Aging Skin: The Dirty On Makeup and Aging and What You Can Do Now

Makeup clogs your pores period. When you perspire or it’s hot and humid out, the last thing you want is a bunch of chemicals, toxins and makeup getting trapped and irritating and clogging your pores, this rapidly ages and drags your face down.

While makeup can help hide imperfections and age spots, it can make you look older. For example, some heavy foundations and powders can settle into the wrinkles around your eyes and mouth, which will eventually accentuate fine lines and pull the skin down.

Makeup decreases collagen production through oxidative stress which contributes to loose, dry, cracked skin. Also, when the skin is dry, it's less elastic so wrinkles are more prominent and this dryness is compounded by environmental pollutants sticking to your make-up, causing what is known as oxidative stress, where the skin is attacked by harmful free radicals. These molecule-sized compounds cause damage to various cellular structures in the skin and can actually decrease the production of collagen - the substance that gives skin its plumpness - compounding the wrinkle issue.

Experts estimate that when you wear heavy makeup and or sleep with your makeup on, in as little as a month's time, your skin is biologically approximately a decade older. Now think about that!
