Negatively Affecting Your Skin

Some common questions that people ask regarding makeup are, “Is makeup affecting my skin?” “Is makeup clogging my pores?” “How should I be taking it off at night?” “Is it okay to wear makeup every day?” “Should I be utilizing a specific makeup for my skin type?” The reality is, that when makeup is being worn for about 12-15 hours a day, it’s without a doubt negatively affecting your skin more than you might anticipate. This is why it’s so vital to know how the choices you make with makeup are interfering with your skin.

In this post, we will look at common errors people make for choosing, wearing and removing makeup, including some ways to guarantee that your skin remains in the best conceivable health with fewer lines, wrinkles, acne, and clogged pores.

You Shouldn’t Leave Your Makeup On When Going To Sleep

It’s vital to understand that your skin is very dirty at night due to the circumstances that:

  • sebum oil discharges through your pores
  • Germs from touching your face repeatedly with your hands and dirt underneath your fingernails (without even noticing it)
  • makeup from powders, primers, blushes and liquid foundations will negatively affect your skin.

Letting your skin sit in dirt, oil, and makeup all day and night can mean clogged pores, breakouts, and add to a not so good-looking skin tone. It’s so significant to purify your skin consistently on a nightly basis and stick to a nighttime skin care regime for your specific skin type.

Don’t Rely On Cleansing Wipes to Remove Your Makeup.

Notwithstanding their suitability, it is not recommended to use cleansing wipes to remove face makeup. This is due to the fact that they don’t accurately clean the skin as you expect them to. In its place, they just move dirt, bacteria, oil, and makeup across your face. A cleanser lacking the addition of any water will break down and liquify the dirt in the oily part of the soap molecule itself and remove it onto the cleanser wipe. Nevertheless, it’s the rinsing method from the water that eliminates it and cleanses the skin. Fundamentally, using a wipe is like administering cleanser to your face with soap and then not cleaning it off with water.

Stop Thinking that Makeup is Harmful For Your Face and That You Must Let It Breathe.

One thing needs to be set straight, the skin doesn’t contain a respiratory system so this idea of the skin needing to “breath” is actually not true. The reality is that face makeup that is in the formula of powder or liquid foundation, provides extra shielding from the sun, even if it doesn’t include or show an SPF number. Since shielding your skin from UV light during the day is a significant precedence, makeup can actually be quite advantageous. Essentially, you’ll want to pick the right kind of makeup for your particular skin type to ensure it’s the best kind for your skin.

  • Acetylated Lanolin
  • Butyl Stearate
  • Coal Tar
  • Cocoa Butter
  • Coconut Oil
  • D & C Red Dyes
  • Decyl Oleate
  • Grapeseed Oil
  • Isopropyl Isostearate
  • Isopropyl Linoleate
  • Isopropyl Myristate
  • Isopropyl Neopentanoate

  • Isostearic Acid
  • Lanolic Acid
  • Linseed Oil
  • Myristyl Myristate
  • Oleic Acid
  • Oleyl Alcohol
  • Soybean Oil
  • Squalene

Avoid Using Products That Will Cause Clogged Bumps.

If you notice a modification in your skin and you’re utilizing primer, liquid foundations, cream blushes and cream highlighters, then one or the mixture of all of these might be the issue. The desire with wanting to have glowing, bright, light-reflective and flawless-looking skin is common, but a lot of the products used to attain this look will include many oils and emollients that probably won’t be well-matched with your skin. In addition, the fact that it’s remaining on your face for 12-15 hours a day you’re guaranteed to run into concerns. The best advice is to curb their use and try to determine which makeup is the cause. There is no one ideal primer or liquid foundation makeup that will work for each and every skin type, so you just have to test it. Meaning that you will have to do a bit of trial and error.
