Do you wear makeup and want to give it up for the truly natural look? Do you panic if you oversleep and don’t have time to put your face on before running out the door? Do you wish you could convince your friends they don’t NEED to wear makeup by setting a glowing example yourself? Don’t get me wrong – I think makeup is a fabulous form of self-expression – but so can be going au naturel. And here’s how:
1. Keep Your Hands off Your Skin!
If you have a blemish, you want to pick at it, right? Wrong. Once you pick at one blemish, or even touch your skin, whatever bacteria caused the blemish or skin problem is now on your fingers or under your nails. So if you go on to touch your skin in other places and even pick at another blemish, you’ve introduced the bacteria to a new place. Furthermore, the skin on your face is the most delicate skin on your body, and tugging or pulling at your face causes it to be less elastic, setting you up for wrinkles. The first lesson in how to look good without makeup is: don’t touch your face except when absolutely necessary!
