We put on makeup for a variety of reasons. Some of us enjoy experimenting with different looks. Others need to put on their ‘face’ before they can feel themselves. And then there are women who simply love the way they look with make-up.
Not everyone is a fan of makeup though. Some think it makes women seem superficial – or even hiding their true selves. Or that it’s shallow to be obsessed with new shades of lipstick or the latest makeup trends.
But did you know that makeup can actually be good for your mental health? While it’s always best to be comfortable in your own skin, makeup can also do wonders for your mental wellbeing.
This World Mental Health Day (10 October), we delve into how make-up could help to boost not just the way you look but your mental health too.
