I made a vow to pay as much attention to my skin as I do to my hair so its been microdermabrasion, gycolic peels, and sunscreen over the past few months and it is working well.  I have gone back to using blot poweder (MAC) eyeliner, mascara, and lipstick but I'm not going to wear foundation unless it is for a special occasion.
 
I do truely believe that make-up messes up the skin over time.  I hear what the other ladies have said... and yes I do use name brand, quality make-up.  I also try to take care of my face because of my extra oily skin... which means cleaning my face often, and the make-up still does a number on my skin! 
 
I like your persective on caring for you face as you do for your hair and that makes perfect sense to me.  Im going to take that same moto and start doing the same.

you can wear heavy makeup every day if you dont care what you'll like like in 10 years...but if you have any desire to stay looking youthful you will stay away from that kind of stuff as much as possible.
 
its impossible for skin to be the same after being treated w chemicals day in and day out. its the LONG term that matters in this case. its not some "myth".
 
I have wore makeup for years and my skin is in great condition. As a matter of fact I am 29 but everyone thinks I am 18-21 y/o...My mother wore make-up everyday for many years when she was working and her skin is fine and she is 63 y/o.
 
I don't compare my skin to those of White/Black Hollywood actress considering 99% of them look bad because they've abused/or currently abusing alcohol, cigarettes, drugs, excessive partying, and plastic surgery because that stuff will age more than anything. Let's not forget how you eat (and we know African Americans have the "best" diets) and stress matters too.
Also, the lack of sunscreen affects the condition of your too...(yes, we as AA need sunscreen) There are too many factors to determine why someone skin is "Broke out" or "Aged" and you darn sure can't blame it all on make-up! I am mean your face can break out from your bacteria filled cell phone, touching you face after using your computer (which have more bacteria than some toilets)...

If this was for me, I have been using makeup for longer than 12 years. My skin is still in excellent condition. As I said, its all in proper skin care, and to a lesser degree, the quality of the products. Genetics also play a role.Wink
 
 
 
But you admitted to not wearing foundation! Its foundation that does the most damage because it covers your wqhole face like a mask. So..if you lay off it, it wont have any effects...
