Should I Take a Break from Makeup?

Do you wear makeup everyday? Do you feel unattractive without makeup? Where do you wear makeup to? Should you take a break from your makeup if you use it everyday? Do you wash your face everyday?

YES

I mean guys really let’s think about some of the things I’ve told you! Products all have nasty ingredients! NASTY NASTY NASTY  No wonder our pores are clogged! See image below *cringe*

Blackheads – Clogged Pores

…Letting you get over that picture and giving you time to stop looking into your compact. Yes yes, I caught you doing that.

So let’s say you put on moisturizer and powder or liquid foundation maybe you even use primer and sunblock (though you just put it on to go to the office and not out to be in the sun *glares at all of you*)…now let’s say you do this EVERY day… Also I’m very aware that a lot of you do NOT wash your face everyday *glares some more* …and then you wonder “Why am I breaking out?” “why is my skin so crappy?” “why are my pores sooo gross?” Well HELLO!!! You a. wear makeup everyday and don’t let the skin just be! Though granted you need some vitamin D among other things, but really you don’t need it from makeup. b. YOU AREN’T WASHING YOUR FACE!
Another thing… you touch your face in the daytime don’t you? Well where else are you putting your hands?

Wash Your Face

And the old excuse “I’m too tired to wash my face” Well that’s crap, even if you get home late keep some wipe on your night stand. You reach over wipe of your makeup while already in bed. Dump your trash in the morning if there isn’t a trash bin near your bed. Otherwise if you’re going to be home from early on in the evening get accustomed to cleaning off your makeup at around 7pm or 8pm. Make it a habit so that later on at night you aren’t “too tired.” Who are you wearing your makeup for at home at 9pm? And depending on your job or day to day life do you REALLY need to be wearing makeup everyday? My job is pretty relaxed, right now, so I am able to show up without anything but moisturizer on my face. Do your skin a favor and go a few days a week without nothing on. Not only will your skin love you, but so will your water line and tear ducts. They get blocked too! Your optometrist absolutely hates makeup on your water line, because it dries the eye and you can fully block them. If you don’t believe me go ask him or her. Go on, make the call, ask…

If you absolutely cannot stand not wearing anything get yourself a lip stain or balm with a tint and go on about your day.

Only Lip Balm

If you shower at night keep your cleaner in the shower so it’s handy and you don’t have to worry about doing it at another time. Although, I hope your face is clean after a shower.

That’s my 2 cents for today.

I hope you’re all having an amazing weekend. Don’t forget to wash your face!

    Yup I must say this is the one thing I do regularly. I always wash my face with cleanser at the end of the day or use a makeup wipe. Always. Otherwise my skin and myself feel yucky. Plus I don’t want to dirty my pillow cases! 😉
