The Benefits of Mineral Makeup

It’s no secret that lovers of skincare take pride in developing and maintaining the daily skincare routines that provide their skin with all of the ingredients, love and care that it needs.

A standard skincare procedure generally includes cleansing, exfoliating, serums, moisturisers, and oils (not to mention the masks, skincare tools and in-clinic treatments) to ensure that the skin stays hydrated, moisturised, healthy and generally, taken care of.

But what about everyday makeup? Are there products that impact our skin in a positive way, just like our skincare does?

After all the work that gets put into having a great skin “base”, it seems a waste to apply makeup that could possibly cause a 'skin health downgrade'. But, there might be an answer to the skincare struggle. That answer is mineral makeup. Let’s dive into the newly launched Jane Iredale, to discover some of the benefits of mineral makeup.

Mineral makeup is better for the environment

Mineral Makeup is generally vegan and cruelty-free, and never tested on animals. That’s a big yes from us!

Mineral makeup is often non-irritating and non-comodegenic (meaning it won’t clog your pores)

Containing no harmful filler or synthetic ingredients, mineral makeup is a great option for acne-prone, sensitive or rosacea skins. Most mineral makeups are also formulated without artificial fragrances and colours, which means your skin has less chance of having an adverse reaction!

Mineral makeup offers natural, but buildable coverage

Fresh and dewy skin is in! The last thing we want in 2021 is cakey or patchy makeup. Many mineral makeup products offer a natural and flawless finish, with the option of building the coverage up, minus the cakey and thick look.

Mineral makeup provides added sun protection and goodies for your skin.

Thanks to the zinc oxide and titanium dioxide that high-quality mineral makeup contains, mineral makeup often provides a natural protection from the sun. We would not recommend relying on your makeup for your full sun protection factor (SPF), but it is an added layer of protection on top of your everyday sunscreen.

A note: not all mineral makeup is created equal, so it’s important to always read the ingredients and stick to reputable brands. Soho Skincare offers several mineral makeup brands for your convenience.
