In this month of love, February I have found an exciting new love affair which creates the appearance of a perfect complexion while making skin healthier in the long run. And you wonder what that is? Mineral makeup! Mineral makeup is exactly what it sounds like: cosmetics made mostly of naturally occurring minerals mined from the earth, such as, zinc oxide, iron oxide, titanium dioxide, mica and ultramarine. These minerals provide not only pigment, but also sun protection and anti-inflammatory properties. The fabulousness of mineral makeup is nothing new since it has really been around for thousands of years. It helped the Egyptians to protect from the damaging effects of the sun. The are a plethora of benefits for using mineral makeup … Let’s discuss some of these benefits below and also, how you can get started with mineral makeup to create a finish smooth skin look similar to the one Cleopatra had!
