The Benefits of Mineral Makeup

The Real Purity Team
In recent years, the popularity of mineral makeup has risen dramatically – but are they worth the high price tag? Read on below to see how we define mineral makeup and what benefits it could have for your skin.
What Is Mineral Makeup?
Mineral makeup is a term for cosmetic products that are made using naturally-sourced, mineral ingredients. Typically, mineral makeup will be free from emollient oils and waxes, dyes, preservatives and additives. Mineral makeup typically feels lighter on the skin than conventional types of makeup, and it is usually ideal for skin that’s easily irritated.
Benefits of Mineral Eye Shadow
The main benefit to using mineral eye shadow is that it's less irritating to your skin. This is because typically, mineral makeups are free from the fragrances and preservatives that are so often the cause of redness, irritation and breakouts. This can be especially important for the delicate skin around your eyes, which can make mineral eye shadows especially appealing. >>Shop Real Purity's mineral-based Eyeshadows here
In general, mineral makeup will also go on more smoothly than other types of conventional makeup, as well as come off more easily at the end of the day because it lacks binders and waterproof polymers. This is good news for acne suffers, because it means that mineral foundations and powders smooth out blemishes and dark spots, while still being less likely to clog pores and cause irritation in the first place. >>Shop shades of Real Purity's mineral-based Health Glow Cream Foundation or Pressed Powders here
Lastly, some argue that mineral makeup can provide an extra layer of protection against the sun, while also soothing easily inflamed skin. Although mineral makeup shouldn’t be a substitute for sunscreen, it can provide an additional barrier that will keep harmful rays from damaging facial skin.
