5 reasons to go bare-faced this summer

Ditching the makeup and letting your skin breathe seems to be all the rage right now. While we'll always love a great bold lip and rocking a fresh, dewy glow, summer seems like the perfect time to try out the latest beauty trend. Skeptical about abandoning your tried and true makeup routine? Here are five reasons why you shouldn't be! 

1. No harmful products
Some makeup products contain some not-so-great ingredients. Beware of applying chemicals, parabens and carcinogens on your face and body. As you probably know, some makeup can also clog your pores and lead to breakouts or irritation, especially if you have sensitive skin.

2. More fun in the sun
Your days are sure to be jam-packed with activities as you try take advantage of the beautiful weather and school-free days. Devote that extra hour to catching up on some beauty sleep, a good book or spending more time by the pool!

3. You learn to embrace yourself
We all know how it feels to look in the mirror and pick out every single blemish, freckle and dry patch. While pesky pimples are not fun, they don't last forever and (spoiler alert!) makeup won't do anything but hinder their healing. Plus, your peers will admire you for embracing and rocking your natural beauty.

4. No more melty makeup
The blazing summer sun will show *no* mercy on your foundation. If the heat itself doesn’t break everything down, the likelihood of sweating it all off or hopping in the pool and ending up with smudged mascara makes the act of application just not worth it.

5. Mo' money
Let’s be real, some makeup is *way* expensive! If you ditch the products, that means less splurging on lippies and more money to spend on fun music festivals and lunch dates with your crew.
