Hey Beauties,So today is the 22nd March 2012 as you well know, but do you know its National No Makeup Day also???
There has been a lot of talk over this day on Twitter, which has shown mixed reviews and just plain old ‘ahhh that’s rubbish’ which got me thinking beauties…
Do we rely on makeup too much???
Of course every girl wants to look pretty, enhance our beauty and make ourselves feel comfortable but are we over stepping the mark?
The last month I have worn makeup non-stop as I haven’t had time to have makeup free days, but for the first time in my life I have had breakouts on my skin like I’ve never seen before. Of course I have the odd spot now and again and when it’s that time of the month, but never this bad. This got me thinking whether the makeup was to blame and if I could of managed to wear a little less makeup this month?
“I recently created a poll asking how often woman wear makeup and the results were 70% of woman wears it every day”.
I for one am not dismissing this as a bad fact but It has got me thinking do we wear makeup out of choice? Or because we have too? Of course our work life and personal life sometimes requires us to wear makeup but what about the damage it is doing to our skin and emotional health?
I have spoken with friends and colleagues about whether they wear makeup as a security blanket or because they want to? And to my amazement most of my friends and colleagues wear makeup to hide behind and disguise. They use makeup to hide behind the stress of a job, love life and their personal self issues, which range from they think a tan will make them look better or they have bad skin, that they don’t like certain features so they use makeup to cover this up, when in fact sometimes it doesn’t help. Of course there are also woman out there that enjoy using lots of makeup and thats personal choice too.
So that’s why I think that today is a great day to really sit down and think about WHY you wear makeup?
And because I have been inspired today I will be taking you through my journey of a healthy skin, health and makeup routine that I think will benefit all beauties. I will be posting from Monday onwards.
