Always choose skincare over makeup. Here’s why?

The world of beauty is nothing less than complicated. The word “beauty” has a very contrasting meaning for everyone. Some people are attracted to physical beauty and some are attracted towards inner beauty. Nonetheless, everyone wants to appear the best they can and however they can. Some people associate looking their best as being confident and some associate it with having a charming persona. With this blog post, we are not here to share the best products or any best budget product list. But, we are here to discuss beauty in terms of skincare and makeup. 

Our skin protects us from so much, from the harmful environment to several injuries. It is only fair to protect our skin from anything that we can. To many people, skincare is more important than applying makeup. The reason is, you cannot always apply makeup, but you can always make your skin appear beautiful. Undoubtedly you can spend thousands on makeup but isn’t it better to spend them on getting a beautiful overall glowing complexion rather than just spending on concealer or foundation? While skincare is more important than doing makeup that doesn’t mean it is in any way better than makeup. But rather than just covering the imperfections, makeup is a great way to express yourself. We need to make sure that we become comfortable with what we have. Makeup should never be used to hide imperfections (though, it does that well) but it should always be used to enhance what we already have. 

Yeah, we understand the concept of using no products on face. But, a skincare routine is a lot more than just cleansing, toning, and moisturizing. Not to deny that it should always be something you follow. In the world of social media, where we see YouTubers and influencers flaunting their perfectly painted faces, an urge to try out new trends and different ideas may pop up in the mind. But have you wondered? How do these influencers and artists that we watch on these platforms take care of their skin? It’s their full-time job to look good in front of the camera. These influencers, artists, or models take very good care of their skin, routine, lifestyle, diet, and more. It is crucial to keep a few things in mind for maintaining healthy-looking skin. The thing to remember here is that a skincare routine and a makeup routine always work better together. After all, applying makeup to dull skin wouldn’t look that good, would it?   

Why Choose Skincare?

The benefits of skincare are not only seen in the present but also the future. Being the fast-moving generation we are always looking for a quick fix. We are so demanding, always in the hunt for the newest ingredients and innovations. During the pandemic, many of us are working from home. We stay at home and of course, makeup has taken a backseat.
