Some people leave it for special occasions such as weddings or dates, others feel that it is a crucial aspect of their lives, either for professional or because they view it as a form of creative expression. Regardless of why we use it, there are some important factors to take into account before using it, such as:
- Always take it off before bed: many brands of make up are oil-based which can block up the skin, thereby potentially causing skin blemishes and irritation if left on for too long.
- Do your research:
- Some makeup contains toxins: There are many chemicals used in cosmetics products that are known to cause cancer and other health issue when combined or absorbed into the body too frequently. So, it’s advisable to research what they are and to avoid products that contain them.
- Product testing: While using untested makeup is incredibly sensitive towards lab-animals, it also limits the extent to which cosmetic scientists are able to ensure that new combinations of chemicals are safe for use are limited, which effectively turns their consumers into guinea pigs for new products.
- Always check reviews: These can provide helpful insights before you buy products that you plan on using regularly, regardless of whether they are homeopathic or not. It’s also a good idea to spot test products on a part of your skin, if you know that you are prone to allergies or have sensitive skin.
