Back in the early days when makeup was still in the process of being perfected, women had to go through of skin problems because of makeup. Clogged pores, skin breakouts and irritation are among the many problems that they had to go through. Today, thanks to technology, makeup is one of the many beauty products that have been reformulated time and time again.

So why should one wear makeup? A lot of women wear makeup these days no doubt but it could also be for a good reason. It’s either they are required to do so for their jobs or simply because makeup enhances what beauty they already have. However, not all of us are makeup users. In fact, there are a lot of people who still think that makeup contributes to skin irritation and clogged pores. However, most of the ingredients used in makeups today include pure ingredients. You might have encountered words like hypoallergenic, minerals, scent free, dermatologists approved and many others whenever you take a look at certain beauty products. That’s because these ingredients are made to ensure that nothing harmful can irritate your skin.

There are many ways in which makeup can be a benefit to you:

  • It has anti-aging properties

Although it is a fact that no one has ever found the fountain of youth just yet but many beauty products these days have the ability to “delay” aging. Of course, if you are someone who isn’t ready to face the wrinkled phase just yet then use makeup or products that can help you look younger than your actual age. It may not necessarily stop you from growing old but it can definitely help cover up some parts of you that are. Makes sense right?

  • It’s not that harsh on skin

Products that have mineral properties are made from organic ingredients. These are taken from plants that help in lightening, brightening, rejuvenating and exfoliating your skin. So gone are the days when you need to put thick layers of make up on your face only to end up with irritated skin or worse, pimples.

  • It helps protect you from the harshness of the sun

Makeup products that have sun protection are great finds. Keep in mind that the sun has UV rays that can irritate the skin and sometimes lead to sun burn. Now using any makeup with sun protection properties can help you from that.

  • There are products for sensitive skin

If you want to use makeup but have sensitive skin then you have other options to take. Choose makeups that are created to be hypoallergenic. These products were specifically engineered for people who have sensitive skin thus using them is safe.

Wearing makeup is fun and every woman should at least experience that in their lives. Just be sure to find the right ones for you and enjoy the experience. Make sure to wipe them off and rinse your face before going to bed. Keep in mind that it’s not the makeup that clogs your pores or irritates your skin but your hygiene. You can wear all the makeup you want but as long as you keep a strict clean up afterwards, it’s all good. So do enjoy it and have fun!
