Here’s Why You Should Opt for Mineral Makeup this Summer

Summer is almost here, and that means that it’s time to find a makeup brand that won’t clog your pores, leaving you sweaty and dripping foundation. Well, it might just be the time to make the switch to mineral makeup.

At HealthCare Partners Family Medicine, in The Villages, Florida, Nelson Kraucak, MD, FAAP, and our team are here to provide you with the latest in medical and cosmetic enhancements. That’s why we’re proud to bring you this helpful guide on why mineral makeup is your best bet for the summer and, actually, always.

What is mineral makeup?

Mineral makeup is made out of finely ground minerals, such as zinc oxide, titanium dioxide, iron oxides, and talc. Mineral makeup is loose and powdery, because it doesn’t contain any potentially harmful additives or fillers to bind the makeup.

Mineral makeup is free of preservatives, parabens, and other chemicals that can damage your skin over time.

The benefits of mineral makeup

Here are a few of the major reasons why you should consider switching to mineral makeup:

Fewer clogged pores

When pores get clogged, acne results. Because mineral makeup has no unnatural fillers, it can help prevent pores from clogging, and thus help prevent breakouts. Furthermore, while mineral makeup won’t clear up acne you currently have, the high zinc content in it may soothe your acne.

Sun protection

Mineral makeup contains zinc oxide and titanium dioxide, both of which provide a physical barrier to the sun’s harmful UV rays. In fact, because mineral makeup has these ingredients ― which are found in sunscreen ― you won’t need to wear any added protection.   

Great for sensitive skin

Mineral makeup is great for sensitive skin. This is because mineral makeup contains no oils, silicone, alcohol, or harsh fragrances. So, if you’re someone who has strong reactions to makeup, then mineral makeup could be the perfect solution for you. 

Is mineral makeup right for you?

If you’re someone who has sensitive skin or pores that clog easily, or if you’re just looking for natural, additive-free makeup, then mineral makeup could be the perfect solution for you.
