Mineral cosmetics has been produced for thirty or more years by now, but of course they are inspired by the oldest beauty formulas. Modern beauty products, unfortunately, especially ones produced in twentieth century, had ingredients that didn’t make skin look natural at all. Typical foundation or powder from sixties or seventies was heavy, covering, giving an effect of a mask. Apart from that typical cosmetics that could be bought in drugstore were full of chemicals: preservatives, emulsifiers, dyes and alcohol. All these ingredients were chosen to make a cream or foundation smell nicely, be fresh for a long time and kill bacteria, but such an amount of artificial content was not beneficial in the long run. New mineral formula was designed in seventies as an alternative for heavy, unnatural, mask-like make-up. From then to now mineral cosmetics were re-designed and now are very popular, as they give natural look, are safe for everybody and may have some therapeutic activity for skin with problems.
Best mineral makeup is not only beautifying but also helps your skin to be healthy. Using mineral cosmetics regularly may help you to look younger. Mineral cosmetics give you a natural sun protection, so your skin does not get sun-damaged. It is appropriate for oily skin as it tightens the pores and makes them look smaller. It works well on skin suffering from acne and it soothes the redness. It does not contain ingredients that may cause allergic reactions (the most common allergic ingredients in ordinary beauty products are dyers, artificial scents and preservatives, and mineral cosmetics do not contain them).
You can choose best mineral makeup cosmetics from variety of brands; some of them are really affordable and of good quality, such as E.L.F. Studio, which offers fine mineral cosmetics that are fully natural and not tested on animals, although you can also pick up from luxurious brands. However, the price of a product is not always the trustful indicator of its quality.
