Does Makeup age the skin?
Posted 15 February 2009 - 04:59 AM
I had never heard of such a thing and started freakin out because I've worn makeup since I was 17/18 and I am 22 years old now. I started looking in the mirror checking for wrinkles, applying Vitamin E, and Vitaminc C serum to my skin to preserve my youth.
My friend doesn't wear any makeup at all, except for lipgloss, and I notice women who don't wear makeup seem to have a bone to pick with women who like to experiment their look by wearing foundation and eyeshadow. I've had employees make snarky comments that "makeup is not good for the skin", around me, as if they're implying that it's a bad thing I wear makeup.
I like to wear makeup, different kinds because I don't like to wake up and see the same ol face everyday it gets so boring.
but enough of my rambling, does anyone find that comment my friend made to be true?

start using anti-aging creams, eye creams early because it's never too early (just as a precaution lol)
and yea like the other poster's comments said.
just don't go sleeping in your make up everyday. (although I can't say I've never done that, I was too tired XD and I feel really bad in the morning for not taking makeup off)

i dont think makeup is bad per se cuz im such a makeup lover and dont leave home w/o it.
but, we do many things that torture our skin on a regular basis like dehydration, sleep deprivation, alcohol consumption, stress, smoking etc and i guess makeup adds to the list.
im talking from my own experience here and i used to wear makeup everyday for like pretty much straight 12 hrs or longer. my skin was horrible back then! i felt sry for my skin for being covered w/ some liquid and powder the whole time.
realistically speaking, u put some stuff that is foreign to ur skin. that cant be good! especially in the long run it does take a toll.
i still love makeup though... lol <3

It's true you'll also get comments like that when you wear heavy makeup, i don't know why. But i learned not to pay attention to them, you'll always find someone ready to judge you so be yourself.

In all seriousness, though...I would think that makeup would form a protective barrier between your skin and environmental factors that could cause free radical damage. A lot of makeup also has SPF protection now as well to protect from sun damage that can age the skin.

It's impossible to say.. I think the negatives are outweighed by positives though, so I'm sticking to my makeup

I say wear your makeup also. Just make sure you take care of your skin after.

I completely agree. I hate it when non-makeup wearer's say stuff like that, like it's a bad thing or that I'm cheating bc I help myself with a little cosmetics. It's not cheating and it's not bad; it's a multi-billion dollar industry. If you have perfect skin and can get away with it, fine but I can't so I don't and there's nothing wrong with that.

|I think that smoking, drinking alcohol, greasy, salt filled diet, and stress (absorbing a friend's negative make-up attitude) ages the skin! Go 'head and rock your makeup girlfriend!!|
