Some women are frightened of going out in public without “their face on”. The idea of being seen outside the home without a full face of makeup makes them tremble. Some women don´t even let their partners see them without makeup! The thing is though, going makeup free is a really positive step. If you´re too attached to your makeup bag, please read these reasons to go makeup free.
1. IT SAVES MONEY
The first reason to go makeup free is that it saves you a lot of money! So many women have a makeup stash full of products that they never use. These products dry up or go off (yes makeup has an expiration date), and eventually, when you can be bothered to have a cull, they get tossed away. It is best to stick to a few key products that you will use, especially if you are going to spend more time going makeup free.
2. IT GIVES YOUR SKIN a BREAK
Your skin is an organ and needs to breathe. By leaving off the makeup, you are giving your skin that freedom it needs from product. Let it have a rest from being covered in gunk, and it will thank you. Of course, the one product you shouldn´t miss out on is sunscreen – always use that.
3. IT SHOWS YOUR NATURAL BEAUTY
One of the reasons many women choose to wear makeup is they think they aren’t attractive and only look good with a full face of makeup. There is nothing wrong in wearing makeup – it’s totally a personal choice but it´s also good to enjoy your natural looks. The confidence to go au-naturel is very empowering. Decide your best features and make the most of them. Remember a nice smile will make you look better than makeup can!
4. IT FREES up TIME
Some might have a makeup routine down pat in a few minutes but in reality, for the full-blown face, it takes time. And then, how much time sdo you spend touching it up during the day? Not to mention how long it takes to remove it before bedtime. Go makeup free for a few days and see how much time you save!
5. IT SENDS a POSITIVE MESSAGE
Not wearing makeup is sending out a positive message even if only to yourself – and there’s nothing wrong with a boost to your self-esteem. It says I am confident without makeup.
6. IT HELPS SENSITIVE SKIN
If you have sensitive skin, it is best to be very careful about using makeup. Even if you buy products designed for sensitive skin, they still aren’t doing your natural complexion any good. If you think your skin isn’t good enough to go bare, work on clearing it up rather than hiding it under layers of stuff that is harming it.
7. MAKEUP ISN’T ESSENTIAL
We´ve been conditioned to think that makeup is something that we have to put on, in order to look good. Don’t get me wrong – I like makeup. I like the process of putting it on and how it makes me look. But I don’t wear it all the time and certainly not every day. not all the time! It´s not vital to apply makeup; if you worry about how you will be judged if you go makeup free, then work on your self-esteem. That will be much more beneficial than basing your view of your attractiveness on makeup.
