Don’t let Halloween makeup ruin your skin
Halloween is probably an event that you had waited for the whole year. Donning your costume and putting on your makeup (the scarier and more garish, the better) are probably activities you may have planned for months. But did you realize that the dramatic makeup you use on this day can give your skin nightmares for a long time to come?
Special Halloween makeup can damage the skin as they contain more artificial dyes, perfumes, oils, and chemicals than regular makeup.
If you are sensitive to any of these materials, you may end up with an allergic reaction or an irritant contact dermatitis. Checking the ingredients list for any substances you are allergic to is a must. Never use old makeup that may have expired; Toss them out. Clean and moisturize your face and apply a quality foundation before putting on your makeup.
You can avoid trouble by choosing darker shades of your regular makeup brands instead of going for customized Halloween makeup. These measures will ensure that you have a safe, skin-healthy event.
