Skin Care vs. Make- Up

Many women get skin care and make up confused.

They believe that concealer will cover the pizza binge for 2 weeks, and that foundation will cover the fact that you should exfoliate twice a day, especially for oily skin.

So what is skin care?

Skin care is the proper maintenance and hygiene of the largest mass of your body which is the skin.

How should you take care of your skin?
1.  Diet and lifestyle are major factors to skin quality.

2. You can be a size 0 and have poor skin because of stress, alcohol, caffeine, and drug consumption, excessive make- up, especially stage quality make up.

3. Also refined sugar can contribute to black spots around your skin, especially if you consume a lot of white flour carbs and sweets.

So now what?

You should only buy skin care products from brands that are dedicated in skin care, and do not have a make line attached to it.

This is important because you want the best quality skin care and companies that are focused on skin care only. I find when brands spread themselves to thin there core business always suffers because of the lack of focus or dedicated to new trends within that category.


Many products work well on different skin types for various reasons. So a drugstore brand can get one person amazing results when prestige brand can get another person amazing results as well.

This is something that I had to learn and play around with for years. My beauty regimen is a cream based  cleanser with SK- II follow up products.

Now for Make-Up:

There are make brands that I love, I will also choose a lip gloss over a lipstick because it take me to day to night easy and they have built in moisturizing properties.

I love Tarte and Bare Minerals Make Up, because they allow my skin to breathe with out damaging it and it gives me the coverage.

I don't wear make- up every day because your skin needs to breathe and all that product is no good for the skin.

So there you have it the real deal about skin-care vs. make-up!
