Mineral make-upSeptember 26, 2011
The reason why mineral make-up is a hot topic in the beauty world is mainly because it does not contain the emollient oils and waxes, fragrance, and preservative ingredients found in conventional make-up. Another advantage is that most mineral make-up is preservative and fragrance free, which means less irritation to the face.
If you are all into being green then wait just a second before start running to the make-up counter. Make sure you read the labels because if the label reads "mineral-enriched" or if the formulation is liquid or mousse; these products may contain ingredients such as paraben preservatives or dimethicone added for a smooth texture. Nonpowders might also contain moisturizers, antioxidant vitamins, or other ingredients that your skin can use, so it's up to you to weigh the benefits against your needs.
What I keep hearing is that mineral foundation can clear Up acne. However my research says otherwise, a article on Web MD states "it's unlikely that mineral makeup will clear up pimples, which can be caused by many factors, including hormonal fluctuations. The anti-irritating ingredients in it, such as zinc, can be soothing to inflammation, but it's not likely a cure-all, she adds." So basically it will not clear acne up, but it wont make it worse either.
Well so far that's all I have to say about Mineral Make-Up....check my blog later I'll have more to say lol
