First, it contains no preservatives, parabens, mineral oils, chemical colors and
Both types of makeup containing minerals in the form of zinc oxide, titanium dioxide, iron oxide and others.
Mineral cosmetics are suitable for women with sensitive skin, as it contains no oil, no negative impact on skin prone to acne, says dermatologist Dr. Neil Schultz.
Dermatology specialist Dr. Brooke Jackson of Chicago, which is also used mineral makeup, it recommended in patients with rosacea and eczema.
Mineral makeup can not take the place of moisturizer product for acne or antieydzhing serum, but offers some advantages in terms of skin care.
Cosmetics provides some protection from the sun. Titanium dioxide and zinc oxide contained in the products help block the penetration of sunlight. Of course, prolonged sun exposure is recommended to use a sunscreen.
Zinc oxide also has anti-inflammatory properties and because it contains a higher percentage in mineral makeup than traditional, it may be useful to soothe irritated skin.
Are there risks of using mineral makeup? According to some claims micronized mineral makeup is ultra-small particles called nanoparticles that can penetrate the skin barrier and cause potentially dangerous effects.
Other experts say there is no cause for concern. If the particles are actually the size of nanoparticles, they are useless in the makeup because it will become transparent and will not offer coverage, says expert Perry Romanowski.
According to some reports, it is recommended to address the content of bismuth oxychloride - a compound that gives pearly finish of makeup. It is believed that can cause skin irritation and can aggravate acne. But the risk is higher mainly in people with hypersensitive skin. For most women, bismuth oxychloride is safe, experts say.
Randomly selected participants in the study had been treated more friendly to women who are protected from harmful sun rays and regularly used cosmetic products compared to women who have engaged the services of a plastic surgeon. The latter seems far more arrogant and vain, sharing participants in the study.
"This study is important because it shows that although public opinion is necessary, it is nice to look younger, surgical interventions can have a negative impact on the social level." Said Dr. Allison Chastiyn, Professor of Psychology University of Toronto.
"Despite the rapid development of industry rejuvenation, survey results show that such extreme actions are not widely accepted in society." Say researchers.
The study involved 260 representatives of the fair sex, who have rated the appearance of two groups of women aged 50, 60 or 70 years. The first group of them regularly use face cream and the second - Botox injections. Half of the participants were young (mean age 18 years), the other half in adults (70 years).
Older people have reacted very positively to the fact that women use different techniques to combat aging, but not the younger girls. All participants concluded that women using the cream for the face appear less vain unlike any other.
In another study, 100 volunteers were evaluated women who use one of the following four techniques for rejuvenation:
- avoid exposure to direct sunlight
- use of facial creams,
- use of Botox
- and face lifting.
Again, more like women who use less invasive means of rejuvenation and are not so drastic.
According to the survey more negative look at middle-aged people than older people, who lie under the knife.
