Who doesn't love makeup? If there is one wish every makeup-lover wants fulfilled, it's to wear makeup without worrying about her skin! Some of us are in professions where wearing makeup everyday is a necessity. And as for the rest of us, let's just admit it, makeup makes us happy!
A common concern that we've come across however is, does wearing makeup regularly cause acne?
Today we answer this much-asked question - along with 3 other questions related to everyday makeup. So without further delay, let’s start.
Wearing makeup everyday can aggravate acne in some cases. There could be two chief causes for this:
But remember: it’s not just makeup that causes acne. There are a lot of other factors like diet, weather conditions, exposure to new products, hormonal reasons etc. If you aren't sure if your makeup is causing the acne, go bare or without make-up for a few days. You will find out if makeup is the culprit!
YES! While sleeping with makeup once in a while will not cause serious damage, doing so over a prolonged period of time is almost certain to cause harm. Make-up clogs your pores. Besides, stale makeup is also a breeding ground for bacteria. Both the above are leading causes of acne. The simplest (and most rewarding) skin care routine is to develop the habit of cleansing your face before you sleep - and cleanse well! Read more on how to get a perfect cleanse here.
