Posted By:

Are you someone who likes to look your best every day? Do you enjoy wearing makeup to work/college on a daily basis?

Well, with the wide variety of makeup products available in the markets today, which promise to make you look impeccable, it is rather hard to resist the temptation of wearing makeup on a daily basis.

With the help of the right cosmetics, you can cover the blemishes on your face, make your eyes look sexier, make your features appear well defined and also get that perfect pout, using your favorite shade of lipstick.

Most women, and some men too, would admit that makeup is fun and does a lot to improve their appearance.

Makeup has the power to completely transform a person's appearance, in just a few minutes.

New makeup techniques like contouring can even change the shape of a person's facial features, so people don't even have to think about plastic surgeries!

While it may be true that makeup is wonderful, it is also a fact that most makeup products are infused with numerous chemicals that may be harmful for your skin and health in general.

So, read on to know more about how applying makeup on a daily basis can affect your skin, in this article.


1. Loss Of Eyelashes

Many people who wear heavy eye makeup like mascara, eye shadow, khol, etc, on a daily basis do experience the loss of eyelashes, which is caused by the effects of the chemicals present in those products.


2. Dry Eyes

Another common problem faced by a few people who wear eye makeup is dryness and irritation in the eyes, as the particles from the eye makeup can block the tear ducts in the eyes and reduce lubrication.


3. Oily Skin

Makeup products like foundation creams, concealers, etc., can stimulate excess sebum production in the skin, thus making your skin turn oily and greasy.


4. Acne

Makeup particles can clog the pores of your skin and remain there, especially if you do not take off the makeup properly before you go to bed, thus causing acne and blemishes to appear.


5. Allergies

Many people complain about experiencing allergies like skin rashes, hives, itching, etc., when they use certain brands of makeup. The allergies could be the body's negative reaction to the chemicals.


6. Uneven Patches

Sometimes, using makeup on a daily basis can do more damage to the texture and tone of your skin, causing uneven patches to develop all over!


7. Boils

In a few extreme cases, people can have severe reactions to the chemicals present in facial makeup and may experience boils on their skin, which could leave scars after they heal!
