7 Ways to Pamper Your Skin After HalloweenOctober 26, 2023
If you’re a Halloween enthusiast, you likely already have your costume(s) planned from head to toe, down to the elaborate makeup look you’ve bookmarked on Insta. But have you prepared your post-Halloween skincare routine as well? If not, we’re here to help. Ahead, find seven ways to show your skin some extra care after wearing Halloween makeup, from double cleansing to overnight masking.
Use a Micellar Water
Start your double-cleansing routine with a micellar water specifically designed to break down waterproof makeup. We like the Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water All-in-1 Cleanser & Waterproof Makeup Remover, which features dirt-encapsulating micelles to capture makeup and grime without any harsh rubbing at your skin or eyes.
Follow With a Cleanser
To make sure all your makeup is wiped away, follow the micellar water with a richly foaming cleanser. The CeraVe Hydrating Foaming Oil Cleanser, which eliminates leftover dirt and makeup without stripping the skin thanks to a blend of ceramides, hyaluronic acid, squalane and triglycerides.
Don’t Forget to Apply TonerAfter cleansing, a toner is perfect for balancing your skin’s pH levels and providing a smooth, nourishing base before you moisturize. The Thayers Milky Hydrating Face Toner with Snow Mushroom and Hyaluronic Acid removes impurities and rehydrates your skin.
Moisturize With a Rich Night Cream
Wake up with radiant, refreshed skin when you apply a night cream that doubles as a nourishing overnight mask. We recommend the Vichy Aqualia Thermal Night Spa, which contains hyaluronic acid to attract moisture to the skin, as well as soothing volcanic water.
Show Your Eyes Some Love
Chances are your Halloween look included some form of a statement eye makeup moment. Whether you rocked a super thick wing or went all out with zombie makeup, there’s no doubt the delicate skin surrounding your eyes could use some extra attention. To help de-puff and restore this sensitive area of the skin, try the L'Oréal Revitalift Derm Intensives 2.5% Hyaluronic Acid + Caffeine Eye Serum.
Top With a Facial OilA facial oil is a great way to lock in moisture, especially if you have dry skin. Look for a lightweight formula with botanical oils, such as the Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate Face Oil. It contains calming lavender oil and squalane to help soften skin.
Hydrate Your Lips
Multiple coats of lipstick, especially if it’s a matte formula, necessitates a dose of hefty moisture the next day. We love the La Roche-Posay Cicaplast Lips Hydration Restore Lip Balm, a non-greasy barrier repair formula.
