Did you know that makeup can be an extension to your skincare routine? Yes, there’s makeup out there that’s actually beneficial for your skin and it's called Mineral Makeup.
But first, let's chat about your current makeup routine. Yep, we get it. Foundation is a personal choice and we all have a favourite. One that creates a complexion that we love so much we ignore that it might be causing more harm than good for our skin. Visually, it looks amazing, but did you know that your skin is able to absorb kilograms of chemicals each year from our makeup? With that being said, when picking your makeup make sure to steer clear of cheap fillers such as talc, artificial perfumes and comedogenic oils. These nasties will clog up your pores and increase the risk of sensitivities. Think of putting cling wrap all around your face. A suffocating thought right? Well, that’s practically what you’re doing to your skin each time you apply a foundation that isn’t mineral based.
A good quality and well formulated mineral makeup contains natural ingredients that are GOOD for your skin! Pure mineral makeup allows your skin to BREATHE! It acts like a second skin by excreting toxins, absorbing moisture, providing high levels of UVA/UVB protection and providing a physical barrier to environmental damage.
