Makeup application is a normal part of many women’s daily routine. It beautifies and enhances self-confidence. Unfortunately, makeup can also have a detrimental effect on your skin and increase the potential for developing a variety of unanticipated difficulties. Never wear cosmetics that have passed their best-by labeling.
Finding the right makeup for your skin type can seem like an impossible quest, particularly if you have combination skin. Cosmetics that aren’t formulated for the type of skin you have can make skin oilier, which results in more breakouts. Conversely, makeup can also dry out your skin making it appear flaky and unhealthy.
Sun damage is the No. 1 danger to skin, resulting in premature aging and age spots if your makeup doesn’t contain sunscreen. Cosmetics can also work to break down the elastin in skin and contribute to the formation of fine lines and wrinkles.
The frequent use of makeup leads to clogged pores and makes you more prone to developing acne, blackheads and areas of bumpy skin. You can experience those symptoms even with “all-natural” makeup options. Cosmetics don’t allow the skin to breathe. Always thoroughly remove makeup as soon as you can and never leave makeup on overnight.
Cosmetic companies have developed a roster of long-lasting makeup options. While they sound like a great idea, it’s important to know that the long-lasting varieties often contain ingredients that deprive lips and skin of oxygen to achieve extra wear time. Using those types of cosmetics can result in darkening of the skin and lips.
Allergies and Infections
If you have allergies – and even if you don’t – your choice of cosmetics can cause an allergic reaction. It can be especially difficult to find appropriate makeup if you have sensitive skin. Your eyes and the surrounding area may be especially sensitive. Scratching and rubbing in response to an allergic reaction has the potential to set up a situation in which an infection can easily develop.
