Tips to Help Your Skin Survive Halloween
There are several tips that you should follow to protect your skin from harm when using Halloween makeup.
Test the Makeup First
Unfortunately, there are many cases where individuals experience serious allergic reactions to Halloween makeup. Performing a test can help to ensure you are not one of them. Before applying makeup to your face, perform a test on your wrist or the inside of your elbow. This can help to ensure that the makeup can safely be used on your face.
Apply a Protective Layer
Before applying Halloween makeup to your face, you should apply a thin layer of petroleum jelly to the areas where you are going to apply the makeup. This will work as a layer of protection between your skin and the makeup. It can also help you to take the makeup off much easier when it comes time to do so.
After you finish your events for the evening, be sure to remove the makeup. You do not want to sleep with Halloween makeup as it can clog the pores on your face, dry out your skin, and cause damage. Instead, use a warm, wet towel to remove the makeup. Try to avoid scrubbing the skin as this area tends to be very sensitive, and harsh cleaning can cause damage. It can help to apply an overnight moisturizer to your face after removing the products. If you notice any damage to your skin as a result of the makeup, be sure to schedule an appointment with a dermatologist to determine the problem and find the right solution.
