There are so many Mineral Makeup on the market today. This will be very confusing for people who don't have much knowledge in choosing the right Mineral Makeup for their Oily Skin.
Don't be pursuaded by those articles that you will come across on the internet. Choosing the right Mineral Makeup for Oily skin is very simple.
1. Find Mineral that contain the ingredients called Silica.
2. Avoid Mineral Makeup that contain Sericite
Why? Silica is a Mineral Makeup Ingredients which is highly absorbant and used for oil control. It reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, making you look more natural. Try to contact the Mineral Makeup Manufacturer and find out how many amount of Silica on their products. If you have an Oily Skin, you may need about 7% to 15% of Silica on your Mineral Makeup.
Sericite on the otherhand, also helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. However, it will give you a medium shine which is not appropriate for women with Oily Skin. Your Oily Skin will give you the natural shine after few hours of wearing your Mineral Makeup, so you don't need ingredients for extra shine. Sericite will make your face look gray unless their Sericite is coated with wax.
3. You also need to avoid Mineral Makeup with Botanical or Fruit Extracts since these ingredients are natural moisturizer. Always remember that when you have an Oily Skin, your skin will produce its own natural moist while wearing your Mineral Makeup. Wearing Mineral Makeup with any kind of Moisturizer will make your skin oilier. The more your skin gets oily, the more chances of clogging your pores. It may not be the Mineral Makeup that will cause the blackheads and whiteheads, but when your skin has too much oil, it can easily attract the dirt from your environment that will cause blackheads and whiteheads and eventually pimples.
