The importance of going makeup free!

We love putting on makeup. Just like clothes, makeup allows us to visually express our personality and moods. 

Makeup plays an important role on our daily lives. Not just women but men use them too.  It can be as simple as our powder or lip-gloss but all in all it is still makeup. We all know that using makeup requires utmost care like removing our makeup before we go to sleep. We also have different skin types, some may be more sensitive than the other.  That’s why proper care is mandatory. Choosing the right products for our face should not be dependent on brands or colors, rather, should be based on skin type.

Sensitive, dry or oily skin has different needs, so be extra careful and vigilant in choosing our make up. Yes, we all have our own preferences when it comes to makeup brands, but whatever we use we should always remember that taking a break is also required for our faces to breathe.


For a more effective skincare regime or routine, we should give our skin a moment to be free of any substance from our makeup and to allow ourselves to be barefaced.

Why should we do it?

Below is a list of reasons why your face needs a breather.

  • Products applied on our face can clog our pores that can contribute to break outs, acnes or blotchiness. Having a routine of letting your face breathe can improve its appearance since our skin is exposed to fresh oxygen.
  • Being barefaced doesn’t mean you won’t apply anything –– though it is up to you if you need to apply products like moisturizer, sunblock and other regiments that can help improve your skin. When going makeup free for a number of hours or days, the products you use will be more effective since it is not blocked by any other products.
  • Your complexion will improve.
  • It helps eradicate other skin problems that can occur with the continuous use of makeup.
  • Makeup contains chemicals that can be absorbed into the body so taking a break on them from time to time will help maintain a healthier looking skin.
  • It makes your natural skin tone smoother, which in turn can help you apply your makeup evenly.
  • Being barefaced can actually make you look and feel younger.
  • If you have oily skin, this will help improve it and help make it less oily. For dry skin, having no make up on can make your moisturizer more effective.
  • Going barefaced promotes fasten skin cell renewal that makes your skin look and feel healthier.


Whatever you decide or however you want to go about this, it is important to remember that are skin should be taken care of. We should be extra careful on what we  apply on it . . . and most importantly is to remember that natural beauty is always the best.
