Asalamu-alaykum, I've read from this site that it is not allowed to wear make-up becasue it takes away the porpuse of the hijab, but I wondered if skin-care does the same? Say you don't like pimpled or seemingly just want clear skin, would it be considered haram because of how it might add to your beauty and cause attention? Thanks.
The way you put it , it sounds like Make-Up and Skin-Care are the same thing with different names.
I am not a woman so I will try to answer this question to the best of my knowledge.
But from the way I understand it, skin care is supposed to take care of your skin ;
Prevent and cure pimples
Prevent and cure rashes, wounds etc. .
Moisten the skin. ...
The above examples do not serve to beautify you but to maintain your health, so I'd say they are permissible.
BUT make up is obviously Haram
Allah knows best
PS : I hope that the skin care product you are using is Halal ( NO PIG ADDED )
