Summer is out and fall is in. The transition from summer to fall is making your skin go haywire. You have dry patches here, oily patches there. You don’t want to put anything on your face, especially makeup, for the fear of irritating your skin. Well worry no more because mineral makeup is here to the rescue!
Mineral makeup has no irritants such as talc (which can stretch the pore wall), fragrances (which can clog your pores), alcohol and aluminum. It’s great for all skin types whether you have oily, dry, acne, wrinkled or combination skin. It can also be combined with acne medicine because it’s compatible with Retin A, a medication derived from Vitamin A used for treatment of acne and wrinkles. If you think that’s great, mineral makeup also contains sunscreen which is the important daily regimen that people forget to do but should no matter rain or shine.
Need another reason why mineral makeup is truly wonderful? Get this, if your face is sensitive after a facial (chemical peel or laser procedure) the makeup is anti-inflammatory and healing because of zinc oxide and it has inert materials that cannot support bacteria this way your makeup doesn’t “spoil” whether on your skin or in the container. In fact, the foundations are so pared down that it’s literally ground up rocks and crystals.
It also works with humidity which is great because if you sweat, your makeup stays put. So grab your mineral makeup and run around the block. Who says you can’t look beautiful while you exercise?
