Makeup is a girls war paint. It is something that has the potential to be a girls best friend or a girls worst enemy.
I like going makeup free most days during the working week. I only ever put makeup on when I am going out (shopping, for drinks or to see friends). Even then I don’t wear a lot of makeup.
I like going makeup free because my skin feels nicer. I find that when I wear makeup my skin starts feeling oily (especially when I wear foundation).
My skin likes being able to breath. If it can’t, I pay the price for it. That is why it is so important to wash your face using a reliable cleaner that suits your skin type.
Reasons why you should go makeup free (some days of the week):
1) Your skin feels so much cleaner.
I don’t feel the urge to go and wash my face every 20 minutes or so.
2) Your skin is given some time to breath.
This helps your pores – they don’t get all blocked.
3) There is less of a risk of getting a bad breakout.
I hate breakouts, I haven’t had any for the last few years though, for which I am eternally grateful. Another way to prevent breakouts is to cleanse daily and use a good toner to even out your skin tone.
4) You skin not only feels clean it looks clean.
I love clean looking skin. It looks healthy and young.
I’m not saying ‘don’t wear make up ever, ever, ever’. All I’m saying is take care of how much makeup you use. I am a makeup lover myself, but like I said further up, I only reserve makeup for going out.
