Halloween Makeup Tips From Your Dermatologist


Halloween is just around the corner… and if you’re like me, planning your costume is almost as fun as the party itself! Deciding between different characters and outfits can be an entertaining challenge, and you need to make sure you consider the potential damage that all that makeup could do to your skin. So, here are a few Halloween makeup tips from your dermatologist so that you don’t wake up the next day with a scary breakout on your face! 



Pre-Treat Your Skin  

Applying a lot of makeup for Halloween can really clog up your pores. Start now by treating your skin with acne defying cleansers, or come down and get one of our excellent pumpkin spice or purifying acne facials. The healthier your skin is before the main event, the better it can recover afterwards.  


Choose The Right Makeup 

If you’re particularly susceptible to acne and blemishes, it’s critical to get the right products to decorate your face. Most makeup from costume shops is heavier, thicker and contains artificial colors, fragrances, and other additives. A safer bet is to check out our mineral makeup from Jane Iredale – it’s much safer and easier on your skin.



Add A Layer Of Moisturizer 

It’s a good idea to add some moisturizer to your face before you turn into a vampire, zombie, or whatever scary creature you decided on. This creates a small barrier between your face and heavy makeup you’re likely to have on. We here at Werschler Aesthetics have some great products for you, come down and we’ll help guide you to a great moisturizer that will not clog your pores. 



Make Sure You Clean Up At The End Of The Night

We can’t emphasize this one enough. At the end of night, no matter how many crafty cosmos or wicked whiskeys you have, make sure you get all that makeup off before you hit the hay! Use a quality cleanser and if you can, use an exfoliating scrub to really open your pores up before bed.
