Jeune Skin Care: Ask the Experts
Q. What are the benefits of mineral makeup?
A. If you think all foundations are thick and pore-clogging, you need to explore mineral cosmetics!
At UW Health Transformations Jeune Skin Care, we have tested and tried many mineral makeups before choosing Jane Iredale Mineral Cosmetics.
Jane Iredale makeup is a highly-sophisticated blend of minerals and pigments that are micro-pulverized to form microscopic flat crystals. These crystals overlap each other on the skin to form a filter that allows the skin to breathe and function normally while still protecting it from air-borne pollutants.
The staying power of the minerals is so great that they rarely need a touch-up during the day. And because these silky-feeling powders are water-resistant, they won't crease or smear.
Jane Iredale naturally-formulated mineral makeup has also been called "the skin care makeup." It is much better for your skin than traditional cosmetics, because it is not petroleum-based and does not contain filler ingredients that block your pores or irritate your skin. Mineral makeup is free from parabens, talc, synthetic chemicals and other filler ingredients contained in mainstream makeup.
Mineral makeup is composed of inert minerals that cannot support bacteria - therefore, mineral cosmetics are less likely to become contaminated compared to other makeup types. The anti-inflammatory properties help to calm and soothe irritated skin and are often tolerated by those who have skin allergies, rosacea and acne.
This is a reason dermatologists and plastic surgeons will recommend mineral makeup for patients following chemical peels and procedures. It provides sheer to full coverage and contains zinc oxide and titanium dioxide, which gives UVB and UVA sun protection.
