out, or your skin could look even scarier after Halloween. We’ve got 4
fab precautions to take to get your skin back to normal after the spooky
night is over.
1. Read the labels
Please, please, make sure you’re using makeup that is labeled
“non-comodogenic” (as in, won’t clog your pores) and “oil-free.” This is
also key for girlies with sensitive skin--you don’t want to irritate
anything or risk a bad reaction. Halloween is scary enough as it is!
2. Ditch last year’s makeup
It’s not the best idea to recycle the red lipstick from last year’s
Dracula costume. Make sure your face paint is fresh—no more than six
months old. Same goes with body paint. There’s no guarantee that
products will keep for more than 3-6 months, so don’t risk turning
Frankenstein-green overnight. Eek!
3. Don’t turn into a pumpkin!
Don’t skip the wash-off portion after your trick-or-treat run. Use
makeup remover wipes to gently rub away the evidence, and then follow
your normal skincare routine.
4. Sharing can be scary
We’re warning you—don’t share makeup! We get that sharing your goods is
Girl Code Rule #43, but in this case, we’re making an exception. Makeup
and body paint when shared can spread infections, bacteria and skin oils
between you and your buds. Ick. Make sure to keep the beauty products
to yourself—no horror stories tonight.
