Since ancient times, using cosmetics for beauty purposes has been an indispensable part of life for both men and women. There are many chemicals in certain cosmetics, which, if used long-term, can be incredibly harmful to the skin. As people look for ways to live more eco-friendly and sustainable lives and use fewer chemicals and harmful substances, more and more people are turning to cosmetic alternatives. 


One increasingly popular type of makeup is mineral makeup, which proponents claim is one of the most effective and gentle cosmetic options available on the market. They argue that mineral cosmetics are derived from a completely natural mineral, with no added fragrances, preservatives, or chemicals so they are very benign to the skin, and help to protect your skin from ultraviolet rays and environmental pollutants. These reported benefits of mineral makeup have grabbed the attention of everyone interested in the cosmetic industry.


This article is a guide to the many benefits of using mineral makeup.

1. Pure and Natural

One of the major benefits of mineral makeup compared to chemical-based makeup is that it is made purely from naturally occurring minerals. The experts at explain that because there are no artificial ingredients, mineral makeup does not cause any skin irritation and is good for overall health. Furthermore, mineral makeup is widely considered to be the number one cosmetic choice for women with sensitive skin or problems like acne because it contains antiseptic and anti-inflammatory substances. 


If you have a problem with acne or sensitive skin, but your work requires you to put on daily makeup, traditional chemical-based cosmetics will not allow your skin to breathe and the skin on your face will be constantly irritated. Mineral makeup is gentle on the skin and so if you do have to wear makeup every day, you will have significantly fewer flare-ups and irritation if you use mineral makeup rather than chemical cosmetics.

2. Nude Makeup Look


If you use traditional makeup, your face will look thicker and less natural because traditional makeup is built up in layers. Mineral makeup products are far thinner when applied but still offer perfect coverage so you will still retain your natural look whilst still gaining all the aesthetic benefits of the makeup. These days, a more natural look is the makeup style that is in trend and so mineral makeup will have you looking great without appearing as you have caked on the makeup.

3. Extra Durable

Mineral makeup is widely regarded to be one of the most durable types of cosmetics available. Mineral makeup is alkaline and so it can absorb fat and oil far better than traditional chemical-based makeup. This makes mineral makeup good for women with oily skin because it means that their makeup won’t be affected by the oil. When people with overly oily skin wear makeup, they have to do frequent touch-ups because the oil ruins their look. Mineral makeup is great for anyone with oily skin, especially women who have long active days.

4. Effective Nourishing

Mineral makeup is fantastic for nourishing your skin with many natural compounds and pure ingredients. Zinc oxide plays an important role in protecting the skin from free radicals that cause oxidation. Potassium helps the skin breathe more easily. Sodium helps regulate water balance in cells, which stops your skin from drying out. Calcium is necessary for the rapid absorption of substances into skin cells. The nourishing effects of mineral makeup are ideal for people with all types of skin and help to balance any issues with oil, acne, dry skin, or eczema.

5. Cheap and Long-Lasting

Due to the simple ingredients, composition, and manufacturing process, mineral makeup is cheaper than traditional makeup, which, along with the benefits described above, is another big draw for women looking to make a change in their cosmetic habits. A quality mineral makeup foundation will only cost between $10 and $22 and won’t expire for at least six to eight months. 


Another advantage of some mineral makeup over traditional cosmetics is that most powdered mineral makeup has no shelf life at all because it is made from metal oxides, which are virtually non-corrodible. This means that you can keep mineral makeup for significantly longer than regular cosmetics as long as you store it in good condition. This means don’t keep it in direct sunlight or anywhere that is too humid or hot.


Currently, the ranges of mineral makeup available include concealer, foundation, blush, eye shadow, and lipstick, in a range of color tones and which are suitable for every skin type. If you are looking for a new type of cosmetic or you need something a little gentler to your skin, make the change to mineral makeup and see if you can feel the benefits.
