Mineral makeup has been causing quite a buzz. Most people will say that it gives the best coverage and that it is light. But the benefits of mineral makeup do not end there. You might have heard that certain traditional cosmetics lead to breakouts and wrinkles. The truth is that mineral makeup does the opposite.
First of all, you must know that traditional cosmetics have colors, chemicals, scent created artificially made in the laboratory. Unfortunately, they do not have anything healthy to offer to the skin. So by wearing it, you stay vulnerable to environmental damage coming from UVA and UVB rays of the sun. According to scientists, both of these rays rapidly increase building up of wrinkles and can bring in cancer to your skin.
What about mineral makeup? It contains ingredients derived from the rocks found in the nature. Some examples are titanium dioxide and zinc oxide. Research has shown long time ago that both of these ingredients protect human skin from the UVA and UVB rays. In the past, they were used in making sunscreen creams and lotion.
Interestingly, titanium dioxide is also known to protect skin from discoloration. Besides, zinc oxide is a highly effective product. It does not only sooth the skin, but also saves it from other negative reactions. So by wearing mineral makeup, you will be basically keeping your skin healthy. But there is still one problem. Not all companies come up with mineral makeup cosmetics that are 100 percent natural. Do you know what methylparaben is? It is a preservative used in many different products. A few mineral makeup products also contain it. According to research, some skin types coming in contact with this preservative can end up with bad reactions whose result may turn out to be breakouts. That is why, it is highly recommended that you stay away from mineral makeup containing methylparaben.
I did a research to find the mineral makeup cosmetics which do not carry this ingredient. I am pleased to assert that I have actually found a few positive results. Just see below. To read about the ingredients, just enlarge the images containing writings.
The listed mineral makeup products are safe to use. Yet before you buy any of them, do additional research on them. Sometimes you might not receive any benefits from these brands simply due to the fact that they are not compatible with your skin type. So read their additional reviews written especially by users whose skin type matches with yours. Even after buying, apply a small amount of the product to your arm to see if it gives you allergic reaction.
