What is mineral make up?
Mineral makeup is made up of minerals such as iron oxide, zinc oxide and mica. Unlike conventional makeup, it doesn’t include any preservatives that block your pores or cause pimples, making it much better for your skin.
What are the benefits of mineral makeup?
Besides giving a smoother coverage, mineral makeup is natural and free from preservatives allowing your skin to breathe. With less ingredients it is said that this type of makeup is best for sensitive skin.
Due to the mineral particles used, most mineral makeup products will also have some sun protection that act as little barriers for your skin from UV rays.
It is what mineral makeup lacks that make them fantastic for the skin. No artificial colour, oils, perfumes (number one cause of irritation or allergies) preservatives to clog pores and irritate the skin.
The unique combination of mica, zinc oxide, iron oxides and titanium dioxide has anti-inflammatory properties which are great for those with problematic skin such as acne, eczema, rosacea, or those sensitive to sunlight following invasive procedures like chemical peels. This kind if makeup has a calming effect on the skin.
One of the best reasons to wear mineral makeup is that it is non-comedongenic, meaning it doesn’t clog pores allowing the skin to breathe, however the best cosmetic you can wear is a healthy skin.
