Natural Mineral Makeup is Good for your Skin

Filed under :Natural Mineral Makeup

Mineral makeup is one of the hottest trends in the beauty market today. Natural, earth-based makeup has grown in popularity in the last decade as we strive to become healthy and “green” and we see the need to integrate natural, organic products into our lives.

Skin is a living, breathing tissue that covers and protects the body, but it also absorbs substances that come into contact with it.  Just as prescription drugs can be delivered through our skin via a patch – makeup and skin care products are also absorbed by our skin.  It is important to use both natural skincare and natural makeup products that are chemical, pesticide and paraben free.

All natural mineral makeup is free of harsh preservatives, fragrances, and synthetic dyes.  Many of these artificial ingredients are the culprits that can irritate sensitive skin. Consumers love mineral makeup because it does not contain these harmful ingredients, and they are doing something good for their skin.

Mineral makeup is as natural as it gets and it does not require the synthetic preservatives to maintain the shelf life of the products.  It is manufactured using finely ground stone such as mica, titanium dioxide and zinc oxide – minerals that come straight from the earth.  These minerals are used to create the powders free of potentially toxic ingredients, such as talc. There is a demand to produce cosmetics that beautify, but that also offer health benefits as well.

Mineral make-up is made from minerals that have natural healing qualities. Ingredients such as zinc oxide and titanium dioxide actually have anti-inflammatory properties.  This can be beneficial if you have skin conditions such as acne or rosacea that cause the face to redden.  Not only will mineral makeup conceal the condition, but it will also help to correct the inflammation.

The rich colors are drawn from natural iron oxides instead of synthetic dyes. Mineral eye shadows and blushes are available in every hue you can imagine. So, you’ll never have to give up the colors you crave.

The exceptionally silky textured minerals in this natural makeup give long lasting coverage with a lightweight natural feel, not the powdery look caused by many talc-based products.  Mineral powder foundations have a light and airy texture. These mineral powders reflect light to help skin look even and smooth, instead of caking into fine lines like many traditional foundations.

Most mineral products are extremely intense and may be used very sparingly. The loose powder foundations and blushes are very popular varieties and can be buffed into the skin using a wide brush.

Mineral makeup also helps protect your skin from the sun’s damaging rays.  Many mineral ingredients offer the skin protection by blocking the sun’s rays from penetrating the skin. The minerals (with titanium dioxide) tend to stay on the skin rather than be absorbed by it, therefore blocking the UV rays. The light reflective minerals provide a healthy glow and protection from the sun.

Renaud Naturals‘ mineral makeup contains no talc, perfumes, dyes, alcohol, or comedogenic ingredients, and uses only the purest ingredients available. Isn’t it time you went “natural” in your makeup as well as your skincare? It’s  great for all ages, skin types, and skin tones.
