Mascara, lipstick, blush, foundation and eyeliner are beauty products that are a necessity for many women around the world. However, sometimes makeup can be harmful to your skin’s health. Unhealthy makeup habits can cause acne, aging, and oiliness or dryness. Here’s more about the negative effects of daily makeup use.
Leaving makeup on your skin overnight can accentuate wrinkles. Sun damage can also cause aging (and many people don’t wear sunscreen when they are wearing makeup). Age spots and wrinkles can appear as a result of not properly protecting your skin.
Dry or Oily Skin
Certain makeup products can make your skin drier or more oily than it usually is. Additionally, when people with naturally dry skin try to put makeup on top of their skin, the makeup can make their skin even drier. You can tell if you have dry skin by symptoms such as flaky or scaly skin. A shiny face is a sign of oily skin.
So if you wear makeup every day—like many women—how can you protect your skin? We’ve compiled some makeup habits to help keep your skin as healthy as possible. If you develop these habits, your skin will thank you.
