Not only does mineral makeup look and feel fantastic on your skin but you're doing something good for our planet too!
Some people feel that going green is too difficult, that it takes too much of an effort. The truth is that you don't have to go completely green overnight. If you have an earnest desire to participate in taking care of our planet, I recommend just taking baby steps. Before you know it, you'll be surprised at how many good things you are doing for our environment without thinking about it. It will become second nature to you.
For example, you can start by doing something as simple as switching the cosmetics you use to a brand that is eco-friendly. There are quite a few out there and with the growing interest of the population to go greener, more and more high quality organic and green makeup brands are popping up.
If you haven't heard the term mineral makeup lately, you've been living under a rock (pun completely intended). Mineral cosmetics
are very popular presently. Not only because they are so much healthier for your skin but also because once applied correctly they make your skin look flawless! With a high quality and pure mineral makeup line your face will look and feel so gorgeous, that you will never want to return to your old dirty traditional cosmetics. These different mineral cosmetics brands vary in quality and price points so please read the labels before you purchase. Remember, many times you get what you pay for.
Mineral make-up is different from traditional petroleum based cosmetics. It is made entirely from crushed, sterilized minerals.
In addition to not being reliant on crude oils, Mineral Makeup
contains no talc, mineral oil, alcohol, artificial colors, synthetic dyes or parabens, which means you're getting none of the pollution, animal testing, or energy waste associated with conventional cosmetic products. Removing these ingredients from the manufacturing process also means removing a frightening amount of potentially toxic chemicals from your skin routine, and from the water system when you wash it off, so you can feel good about not polluting your body or our waterways.
Allergic reactions are also rare because as stated above, there are no fragrances, dyes, or preservatives, while the main ingredients, zinc oxide and titanium dioxide (these are natural minerals), actually create a natural sunscreen for the skin.
Even better, high quality mineral cosmetics are highly pigmented and a little goes a long way! Which means it saves you money because your products will last you a long time and at the same time you are doing a great thing for our earth.
