Using Lavender In Mineral Powder Makeup

 
 

Lavender Plants In Rows

 

There is a bewildering array of cosmetics available to those who want to look their best (and that must be nearly everybody!) but one of the priorities must be to find a healthy makeup for skin. Mineral powder makeup uses natural ingredients to work with the skin for optimum benefits.

This means mineral powder makeup uses ingredients not previously associated with cosmetics. One of these is lavender.

Lavender has always been associated with perfume and aromatherapy to encourage good sleep and reduce anxiety but other uses are now becoming better known. Extracts from this plant have now been found to combat respiratory disorders, remove lice from the hair, help digestion, relieve pain and help the immune system but research has also shown lavender has benefits for the skin too.

The oil from lavender has antiseptic and antifungal properties and can be used to treat disorders such as acne, psoriasis, athlete’s foot, inflammation, wounds, cuts and sunburn. It has been found to help the formation of scar tissue.

Lavender has anti-inflammatory properties and encourages better circulation so, when it is used in a healthy makeup for skin, there is reduced redness and blotchiness. Skin benefits from a better distribution of oxygen and the improvements in circulation promote this too.

This medicine cabinet in a bottle was reported as far back as 1910, when French chemist Rene Gattefosse discovered how immediately plunging a burned hand into lavender oil allowed the burn to recover quickly without scarring. Having said that, the ancient Greeks and Romans would introduce lavender oil to their baths and use it as incense.

Extracts from this useful plant can also combat the effects of stress and external toxins as well as smelling great. One starts to wonder why any makeup line would not include lavender in its ingredients.

Generally lavender oil is hypoallergenic so is useful for mineral makeup powder for those with sensitive skin. If you are looking for a makeup to benefit your skin, then it would be useful to find one that includes lavender in its ingredients.

Take a look at the new line of Proto-col Baked Mineral Cosmetics, which use lavender oil extensively.
