Did you know that all makeup can actually be considered mineral makeup? The same mineral ingredients in mineral makeup are also found in traditional makeup. The difference is what mineral makeup does not contain. This includes synthetic ingredients such as preservatives, parabens, mineral oil, dyes, and fragrance. However, if you use mineral makeup, you may need a product upgrade for a reason that is more than skin-deep.
Mineral makeup has evolved from its early coarse, chuncky formulas. Today’s mineral makeup is made with smaller particles. This makes for a smooth, refined look. However, these smaller particles can adversely effect your health.
The tiny particles of the powder formulas can be easily inhaled into your lungs during makeup application. Mica, in particular, is a mineral found in most mineral makeup. However, when used for industrial purposes, construction workers who come into contact with it wear masks to protect their lungs from scarring. Experts, such as Dr. Oz, warn that long-term use and inhalation of minerals in makeup can lead to inflammation, irritation, and lung disease.
Mineral makeup is a healthier choice for your skin, but avoid the risks that result from inhalation by using a liquid formula instead of a powder formula. Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics makes an outstanding liquid mineral foundation. It provides excellent coverage with a natural finish and is formulated with skin-nourishing ingredients.
Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics offers several ways to upgrade your mineral makeup. Replace your potentially hazardous loose powder with a liquid formula, a creme formula, and a pressed powder formula.
