For me, a whole lot! The fact that I am able to share with you all my bare, make up free and Photoshop free face is a huge deal. I am extremely insecure of my uneven skin tone which includes blotchiness, dark spots and hyper pigmentation.
I have written about it before (here) most recently I even shared on my YouTube channel how I wasn't ready to expose myself in that way. But with everything I have let go off this week letting go of hiding behind make up and letting go of the insecurity my skin brings me no longer seemed so scary.
It is not that I do not feel beautiful without makeup but I most certainly feel insecure about my skin because we are taught that clean clear, smooth and blemish free skin is what we should have. I only use make up for special occasion and events so day to day I am walking around bare faced. Most times I forget that I have dark spots, walk around thinking I am cute and then when I see a mirror its like "oh no I wonder what people where thinking". Since the only place I have control of "what people are thinking" is online I only post pics with makeup or a filter.
However, today I take the Face-Off Challenge using Neutrogena® Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes, which are gentle and easy to use. Using makeup can cause clogged pores and breakouts. But just one towelette removes 99.3% of all traces of dirt, oil, and makeup to reveal clean, fresh skin. Not only will I take the white towel test but also the challenge of facing my insecurity and the test of my confidence.
Join me in the Face-Off Challenge by uploading you own pictures, be sure to tag them with #NeutrogenaRostroLimpio. The wipes are ultra soft cloths that gently and quickly dissolve all traces of make-up, leaving skin thoroughly clean, without heavy residue. They remove make-up with just one easy step and are gentle enough to use around the delicate eye area, safe even for contact lens wearers. And in my case were even a toll to remove my insecurity.
2. Use the Neutrogena® Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes, wash your face with a daily cleanser and dry your face with the white towel that was sent to you.
3. White Towel Test: Take a picture of your clean face next to a white towel (your towel should still be white because your face is clean after using the towelettes.)
