What is mineral makeup?
Most women can relate to this scenario: You run out of makeup (or left it somewhere) and now you are at your favorite cosmetic store debating if you should try something new or stick with what you normally buy. You have heard of mineral makeup, but you’re not entirely sure what that means. At Touch MedSpa we always recommend mineral makeup, especially after any kind of laser treatment.
Mineral makeup is made up of just what you would expect- minerals! Iron, Zinc, titanium, talc and other minerals are ground up into a fine powder to create makeup. What makes Jane Iredale mineral makeup so popular is not what is in the makeup, but what’s not in it. Mineral makeup does not include many of the materials found in traditional makeup that are actually not good for the skin such as oils, dyes, fragrances, and preservatives. Some of these materials can be harmful to the skin and cause irritation. Mineral makeup is also different, in that it sticks to the skins natural oils, rather than seeping down into the pores. This mean it will let your skin breathe rather than blocking pores and causing further issues.
Who can really benefit from Jane Iredale mineral makeup?
Anyone’s skin can greatly benefit from mineral makeup! Women with acne-prone or oily skin can see less irritation and aggravation from using mineral makeup. Most traditional makeup contains oils, which can make acne and breakouts worse. Mineral makeup does not contain any oils, which makes it more suitable for this skin type. People with sensitive skin are less likely to have issues with mineral makeup because it does not contain many of the fragrances and dyes that can irritate sensitive skin.
There are many benefits to Jane Iredale mineral makeup. First, the zinc oxide that it contains is a natural sun protection ingredient. So mineral makeup can help protect your skin from damaging UV rays. Although, it should not be used in place of UV protection, it will add to your daily protection. Another benefit of mineral makeup is that it has natural anti -inflammatory agents, which is why we suggest using it after any laser treatment. It will help calm and soothe the skin.
Mineral makeup will also last longer than traditional makeup it will not turn watery, or clumpy after a certain amount of time. You can keep mineral makeup for a good amount of time. It does not take much for basic coverage either. A little goes a long way, which will also prevent you from having to buy so often. Most women don’t realize there are many types of makeup that come in a mineral base. It is not just face powder and foundation, but also lipstick, eye shadows, bronzers, blush and primers.
