Late nights, party food and imbibing more than usual can add up to skin problems. Why not give your complexion a break and switch to mineral makeup.
The beauty of mineral makeup is the pigments blend with your skin’s natural oils to even out tone. Mineral makeup contains light refracting properties for an airbrushed look and when applied properly, minimizes pores, giving you a more natural look.
What’s different about mineral makeup?
It really boils down to what’s left out of mineral makeup. For leading, quality mineral makeup lines, the ingredients that have been removed include preservatives, parabens, mineral oil, chemical dyes and fragrance, which can be irritating to your skin. Often, it’s the preservatives and fragrance that cause irritation. Dermatologists recommend mineral makeup for this very reason.
Read the label to ensure you’re purchasing a quality mineral makeup product. If it says the product is ‘mineral enriched’ or if it’s a liquid or mousse, the product may contain harmful and irritating ingredients such as paraben preservatives which are added to create a smooth texture. Makeup products that are not powders may also contain moisturizers, antioxidant vitamins or other ingredients to benefit your skin.
Women with sensitive skin are less likely to react to mineral makeup. Because it doesn’t contain oil, it’s also not aggravating to acne-prone complexions.
Give mineral makeup a try–your skin will thank you!
