"Spotted-Face" Beauties

Actors and models lead unique lives. They face the spot light of fans and paparazzi who scrutinize their every move on screen and magazines. No other professions require the same dedication to appearance. Sadly, the celebrity lifestyle, which includes the constant application and removal of makeup, the harsh effects of stage lighting and a high level of stress, can take its toll on skin. This especially holds true for actresses and female models. However, makeup and stress plays havoc on all of us who love cosmetics.
Most damaging of all is the constant application and removal of foundation, eye shadow, blusher, and a whole bucket load of cosmetics. Both makeup (with its colored salts and chemical dyes) and makeup removers (which remove the protective acid mantle) are harsh on the skin. Actors and models need to quickly change makeup between photos and scenes. And many of us who don't live under the spotlight still like to change our makeup after work before going out for an evening of festivities.
This requires that we apply, remove and re-apply many coats in quick succession. Other times, actresses wear heavy foundation for hours at a stretch before they strip away the pasty gook with a makeup remover at the end of the day.
Whatever the circumstances, the frequent application and removal of makeup make the skin more susceptible to the development of skin damage, warts, moles, sun damage, and skin lesions. It is therefore essential for actresses, models, and all of us who adore our makeup to learn how to properly protect and care for our skin.

  1. I hadn't thought of it, but I bet you're right that it puts a lot of wear and tear on their skin. My sister-in-law has always been so good about moisturizing her skin, and she's in her mid-50's now and still has beautiful skin!

    Thanks for the post!

  2. Hi Deanna! Best wishes on your adventure around the country! I am very, very interested in following you when your cooking blog goes live. Please let us all know right away. I'm sure I'm not the only one who is waiting!

  3. My husband is an actor, and he's always bemoaning the heavy make-up. He does theater, and they have a trick where they put a layer of cream underneath the make-up, so it's easier to take off.

  4. thanks for the info! its true when you put it that way, so much amounts of rubbing for that stubborn mascara!
