If you've ever wondered what the hype around mineral makeup is all about, we've got you covered! Here at Celcius we stock, use and LOVE several mineral makeup brands including Youngblood, Jane Iredale, Glo Minerals and Inika.
Here are just some of the benefits you will experience when going mineral:
The most common ingredients in mineral makeup include iron oxides, zinc oxide, mica, and titanium dioxide. They're free of synthetic colours, preservatives, fragrances and other baddies like PEG's, parabens and petrochemicals. Hallelujah!
Zinc & titanium dioxide are natural physical SPF's that offer up to SPF30 protection. This is great news for anyone who is sensitive to the chemical SPF ingredients like Oxybenzone & Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate or Benzyl Salicylate - or maybe you just prefer not to put extra chemicals on your face if you don't have to! And lets be honest, in today's society, less is best, right?
Gentle & Safe
Anyone who suffers from any skin condition like rosacea, eczema, dermatitis or sensitive skin in general will find great benefit from switching to a mineral makeup, especially a medical-grade brand like Jane Iredale.
Dermatologists also recommend non-comedogenic formulas for those that have oily or acne prone skin as they're free of ingredients that cause pore blockage, which ultimately leads to whiteheads, blackheads, and other flare-ups.
They look GREAT!
The right mineral foundation will give you a natural glow—kind of like a soft focus Instagram filter. As far as texture, we recommend looking to ultra-light, super-fine powder that won't cling to dry patches, as well as liquid foundation that is sheer, hydrating, and blends with ease.
