I also want to give my skin a break, as I'm really frustrated that I actually now HAVE to wear foundation / tinted moisturiser to cover up my scars. This whole procedure started just before I got married, so about 1 year ago.
Basically I'm not going to wear foundation or a tinted moisturiser!
For the past year I have been getting hormonal breakouts every month around the sides of my face. It's actually really disturbing and looks really disgusting. I'm hoping the limitation of makeup will help clear up some of it and make me feel better.
Below is a photo of me just before my outburst of spots, I have no concealer, foundation - nothing. Just face cream and lipstick. My skin was actually FLAWLESS!
My makeup routine 1 year ago only consisted of Benetint on cheeks and lips. Lip gloss, mascara and some cream eyeshadow if I was feeling adventurous! I really want to go back to this kind of makeup routine!
PRODUCTS I AM ALLOWING MYSELF TO USE:
1) Lip products
2) Under eye concealer
4) Cream blush
I will be putting this plan into action, as of today and will conclude the outcome in a month! I will however make exceptions for special occasions, like birthdays and anniversary's :) I will keep you updated. I am probably going to regret this as my skin is looking awful and I can feel new pimples forming :( But, hopefully this will improve the way my skin looks and functions.
If you wear too much makeup and are sick of your spots and scared of premature aging, why not join me?
I will be doing an updated skincare regime shortly. X
