Halloween Skin Care Guide Verona New Jersey NJ
Dressing Up for Halloween? Take a Look at this Skin Care Guide for Tips on Avoiding Breakouts and Rashes
With Halloween approaching, many of us are getting ready to disguise ourselves behind beautiful (or scary) Halloween costumes. To effectively look the part, a lot of costumes require the use of heavy makeup. Before slathering on Halloween makeup or digging into those candy bowls, it’s important to be aware that getting too carried away with chocolate and sugar can have a detrimental effect on your skin. Additionally, wearing poor quality makeup with your costume can stimulate acne, skin irritation, and possibly even wrinkles.
This Halloween Skin Care Guide can help you maintain a healthy glow after Halloween.
Moisturize your skin:
It’s so important to make sure your skin is completely moisturized before applying any makeup for Halloween, especially because it tends to be a lot heavier than other types of makeup. Not only will moisturizing help your skin stay hydrated, but it will also help rejuvenate your appearance and help your costume makeup last longer. We offer several skin care products at the practice of Dr. Paul LoVerme that can be beneficial to use before applying your makeup this Halloween.
Use High Quality Makeup:
Because you may never wear your Halloween costume more than once, it can be tempting to buy inexpensive Halloween makeup for your costume. However, lower quality makeup is often composed of ingredients that can damage your skin. You might want to consider buying organic makeup kits which often contain ingredients that are less harmful to the skin. This makeup may be a little more costly, but will be worth it in the end.
Don’t Go to Bed Wearing Makeup:
There are a number of reasons to remove your Halloween makeup before going to bed, other than the fact that it can stain your pillowcases. If you leave makeup on for too long, it can suffocate your pores and cause breakouts. Make sure to have your facial cleanser ready when you get home so you don’t have to worry about waking up with dry, itchy skin in the morning.
Cut Down on the Sweets – or Focus on the Dark Chocolate:
Even though most types of candy aren’t good for your skin, there are some options that are more skin-friendly. Next time you stick your hand in the candy bowl, try and pick out dark chocolate, which is lower in sugar and packed with antioxidants.
In addition to offering advanced skin care products, our practice offers injectable dermal fillers such as BOTOX® Cosmetic, Juvéderm® and ArteFill® that can help you achieve beautiful results in time for this holiday season.
