In this world of beauty pageants and fanfare, there is a constant expectations to be at your best all the time. To always be picture-perfect, however, happens at a price. The make-up industry has been guiding women on how a little rouge, foundation or dash of mascara can light up your face in an instant. While it does add to your overall presentation, it also has side effects on your skin. Here are two side effects of make-up on your body:
* Chemicals: Chemicals like Diazolidinyl urea and DMDM Hydantoin, cand tend to release formaldehyde, are a common ingredient in many cosmetic products and are used as an antimicrobial preservative. These chemicals can cause headaches, irritation of skin and damage to the eyes.
* Acne: Your skin also needs to breathe and grow. When you put on make-up, your skin begins to clog. Some types of makeup which are in the form of liquids and creams clog the pores in your skin. This leads to the formation of black-heads, which aren't cleaned regularly can form acne. So make sure you clean your makeup thoroughly with a natural cleanser before going to bed.
