You’ve probably heard about mineral powder and the fact that it’s healthier and safer for the skin. So, it’s not surprising that the popularity of mineral makeup is surging. If you’ve not tried this revolutionary makeup yet, get set to upgrade your makeup bag with a luxury mineral powder.
What is Mineral Powder?
It’s no revelation that mineral powder is made of minerals! But what does that mean? Well, minerals are non-organic, crystalline substances formed in the earth’s crust. These can include ingredients like zinc oxide, titanium dioxide, mica, boron nitride, iron oxide and kaolin, all of which can be found in mineral makeup.
A key benefit is that mineral powder is an extremely light, loose powder that blends easily into the skin for a flawless matte finish. As well as having great staying power, pure mineral powders are free from anything toxic like chemicals, fragrances and irritants, making it an extremely ‘clean’ beauty product.
How Do I Use Mineral Powder?
Mineral powder is a great investment because it can be used in many ways. Let’s look at why Jane Iredale Powder-Me SPF® 30 Dry Sunscreen Mineral Powder could be one of the most versatile products in your bathroom AND why it’s been included in Elle Magazine’s top 12 best powder SPFs for 2022.
1. Setting Your Makeup
Minerals like bonding with the surface of your skin, so it’s important to have freshly cleansed and moisturised skin. Allow your moisturiser to be fully absorbed before you apply your base makeup.
For medium to full coverage, you could use a mineral foundation like Jane Iredale Pure Pressed® Base Mineral Foundation. This exceptional multi-tasking product combines foundation, concealer and sunscreen, providing a beautiful, semi-matte finish.
Alternatively, if you prefer a foundation that provides sheer to medium coverage, go for Amazing Base® Loose Mineral Powder. A little brush of these micronized minerals goes a long way, providing you with a sheer to medium coverage and a gorgeous flawless finish. It’s impressive longwear staying power is even water resistant for up to 40 minutes.
Once you’ve applied your mineral foundation and any additional products like bronzer, blusher and eyeshadow, set it all in place with your Jane Iredale Powder-Me SPF® 30 Dry Sunscreen Mineral Powder. Boron Nitride diffuses light and creates a soft texture, blurring imperfections and brightening the skin. With an additional SPF30, it’s the perfect final product to set and protect your face.
2. Daily SPF
Yes, you did just hear right. Sunscreen really does come in the form of a mineral powder and Jane Iredale Powder-Me SPF® 30 Dry Sunscreen Mineral Powder is so effective that The Skin Cancer Foundation recommends using it daily.
Research has shown that UV rays can penetrate through glass, so even when you’re inside your house, sitting by a window or driving a car, they can damage the skin, causing skin cancer and premature ageing.
This powder sunscreen is at the forefront of scientific innovation. Jane Iredale Powder-Me SPF® 30 Dry Sunscreen Mineral Powder is a highly water resistant, weightless, dry sunscreen for the face, scalp, and body. It's without chemical sunscreen actives and can be applied either over makeup or as a foundation..
Offering broad spectrum protection, titanium dioxide defends against the harmful UVA and UVB rays which cause fine lines, wrinkles, sunspots, and other signs of premature ageing. IT can also be used on sunburn to calm and soothe red, inflamed skin.
We especially love using this powder SPF on the scalp and hairline to prevent burning in a range of situations. From daily activities to during sport. It’s so much better than having to use liquid sunscreen which makes your hair greasy!
3. Touch Ups
Available in 4 shades, Jane Iredale Powder-Me SPF® 30 Dry Sunscreen Mineral Powder has a cleverly designed super soft reusable and refillable brush that makes it so easy and convenient for on-the-go reapplication too. You can be sure of an even coverage without streaks, SPF 30 broad spectrum protection throughout the day and unnecessary wastage.
Another great benefit is that you can use this on your décolletage too, for evening out the skin tone and protecting it from painful sunburn. Make the switch to Mineral Powder this summer with Jane Iredale, and give your skin the care it deserves.
