Mineral Makeup: The Best Anti-Aging Makeup

Tiffany Holley
When people think of the words “anti aging” more than likely the first thought that comes to mind in terms of skin care products is anti-wrinkle cream. And while anti-aging creams and serums are great for preventing or erasing fine lines and wrinkles, there are also mineral based makeup products which are great for aging skin as well. Mineral makeup products are very kind to the skin because they are more pure than other makeup brands and do not contain irritants such as dyes, fragrances and binders so they are not as harsh in nature. As far as anti-aging properties, mineral makeup products from Skin Rx contain an ingredient called Palmarosa. Derived from the Palmarosa Plant, which is somewhat grass-like in appearance. It is known to moisturize the skin and to help stimulate cell regeneration. Natural mineral makeup also contains zinc oxide and titanium dioxide which work as a natural sunscreen to help prevent further sun damage and premature aging of the skin. While one should still apply a quality sunscreen with at least an SPF 30 anytime they expect to be exposed to the sun, these two ingredients do work to protect the skin better than if no sunscreen were used at all. As our skin ages, it becomes more fragile and loses much of the hydration it had in your youth. When skin is young, it can soak up and store moisture almost effortlessly and that is part of what gives off the youthful glow. Aging causes the skin’s elasticity to degenerate which leaves your face, and other parts of your body, feeling drier and less supple than in your more youthful years. An anti-aging skin care routine should include high quality skin care products that are specially formulated for maturing skin. Cleansers, moisturizers, exfoliation products, and even anti-aging makeup should be a part of your daily aging skin care regime.
