Despite the sudden rise in popularity during the last few years, mineral makeup is not a new concept. On the contrary, mineral makeup has quietly held a place on store shelves next to other types of foundations for decades. As consumer awareness grows, so does the demand for more natural products. With a more conscientious consumer base, mineral makeup has gained a place in the shopping cart right along side organic produce and toxin-free cleaning products. Rightly so, as there are many benefits to using mineral makeup instead of alternative foundations.
Free Of Harmful Chemicals
Many mineral powders are free of fillers such as talc, chemical dyes, binders, artificial fragrances, and chemical preservatives. These ingredients can cause irritation, acne, dryness, and other skin issues. Mineral makeup is considered a more gentle option compared to traditional foundations, and generally works well for those who have sensitive skin.
Won’t Clog Pores
Traditional makeup may offer hefty coverage, but it comes at a price. Many foundations are too heavy and can prevent the skin from breathing. This can cause or worsen acne, redness, and blemishes. Many mineral powders offer similar coverage without the baggage. Free of oil and other irritants, mineral makeup doesn’t promote bacteria growth and won’t clog your pores.
A More Natural Look
A successful makeup application results in the appearance that no foundation was needed. Traditional foundations tend to be heavier than their mineral counterparts. The result is a look that appears unnatural. Heavy makeup often sinks into fine lines and wrinkles, making them stand out. Mineral makeup provides more natural looking coverage. The ingredients in mineral makeup interact with the light in a way that bounces off the skin and creates a more flawless look.
Aside from lacking harmful chemicals and artificial ingredients, mineral makeup contains healthy minerals. The combination of minerals contained in most mineral makeup has anti-inflammatory properties to help combat side effects of certain skin conditions, such as rosacea and eczema. Most mineral makeup contains titanium dioxide and zinc oxide, ingredients that help protect the skin from sun damage and other effects of aging.
