Why we love mineral makeup at WDC

We’ve all heard about mineral makeup, but what exactly is it and is it better for your skin? We answer these questions and more.

What is mineral makeup? Mineral makeup contains natural minerals such as Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide that are milled or micronized into tiny particles to create makeup. It generally does not contain oils, waxes, fragrances or preservatives found in conventional makeup. Mineral makeups also contain an antioxidant blend of vitamins and are non-comedogenic.

How is mineral makeup better for my skin? The minerals provide broad spectrum UVA and UVB sun protection with the zinc oxide and titanium dioxide it contains. The antioxidant blend provides nutrients that are vital for maintaining the health of your skin while protecting it from further damage. The antioxidants contained in mineral makeup such as Green Tea Extract, Zinc and Vitamin C have anti-inflammatory properties that help improve the appearance and condition of acne and rosacea-prone skin.

WDC is now carrying Glo-Minerals makeup and we are excited to provide their award-winning formulations to our patients to complete your skincare routine with the flawless coverage that Glo-Minerals provides. The minerals are triple-milled which makes them ultra-fine to ensure that every application provides even, continuous coverage that lasts. Glo-Minerals base formulations contain no perfumes or chemical dyes and are 100% talc-free which makes them suitable for almost all skin types and conditions.
