Part of your research will be to look for natural ingredients in the foundation makeup. Finding the best foundation makeup all begins with knowing what is inside the makeup and what it does.
Here are some examples:
For this example, here is your answer ... zinc oxide is a natural and harmless ingredient with active properties that is an effective treatment for acne and eczema.
This is a useful feature because this ingredient is already part of the plan to achieve your best foundation makeup.
The best foundation makeup, in its most basic formulation, consists of 4 natural ingredients :
The above is all you need to have a wonderful, healthy and natural skin in its simplest form.
However, from this point onwards, mainstream makeup manufacturers can become very scientific and ruthless in their quest to achieve the best foundation makeup and these are some of the criteria used to achieve their objectives :
** The counter argument of using petrochemical based compounds in makeup is that the quantities are so small that it will have no effect on the skin or body - this is mostly true if you use it once.
However, let's say you use it for 20 years - 20 years x 365 days = 7 300 approximate usages.
Whatever insignificant amount of toxins the critics say is in the makeup, multiply it by 7300 and you will have an idea of what kind of toxin levels that your body will have to deal with over a period of time.
*** Liquid makeup, especially water-based makeup, is susceptible to bacteria. Bacteria growth is very effective in moist environments.
Within a short period of time, your skin can easily absorb up to 60% of what you put on it (a quick example is wrinkly skin after being in the water).
Unfortunately, your body does not expel toxins at the same rate of skin absorption which means that there will be a natural progression of toxin build-up from continued usage.
A simple rule to remember - if you cannot put it in your mouth, it is certainly not good for your skin.
Here is an interesting example :
Of course not.
But consider this, let us assume that you are pregnant and you add a makeup to your skin that contains petrochemical additives as a preservative - you guessed it - you would be sending this additive directly to your baby's bloodstream.
