Your Poor Pores! Skincare Tips for After Halloween

Posted by on October 27, 2016

It’s Nov. 1, and you won the prize “Best Costume” as a sexy zombie at the hottest Halloween party last night! Your makeup was on point with piles of paint, fake blood and the longest and lushest falsies at the party! Since a lot of costume makeup is formulated differently than everyday cosmetics, your skin is likely going to need a detox. Your poor pores!

Here are some tips for your skin when it comes to Halloween. Vampire Halloween Woman portrait. Beauty Sexy Vampire Girl with

  1. Again, don’t forget to use a moisturizer. You had a million products on your face and you did a deep clean to remove it. Time to give your skin a hydrating drink!
  2. Get every last drop of makeup off your face once the night is over. No going to sleep with those false lashes either! Use a cold cream or oil-based formula first, rinse and repeat until every trace is gone. Then wash your face with your usual face wash and end with a light-weight moisturizer.
  3. Don’t have a facial or exfoliate your skin the morning of Halloween or the day before. You don’t want your fresh, open pores to get clogged with face paint.
  4. Exfoliate your skin the next day. You may also want to do a purifying clay mask to avoid breakouts.
  5. Makeup, cleansers and adult beverages are dehydrating so be sure to drink plenty of water to flush away toxins and battle inflammation.
  6. Give your face a break from makeup the day after Halloween. It needs time to breathe after all of that fun!
