Wearing makeup can make you feel more beautiful and it can boost your self-confidence. Makeup highlights your natural beauty, conceals flaws and can turn your look from bland to glam within seconds. But wearing too much makeup can actually be damaging to your skin. If you decide to skip out on makeup for a few days, you will immediately notice a change in your skin. When you allow your skin to breathe without covering it with harmful makeup products that clog your pores, you allow your natural beauty to shine, and you give your skin the chance to naturally replenish itself. If you want to find out what really happens once you stop wearing makeup, keep reading.
Most makeup products are made using harmful toxins that wreck havoc on our skin. Combine those products with dirty makeup brushes, and you have a recipe for disaster. When you skip out on wearing makeup, you’re no longer turning your skin into a breeding ground for acne-causing bacteria. Makeup products placed on top of an acne breakout could cause the formation of new pimples, skin irritation and inflammation. When you stop wearing makeup, you’ll see a noticeable reduction in breakouts.
There are many companies that are dedicated to creating all-natural makeup products that are free of harmful toxins. But many of the most popular brands are full of parabens and sulfates that are severely damaging to the skin. These ingredients can cause skin allergies and a skin irritation called dermatitis that leaves your face looking patchy and red. When you decide to stop wearing makeup, you’ll never have to worry about a skin allergy because going makeup free will solve all of your problems.
As much as you try to keep your pores clean and unclogged, heavy foundation and powder accumulate inside each pore every time you put on makeup. The products mix with the natural oils in your skin and with dead skin cells to create a plug that causes blackheads and whiteheads. When you stop wearing makeup, you can focus more on keeping your skin nice and clean, and your pores will no longer be clogged from makeup products.
Some beauty lovers use foundation and concealer to hide imperfections, beauty marks, scars, birthmarks and freckles. When you decide to stop wearing makeup, you’ll be forced to step out into the real world showing your natural beauty and all of your perfect imperfections. You’ll learn how to appreciate those imperfections on your skin because they make you who you really are.
One of the best parts about skipping makeup is the time-saving element. Can you imagine just how much time you would save every morning if you left the house without putting on any makeup? Most people spend at least 20-30 minutes everyday perfecting their makeup look. If they decided to go makeup-free, they could devote that extra time to other things, like catching up on sleep, fixing a hearty breakfast, or leaving early to beat the traffic.
