Who would wish to reveal the dark spots on face just because the make-up got washed off due to tears or sweat? About 30 years back mineral make-up came with the solution and brought water proof make-up for those who need to retain their make-up in all conditions.
Mineral make –up is in vogue not just because of its water proof qualities but also because they are made up of natural minerals grounded from the earth. These cosmetics do not contain chemicals, preservatives, perfumes, alcohols and et al. They are natural and do not show after effects on the skin.
After a touch up with a mineral make-up one does not feel that the face has been masked or painted. These make – ups leave a long lasting glow on the skin and allow the skin to breathe. They are hypoallergenic and do not clog the pores. Being light they are suitable for sensitive skins and for skins that are prone to various skin problems like acne and pimples etc. Women who are unable to use make- up because of skin disorders are able to give a perfect finish to their faces with the mineral make –ups.
Cosmetics with minerals consist of triple milled minerals like titanium, gold, zinc, magnesium and aluminum. These minerals prevent the wrinkles and the fine lines on face are hidden. Most mineral make-ups come with a SPF rating of 15, hence, protecting the skin from ultra violet rays of the sun. In simple terms, they protect against skin tan by working as a sun block; this is due to the high content of zinc oxide and titanium. These make-ups have skin nourishing qualities and are easy to apply and remove. They last for long hours without smudging and even if they are worn while sleeping they remain fresh on the face when one wakes up after a long sleep.
Some skin types are allergic to certain minerals and when mineral make-ups are applied on these skins people may feel some irritation or may even see signs of aging on their skin. This does not mean that mineral make- ups cause the problem but the skin is resistant to certain minerals. It is always advisable to test the make- up on some part of the body before it is applied on the face.
Mineral make- ups come in the form of blushes and powder foundations called compact. They are also available as eye shadows, eye liners, lipsticks and et al. So try some mineral make- up for a new radiance on the skin.
