Why switching to mineral make-up could be the key to perfect skin
Blemishes, unruly breakouts and dry patches are all too familiar with most women’s skin, but covering these unsightly areas with the wrong make-up may actually be the root cause. So break the vicious cycle and reap the benefits of mineralized make-up products.
The market is now bursting with “mineral” make-up lines that focus on natural hydration for the skin as well as giving the coverage, glamour and quality of other brands.
The most common ingredients in mineral make-up are iron oxides, zinc oxide and mica, but don’t be scared by the science, these ingredients contain no preservatives, fragrances or dyes and means the skin is less prone to oil blockages or dryness.
Mineral make-up is also free of parabens, which are known to cause dryness, but ingredients like zinc oxides are naturally calming to inflamed or irritated skin, so not only is mineral make-up gentler on the face it will actually help to reduce redness.
Mineralized make-up such as foundation powders are very fine and make for effortless application in seconds, creating a fresh look without the cakey finish of heavy liquid products. The light formula also means that the product won’t cling to dryer patches of the skin, dodging the dreaded look of an uneven face.
The movement to mineralized make-up won’t put you out of pocket, and could actually save you a few pounds on your purchase. The shelf life of these products is also much longer due to the additives and fillers used in their production. These fake added extras mean the make-up expires much quicker than the natural components that make up mineralized formulas.
Mineralized make-up doesn’t stop at foundations; many brands have introduced eyeshadows, lipsticks and blushers to complete the look of any style, so make the switch and embrace the beauty of a more natural, skin-loving make-up look today.
