i wanna stop using makeup because
whenever i would wear makeup i wouldn't notice how i'd literally cake it on and put too much.
i was so obsessed on concealing every imperfection which is a lot because i have acne-prone, oily, and scarring skin that i wouldn't notice how thick and fake it looked.
plus, i'd splurge on makeup, but not skincare.
i tried a bunch of different stuff like cleaning your devices/linen, birth control, dermas, skin clinics, a lot of different skincare products, my diet (i'm vegan), hydrating (you should still do this though KEK), etc~ but nothing worked until i bought a set of skincare products that actually worked on my skin. i think you really just have to try different stuff until you find the right ones for your skin, anon. i too believe that in the long run makeup will ruin your skin especially if you use it everyday and it might make your skin age badly so it's better to start early.
