The Foundation Free Week Challenge

Our skin is the largest organ on our body and one that the beauty industry spends billions of pounds a year on marketing products that will help us achieve 'better-looking skin'. Foundation is one of the key products in many women's makeup bags and promises to help cover our imperfections, give skin a flawless finish and even out those areas we might not like.

Wearing a whole lotta foundation here...
I've been wearing foundation daily for many years now and in that time I've started to wonder how it's affecting my skin. Before it became a must-have product for me, I'd happily prance around bare-faced, just relying on a bit of eye makeup and a touch of under-eye concealer on a daily basis. Looking back on old photos has reveal super clear, bright looking skin that quite honestly didn't need any foundation to make it look better and that holy grail is something I'd pay seriously good money to get again.

So I'm setting myself a challenge to go foundation free for one week and see if it makes a difference. I'll still be wearing eye makeup as I'm REALLY not ready to go completely makeup free (and I don't want to scare anyone), but I'll be staying away from all base products for a week. No doubt the initial days will be a bit weird, so I'm weaning myself off at the moment by using tinted moisturiser for a few days before the big challenge gets started, and then that will be it for a while. 

I'll report back on my experiment at the end of the week, but I'd love to see if any of you want to join me and see if going foundation-free for a week makes any positive/negative changes to your skin. 

How would you feel about binning your foundation for a week?
