Many women tend to avoid wearing makeup because they worry about irritation, breakouts and other issues that are commonly associated with cosmetics. While going “au naturel” may fly when we’re younger, more mature skin types usually find that makeup can work wonders for the skin, enhancing features while also camouflaging difficult flaws.
Today’s natural cosmetics make it easy to reap the benefits of makeup without any of the side effects. Mineral cosmetics have exploded in recent years, offering full coverage foundations in formulas that are actually good for the skin. Natural minerals from rocks contain zinc and titanium which calm redness, soothe irritation, clear up blemishes and offer natural sun protection. These foundations are highly pigmented and very effective at covering even the most difficult blemishes.
After the success of mineral foundations, many cosmetics companies expanded their lines to include all kinds of makeup items such as mineral based lip color, blushes and eye shadows just to name a few. In addition to all of the exciting cosmetics for the face, new nail color formulations offer all of the eye popping shades of the past with more gentle and less irritating ingredients. This is truly a new era when it comes to natural cosmetics.
