Are you using the right makeup for your skin, lifestyle and philosophy? Recently, there has been a drive from cosmetic companies to ensure the ingredients comprised of and the cosmetics themselves actually benefit the skin.
Mineral Cosmetics has been the industry ‘buzz’ word for the past few years with traditional cosmetic companies adding their own version of the Mineral Foundation to their ranges. However have you checked the ingredients?
True Mineral Foundations are made up entirely of minerals, which when pulped, become a silk-like powder consisting of Mica, Zinc Oxide, Titanium Dioxide and Iron Oxides.
These Minerals, by nature, scatter light, so light is deflected from the skin rather than be absorbed by it; this reduces the appearance of fine lines, larger pores and ‘Gods Flaws’, all the while offering excellent sun protection.
As well as, mineral cosmetics are also anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial, non-comedogenic and water-resistant! Here are some ingredients to avoid when choosing Mineral Foundation include Clay (sometimes disguised as ‘Kaolin’), which can dry the skin, or Bismuth Oxychloride, which can irritate sensitive or inflamed skin and if it contains talc – we all know this ingredient is to be avoided.
The cosmetic makeup, Visible Effects use Z-Cote uncoated Zinc which is standard by which all Zinc’s are graded, some companies use lower grades of Zinc Oxide to save money but these grades can often allow sun damage and the true excellence of Mineral Foundation is the natural built- in Sun Protection offered by the addition Zinc to the formulation.
Choose Mineral Cosmetics – Your skin will love you for it!
