As summer is fast approaching, we thought it would be the perfect time to talk mineral makeup!
If you’re after something a little more from your make-up, then mineral makeup could be just the thing for you. Since mineral cosmetics contain quality ingredients and formulas, it will nourish and protect your skin while giving you that flawless complexion that we all desire. Although we’re very aware that mineral makeup is natural and nourishing for the skin, some of us are still quite hesitant to make the switch from the more traditional makeup. We thought we’d provide you with just some of the many benefits to some very popular mineral cosmetics brands.
• It’s natural
As mineral makeup only contains natural ingredients like titanium dioxide, zinc oxide, mica and iron oxide, it’s free from organic dyes, preservatives and fragrances that can be found in conventional makeup. All of these ingredients are then ground up into fine particles to make powders and foundation.
• It allows your skin to breathe
Mineral make-up allows your skin to breathe. Unlike some traditional makeup that uses silicone and blocks the skin, mineral makeup allows your skin to excrete toxins whilst absorbing the necessary moisture too.
• It’s super lightweight and gives amazing coverage
Because of the quality of ingredients found within mineral makeup, it provides you with buildable coverage – so you have the option to go from a light to full coverage whenever needed. It’s super lightweight too and feels very natural on the skin – perfect for the summer season. Mineral makeup has amazing staying power so your look will last all day, giving you flawless coverage but without clogging or irritating your skin!
• It nourishes your skin and provides sun protection
One of our favourite benefits to mineral makeup is the pure quality of the ingredients. Titanium dioxide and zinc oxide are just two of the main ingredients, of which both have inflammatory properties. Zinc oxide is particularly effective for calming irritated skin, especially if you suffer with rosacea. What’s even more fabulous is that both of these major ingredients have natural UVA/UVB sun protection so your makeup can even be used to supplement you sun protection.
• Mineral make-up is perfect for sensitive skin
If you suffer with acne, rosacea and eczema then mineral makeup can really help you to soothe any flare-ups. Many Dermatologists also highly recommend their patients to wear mineral make-up following a chemical, microdermabrasion or laser treatment as the minerals are soothing to skin and can actually help your skin to recover more quickly.
With so many fabulous benefits, it’s no wonder that the trend for mineral makeup just keeps on growing! To help make that switch to mineral makeup a little easier, we’ve rounded up a selection of the best products from the wonderful Pur Minerals range.
