Mineral Makeup is not a mask for our skin. It benefits and helps all skin care synergistically. More and more people are choosing mineral make up since it fits in well with their health-conscious and wellness-focused lifestyle.
Mineral make up is most highly valued for its naturally-derived ingredients. Good mineral make up formulations will contain nothing but minerals extracted and refined from the earth. These ingredients are also cited as being ‘natural’. This is true in that they are not artificial creations, but you should keep in mind that most mineral ingredients are processed to ensure they are safe for skin. Mineral make up is free of the harsh chemicals and damaging ingredients that can actually age your skin.
Mineral make up contains no preservatives and serves as a natural sunscreen against the damaging effects of the sun’s harsh UV rays. The purity of the minerals contained in mineral make up make it perfect for sensitive skin. In fact, mineral make up even has anti-inflammatory properties. It is also dry and inorganic, which makes it impossible for bacteria to survive.
Mineral make up is highly resistant to water. Not only does this make your look immune to unexpected sprinkles or the occasional tear, mineral make up is incredibly long-lasting. You’ll rarely have the need to re-apply your make up as the day wears on.
