For some time mineral-based makeups have been considered the way forward for flawless, healthy skin.
With their featherweight properties and natural contents, it’s a wonder why every woman in the world hasn’t taken to making it the staple of their makeup bag once and for all.
Despite the best of intentions liquid and moose-based foundations have, they still cannot boast a chemical free ingredients list as a mineral foundation can. It is these chemicals that can leave skin feeling irritated and inflamed, even if they are made for sensative or hypoallegenic complexions.
Given that mineral makeups do not contain such chemicals they are more kind to the skin and are encouraged by dermatologists for all women, especially those prone to dryness, redness, irritation, inflammation and acne break outs.
Unlike some liquid foundations (not all, some are exceptionally good) that can feel heavy, clogged or loaded up on the skin, mineral makeup is incredibly lightweight, resting gently on the skin allowing it to breathe and avoiding perspiration.
Another advantage is that it can be worn all year round without having to think about adapting your makeup depending on the month or season. Not only does it protect you from harmful UV rays and sun damage, but this makeup will also protect from the winter elements including harsh winds that can cause redness and chapping.
Some of the contents of the ground-up mineral foundation often have anti inflammatory properties which can help to soothe and calm the skin, making it not only skin friendly, but helping to improve the overall health of your skin.
Not only that, but the minerals have also been proven to help replenish and even be an agent when helping to fight the signs of aging, making them a great product to use no matter your age or skin type.
If all this wasn’t enough, mineral foundations are easier to apply and can longer on the skin. Without smearing, (apply with gentle circles with a makeup brush) or fear of orange line around the side of the face, mineral makeup leaves you with a last healthy glow as it reacts to the pigments in your own complexion rather than simply adding a layer of liquid to the face as some foundations do.
They are also completely safe to use if you have undergone lazer surgery or have scarring to the face thanks to their natural contents and protective elements.
With increasing numbers of brand names now looking into providing mineral makeup, not to mention the undoubted benefits to fitting this quick and easy to apply cosmetic to your beauty regime, we’re betting this could become a winter go to for producing bright, flawless, not to mention, healthier skin.
