Mineral Makeup….the only way to go.
Mineral make up came out in the 1970’s, however it has been the way to go for the past decade. Some of us are just stuck on our MAC make up, or other non-mineral make up brands. Little do you know the great qualities that mineral make up possess!
Mineral makeup tends to look much more natural then regular make up, it has a lighter feeling and seems to blend more into the skin. What makes mineral make up so great is surprisingly not what ingredients it has, but more so what ingredients are left out. Many popular mineral make up bands are free of preservatives, chemical dyes, fragrance and mineral oils. These ingredients can cause irritation on sensitive skin, hence why many dermatologists recommend mineral make up over regular make up. Mineral make up also does not contain oils, which is great for acne prone skin.
Most mineral make ups also contain titanium dioxide and/or zinc oxide, both which are sunblocks. Zinc oxide also has anti-inflammatory qualities, which can work great on calming sensitive skin, irritated skin, and is wonderful for post facial surgery coverup.
My piece of advise to you is mineral make up is wonderful for certain skin types, including mine. If you happen to posses wonderful skin that does not get irritated easily, and you have no negative reactions to regular makeup, and enjoy using it, then heck…keep it up! If you are ready to mix it up and try something that more natural looking….go try mineral make up! I personally recommend GloMinerals make up, which can be found at www.Glominerals.com
