Mineral Makeup – products made of all natural, finely ground minerals
from the earth, without any of the chemicals, dyes, and preservatives
found in traditional makeup.
Mineral Makeup and Skin Health
Like most cosmetic products, mineral makeup has its fans and its
critics. Those who love it rave about the light, natural, long-lasting
glow that simply can't be duplicated by other types of makeup. Others,
however, complain it's drying, irritating, and accentuates wrinkles and
adds years to your appearance.
Makeup sensitivity is often the result of synthetic dyes,
fragrances, and preservatives, so any makeup that eliminates these is
going to eliminate some of the related problems.
Moreover, because titanium dioxide and zinc oxide have
anti-inflammatory properties, certain mineral makeups can also have a
calming effect on the skin, particularly important if you suffer from
inflammatory problems such as rosacea or acne.
It's non-comedongenic, so it won't clog pores, and it's not going to
aggravate an acne condition or cause a flare-up as easily as some
traditional makeups can.
