Would You Dare to Break Up With Your Makeup?

I love when celebs bare it all... by which I mean no makeup. Granted they're all beautiful creatures so it shouldn't be as big of a deal as it is. But I think it sends a great message to young girls. I've bared it all on the blog before. I always wish I held off wearing makeup longer. Whenever I admire someone's fabulous skin their response is the same "I don't wear makeup" and I'm like dammit! As soon as you start wearing makeup your skin is forever changed. Don't start too young! Now at age 28, I try to let my skin breathe as often as I can and often use my weekends for face masks.

I've always had sensitive skin and would get a lot of breakouts in high school. I always have naturally rosy cheeks, which I tried to hide with makeup. Galderma Laboratories, L.P. is actually a company I use as I'm a long time fan of Cetaphil. They've recently launched a product to help treat rosacea. Rosacea affects an estimated 16 million Americans so you're not alone. Over 4 in 5 (82%) rosacea sufferers have used cosmetics to cover up redness. Mirvaso® (brimonidine) Topical Gel, 0.33%* is the first and only gel specifically developed and proven to reduce the persistent facial redness of rosacea. So don't try and cover it up. Asks your doctor if it's right for you and in the meantime let your skin breathe makeup free.

And don't miss out on their Emmy Awards Show ticket giveaway

  1. I'm seriously in love with the packaging! The hand cream sounds amazing! I get terrible cracked hands in the winter and need to track this down.
