Using mineral makeup can transform how your skin looks and feels. Unlike traditional makeup which often works to cover up or cause imperfections and blemishes, studies have shown that mineral makeup works to improve your skin and fight acne causing bacteria instead of causing it.

If you’ve never jumped onto the mineral makeup bandwagon and are wondering where to start, this is your step by step guide to the top 5 mineral makeup products to build your collection, courtesy of the highly acclaimed mineral cosmetics brand Youngblood.

The benefits of mineral makeup

Makeup was initially formulated to mask the skin and form a layer to mask any imperfections. Over the decades, makeup has become more of an enhancement rather than a coverup, with natural beauty being all the rage.

Mineral makeup not only provide optimal coverage, but also leaves your skin looking natural with freckles and beauty spots still peaking through.

The benefits mineral makeup are endless, but one of the most notable is that it does wonders for people with sensitive skin or skin conditions such as rosacea, acne, dermatitis and eczema. If you suffer with any problem skin, you’ll understand the struggle of traditional makeup, where these formulas often cause cracking on the skin, dry patches, or irritation, which is not ideal.

Youngbloods mineral makeup is free from all synthetic ingredients, as well as talc and other fillers. Used only to enhance your natural skin rather than cover it. It is also non-comedogenic meaning this makeup will not block your pores, allowing the skin to breathe. This is especially important for those suffering with acne.

Whilst these products are on the skin, the minerals are actually working to improve your skin throughout the day. Think of it like a facial, while you are wearing makeup!
