No Make-Up March

Okay, those of us who love make up will be wondering is this woman insane?
I have good reason. I promise.

I have always had sensitive skin, even before I began getting pimples and all, I was allergic to anything that had perfumes in it. No nice smelling lotions, soaps or cremes because they would cause rashes constantly. Eventually, as with most allergies I have had in life, with age they improved and I think I got a little bit too excited about it all.

My skin, even at 19 is still pretty sensitive, especially on my face. Unfortunately for me, this means I have to be careful with which products I use and when I use them. IMG_0223.JPG
Generally, I stick to The Body Shop Fresh Nude Foundation and the Garnier Ambre Solaire BB Cream because I know they keep my skin alright and minimise the breakouts. They both contain SPF which I am a happy bunny about.
However, despite this, I am still a woman and hormones are a bitch. So naturally, being pedantic about my products isn’t all that it boils down to. Health too has a HUGE role to play, let us be honest here.

So for this month, just as a little experiment, I have decided to wear no foundation… (maybe with the exception of my birthday).
I want to see if that makes any difference at all to my skin and then I can further evaluate what I am doing wrong and right in my daily routine.

As with make-up, I am careful of the soaps I use and stick to The Body Shop brand for this as well. I love them as they are all light and don’t feel harsh on the skin. I personally use the Seaweed ranIMG_0219.JPGge. It has a neutral smell and isn’t overwhelming.
The moisturisers are light and don’t feel heavy on my skin, yet I feel as though my skin is still getting the nutrients it needs.
I shall be writing a review post soon on my experience with the range!

If I am going to be honest, some days I stick to using just water when I feel my skin isn’t having a great day just to avoid irritating it any further.

I do have quite a bit of scarring on my skin and it has patches of different pigmentation due to me picking at my spots. This worries me everyday I am roaming the streets of Amsterdam without make-up, and I always feel like people are staring at my skin constantly. At the end of the day though, it’s my skin, it’s the only one I will ever have and I can cover it up,  I do from time to time but I’m also trying to learn to accept those imperfections as a part of who I am.

I shall let you all know how it goes down the road, hopefully it all improves a little bit!
Have any of you tried this before? Let me know your thoughts and tricks to keep your skin looking healthy and break-out free!

      I think other site proprietors should take this web site as an model, very clean and great user friendly style and design, let alone the content. You are an expert in this topic!

    • This is such a great topic – and an interesting discussion. As I do want more women in power, the outcome of that person picked, I think, should be the most important issue. I believe that John McCain’s announcement of his female Vice Presidential running mate was a strategic move, since Hillary is out. Whatever does happen in the near future, I am happy that women are becoming more involved…

      Gjorde en egen variant med 1 dl kokosnötsmjöl, 2 dl nötmjöl (blandade nötter, mest paranötter och några få ekologiska mandlar & hasselnötter), 3 msk fibrex, 1 msk husk och 3 tsk bakpulver. Toppade med några krossade valnötter. Mer kolhydrater förstås, men supergott och med mängder av nyttigheter.

    • Well do you know what your score is? I do know that if you have all of your cards paid off but still open it hurts your score, you need to have a open balance of about 20% of your actual limit to actually help your score, I know it sounds weird but is true. And if you close them it is bad too. If you can sell your car on your own you will probably get much more than trading it in. If you have a score higher than 700 then you should get a great deal.

      God I love !The ferret managed to ruin their latest mailing on a sale of cartons so I called them up and a real person answered after one ring. I gave her my customer ID, and asked that she’d resend it. Then I asked if she could check my history, because I just really wanted to place a reorder at the sale prices.No problem, the history was in my inbox in a minute. The whole conversation wasn’t even two.THAT’S how to make a customer happy.  Jim Cooley

      I prefer to shop at the beginning of a sales cycle for two reasons. First is because I have had coupons that would have made free products with the sale price but the store canceled the sale after the second day (Weis, puff Tissues) because they were loosing to much stock.Second I have had coupons expire before I could use rain checks.

      Extracting rents from the masses has always counted as "necessary work" for the governing class, all the way back to Sargon.Versailles is particularly nice on a Sunday afternoon – all those rents extracted from the French peasants payed for the hundreds of fountains.

      Consider this possibility: Johnson is an easy way for the GOP to establish credibility with blacks. Johnson is dead and his pardon is purely symbolic.If Obama drops everything and pardons him, then McCain will take credit for pushing him to "do the right thing",If Obama doesn't act immediately then McCain wins points. Brilliant, in a Karl Rove kind of way.The question that I have is, what has McCain done for any living black man who might actually benefit from a pardon?

      Gerry,I am not sure of the date of the Watanabe letterSince there is no date in the text, it is unknown. "In the second letter, Liancourt Rocks was even referred to as "Oki's Matsushima."Isn't the 2nd recommendation by Watanabe known in South Korea? It prove that Sloww's interpretation is wrong.松島は竹島より我近き方にあれば日本に屬し朝鮮又異論ある能はす。(If Matsushima is near us from Takeshima, it belongs to Japan. And It can't say Korean territory or other objection.)
