Can Makeup Really Help Your Skin?

I'm sure at some point in our lives we've all been told that wearing make-up is bad for your skin and yes it is if you don't throughly cleanse your skin after wearing it. One thing we don't hear very often at all is that it's good for your skin! Clinique have formulated a foundation with the view to actually improve our skin overtime for the days we go make-up free. 

Personally, I never view foundation as a skincare product, nor do I care if my foundation has any skincare benefits, however after I was using the new Even Better Glow foundation for a couple of days, I knew there was something different with my skin and I couldn't understand why as my skincare routine hadn't changed. I'd completely forgotten about all of the claims the foundation made as I was genuinely just enjoying wearing it each day. 

Even Better Glow contains salicylic acid which is what helps to retexturize the skin. I'm not 100% on this one yet as my skins texture is something that really bothers me and I'm very aware of. On the other hand, a lot of people have been telling me that my skin is looking great and when I point out the texture they tell me I'm crazy.. so who knows!

It also contains Vitamin C which has been giving my skin that 'glow' that everybody is after these days. As I've mentioned hundreds of times on my blog, I am an oily skinned girl so 'glowing' isn't necessarily on my agenda but somehow this has created such healthy looking skin with and without make-up. I find myself only reaching for foundation when I have to (e.g. work, occasions), and opting for natural skin otherwise. 

Whilst I haven't thrown out all of my skincare products in favour of a foundation, I really struggle to put this down to use something else as I have experienced such positive changes in my skin and I don't want it to stop!

As far as a foundation goes, if you love dewy skin then you will seriously love this. It is so reflective in the most healthy, natural way. It contains luminizing pearl pigments which make you look super radiant. For any oily girls like me, blot down with some translucent powder and you're good to go! 

My verdict is.. yes! I believe it can. I've never fed into claims like this before, but I'm so impressed with my results purely from doing my make-up! Hey, if someone can create a concealer that vanishes fine lines under the eyes.. hit me up!
