It’s time to start acting spooky and looking creepy. Yes, it’s Halloween all over again. With all those creepy outfits and even creepier use of makeup, you’re bound to have a blast. We hope you manage to enjoy Halloween to its fullest, look your creepiest best and wow people all around you. Not to be party poopers, but once Halloween is over, you need to get your skin back on track. Unfortunately that all that makeup, fun and candy will more than likely affect your skin, and not in a good way? It is important that you understand that most Halloween looks are not really designed with your skin in mind. Your normal makeup might be suitable for your skin and it might not cause much damage, but a vast majority of Halloween makeup is more than likely not so great for your skin. All that candy probably doesn’t help either! So how do you ensure that you take good care of your skin without having to compromise on your Halloween fun and dressing up? Well, it’s quite easy. Irrespective of what kind of costume you plan to wear this year and how much makeup you use, these Vine Vera tips should help you care for your skin post Halloween and ensure that it returns to normal.
The Preparatory Phase
The first and foremost thing that you need to do is to ensure that you prepare your skin for Halloween makeup application. This is very simple and quite similar to your regular skin care routine. All you need to do is to ensure that you cleanse, tone and moisturize your skin. The only difference is that you need to prime your skin before applying Halloween makeup as well.
The Application Phase
Now comes the fun part. As exciting as this stage might be, it is essential for you to choose your products carefully. The simplest solution is to try and play with the makeup that you already own. This is one of the safest options because your skin is quite comfortable with the makeup and it doesn’t damage your skin too much. We definitely don’t tend to imply that you shouldn’t use special effects. All we’re trying to say is that you should only use products that were designed to be used on your face. Anything else could prove to be quite irritating and harmful for the skin.
The After Party
Your skin may not feel so well after all the Halloween fun (makeup, costume, partying, and maybe some drinks). Many people find the day after Halloween their skin feels dry and dehydrated after all the revelry. Thus, it is extremely important to give your skin a proper treat so as to help it get back to its former self. You might be dog tired right after the party, so we advise postponing skin care until the next morning. However, this doesn’t give you the right to skip out on cleansing your skin before bed. Make sure that you thoroughly cleanse your skin and get rid of all traces of makeup before going to sleep. If possible, try to throw in a night moisturizer into the mix as well.
The Next Morning
After all that dancing and partying as well as all that makeup, it is now time to cajole and coax your skin into coming back to its former glory. The best way to do it is to give your skin a variety of pampering treatments such as facials or face masks and extra nourishment in the form of a Vine Vera skin care routine that includes cleansing, toning, exfoliating, serums and moisturizers.
