5 Ways To Care For Your Skin After Removing Halloween Makeup
By LILY RAINE
Leaving makeup on overnight can have a harmful effect on your skin, so if there’s one night to avoid sleeping with your makeup on, it’s Halloween. Dermatologist Erum Ilyas recommends using micellar water over makeup removal wipes because while they both break down waterproof makeup, she sees many more rashes from wipes usage.
Once you remove all your makeup, follow up with a gentle cleanser to ensure your skin is free from dirt, makeup, and bad oils. We recommend CeraVe’s Cream to Foam Cleanser because it contains ceramides, amino acids, and hyaluronic acid.
Toner is essential, especially on Halloween night because it’ll remove any leftover dirt and grime that didn’t get washed off. Toner is also known for its long-term effects of balancing the skin’s pH level and tightening pores.
It’s likely your skin will be dry after the previous steps, so it’s a great idea to apply a non-comedogenic moisturizer or hydrating night cream. Keeping your skin hydrated has long-term effects as it keeps the skin’s barrier hydrated and healthy, preventing wrinkles.
