Have you considered ditching your makeup temporarily or even permanently? There maybe a number of reasons why you want to give your skin a break from wearing makeup constantly, it may be for health reasons or simply because you want to save money and be confident being the real you all the time. Real beauty comes from within! No matter what your reasons are for ditching makeup you will notice a number of changes when you stop wearing it and here’s some below…
Your skin will thank you
Most people aren’t aware that their makeup is toxic to the skin. Covering up blemishes and imperfections on your skin leads to harmful substances blocking up your pores and causing breakouts and blemishes. Once you stop wearing makeup, your skin will thank you for it and begin to repair and get rid of all these harmful, toxic products. If you want the perfect blemish-free and glowing skin, covering it up with layers of foundation and makeup won’t help you with that.
Your pores will shrink
Foundation, blusher and highlighter might look nice, but underneath the surface, these microscopic makeup particles gather in our pores every time we apply it. Along with all the air pollutants our skin is exposed to every day, dirt builds up, causing pores to become clogged and enlarged over time. Going makeup free will minimize build-up inside the pores, and reduce sagging and wrinkle formation in the skin. It will also help delay the aging process.
You will have heaps more free time
Here’s a scary thought for you, on average women in the US apply 17 beauty products before even leaving the house and spend around an hour to get their makeup on and look perfected. Other studied have indicated that women around the world waste 474 days of their lives applying makeup. Can you imagine what you would do with all that spare time? Start a new hobby? Earn more money? The world is your oyster!
Love your flaws and grow in confidence
Your flaws and imperfections are what make you, you! The less you wear makeup the less you will need it. You will soon realize that your flaws and quirks aren’t ugly. They are different and add to your natural beauty. Your confidence will rise, as you realize people treat you no differently without makeup as to with it. Your complexion will also improve over time as your skin will be able to breath.
Ditching your makeup addiction permanently or temporarily can have positive effects on the rest of your body, as well as your mind. Makeup is ultimately a toxin and an additive that your skin really doesn’t want. Give it the break it deserves and allow your skin to recover by going makeup free. Be proud to show off the real you with all your imperfections and quirks and you will start to love yourself more.
