According to Joel Schlessinger MD, mineral makeup is the best choice for healthy skin.

Many consumers are taking the time to check the ingredient labels of their skin care products to avoid using harmful formulas that aggravate their skin. Checking the labels of your cosmetics is another way to prevent irritation and maintain a healthy complexion. Mineral makeup products feature gentle formulas that nourish and protect skin. In this presentation, Joel Schlessinger MD discusses the benefits of switching to mineral cosmetics.

One of the main advantages of minerals is that they are non-comedogenic so they will not clog pores. This is ideal for anyone who suffers from acne, rosacea or other skin conditions that aggravate and inflame the complexion.

Non-mineral cosmetics often contain harsh ingredients, explains Joel Schlessinger MD.

Lipsticks, foundations, mascaras and eyeliners from the drugstore often contain additives and preservatives. Oils, waxes, fragrances and dyes in these products can irritate sensitive skin and cause cosmetics to feel heavy on the complexion. These formulas clog pores and prevent oxygen from reaching cells, which can cause irritating skin symptoms to worsen.

Mineral makeup is made with natural ingredients including iron oxides, zinc oxide and titanium dioxide. These minerals are finely milled to create lightweight formulas that provide even coverage.

Joel Schlessinger MD recommends his favorite mineral makeup brands.

Mineral cosmetics are ideal for all skin types and tones. The natural ingredients nourish skin and often provide protection against both UV rays and free radicals. jane iredale is a makeup line that uses high-quality ingredients to create foundations, concealers and other products that benefit the complexion. Another top brand is Colorescience, which makes an entire line of sun protection products formulated with natural minerals for advanced defense against UV rays.
