Does Make Up Cause Skin Damage?

Make up is not damaging to your skin as long as you are wearing the right kind of make up. You should choose a make up with quality ingredients. Make sure you are wearing make up that won't clog your pores (free of mineral oil, lanolin or cocoa butter). Also you want something that is free of harsh chemicals, dyes and other residues. Wearing a make up that contains SPF will help prevent sun damage on your face. Sun damage is usually what causes your skin to age faster.

As long as you are taking care of your skin by cleansing and moisturizing before and after your make up application and you are wearing quality make up with skin-friendly ingredients, then you will not have to worry about damaging your skin. You might want to try make up that contains natural ingredients; these ingredients tend to be better for your skin.
