The Beauty of Natural Mineral Cosmetics

The trend in recent times is to find healthy options as we become more aware of the effects products have on us. This is equally true whether we are discussing what we put inside our bodies or what goes on the outside. It is hardly surprising therefore that natural alternatives to cosmetics are becoming more popular.

Some brands of cosmetics over the years have contained various chemicals, which have had various effects such as clogging pores (comodogenic) and have lead to many women not wearing cosmetics at all. Of course it is not long since women stopped using arsenic to whiten their faces so things are gradually getting better!

Natural mineral cosmetics have proved to work with the skin and have enabled women to look beautiful without harming their health.

It is always better to use a quality brand.

Such mineral cosmetics have actually been around for over thirty years but are only now being seen as a natural effective alternative to conventional makeup. As technology has improved natural mineral cosmetics have been able to remove such unnecessary additives as parabens, talcs, waxes, dyes, fragrances, oils, fillers and other chemicals.

Parabens are preservatives used in cosmetics (and in food) but have been connected to breast cancer and a reduction in testosterone and the male reproductive abilities. It affects both sexes. Talc has been shown to be related to asbestos and has been linked to cancer of the ovaries and lungs.

So natural mineral cosmetics are not only non-comodogenic but are also hypoallergenic. Many contain natural sunscreen too and some have added vitamins A, C and E to give the skin a healthy glow. Vitamin A helps the production of new cells in the skin and allows a temporary improvement in the production of collagen and vitamin E has several advantages, not least its use as an anti-oxidant. Vitamin E protects the skin from pollution, ultra-violet light and drugs. Curiously another advantage of Vitamin E is it controls the over-production of Vitamin A. Vitamin C has many of the benefits of the other two but also helps boost the immune system.

Natural mineral cosmetics are waterproof and long lasting and can be worn in bed: a change from previous cosmetics that had to be removed. The best advantage however is the skin can breathe and anti-inflammatory zinc oxide often found in the mineral makeup powder can reduce blemishes.

Perhaps one disadvantage of this kind of makeup is it can be more difficult to apply. However use of the right kind of brush and application in thin layers built up can alleviate this problem.

Ranges available provide a good variety of foundations, blushers, bronzers, concealers, eye shadows, lip-glosses and mascara, so there is no shortage of choice. The powders can even be mixed to vary the shades available even more or to match your skin tones exactly. If you have not tried natural mineral cosmetics yet then this might be the time to do so.
