We all want to make healthy choices and Mineral Makeup is an easy one to make! Mineral Cosmetics offer an exceptionally light, long wearing product that applies flawlessly without smearing or creasing, blends easily, and provides a beautiful radiance. However the benefits go far beyond these!
Mineral Makeup is suitable for even the most sensitive skin as it has anti-inflammatory properties which provide comfort and it also protects and replenishes damaged skin. Wearing these cosmetics will provide you with additional protection from UV rays, wind, and free radical damage. Unlike conventional cosmetics which quickly breed bacteria and must be disposed of periodically for safety reasons, Mineral Makeup does not allow for the germination of bacteria. This means you can safely use your cosmetics for a much longer time. It will not clog your pores, and therefore is an excellent choice for acne sufferers. It is chemical free and hypo-allergenic. An added benefit is that it reduces the symptoms of aging which means your makeup becomes a part of your anti-aging skincare regime.
Mineral Makeup is the preferred choice of dermatologists and plastic surgeons. It is so safe for your skin it can safely be used after procedures such as laser surgery, microdermabrasion and chemical peels.
Not All Mineral Makeup is Created Equally
Many drugstore, department store and other retail mineral makeups contain ingredients that are cause for concern such as Parabens, Talc, Boron Nitride and synthetic fillers. Even high end retail mineral makeups often contain these ingredients so it is wise to know what you are investing in. Parabens are highly controversial due to their ability to mimic estrogen (which influences breast cancer) and the fact that Paraben has been found in breast cancer tumours. Paraben is also considered a factor in the increasingly early puberty rate among girls. Talc has been linked to respiratory cancers and Boron Nitride has been shown to create liver and kidney disruptions with prolonged exposure.
At Paramount DaySpa Salon & Boutique we proudly offer SST Cosmetics. SST was created by Saskatoon business woman Sharon Sharpe-Titus. The line contains NO Talc, Boron Nitride or Gluten and is never tested on animals. The line is Paraben Free. Rather than preserving their products with Parabens they use high levels of anti-oxidants which have tremendous benefit to the skin.
The products are manufactured in Italy, and the formulations contain the highest quality, finely milled minerals from around the globe. Each formula contains only minerals and (rather than synthetic fillers) ingredients that benefit the skin. These additional ingredients are what take the minerals from powder to their final form (gel, cream etc.) and create a unique cosmetic that has a luxurious feel and is rich in nourishment and protection for the skin.
SST offers a wide range of professional quality products in an array of fashionable and flattering colours for any age or occasion, including three types of foundation, a CC cream, tinted primer and a unique skin perfecting balm.
SST Cosmetics are truly the very best in Mineral Makeup. Whether you want to protect and care for your beautiful skin, or heal and minimize your problem skin, SST is the cosmetic of choice!
