We have all learned about the negative effects cosmetics have on the environment and on ourselves. But no one has talked about the positive effects they have, besides some of the things that they do for us like, make us look younger, smell nice, keep us clean, keep our teeth clean, etc. make-up also helps psychologically and also boosts self-esteem of the people who wear it. A lot of women suffer from poor body image and wear make-up to make themselves look better, and it works, there is nothing wrong with that. With higher self-esteem women will have less anxiety and more confidence due to make-up use.
I think the use of make-up and being able to avoid the dangerous ingredients in them is something that women should be supported in. Below is a link to a list of common ingredients in the make-up that you should avoid.
