Is Makeup Healthy for Your Skin?

Skin Care Florida

Whether or not your makeup is bad for your skin depends on the type you use. It's hard to find cosmetics that simultaneously give you the results you desire, while also treating your skin gently. Many women rely on their dermatologists for expert advice on products that won't clog the pores or be too rough on the skin.

Depending on your skin type, your dermatologist may recommend that you avoid cosmetics that contain mineral oil, which can clog the pores and lead to pesky acne breakouts. Other individuals would do well to avoid cosmetics with synthetic fragrances, which can be irritating to the skin. Synthetic ingredients might also worsen rosacea in some people. After choosing the right cosmetics for your skin, remember to clean your makeup brushes and sponges every week. Otherwise, you're re-introducing bacteria and oil to your skin.
