Beauty or beast? Halloween tips ‘n tricks for horror-free skin

You don’t have to be Heidi Klum to slap on some face paint for a seriously fun Halloween party. After all, what’s not to like about letting your hair down and being someone else for an entire night? But the morning after may not be so much fun, when you wake up to clogged pores and acne.

So before you try you hand at that cheap Halloween makeup, or have another piece of candy (that’s so hard to resist!), read our tips on how to avoid a skin scare when it’s time to clear away the cobwebs.

  1. Buy the right make-up: Yes, we know part of the Halloween fun is throwing on that cheap makeup. But this cheap makeup will, more often than not, clog your pores and cause your skin to break out the next day. Instead, go for an organic face paint kit that will allow your skin to breathe.

  2. Prep with moisturizer: The right moisturizer will keep your skin hydrated and fresh and keep your skin from drying out from the harsh chemicals you’re applying to it. Another side benefit is that will also help you easily apply makeup and help give it a finished look. Hylunia’s Super Moisturizing Facial Day Lotion is a customer favorite and even contains pumpkin seed peptide to keep you in the Halloween spirit!
  3. Wash off your makeup before going to bed: We can’t stress this enough – never go to bed without removing all trace of your makeup first. Heavy costume makeup is especially known to clog your pores, causing breakouts the next day. This makeup can also often contain harsh chemicals and preservatives that are bad for your skin, so why leave it on longer than necessary? The night is the time when your skin repairs itself, and it can’t do that if it is still covered by a heavy layer of toxic makeup.

    And in case you’re wondering, Hylunia’s bestselling Salicylic Facial Cleansing Gel is just the right cleanser to rid your skin of makeup, acne, excess oil and blackheads.

Last, we’re just as susceptible as you to candy in all its shapes and colors, but this year we’re determined to stick with the dark chocolate kind with nuts – good for our heart, with lots of protein!
