As we grow older and begin to lose our natural coloring, our skin tone turns dull and our skin loses its natural elasticity and stretches, we feel the need for some extra help which will give us a semblance of our youthful looks. How did so many changes come about in our faces suddenly? How come we didn’t find these changes when we look at ourselves in the mirror every day?
That’s when we need to conceal all our facial flaws with makeup. But this Mineral makeup should really be different as it should address all the problems we’ve just discovered about ourselves. Aging skin can receive the necessary kind of help in the shape of mineral makeup, which has been used for centuries by the Egyptians and other civilizations.
How mineral makeup helps aging skin: When women begin to age, their skin undergoes several kinds of changes. For one, the skin begins to lose its natural elasticity and collagen, the proteins inside the skin that works on enhancing and tightening the skin are no longer produced as much as in one’s youth.
As a result, the skin loses its firmness and begins to sag. The skin also cannot recover as well as before in terms of skin damage and scarring. However, what the skin cannot do externally, we can do internally: so, women can improve the condition of their skin by eating a diet rich in Vitamins A, C and E and so reverse the obvious signs of aging.
It is natural makeup which is devoid of any chemicals, or talc, preservatives and dyes, thereby negating the chance of contracting any skin irritation.
It also helps reverse the signs of aging.
It helps conceal all your fine lines, scars and age marks by providing lighter coverage and an even skin tone.
It doesn’t damage the skin surface or cause any irritation or cause any dryness or oiliness.

Also known as Retinol, Vitamin A is a natural antioxidant and, in this capacity, helps increase the skin cells’ production which, in turn, helps repair the skin cells damaged by UV rays. It also gives you a smoother and even-toned complexion without fine lines or wrinkles.
