Halloween Skincare Do’s and Don’ts

Posted on October 31, 2016 by Ella Fedonenko

Let’s face it: Halloween may be fun, but it certainly isn’t easy on your skin. Indulging in sugary treats and candy, staying up late into the night to trick-or-treat or going to that Halloween party, and applying heavy costume makeup can be taxing on your skin. Follow these easy skin rejuvenating tips to keep your skin beautiful this Halloween.

Halloween Do: Priming Your Skin
Compared to your everyday makeup, costume makeup is often heavy and could cause breakouts. Protect your skin by applying a primer, and use a dab of acne gel to keep any current pimples in check.

Halloween Don’t: Exfoliating Before Applying Makeup
While regular exfoliation is important for maintaining a smooth and glowing complexion, it’s probably best to skip using any scrubs or peels on Halloween. Exfoliating leaves your skin a little more sensitive than usual, so this is one beauty treatment you may want to save for November 1st.

Halloween Don’t: Applying Anything to Your Face That Isn’t Intended for Skin
As the most sensitive part of the body, the skin on your face must be treated gently. Things that aren’t intended to be applied to your face—such as glue or paint—are best avoided this Halloween.

Halloween Do: Take It Off the Right Way
Experts recommend using a 3-step cleansing process to remove Halloween makeup: cold cream followed by regular makeup remover and a gentle, pH-balanced cleanser. Resistant adhesives and glues can be removed using baby oil or argan oil.

Halloween Do: Opt for a Post-Halloween Skin Rejuvenation Treatment
Despite our best efforts, that cute Halloween makeup can often leave behind acne and irritated skin. A laser skin rejuvenation treatment can be just the thing to get your skin glowing again. This treatment uses the latest technology to fight fine lines, wrinkles, acne, and dull skin, with no major downtime involved.
