As the beauty industry continues to evolve, people are becoming more conscious about what they put on their skin. Mineral-based makeup is made from natural minerals, like titanium dioxide and zinc oxide, that are finely ground and blended with other ingredients to create a smooth powder.

At Innovative MedSpa, we believe that both makeup and skincare products have the potential to impact the health and appearance of your skin. We pride ourselves on providing top-of-the-line skincare products to promote healthy skin, which is why we were quick to add Colorescience to our list of available products! You wouldn’t put dirt on freshly cleaned floors, don’t do it to your skin!

The benefits of mineral-based makeup include:

Sun Protection 

First and foremost, one of the greatest benefits of mineral-based makeup, such as Colorescience, is that it provides a higher level of sun protection than traditional makeup products. Mineral-based makeup contains natural minerals, such as titanium dioxide and zinc oxide. These ingredients are natural sunscreens that provide broad-spectrum protection against the sun’s harmful rays. These minerals work by reflecting the sun’s rays away from the skin, preventing them from penetrating the skin and causing damage. 

Lightweight and Breathable 

Mineral-based makeup is known for its lightweight and breathable formula, making it non-comedogenic. Unlike traditional makeup products, mineral-based makeup does not clog pores or feel heavy on the skin. This makes it ideal for those with oily or acne-prone skin, as it allows the skin to breathe and prevents breakouts. Additionally, mineral-based makeup provides a natural, sheer coverage that enhances your skin’s natural beauty without looking cakey or heavy. With Colorescience’s Natural Mineral Foundation SPF 20, you can forget you’re even wearing makeup!  

Great for Sensitive Skin 

Traditional makeup products often contain synthetic chemicals, fragrances, and preservatives that can be very irritating to sensitive skin. Mineral-based makeup, on the other hand, is made from natural minerals that are gentler on the skin and less likely to cause breakouts, or allergic reactions. Additionally, mineral-based makeup is often free from parabens, phthalates, and other harmful ingredients commonly found in traditional makeup products. One thing we absolutely love about Colorescience is the fact that all of their products are 100% free from all of the above ingredients, including talc, dyes, mineral-oils, and alcohols that can be very drying to the skin. 


Another benefit of mineral-based makeup is its long-lasting formula. Mineral-based makeup adheres to the skin better than traditional makeup products, providing all-day coverage without the need for touch-ups. This is because the minerals in mineral-based makeup are finely milled and blend seamlessly with the skin’s natural oils, creating a smooth and flawless finish. For those with oily skin types – mineral-based makeup is your best friend! 

Ultimately, mineral-based makeup offers numerous benefits that traditional makeup products simply cannot match. Its ingredients, lightweight and breathable formula, long-lasting coverage, and sun protection make it an excellent choice for anyone looking to enhance their natural beauty, while protecting their skin. If you’re looking for a makeup product that is gentle on the skin and provides a flawless finish, consider switching to mineral-based makeup. Your skin will thank you for it!
