Your Poor Pores! Skincare Tips for After Halloween

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!

 

10 Things You Probably Didn’t Know About Hair

1. Hair is made up mostly of keratin, the same protein animals’ horns, hooves, claws, feathers, and beaks Model with long hair. Waves Curls Hairstyle. Hair Salon. Updo. Fare made of.

2. When wet, a healthy strand of hair can stretch an additional 30% of its original length.

3. Hair grows slightly faster in warm weather, because heat stimulates circulation and encourages hair growth.

4. All hair is dead, with the exception of the hair that’s still inside the epidermis of your scalp.

5. Hair contains information about everything that has ever been in your bloodstream, including drugs, and is one of the most commonly used types of forensic evidence.

6. The only thing about you that can’t be identified by your hair is your gender—men’s hair and women’s hair are identical in structure.

7. Black is the most common hair color. Red is the rarest and only exists in about 1 percent of the world’s population, with blonde hair found in 2 percent.

8. As soon as a hair is plucked from its follicle, a new one begins to grow.

9. Hair is 50 percent carbon, 21 percent oxygen, 17 percent nitrogen, 6 percent hydrogen, and 5 percent sulphur.

10. Hair can grow anywhere on the human body with the exception of the palms of hands, soles of feet, eyelids, lips, and mucous membranes.

11. Goosebumps from cold or fear are the result of hair follicles contracting, causing the hair and surrounding skin to bunch up.

12. The average number of hair strands varies by natural color, with blondes having the most and redheads having the fewest.

13. The scientific term for split ends is “trichoptilosis.”

14. Aside from bone marrow, hair is the fastest growing tissue in the body.

15. Balding only begins to become visible once you’ve lost over 50 percent of the hairs from your scalp.

16. At any given time, 90 percent of the hairs in your scalp are growing, while the other 10 percent are resting.

17. A single hair has a lifespan of about five years.

18. Hair acts as a layer of thermally insulating protection for our heads, which lack the insulation that fat provides for the rest of our bodies.

19. Eighty percent of Americans wash their hair twice a day.

20. Each strand of hair can support up to 100 grams in weight. Multiply that by the average 100,000 to 150,000 strands on each head, and your entire head of hair could support the weight equivalent to two elephants.

“MSC demonstrated they are one of the leaders in the county when it comes to proper sanitation,” Alan Muphy, President of BlueCoBrands, said. He presented the award.

“Receiving the Sapphire award is such an honor. Our Woodbury school manager, Josh Luhmann-Woodbury, has worked very diligently with our students on safety and sanitation. Our students’ dedication to keeping our campus clean and our clients safe is to be commended,” said campus director, Jill Hocking.

20161116_msc_sapphire-award_14Several criteria were taken into account when selecting winners for this award which include, the number of students certified, school size/type, certification type, school program participation length, and general application.
“Completing the barbicide online learning course sets MSC students ahead of other cosmetology students, by ensuring that all of its students are fully prepared with the knowledge needed to be successful in the hair industry. The number one key to their success in the salon will start with their sanitation and disinfestation standards,” Lumann-Woodbury said.

“Nothing is more important in cosmetology school than education about proper infection control, and learning about the risks of dangerous pathogens. While it may not be the most glamorous thing taught at school, infection control can make or break a professionals’ career,” according to Barbicide.

MSC will receive an optional onsite training along with the award.
