Advantages of Using Mineral Cosmetics
Girls today always want to look beautiful and younger so choosing the right make up is very important. In this article, we are going to discuss the benefits of using mineral cosmetics.
Like the name suggests, mineral makeup are made of mineral compounds such as minerals from the earth, without any of the chemicals, dyes, and preservatives found in traditional makeup. It is safer to use and is very suitable for all type of skins.
Mineral makeup provides a long lasting glow to your skin compared to traditional make up and does not leave your skin itchy or cause inflammation. It also keeps your face moisturizes all day long even in hot and dry weather. Mineral cosmetic can also cover acne, sunspots, redness and wrinkles flawlessly. If you consistently use it for a long term, it will also smooths and refines skin texture. Mineral cosmetics are also proven clinically to contain natural botanicals and antioxidants to instantly reveal softer, smoother and more youthful skin.
Another big advantage of mineral makeup is the claims of sun protection. Most mineral cosmetics contain sunscreen with the average of SPF 15. This is enough for daily protection against the sun while you are working and you need not wear additional sun protection. This is due mostly to the high content of titanium dioxide and zinc oxide; two ingredients commonly found in traditional sunscreen. Do take note if you plan to head to beach for a sunbath, you need to use additional sun protection lotion as these make up cannot be substitute for sun protection lotion.
You will be surprised that even though with such benefits from using mineral cosmetics, the price is still affordable. Compared to traditional cosmetics out there in the market, mineral cosmetics are usually cheaper about 10-20%. The reason why mineral cosmetic is simply more cost effective is because it depends more on word of mouth advertising. Do you know that traditional cosmetics spend millions on advertising by hiring professional models and running expensive adverting campaigns and the customers are the ones paying for it?
Most of the ingredients for mineral cosmetics come from third world countries such as Malaysia and Thailand. These countries practice the use of sustainable agriculture and reject the use of pesticide and genetic engineering. Due to these, by using mineral cosmetics you are in a way creating more job opportunities to these third world countries and at the same time help preserving Mother Nature.
