Mineral makeup products have taken the market by storm. Sadly, a lot of companies are also getting into it even if some do not use all natural ingredients in making their merchandise. This is why you should be careful when you go shopping and here are a few things you should know when you go and buy these products.
First, find out what brands sell mineral makeup. If you don’t know where to start, ask your dermatologist or do some research online. It will be helpful to ask know how much each one costs and then compare their prices. Should a company offer a 30 day free trial, sign up so you can test it for yourself.
Next, check the ingredients. Mineral makeup products should be made of natural ingredients. If you find something written that you have never heard of before, again do some research to find out where it comes from or ask your dermatologist. Keep in mind that some of these ingredients can be a skin irritant or at worse a toxin and in any case, you don’t want this to get on your skin.
Some of the ingredients the mineral makeup product you are looking at must have are mica, titanium dioxide, zinc oxide, and coloring agents like ultramarine blue or ferric ferrocyanide. If it has bismuth, bismuth oxychloride or talc, forget about it because these are examples of skin irritants. Parabens on the other hand have been linked to breast cancer and premature skin aging so avoid it as well since the purpose of putting on makeup is to look younger and radiant.
Mineral makeup comes in different colors especially for stuff like the eye shadows and a lot more. The beauty of mineral makeup is that it makes people think you are not wearing makeup so before you buy it, find out which one matches your skin tone. So be sure that the shade you choose is not too dark or too light making it so obvious that are wearing makeup.
