Halloween Makeup Removal - The Do's and Don’ts

Halloween Makeup Removal - The Do's and Don’ts

As the spooky evening winds down, all you can think about is some warm tea and comfy pj’s. Don’t neglect to take off your Halloween makeup properly! You and your skin deserve a proper makeup meltdown after a long night of - trick or treating - or partying. 

Don’t: Rely only on makeup wipes

Makeup wipes may appear to take off your thick layer of makeup, but they generally do not do a good job of cleaning out all the excess gunk left in your skin. 

Do: Cleanse with an appropriate cleanser.

We recommend our Face Foam + Aloe Milk Cleanser duo to help dig deep into your pores and pull out any leftover makeup. Face Foam will provide a gentle natural exfoliation while the Aloe Milk will help to soothe your skin from any unwanted irritation caused by your makeup. It’s also good to keep in mind that you don’t need to scrub your skin too harshly, as this cleanser duo will help melt down your makeup without having to be rough with your precious skin. - Give yourself a gentle massage! 

Don’t: Use scalding hot water!

Hot water will strip your skin's natural oils and actually leave it feeling much more dry. Even though the chilly weather leaves you gasping for heated water, try to opt out for cozy bunny slippers instead. Let your skin keep it’s beautiful oils! 

Do: Wash with luke-warm water.

Opt-out for the hot, opt-in for the luke-warm. This way you can cleanse effectively, without stripping your skin too bare. Face Foam's pH balancing ingredients, like apple cider vinegar, can help your skin feel its healthiest! Combined with our Bamboo Charcoal Sponge - you won't even miss the hot water!

Don’t: Leave Your Skin Hangin'

Remember that the cooler weather also means drier skin. This is especially true after a night out, with a full face of spooky makeup on! Don’t just leave your skin bare or hung out to dry - literally. 

Do: Tone and Hydrate. 

Don’t forget to rebalance your skins pH with our Face Food Mineral Mist Spray - not only will you feel refreshed, it will also reset your skin’s balance to rehydrate. Face Food works best with Fullmoon Serum to absorb nutrients and minerals deep into your skin, helping it feel buoyant and hydrated. 

Don’t: Forget to Moisturize

What’s a cake without it’s icing (what's your face without moisturizer)? - you tell me!

Do: Moisturize

Put on a thick layer of uber moisturizing cream, such as our Berry Rich Cream. Not only does this cream double as a face + eye cream (ie. can be used all over your face in one step), it will also help your skin lock in moisture, and rejuvenate it overnight. You will feel Berry fresh the morning after!


Now you have all that candy to deal with - watch out for that sugar ! ;)
