We’re so involved in the race for perfection that we paint over our uniqueness with a thick layer of concealer. But as it turns out, makeup controls our brain just like a puppet, and there are certain benefits, even for our mental health, if we stop putting it on.
We at Bright Side decided to look at the other side of the coin. We’d love to show you how the absence of makeup can actually make your whole personality flourish.
1. Your brain stops thinking you’re a stranger when you’re barefaced.

But once her makeup is in place, she feels as if her newly made-up face is her own. This suggests that a woman in makeup sees her made-up face as a representation of her true self, in her relations with other people.
2. Your skin becomes more resistant to sun damage.
Some makeup products contain ingredients that may make the top of your skin dry and flaky. For example, retinol is recommended to be applied at night to avoid any risks of sun damage to the skin. The other one is hydroquinone, which can be found in facial serums that are used to make the skin tone more even. It makes skin more susceptible to harmful UV radiation. When you’re barefaced, all you need to buy is a good skincare product with SPF-protection.👇👇👇👇
