Should young girls wear makeup?

young girls wear makeup
I got Huge email about teen makeup Issue, and even from the moms. So I deiced to write this today. Just because cosmetic companies want to make money, it does not mean that someone should listen to them.
I used to have beauty products and used them in my teens. Later on, when I had a child and read a study that unsavory items in those cosmetics can trigger allergies in infants, I had to throw it all out when I had a newborn of my own. Better safe than sorry.

Application and removal of makeup - if done repeatedly - stretches out the delicate skin around the eyes causing early ageing and saggy skin, clogs the pores causing breakouts, and dries the skin causing early wrinkles (and look at that - those same cosmetic companies will helpfully offer high priced concoctions and creams to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and to lift the sagging skin.. oh.. how thoughtful! here, take my money again!)

 Big NO to young girls makeup wearing

Every girl can have makeup, but your age is an indication of the amount and type. To help you decide, refer to this suggested makeup age chart:
    10 and below - Concealer, lip gloss, a tiny bit of mascara (7-10 for mascara).
    11-14 - Eye primer, concealer, mascara, lip gloss or lipstick. A little bit of blush is fine! Some eyeliner couldn't hurt but do not wing it.
    15-17 - You can wear any makeup, just not a lot of it. When doing eyeliner, do not wing it. Do not use bold lipstick; it just looks wrong.
    18+ - You can do whatever you want. You are adults.
Top Tips for Teen
Spots are brought on not by eating any particular food or not washing your face, but by hormones, which make your skin oilier and the pores more likely to clog up.
If gentle cleansing and anti-spot lotions aren't helping clear them up, see your GP.
Wear sunscreen every day. Choose a moisturiser with SPF and UVA protection and you are sorted. A good one to try is Eau Thermale Avene SPF20 Moderate Protection Emulsion, which is light, non-greasy and good on combination skin. £9.74 at Boots.
Don't be scared of make-up. Experiment with it at home to see what suits you, or try free make-overs in department stores. Always remove make-up at the end of the day. It's kinder to your face.
On the other hand, there's no rule that says you have to wear make-up, ever. Men, and boys, always say they prefer women and girls to look natural, rather than made-up.
