Mineral cosmetics are recommended by Cosmetologists and beauty experts because minerals don’t block the skin pores. On the contrary they benefit the skin and give the user a natural healthy glow. The skin needs to breathe just like we do and when studying Chinese Medicine I realized how the skin is an extension of the lungs therefore keeping the skin free of debris and toxins become an issue of health, as well as beauty.
Mineral makeup, eye shadow and foundation are the mainstay of my cosmetic bag. Minerals do not fade, crease, and can handle moisture like rain or perspiration. They are the best choice for all day use and for those special occasions where you don’t want to have to do touch ups. You can trust minerals to stay put. I suspect that when I see great looking skin on actors and TV personalities that they are using minerals because their cosmeticians understand the benefits of lighter, easy to remove makeup that works great under the lights and heat these personalities must endure, day after day.
You will find when researching drug store cosmetics and body care products that mineral oil and petroleum are the key ingredients of many lotions, soaps, baby oil, Vaseline, and many of the baby skin care items. Mineral oil is not beneficial to the skin or body because it is fossil fuel that can block pores, stop the skin from breathing and releasing debris. In addition these oils are absorbed by the skin, passed down the intestinal tract and absorb fat soluble vitamins from the body. Note that we are not talking about mineral oil when we talk about mineral cosmetics. Dry mineral powder foundation, eye shadow and blush are in fact beneficial to the skin and body.
Nature has a bounty of beneficial herbs, botanicals and oils that can be used to benefit the skin and body. There has never been a better time to use organic products as we watch our bodies and environment struggle against the toxic load we are heaping on ourselves and our earth. We are a microcosm of our earth and we all know the changes the earth is displaying as a signal to let us know something must change. She can no longer endure this seeming endless on slot of abuse we heap on her. Also we are seeing more incidences of disorders caused by toxins we ingest. Now is the time to look after your skin and body to gain or sustain your health, as well as, our mother earths.
