The One Makeup Product You Should Never Use On A Scab

Scabs are the absolute worst, and that couldn’t be truer than when they are on your face. Eeeek! The only good thing about them is that they are actually the start of the healing process for your skin. Scabs are actually a protective barrier between your old wound and the new skin forming underneath. That’s why it’s extremely important just to let your scab breathe so it can do its thing.

Applying foundation on top of a scab not only ruins the healing process but actually looks horrible. If you put foundation on skin while it’s in the process of healing itself, it will make the area look super crusty and flaky.

Avoid any mishaps by skipping the foundation for a few days and just going au naturel! This will allow for a quick recovery and you will back to beating your face in no time.

Don’t forget to check out: why you should never apply foundation directly onto bare skin and the one thing you should never do if you have eczema
