Mineral makeup, once used strictly by cult beauty enthusiasts and ladies recovering from chemical peels, is gaining footing with the beauty-loving public—and for good reason. Besides being preservative-free, authentic mineral makeup touts the following feel-good benefits:
• Ensures complete coverage for all types of skin.
• Includes titanium dioxide, a natural form of sunscreen.
• Won’t clog pores or aggravate acne, rosacea or skin allergies.
• Inert minerals ban the proliferation of bacteria.
