Mineral makeup is a popular trend these days when it comes to cosmetics selection. Its popularity among women suddenly achieved an extreme height over the recent years. There are many reasons why it became popular. One of these reasons is its content of pulverized and sterilized fine powder combined with various natural inorganic colorings turning the makeup into various colors. Another reason is the numerous benefits that mineral makeup brings compared to chemical-based makeup.
Being a non-comedogenic, mineral makeup does not block the skin pores rather it allows the skin to breathe. Since it is a skin-friendly product, mineral makeup is best recommended for women who have sensitive skin and those who suffer from acne, dryness, rosacea, and other skin ailments. The prime ingredients of mineral makeup are inorganic, which means microbes and bacteria cannot infect the skin or live in the makeup. With the inorganic ingredients, the makeup does not include preservatives and ensure a long shelf life.
Compared to heavier chemical-based makeup, mineral makeup of high quality does give the feeling of wearing a mask on the skin. The makeup is almost weightless and much lighter when used. It is proven by most women that mineral makeup also gives the feeling of not wearing any makeup at all. In addition, the makeup also leaves a very natural radiant glow on the skin.
The ingredients of mineral makeup are designed accordingly to the purpose of enhancing the entire being of the skin. It may include a wide spectrum of UVB and UVA sun protection, some anti-inflammatory, magnesium, and even zinc. The makeup also contributes and improves the appearance of the wearer as it hides the fine lines, crow’s feet, and wrinkles reflecting the sunlight.
