A while ago, I shared a little discussive piece where I said that the idea that wearing makeup is bad for your skin is a fallacy. It is! It’s nothing to do with the makeup (unless of course, you use a product that is inherently bad or poisonous), but all to do with how you care for your skin after.
Well today, I’m going to propose the notion that wearing base makeup, at minimum, can be good for your skin. No really.
I’m going to tell you this. I never wore makeup or even foundation until I started my first job, in my 20’s. I started life in simpler times, not in the age of selfies and Instagram (thank goodness! LOL!) but even then, I was never very good about wearing base makeup. I just never found the right one as a lot of foundations back then were heavy or oily.
These days however, we are spoilt for choice. There are so many good quality base products out there, that it’s quite easy to find one that suits our skin and preference. And you know what? I’ve realised that wearing base makeup, be it BB creams or CC creams or foundations, can actually be good for our skin.
I know, you’re sitting there raising one brow at me and going “You have to be kidding!” Well, hear me out
