Many cosmetics companies have come out with new mineral lines of makeup in recent years. And though most women know that mineral cosmetics are all-natural and good for their skin, some women are still hesitant to make the switch from traditional cosmetics.
Whatever you choose it will be more better for your skin then traditional cosmetics... most important, when you choose, need to have a look to list of ingredients. It should be all natural. It should have no fillers, no chemicals, no talc, no wax, no parabens, no petroleum, no oils or dyesÖ BX Minerals makeup is exactly like this: have no harmful ingredients, is pure minerals and all naturalsÖ and there is 5 reasons why to use BX Minerals:
As we already mention, that traditional makeup contains chemicals, oils and other additives that can either irritate sensitive skin or cause unnecessary breakouts. Makeup is actually good for people to wear, as long as they are not wearing products harmful to their skin. Most of the cheaper foundations, also some of the just named mineral, on the market have a list of ingredients that potentially harmful to your skin. BX Minerals makeup is the safest because it adheres to the natural oils in a personís skin and doesnít seep into the pores.
Makeup acts as a protecting agent against free radicals. Almost any barrier between your skin and the environment is good, so long as itís still letting your skin breathe, which most makeup doesnít. BX Minerals foundation (also other powders) allows your skin to breathe while still offering protection. Because of the use of titanium dioxide in most mineral products, itís also an excellent SPF. You canít beat a makeup that works with your natural body chemistry.
When mineral makeup is done right, it is much more versatile than most makeup. You can mix BX Minerals foundation with water, moisturizers and cremes to make a liquid foundation consistency if thatís what you like.
You can conceal with it or just use it as a light coverage. Loose powder mineral pigments can turn into anything you can think of. The loose powder pigments are what companies use to color cosmetics. Natureís Source carries these loose powder pigments with no additives, fillers, or dyes. It can be used as eye shadow, eyeliner, lip gloss, body shimmer, blush, etc. When working with the pure pigment it blends with almost anything.
Mineral cosmetics should have very few ingredients. Most mineral makeup has a base ingredient of mica. Mica does have a nemesis in the cosmetic industry, the nemesis is named ďtalc.Ē Do beware that talc is technically a mineral and used by almost every cosmetic company as their #1 ingredient, however it is a cheap and wasteful filler. Talc is soft and appealing to the touch yet itís adherence to the skin is incomparable to the elite mineral, mica. Mica has incredible skin adhering properties and is less cakey then talc. Mineral formulations do vary from company to company, researching the ingredients a company may use is very important because there are many companies on the market sneaking talc into their formulations. BX Minerals do not use talc, just mica! When you do find that perfect BX Minerals foundation itís almost impossible to go back to traditional makeup.
BX Minerals makeup is not only long lasting on your shelf but also on your skin. The pigment lasts a long time and a little goes a long way. With mineral foundation, using very little can give a basic coverage. It could be used more concentrated amount of foundation to conceal the areas that may need special attention. For extra coverage, could be used concealers or correctors. After that could be used some special powders, which makes BX Minerals makeup last a lot longer on your skin.
