Now, you think about your skin when you apply makeup to it, the pores of the skin that are present on the skin's layers become clogged due to makeup liquids or powder-like foundation, compact, etc. It leads to the formation of blackheads, which might eventually break out in the form of facial acne.

Premature aging
The fact is, while a large population of the world uses makeup, a few know how to apply them correctly. How many times have you got that perfect mascara wing for your eyes? Do you remember all those times that you rubbed your face with foundation too hard and quick? If you don't use them gently, then you just abuse your skin.

Skin Allergies
Nothing is worse than not being able to avoid itching your skin. Itchiness, redness, and skin allergies mean your skin is irritated. Makeup products, and especially those with water, come with preservatives. Chemicals like parabens are added to prevent bacteria from growing in them. In terms of their effects on the body, parabens are known for all the wrong reasons. They are widely popular to trigger allergic reactions and are also hormonal balance disruptors.

Skin Discoloration
Cosmetic products that are not regulated and contain low-quality ingredients, can cause skin discoloration. Most of these products have a mix of thousands of chemicals, any of which could be reacting with your skin. Patches, uneven skin, and freckles are part and parcel of using products heavy with chemicals.
