Harmful Effects Of Make Up Most Women Ignores

Cosmetics have become the need of society. People spend monthly on these products and the amount of variety is so high that cosmetics are available for different seasons and climates as well.

But chemicals found in many of these products can create a range of adverse reactions that undermine your daily beauty regimen and damage your skin.

While some people experience very few side effects from wearing cosmetics such as foundation, powder and lipsticks, others aren't so lucky.

Below are the harmful effects of make up that most users ignored:
Oily Appearance

A thick oily sheen on your face isn't the same as having a youthful glow. Oil-based foundations and creamy powders give a slick appearance and cause eyeliner to smudge or your eye shadow to clump up in the crease above your lid. Stick to water-based foundations and loose powders, instead.


In some cases a foundation or powder may dry out your skin and make it look flaky, dull and ashen. These cosmetics may also cause cracks and fine wrinkles in your skin which could cause an infection to develop. Dryness also makes your skin itch.

Clogged Pores and Acne

Many people who wear makeup never get a single pimple. So while it's incorrect to say that makeup can cause acne, it can make it flare up if you already have blemishes. When you wear foundations and powders that clog your pores and hair follicles even more, you can aggravate acne.


Some make-up ingredients such as fragrances and preservatives trigger allergic reactions, including contact dermatitis. Look out for formaldehyde which is mostly known for preserving corpses, it can irritate your eyes and skin.

Here's how to prevent the side effects of make-up.

1. After using thick layers of make up, one should not use hard soap or hard face wash to remove it. Instead, use a baby face wash or appropriate face wash.

2. Clean or wash your face with a cleanser which is designed for your skin type. Cleanse your face 2 or 3 times with cleanser and non fragranced wet wipes.

3. To remove the eye make -up always use a good remover with fewer chemicals and massage the eyes properly to get rid of dark circles. To get a refreshing feeling you can put green tea ice bags which will clean the impurities thoroughly and do the nourishment of the skin.

4. Pat your face dry with a soft towel. Don't rub madly as your facial skin is not only sensitive, it tells the world whether you are healthy or not.

5. Proper cleansing of the lips is a must; remove the lipstick with mild cleanser and damp cotton or wet tissues.
