When we’re young we can’t afford the best quality makeup, so mineral makeup was probably out of the question. We usually went by what we could afford, but as we grow older, we find that quality vs. quantity makes a big difference. When it comes to the makeup we wear, we often look for a foundation with better coverage and makeup that does more for your skin than making you look pretty, which is why mineral makeup is highly recommended.
What’s in mineral makeup?
Mineral makeup is made up of minerals, such as iron oxide, talc, zinc oxide, and titanium oxide. These minerals are broken down into tiny particles to create makeup. Most big brand companies carry mineral makeup, free of preservatives, chemical dyes, and fragrances, which often cause damage to the skin.
Mineral makeup is recommended for all skin types, especially if you have sensitive skin. People that suffer from acne, often see that they stop breaking out after using mineral makeup. In addition, it helps protect your skin from sun damage since ingredients like titanium dioxide and zinc oxide are both natural sunblocks.
