Is Mineral Makeup Good For You?
There are 2 main types of sunscreen on the market today- Chemical and Physical.
Titanium dioxide and zinc oxide -which are major constituents of physical sunscreens- are FDA-approved as sunscreen and skin protectant respectively. Titanium dioxide protects the skin from UVB rays and some spectrums UVA rays, while zinc oxide protects the skin from both UVB rays and UVA rays. The best part of it all is that unlike chemical sunscreens, they don't generate free radicals, which can result in skin damage, irritation and accelerated ageing. As we mentioned earlier, these two substances are part of the basic makeup of mineral makeup.
This is great news for oily girls! As mineral makeup is oil-free, you won’t be complicating issues by packing on more oils to your face throughout the day.
Mineral makeup works very well with all skin types. Be it oily, combination, dry, sensitive, mature or normal skin, mineral makeup will work well with your skin type.
No creasing or settling into fine lines:
With mineral makeup, you won’t have to worry about your foundation creasing or settling into fine lines as the products are less dense and contain no artificial fillers.
Mineral makeup interacts with light in a unique way, such that light bounces off the skin to create a filtered, soft focus effect hence making the signs of ageing as is in more mature skin types, and also any flaws such as abnormal pigmentation less visible.
Mineral makeup is relatively long wearing with a seldom need for reapplications throughout the day. Prep skin with a makeup primer, dust some mattifying powder on your T-zone for oily skin types, and some hydrating mist on drier skin types and it stays on even longer on the skin.
Increased shelf life:
As mineral makeup is made up of mostly organic ingredients, the products don’t encourage microbial growth hence there’s little to no risk of contamination. Increase shelf life capabilities ensure your mineral makeup products last significantly longer in comparison to regular makeup products.
In addition to this, a little goes a long way with this type of makeup as it is quite pigmented. So you won’t have to use a ton to achieve your desired coverage.
Mineral makeup is less likely to rub off or melt when faced with harsh climatic conditions such as heat, humidity, and rain.
Light yet flawless coverage:
Mineral makeup bases are a distinctive mix of skin loving ingredients such as zinc oxide, titanium dioxide, iron oxide, mica; finely milled to create makeup that’s very light but yet provides flawless coverage that’s breathable. It gives you that comfortable not-wearing-makeup feel even if you happen to be wearing tons of makeup. The gist of it is this; regular makeup products tend to contain massive amounts of talc, which is heavier on the skin and less pigmented. These usually means you end up layering on more products to get desired coverage. With mineral makeup, the opposite is the case- a little goes a long way. You can achieve even the fullest coverage that still looks natural and great on camera including HD, with the added plus of a barely there feel. It can be gradually built up without looking cakey- basically, you will not ever have to burden yourself with the worry of whether your makeup is looking cakey forever and ever and ever.
Asides from its kind-to-skin benefits, mineral makeup, gives the face a particular kind of a natural youthful glow even on ageing skin types. You’ll look radiant no matter what the condition of your skin is underneath.
Its anti-ageing benefits stem from its sun protection and anti-inflammatory properties. Sun protection is essential in slowing down the skin’s ageing process. And with ingredients that won’t hurt the skin, ageing will remain as far away from your face as possible.
A majority of mineral makeup brands package their products in recyclable containers, making it possible to recycle empty container without contributing to environmental pollution. So it’s not just good for your skin but also for your environment.
So folks, with all this mineral goodness, it’s not hard to see why mineral makeup is gradually taking over the cosmetics industry and we think it will be around for a very very long time.
