Wearing Mineral Makeup

Better For Your Skin

What you need to keep in mind when shopping for a mineral makeup line is whether or not the products contain oils, dyes, chemical preservatives, talc, perfumes, parabens and other pore-clogging properties.

This is especially true if you’ve got sensitive skin issues and/or have had less-than-pleasant experiences when trying something new.

What Makes It Special

Mineral makeup that’s of the highest quality enhances the skin naturally so keep an eye out for formulas that include –

• Titanium dioxide which provides a natural sunscreen

• Mica which offers a natural glow

• Zinc oxide which stops skin inflammation

• Clay which absorbs excess oil that lessens acne breakouts

• Pure pigments which create a natural tone and color

Some high-end mineral makeup lines have punched up the skin care ante by incorporating other ingredients such as vitamins A, C, E and green tea extract. These powerful antioxidants hydrate the skin and leave it silky smooth.

Although mineral makeup offers a natural sunscreen, it’s still wise to apply additional sunscreen underneath it for maximum solar defense. This kind of smart anti-aging practice will be well worth the effort in the future.
