5 Skin Health benefits of skincare mineral makeup.
Mineral makeup trends continue to rise as users opt for clean beauty products. This shift in cosmetic trends comes as no surprise as mineral makeup offers consumers numerous advantages over traditional, commercial over the counter makeup. Free from skin clogging artificial ingredients, one could argue mineral makeup may look better on your skin and improve your overall complexion.
Allow me to highlight how skincare mineral makeup can provide five added health benefits to help restore and protect the health of your skin.
- Mineral Makeup Offers A Natural Built-In Sunscreen.
Mineral makeup contains ingredients such as mica, iron oxide, zinc oxide, and titanium. Two of these ingredients, titanium dioxide, and zinc oxide, are common ingredients which formulate sunscreen. These ingredients work to provide physical block protection against the sun’s damaging UV rays. I do however, recommend applying mineral makeup in conjunction with a daily SPF facial moisturiser, as mineral makeup does not contain a substantial amount of key ingredients to fully block harmful rays as well as prescriptive sunscreen.
- Mineral Makeup Provides Improved Coverage.
Traditional makeup may very well conceal skin imperfections such as under eye bags, uneven skin tone, blemishes, sun damage and dark spots. Yet, traditional liquid-based, concealer, and powder foundations aren’t always the best options or particularly healthy for your skin. Did you know that these products might be preventing you from having healthy skin? Continually applying thick layers of base makeup to conceal imperfections can actually prevent our skin from functioning appropriately. It’s important for our skin to release oils and perspiration naturally. Doing so prolongs or worsens any redness, dryness, and blemishes. This, in turn, results in a constant need to apply more layers of makeup, thereby clogging pores.
In contrast, mineral makeup skincare provides a beautiful coverage and a healthy radiant appearance using ingredients from nature. Traditional cosmetics use talc as a bulking agent to create a heavier base on the skin, which results in less pigmentation. A poorly pigmented foundation leads to more layering of the product to achieve your desired look and coverage. Meanwhile, mineral makeup excludes talc and yields a more concentrated pigment and natural finish.
- Mineral Makeup Provides Longer Wear and Decreases Ageing.
You may remember how traditional foundation feels on your skin; it is heavy and often settles into creases, fine lines, and wrinkles. Making the imperfections we are trying to cover stand out more! Meanwhile, mineral makeup offers a lightweight feel and does not settle into fine lines, preventing a dull and aged appearance. Mineral makeup can also withstand varying temperatures; it will hold in high heat or water, instead of melting off like traditional makeup, and it will not cause blotchiness, itchiness or flaking in cold weather.
- Mineral Makeup Formulas Are for All Skin Types and Conditions.
Did you know individuals with oily, acne-prone, sensitive, rosacea or any skin condition can benefit from using mineral makeup? Mineral makeup is universal for all skins. If you are unsure about your exact skin type or skin condition, book an appointment with me so I can best identify the exact healthy state of your skin and select the ideal mineral foundation. No matter your skin type, it is important to condition and moisturise your face every day before applying makeup. Doing so allows the moisturiser to create a well-hydrated surface for the primer and mineral makeup to glide onto beautifully and hold. For oily skin, consider using a matte-based powder on your t-zone area to control oil build-up. Whereas individuals with drier skin can try using a cream foundation and a hydrating mist to absorb molecules, rejuvenating and refreshing the skin.
- Mineral Makeup Helps Soothe Inflamed and Sensitive Skin.
Those with sensitive skin may be more prone to itching, dryness, stinging or burning sensations, bumps, or hives when using generic skincare products or makeup. For this reason, skincare professionals gravitate toward mineral makeup skincare because it is non-comedogenic; it doesn’t clog pores and allows the skin to function optimally. The ingredients found in mineral makeup skincare provide excellent and very effective anti-inflammatory properties that aid problematic skin. Mineral makeup is also free of artificial colours, oils, perfumes, or preservatives, which often clog pores and irritate any skin.
These properties make mineral makeup skincare an ideal choice for people suffering from skin conditions such as acne as using mineral makeup will not contribute to breakouts or rashes.
Those with eczema and dermatitis may find that by applying mineral makeup it may in fact help decrease reactions. Furthermore, practitioners report that mineral makeup can effectively help reduce redness caused by the condition rosacea.
Mineral makeup provides many advantages over traditional, commercial makeup, and is a much, MUCH healthier makeup option. Achieving a healthy complexion and radiant skin starts with an evaluation from an accredited skin health practitioner.
