4 ways to incorporate minerals into your life
If you like to keep your finger on the pulse when it comes to trends and technologies in the beauty world, then you’ll no doubt have come across the concept of mineral beauty products. But how much do you actually know about what minerals can do for your skin, hair and body?
Our bodies are essentially made up of minerals, and without them in our system nothing would function. Luckily though, the natural workings of your body partnered with a healthy diet can automatically help to replenish any internal mineral loss – your skin and hair, however, need a little extra assistance.
Using beauty products enriched with minerals (be it from the earth or from the sea) will not only help to replace depleted minerals in your skin and hair, but will also assist in strengthening your external barrier function and protecting from environmental aggressors. On top of that, minerals have pretty strong antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and hydration properties, and can aid in detoxification, too.
Sounds pretty good, right? Right. That being agreed, here are a few ways you can incorporate more minerals into your beauty routine:
MINERALS IN YOUR MAKE-UP
Mineral make-up is the most natural form of make-up you can put on your skin so opting for a mineral base is always a good idea. Revlon Nearly Naked Mineral Powder provides lightweight, yet buildable coverage that adapts to your individual skin tone, helping to minimise imperfections and give you flawless, yet natural looking and feeling complexion. It also allows your skin to breathe and is non-comedogenic (meaning it won’t block your pores), and helps to deliver essential minerals, nutrients and vitamins to your skin leaving you with a glowing, fresh complexion.
MINERALS IN YOUR SKIN CARE
Sea minerals like algae, sea kelp, magnesium, potassium and sodium are known for their great rejuvenation, and healing abilities. Look for them in your skin care products to help stimulate collagen and elastin production, renew damaged cells, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, as well as balance, revitalise, and moisturise your skin.
MINERALS IN YOUR HAIR CARE
The hydration and antioxidant benefits of minerals can work wonders on hair that’s not looking its best. A shampoo and conditioner duo that’s rich in minerals will help to nourish your strands from within, eliminating dullness and dehydration and restoring shine and vitality, too.
MINERALS IN YOUR BODY PRODUCTS
Look for a body scrub that’s packed with Dead Sea salts as it will help gently slough away dead skin cells while simultaneously providing your skin with the many benefits of the Dead Sea minerals (think: hydration, increased radiance, reduction of eczema and psoriasis, and antioxidant protection.) Soaking your body in mineral-rich salts, like Epsom or Dead Sea salts, is also a great natural way to soothe tired or sore muscles, reduce inflammation and remove toxins from your body.
