Why we’d rather get naked than be seen without makeup on

If celebrities like Mila, Miley, and Katy aren't afraid to step out in the spotlight fresh-faced (if we can call it that) than we shouldn't be either. 

Unfortunately this bravery rarely stretches to the first time your partner sees you without make up on, a sadly inevitable event.

But for most of us it is usually (and thankfully) an anticlimactic moment: we build it up and up in our heads and then our partners usually don’t even notice. Phew!

But it is good to know that we are not all alone in feeling like this. A survey was carried out by the skincare team at The Loop in Dublin and Cork airports which confirmed our fears.

They found that one in five women wait three months before daring to reveal their make-up free faces to their partners.

Surprisingly, they also found that we are far more likely to reveal our naked bodies to our significant others than our bare faces. Almost half of the respondents said that they would ditch the clothes after a month while 16 percent said they would do so immediately.

The survey also found out which nation Irish women are the most jealous of when it comes to skincare and complexions. The answer was France, with three out of five dubbing them as their ‘skin idols’.

A huge 70 percent of respondents said that the gently sun-kissed complexion was their favourite skin tone while 22 percent went for the pale and interesting look. Overdoing your tan is definitely out with a low three percent opting for the perma-tan look.

The Loop in Terminal 1 of Dublin Airport has just unveiled its new beauty hall and it holds loads of our favourite brands including Estee Lauder, Lancome and Elizabeth Arden.
