Dermatologists love recommending mineral makeup and there's a good reason for it. It's fantastic for covering and correcting the skin. Made from minerals like mica, titanium dioxide and zinc oxide, mineral foundation is better for your skin than regular makeup. Below we expand on a few ways that mineral foundation helps to improve skin. mineral foundation

Coverage in Mineral Foundation

Traditional cosmetics often contain talc, a bulking agent that leads to a formula that’s heavier on the skin and less pigmented. It is cost-effective, providing more product for the pigment put in, which is why it's common practice for cosmetic companies. However, the inclusion of talc results in makeup users needing to apply more product for a good level of coverage. In contrast, mineral makeup does not have talc in its formulation but uses its own mineral pigments. Consequently, mineral foundation, unlike traditional foundations, does not feel 'cakey' on the skin, nor does it crease and settle into fine lines on the face. So you can get a flawless finish with a barely-there feel.

Mineral Foundation is Good for Different Skin Conditions

  • Rosacea: Since mineral makeup is free of harsh ingredients like talc and chemical dyes, it’s a good choice for those that suffer from rosacea.It is non-irritating and helps to effectively cover and correct surface redness caused by rosacea.
  • Acne: With a non-irritating, non-comedogenic formula, mineral foundation won’t exacerbate acne as it doesn't clog pores which can cause further breakouts.
  • Sensitive Skin: Mineral makeup is non-occlusive and allows the skin to breathe. So you can get the coverage you need for sensitive skin without suffocating and aggravating it.
