No makeup. Actually.

I'm going to post a picture of me without makeup. Because hey, I love makeup, but I'm also working on embracing my face au naturel, too.

 

None of this "I'm not wearing makeup" when you're wearing a tinted moisturizer, brown mascara, and have a slight flush to your cheeks and lips. I'm talking no makeup AT ALL (No, not even clear lip balm).

 

This is me, about 10 minutes out of the shower.

 

Anyone else brave enough? :smileywink:

Re: No makeup. Actually.

I took this just now. This is after doing my morning skincare routine and applying my sunblock and moisturizer. I have a lip balm on but it doesn't have any color. That's my natural lip color which I don't like at all, lol. IMG_20141111_095532.jpg

 

Ever since I bought the skincare recommendations given by - yes- Jemly, my skin has been waaaaay better. I used to have a lot of marks from pimple popping and all that jazz. My skin was okay back then but now it feels fresh and dehydrated and as smooth as a baby's bottom except for the once in a while breakout I have due to my love for junk food. :X 

My face is slowly returning to it's normal color, even though subtle it was a bit darker than the rest of my body cause I'd never use sunblock. Also.. need to work on my arms, since the outer part is extremely tan, hahaha. 

 

 

Here's the morning products I use:

 

Boscia Black Cleanser

FAB radiance Pads

Murad Essential C Toner

Ole Henriksen Collagen Booster

Moisturizer (usually just any, using clean and clear atm - morning burst hydrating gel)

And a vegetarian sunblock from the alba brand.

Thank you but no, they're not my real eyes. I put on my contacts in the morning before doing my skincare, I don't want to have to put on and take off my glasses all the time so its easier :smileytongue:

Re: No makeup. Actually.

I shared a picture in April (but only a few people saw it before I deleted it).  Since then, I've been meaning to replace it.  This was earlier today.  Wearing nothing but moisturizer and eye gel.

This one was before I put anything on (including moisturizer or eye gel)

Thanks.  It is the reverse camera, so it kind of blurs some of my splotchiness and freckles.  My skin does not look quite as smooth in real life.  On the rare occasions when my husband or someone takes my photo with the front camera, you can see all of the flaws that are most certainly there.

I added my older son in the photo to distract you. :smileywink:  No makeup, just a lot of moisturizer because my skin is not happy with all the salicylic acid I've been throwing at it.  Headed to the dermatologist next month for the first time in 5 years...Doryx seems to be the only thing that works for me.

Your skin looks very smooth:smileyhappy:.  Mine gets dry as well when I go on peeling frenzies.

Re: No makeup. Actually.

I'm crossing my fingers that my acne clears up over the next few months on an oral routine.  I started taking it when I got a job teaching at 21 and stopped at 25 to start trying to conceive.  I'm 30 now and done with kids so I think it's time to go back on.  It really makes a difference in my self esteem.
