Consisting purely of minerals and pigments found in nature, mineral makeup is all-natural and free of ingredients that can harm the skin. Both those are only a couple of the reasons it may be time for you to make the switch to mineral makeup.
Perfect for oil or acne-prone skin, mineral makeup is noncomedogenic and does not encourage bacteria growth, meaning it won’t clog pores or cause breakouts.
Mineral makeup foundations and powders are considered physical sunscreens (which is recommended for acne-prone skin) because they utilize physical blockers like titanium dioxide to reflect the sun’s ultraviolet rays.
Natural ingredients, like mica, make mineral makeup a good choice for sensitive, easily irritated skin types; and it’s even safe to use a couple weeks after noninvasive treatments like chemical peels and laser resurfacing.
Mineral makeup is often touted as a miracle worker, but not all mineral makeup is created equal. To find true, high-quality mineral makeup, look for brands that incorporate zinc oxide and titanium dioxide, and don’t use fillers such as fragrances, colors, binders, preservatives and other chemicals.

Some of the most common hair woes, like excessive oiliness or dryness, can be alleviated with a combination of the right foods and, of course, the right hair products. Since hair grows from a skin follicle, it’s inevitable that oil is produced. But just how much sebum ends up on your scalp and trickles down the strand is due to genetics, the condition of your scalp, and your intake of certain foods. While hormones play a part, hot and spicy foods can cause your body temperature to rise internally, which gets released through pores in the scalp. Another cause for oily hair is excess consumption of sugar and fat.Since oily hair is directly related to an oily scalp, it’s best to cut out any foods that encourage the overproduction of oil. You may want to try incorporating more raw foods and healthy oils into your diet to counteract the effects of saturated oils. Look to include foods like complex carbs, olive oil, sushi, fresh fruits and vegetables.Dry hair, on the other hand, can be due in part to a lack of vitamin A, which is essential to the induction of the genes that control the process called keratinization. If you’re not getting enough vitamin A or the right proportions of it, your hair can become dry.Load up on foods rich in essential fatty acids and healthy fats. Foods that are high in omega-3 and -6 fatty acids, like linoleic acid, will ensure proper hydration to the hair. Fish like tuna, salmon and trout, as well as flaxseed and walnuts, are great choices. Stay away from processed foods, and make sure you drink one or two liters of water each day to keep hair supple.Keep in mind, any dietary changes will only affect new hair growth—chances are you won’t see a noticeable difference for at least three to six months.
