Do you ever let your skin (face) just breathe?

Or is it always covered ... say, with makeup (or sunscreen, cream, etc.) during the day and then with product/moisturizer at night?

I do moisturize at night but sometimes feel it best to not put anything on it (makeup) during the day (only on the days I don't work I'd scare my coworkers otherwise!)

A facialist I was speaking with nearly had a heart attack when I mentioned this! Honestly, the less I do to my skin, the better it is.

  • I only wear makeup when I leave the house. I wash with a face soap everyday and on the days I go out use an astringent (sp). My face has been pimple free because of it. I don't use any moisturizer because I feel it leaves my face very oily and I have really oily skin.

  • Even though I rarely wear much makeup, I almost always put on a moisturizer with SPF 15 in the morning, and a sunscreen-free moisturizer after washing my face for bed. Hmmmm....

  • I hate covering my skin on my face.. always feels like i am wearing a mask. I'll stick lotion on after a sunburn and thats about it.. I wear eye makeup and chapstick. I'll have baby skin until I'm old!

  • I guess mine never breathes. I never go without full makeup, even when I am sick. I just feel better with it on. I don't sleep in it, just a good moisturizer.

  • I don't wear makeup but I use facial moisturizer.

    My skin feels better with the moisturizer than without.
