Going Green – Make-Up the Natural way
During the last five years Mineral makeup has gained more and more popularity among women, make-up artists and dermatologist’s all over the world. But what exactly is Mineral makeup and is it any better for your skin than the everyday cosmetics we have used for so long?
Mineral makeup is made from 100 percent micronized mineral powders and contains zero chemicals which can irritate the skin. Most mineral makeup products are free of talc, fragrance, silicones, chemicals, rice powders, mica, fillers, oils, wax and are dye-free. The reason why mineral makeup is so popular today is that it improves the health of the skin and does not contain harsh ingredients.
We can all use Mineral makeup as it is appropriate for all skin types, including dry and hyper sensitive skins. It is made from pure mineral elements like zinc oxide, and titanium dioxide, that are sterilized and pulverized into a powder, as well as pure iron which absorbs heat. The ingredients contained in mineral makeup offer broad spectrum sun protection, calm and soothe the skin and are anti-inflammatory. Mineral makeup keeps your skin hydrated all day long and has UV protective filters that protects your skin from the harmful influences.
Mineral makeup works especially well for mature skins because it reflects the light and hides fine lines and wrinkles.
Perfect for acne prone skin, Mineral makeup doesn’t clog pores, doesn’t dry skin, takes away shiny areas and protects the delicate areas. If your skin is very oily mineral makeup is perfect for you because the minerals absorb the excess oil and allows your skin to breathe naturally. Dermatologists recommend mineral makeup to patients who suffer from severe acne, rosacea, have skin allergies and eczemas because the minerals heal the skin and nourish it.
Highly recommended by plastic surgeons Mineral powder is the only makeup that you can apply after chemical peel, microdermabrasion or laser resurfacing with no risk of inflammation or allergic reaction. It contains ingredients that help to protect your skin by providing protection from the sun UV rays and free radicals.
For those of us who need a little help concealing it is ideal for hiding dark, red spots, broken capillaries and acne scars. You can use it to hide blemishes and discoloration as it easily covers redness and evens out skin tone.
