Spooktacular Skincare: Unmasking the Do's and Don'ts of Halloween
Embracing the Halloween spirit is all about getting into the festive groove, and there's no better time to let your creativity shine. Whether you're hosting a spooky soirée or simply hunkering down at home, don't be afraid to go all out with decorations, themed treats, eerie music, and your favorite fall candle to set the mood. While we're busy perfecting our costumes and indulging in sweet treats, it's easy to forget the importance of maintaining a skincare routine. In this guide, we'll discuss the Do's and Don'ts while enjoying all the tricks and treats Halloween has to offer.
Beware of Costume Makeup
One of the most exciting aspects of Halloween is dressing up in elaborate costumes. However, the heavy makeup often used for Halloween looks can wreak havoc on your skin. Times like these are most important for double cleansing to ensure there's no excess build-up that's clogging your pores. Our favorite thing to use as the first part of double cleansing is Éminence's Stone Crop Cleansing Oil. After this, go in with your main cleanser, then toner, apply any serums and finish off with a nourishing moisturizer.
Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate
The crisp fall air can leave your skin feeling dry and dehydrated. Before doing your Halloween look, make sure to keep your skin hydrated and nourished so you don't spook your skin when putting on costume makeup. Treating yourself to a facial once the new month is here will not only help to maintain hydration, but it will provide a deeper cleanse and target your specific skincare needs as we go into the even colder months.
Don't Scare Away Sunscreen
Even though Halloween falls in autumn, sun protection should still be a top priority. Wearing SPF daily, even when it's cloudy, is a proactive step in protecting your skin from harmful UV rays, maintaining its health, and ensuring a radiant and youthful complexion for years to come.
Skincare Habits To Ghost
Skipping SPF, over exfoliating, sleeping in your makeup, neglecting your neck, using a washcloth, and picking at your skin are all bad habits to leave behind indefinitely with this change in season.
This Halloween, don't let your skincare routine turn into a horror story. With a little extra care and attention, you can have the best of both worlds – indulging in spooky festivities and maintaining healthy, glowing skin. So, let's make this Halloween your best skin-treat ever!
