Halloween Can Be Scary on Your Skin

Posted by Bree Bruce

It's Halloween time! And it's so much fun, right? There's candy everywhere, fun parties to attend late in to the night that have themed cocktails and yummy food you probably don't normally indulge in, and an excuse to be super daring with costume makeup. We love it all! But to our skin these things can seem more like tricks than treats. A lack of sleep, clogged pores, and your body desperately trying to process sugary foods will all show on your skin, and in a terrifying way. So we wanted to share some of our favorite products and tricks to prevent any scary skin freak outs.

Always wash your face (dual cleanse!) before going to sleep. This may seem like a no brainer, but when it's late and you're tired and maybe a little intoxicated, it's easy to just go home and crash. But your skin will pay for it. On top of potential break outs, this can cause stress to your skin and dullness to your complexion.

Depending on the type of makeup and the state of our skin at the moment our first step to cleansing is either One Love Organics Vitamin B Enzyme Cleansing Oil or One Love Organics Skin Savior.

For Halloween looks where your entire face is made up with costume makeup and it is really caked on you may find that the Vitamin B Cleansing Oil is better up to the task of breaking down all that goop. The oil glides across your skin making it super easy to massage in and break down your makeup. It will repair your skins moisture level as well as balance its pHs levels - something that your skin will most definitely need after rocking all that makeup. This non-stripping, clean-rinsing formula features papain, a fruit enzyme that helps to exfoliate and soften, and a natural Vitamin B complex to detoxify and tone. While this product is clean-rinsing, as mentioned, we find that removing it with a hot wet wash cloth works miracles.

For skin that is a little more on the irritated or dry side, we recommend the Skin Savior. This multi-tasking wonder balm will remove dirt and makeup while moisturizing and illuminating your skin. For this too we prefer to remove it with a hot wet wash cloth.

No matter which product we use first we like to follow it up by cleansing with Easy Does It Foaming Cleanser. Easy Does It lathers into a soothing, non-drying foam that cleans, softens and helps to protect the face. Depending on what type of exfoliation we are looking for we will do this second step with a Cleansing Sponge, or, for an extra deep clean, we will add a sprinkle of Brand New Day Microderma Scrub + Mask to our face while cleansing

It's also important to take extra care and indulge in treatments. You're putting your skin through stress that it doesn't normally see so it is important to pamper it a little extra as well. So here's the how-to on a few of our favorite pampering treatments from One Love Organics:
