Advantages of MMU

Allow me to discuss more on the advantages of mineral make up and maybe, just maybe, I could actually convince you to do the healthier switch. 😀
Did you know that conventional or tradition make up makeup comes in liquid form or uses a bonding agent to keep it together, mineral makeup is basically loose powder. Because it is dry, mineral makeup does not provide the right environment for bacterial growth, making it safe for long-term use. While a convetional makeup needs to be thrown away after their expiration day because of their moisture content, which bacteria uses to multiply and survive.
Everyone will agree with me that this country is probably the most humid, tropical one all over the globe which makes mineral make up perfect for use. Traditional make up does not, I repeat DOES NOT absorb excess oil or sweat, which mineral make up is good at. This explains why you almost never have to do retouches as often.
Traditional make up melts while mineral makep does not. Moreover, it can even withstand high humidity and will stay put on your face the entire day. 😀
Now all these makes me just about ready to throw away all my traditional ones down the garbage bin. I will do that as soon as I get a stash of my own MMU collection. 😀

Traditional vs. Mineral Make Up

Mineral makeup is today’s latest trend. It is now sold in department store counters raved about in fashion magazines. How do the various brands differ, and which one is best for you? How does mineral makeup differ really from traditional ones? Care to investigate?
Truth to tell, despite all the different brand names and marketing strategies, most mineral makeup has similar ingredients. Which is not very surprising. That’s why they are called mineral make up to begin with. Most commonly used minerals include micronized titanium dioxide, micronized zinc oxide, iron oxide, silk mica, and hydrated silica.

Micronized titanium dioxide, a common ingredient in sun block products, is particularly suited to protect skin from damaging sunlight. This white mineral’s crystalline structure naturally reflects and defuses the sun’s harmful rays. Micronized zinc oxide works in combination with the micronized titanium dioxide to reflect the sunlight’s dangerous UVA and UVB rays.

Did you know that unlike traditional cosmetics, mineral foundations can provide sheer to full coverage? A light, sheer finish can be accomplished by moving the applicator brush in small circles on the face. Mineral makeup can also provide a more opaque texture if applied in layers with a damp sponge, much like you would apply liquid foundation. Fortunately, the consistency of mineral makeup gives coverage without the thick, unnatural, pore-clogging consequences of traditional liquid foundation.
With all these unfolding before you, will you really be willing to drop your expensive and popular brand and grab a hold of your very first mineral make up a.k.a. MMU?
