You hear the word “Wellness” a lot these days. We’re a lot more health conscious. We do our best to eat right, and stay active.
Wellness is all about taking care of ourselves completely; mind, body and soul, and this includes our problem skin.
So why are we still wearing makeup everyone else is wearing?
We might be in problem skin denial, and here’s why:
We Think We’re Already Wearing The Right Stuff
We’ve watched the infomercials, we read the claims and saw the before and after photos. We’re actually wearing the makeup that’s supposed to be good for our problem skin, but it just isn’t working. Why do we keep using it? Because we’re convinced if it doesn’t work, nothing will!
What’s really happening: Everyone’s skin is very different, problem skin or not. Just because a brand works well for someone, doesn’t mean it will work for another. It’s possible there could be an ingredient your skin is super-sensitive to. There’s something else out there that will work for you. You don’t have to settle for less than great skin.
We’re Afraid We’ll Spend More Money On “Problem Skin” Makeup
We’re afraid our problem skin will “nickel and dime” us for the rest of our lives, and think that special makeup for problem skin will cost us a lot more.
What’s really happening: When you use the wrong type of makeup for your skin, you’ll spend more money, but it won’t be spent the way you think.
You’ll either spend your cash on pricey concealers that cover up your acne (that won’t make it any better), or you’ll spend it at the doctor/and or pharmacy when that makeup ends up causing a breakout or rash.
The Bottom Line
Problem skin doesn’t have to be a problem at all, in fact it can be easily managed with a little TLC, and a commitment to using gentle makeup and skincare products that won’t irritate your skin.
