Some love to put on makeup when going out whereas some women's job demands them to wear makeup at work. There is nothing bad in doing makeup but in the times of coronavirus, it is better to avoid makeup if you are wearing a mask. Dr. Sachin Dhawan, Dermatologist at Fortis Hospital, Gurugram explains why you must not wear makeup and face mask together. According to Dr. Dhawan, when you wear a mask over makeup, the particles of makeup get stick to the mask which is not a good idea. Also, as moisture gets trapped inside the mask, it makes the makeup smudge after some time. You wouldn't want to look like a ghost after removing your mask, right? Therefore, it is better to not club these two together.  Also, the combination of moisture and makeup particles make the perfect breeding ground for bacteria and fungus. this may cause skin allergies and infections. Therefore, Dr. Dhwana suggests removing the mask when not necessary to use and use smudge-proof makeup to last longer.
