Regular Makeup Vs Mineral Makeup: Why Your Skin Is #Team Mineral!
Here at SBTC, we’re all about practicing what we preach. We LOVE skin! We love teaching about skin, we love working with skin, and we definitely love taking good care of our skin!
That’s why, when it came time to choose a range of post-treatment makeup foundations that could safely work hand-in-hand with our line-up of advanced skin treatment protocols and procedures, we went straight to our sisters at Australian Skin Institute and asked them to hook us up with their range of natural Mineral Makeup!
Why Choose Mineral Makeup?
Well, as the name suggests, Mineral Makeup is made from minerals such as iron oxides, zinc oxides, titanium oxide, mica and ultramarine - all natural ingredients harvested straight from Mother Earth!
These minerals are not only natural, but come with some skin-loving side effects - like boosting skin healing and helping to protect your skin from the sun. Mineral Makeup actually works like skincare. That’s why it’s the perfect choice for skin devotees who don’t want to sacrifice skin health for beauty.
Being light-weight and chemical free means that Mineral Makeup can be used on even the most sensitive of skins without fear of irritation. Acne breakouts, eczema, psoriasis and rosacea can all be concealed with Mineral Makeup without being aggravated - but instead soothed, protected and encouraged to heal.
Regular Makeup Vs Mineral Makeup: Here’s what the experts say...
ASI Product Developer and resident skin guru, Chelsea Wonka is our go-to skincyclopedia whenever we need the low down on skin care ingredients. Chelsea is an expert on skin science and loves to share her love and knowledge of active cosmeceutical ingredients. Here’s what she had to say about Regular Makeup Vs Mineral Makeup:
“Regular Makeup clogs your pores whereas Mineral Makeup is ‘non-comedogenic'."
Mineral Makeup is made of micronised minerals that are pulverised into a fine powder. Without the added oils, talcs and other nasties usually found in regular makeup, Mineral Makeup is able to sit weightless on the surface of the skin without seeping down into the pores. It’s perfect for oily skin and skins that are prone to acne or congestion because you can achieve great coverage while still allowing your skin to breath.
“Regular Makeup can irritate a sensitive skin while Mineral Makeup is soothing and healing.”
The added chemicals, perfumes, preservatives and alcohol found in regular makeup can often cause dryness, dehydration and photosensitivity that can then develop into allergies, rashes or skin damage. Mineral Makeup has none of these added extras that irritate the skin, making it ideal for use on sensitive skins or skin conditions such as eczema and rosacea.
The healing, soothing, and anti-microbial properties of zinc, titanium and iron oxides make Mineral Makeup suitable for using immediately after advanced skin procedures such as microdermabrasion, skin needling, IPL, laser photorejuvenation and even injectable treatments such as vampire facials, beauty boosters and fillers.
“Regular Makeup needs added sun protection but Mineral Makeup has it built-in.”
Titanium oxide and Zinc oxide, two of the main ingredients found in Mineral Makeup work to physically block out the damaging ultraviolet radiation from the sun. Of course if you are going to be in the direct sun for extended periods you should always use an appropriate strength SPF but it’s nice to know that day-to-day, going and coming from work or just doing your usual weekly routine, that your make-up is protecting your skin.
