gives mineral makeup a smooth texture.
