There are plenty of reasons to love make up. It can help bring out our favorite features, hide flaws,
and make us feel more confident. And if we’re being honest, makeup is blast to play around with (hello, smokey eye YouTube tutorials). But as much as makeup can be a girl’s best friend, it may not be the healthiest thing to slather all over our faces on a daily basis.
Your pores will look smaller
Foundation, blush and bronzer might look nice, but underneath the surface, these tiny makeup particles accumulate in our pores with each wear. Along with all the air pollutants our skin is exposed to each day, dirt builds up, causing pores to become clogged and appear enlarged over time. Although there’s nothing you can do to actually change the size of your pores, going makeup free (and regular
facial cleansing) minimizes buildup inside the pores, making them appear smaller and giving your complexion a smoother finish.
