SKIN care : Allow your skin to naturally glow

I have heard stories of women being addicted to makeup and I just thought it is all exaggerated. I got the shock of my life when I read about a lady who had never been seen without makeup, not even in her bed at night!

I have heard stories of women being addicted to makeup and I just thought it is all exaggerated. I got the shock of my life when I read about a lady who had never been seen without makeup, not even in her bed at night!

What we don’t realize is the damage this heavy makeup causes to our skin.

Not to mention it’s a quicker route to aging!
What’s worse is using so many different products at the same time. Isn’t that just confusing the skin? you don’t need a degree to know that some of these cosmetics we use are bad news.

If you have an already sensitive skin, the use of very strong cosmetics causes skin irritation.  If you have to wear strong makeup at least make it a point to wash it off thoroughly when you get home.

There are cleansers that can help you get rid of hidden makeup. This will help your skin pores to breathe and get unclogged. Staying with makeup all day is like remaining covered with a blanket and never taking it off.

If you don’t want your partner to see what you look like without it I think you should apply one of those face-masks that help cleanse your skin while you sleep. Trust me, he won’t see a thing.

And that way, you have your face covered up and your skin being rejuvenated at the same time. Cool huh? Some masks are not meant to be left on too long, so be careful what you buy.

So far the best thing that will allow anyone to achieve a good healthy skin by far is drinking water. Drinking lots of water has proved to be the best remedy for bad skin.

It’s the safest healthiest thing for your skin. I know there are some skin conditions that need more than just water; like acne or eczema. Sufferers of these conditions need to visit a skin specialist for treatment.

Eat healthily—eat fruits and vegetables even if you can’t stand them. Try to wear as little makeup as you can. A little foundation and lip balm will do. Leave the copper girl for a photo shoot!

Some international companies like L’Oreal and Estee Lauder have natural makeup. You will be wearing makeup but still looking as natural as a fresh rose. Latin sensation Shakira uses that kind of makeup and it’s no wonder she’s always easy on the eyes!
