People when they go out want to look their best and create a good impression on others. No one wants to get harsh comments for their aesthetic concerns when they meet new and known people. Major aesthetic concerns can make anyone feel insecure about stepping out of their home and interacting freely with others.

However, daily and frequent makeup usage can cause issues, aggravate the existing issues and gradually damage your skin.

At CNF in Bengaluru, we follow a holistic approach to customize aesthetic treatments to fix your aesthetic concerns and give you glowing and flawless skin.

Harms of Daily Makeup Usage

Daily makeup application can harm your skin because it contains harsh ingredients. Here are the most common damages caused due to everyday makeup usage:

  • Clogged Pores

The pores are little openings in your skin around sweat glands and hair follicles that help your dermis to breathe and pass gasses and liquids via the skin surface. Keeping makeup on your skin for long may cause bumps, breakouts, blackheads, whiteheads and other skin concerns. Such issues may cause large and visible pores that are likely to get chronic clogging.  

  • Premature Aging

Wearing makeup for long may clog pores and reduce elastin and collagen production in the skin, which causes wrinkles and fine lines. Makeup along with exposure to the harmful sun rays causes predominant skin aging. So, apply sunscreen whenever you are out and wash your face at the end of the day. Skipping the application of sunscreen aggravated the common ageing signs, such as wrinkles, fine lines, rough texture, laxity, changes in pigmentation and vascular issues. 

  • Hormone Disruptors

Many makeup and cosmetic products contain endocrine disruptors that can cause hormonal imbalances. Such disruptors may cause critical issues in your body such as immunity and neurological complications. Parabens, common endocrine disruptors in cosmetics, aren’t water-soluble and they can penetrate your skin and disrupt endocrine and reproductive systems. Phthalates, the hazardous toxin found in cosmetics can disrupt the reproductive system in both males and females. 

  • Dry or Oily Skin 

Your skin may get drier or oilier when you apply makeup products that don’t suit your skin type. Excess oil production in your skin may cause clogged pores and severe breakouts. Xerosis or extra dry skin may cause scaly and rough patches that may itch, bleed or crack. 

  • Breakouts

Breakouts may occur on your skin because of poor diet, hormonal imbalance and unhealthy lifestyle.  Make-up can deteriorate the breakouts and cause them frequently in your skin. So, minimize the makeup application if your skin is acne-prone. Apply only non-comedogenic and oil-free products that won’t clog the pores in your skin.

  • Eye Irritation

Makeup containing irritants can irritate your eyes. So, apply products that suit the more delicate and thinner skin surrounding your eyes. Using eyeliner/highlighter on your waterline of the eyelid interior may block oil glands, which protect the cornea and pass the product’s bacteria/particles inside your eyes. Change your eyeliners and mascara at an interval of 3 months as they are likely to cause fungal and bacterial contamination. 

  • Pigmentation Changes

Cosmetic products, which inflame/irritate your skin may cause PIH or dark spots. Sun exposure and environmental pollution emit hazardous free radicals that damage skin and cause hyperpigmentation. Patch test new makeup products and stop using cosmetics that cause rashes, peeling and itching. 

  • Health Concerns

Makeup products containing carcinogenic and toxic elements may cause critical health issues.  So, ensure you consult a doctor before buying any cosmetics if you have sensitive skin.
