‘Tis the season for gloss and glitter … and breakouts and rashes. Go ahead and sparkle, but mind your makeup curfew. If late nights give way to lazy night skincare routines, the effects will catch up with you in the form of clogged pores, dull texture from dead skin cell buildup, and breakouts.

Also, glitters and shimmering shadows can be irritants, so if you use them infrequently you may find that adding a little extra dazzle for an evening out gets you more than you bargained for. You may end up with watery eyes, itchiness and redness. Our advice? Let your clothes and accessories do the glittering and let your natural beauty shine through.      -Derm RF
