My morning routine is pretty simple. I shower, shave, brush my teeth, and smooth down my hair. As a man, nobody expects me to put on makeup. Yet for women, it is pretty much expected by society that they apply some makeup to enhance their beauty or cover up blemishes. Josephine Yurcaba tells us in an article on Simple Most that it doesn’t have to be that way. Women don’t have to give in to the expectations placed upon them. They can go without makeup if they choose.
Josephine shares some of the things she learned when we stopped wearing makeup.
- It’s a double standard that hurts women.
- It contributes to body image problems
- It’s very expensive
- Not wearing makeup helps you love yourself more
