12-05-2015   What’s the Difference Between Mineral Makeup and Regular Makeup?

By Sia  |  Category : 

Given all the hype about mineral makeup over the last few years, it’s hard to understand the difference between mineral makeup and normal makeup. The simple answer: the main thing that sets mineral makeup apart from other types of makeup isn’t what it contains, but what it doesn’t. True mineral makeup should be free from parabens, fragrance, talc, preservatives, oil or other harsh chemicals.

What are the benefits of mineral makeup?

Mineral makeup is ideal for sensitive or blemish-prone skin, which can become irritated or clogged by heavier formulas. It contains less moisture than regular makeup, leading to a longer-shelf life. Mineral makeup is ideal for people who have experienced adverse reactions from using regular makeup, such as burning, stinging or itchy skin. If you often find yourself breaking out or if your skin isn’t feeling like you think should, it might be time to try mineral makeup.

What kind of mineral makeup should you get?

Not all mineral makeup is formulated the same way. Many products in the market include the term ‘mineral,’ but the minerals they use might be coated in parabens or silicones, which can cause negative reactions – sometimes even prematurely aging your skin. When you choose a mineral makeup, pay close attention to the product’s ingredients and opt for ones with the most natural ingredients. Authentic mineral makeup should only contain skin friendly ingredients such as Iron Oxides, Mica, Titanium Dioxides, Vitamins and other botanical or natural ingredients.
