Halloween is just around the corner, which means you probably have your costume picked out and have stocked up on candy. While this is a very fun time of year, the truth is that Halloween can often take an incredible toll on your skin, from the makeup you use to how long you are out of the house and whether or not you consume any adult beverages. The night should be a time for you to enjoy the company of your friends and the feeling in the air, but that doesn't mean you want to come home to skin that is dried out or covered in blemishes.
Here are a few tricks for preventing post-Halloween skin damage:
- Avoid cheap products: One of the worst things you can do is buy makeup that is not made from high-quality products. While you certainly don't want to break the bank on your Halloween costume, using makeup that is subpar will end up hurting your skin, which can end up costing you more in the long run.
- Moisturize your skin: Before you put the makeup on, be sure to moisturize your skin. Not only will this keep your skin looking and feeling great, the moisturizer will act as a barrier between your skin and any potentially harmful effects from the makeup.
- Wash your face: No matter what time you end up going to bed, it is so important that you wash your face just as you would any other night. If you leave the makeup on your skin overnight, you will risk clogging up your pores, which can result in acne and other blemishes forming.
