Don’t let the horror of Halloween wreak havoc on your skin. Face paint and facial prosthetics are a great way to complete your Halloween costume, but it’s essential to choose the right products and remove your spooky makeup at the end of the night. Costume makeup is made to stick, so you will look great even when you sweat. Whether you’re dressing as “IT” or going for a haunted look, Halloween makeup has a thicker consistency, which means these products are going to stay on your skin and live within your pores for far longer than October 31st.
Our plastic surgeon in Boca Raton has a few tips to keep your skin clear and healthy regardless of your costume, including:
- Wash your face with a powerful product such as the REVEAL Foaming Cleanser before you apply Halloween makeup. This product is gentle on your skin but provides thorough makeup removal, helping skin impurities and leaving you with a refreshed, glowing complexion.
- Use a skin care product that acts as a protective barrier for your skin, so you can look scary without risking acne breakouts, redness, and inflammation. Dr. Bogue recommends our Essential Lipids, which works for all skin types, treats dry skin, and protects the sensitive outer layer of your skin. This product has an added benefit of reducing fine lines and wrinkles.
- Remove your makeup as soon as you get home. It’s never a good idea to sleep in your makeup. The best thing about the REVEAL foaming cleanser is that it’s gentle on your skin but removes makeup extremely well. Remember not to scrub your skin. If you have acne prone skin and clogged pores (which can worsen with oil-based, heavy Halloween products), the REVEAL Clear Skin could be the perfect option for you. It’s a Sulfur and Zinc mask proven to clear pores and reduce inflammation nearly overnight.
Once you’ve entirely removed your costume makeup, use a moisturizing product such as RESTORE the Night to hydrate your skin and stimulate wrinkle reduction.
