Halloween is all about the effort. You can’t turn up to that house party looking as if you haven’t tried, so you’ve gotta go all out. But we hear you when you say you’re worried about the aftermath. From skin that’s dyed green with face paint to the curse of lingering glitter, it can be a real challenge to remove Halloween makeup… and sometimes it can totally put you off going the whole hog. Well, say bye-bye to that excuse because our routine will help you get rid of everything with ease AND nourish your skin in the process…
Get the glitter and gore OFF
Oil is the best thing you can use to break down heavy makeup – and it even removes glitter. Use your fingers to rub Superdrug Coconut Oil over your skin and loosen everything up. Be liberal with it – the more, the better. Then dampen a cotton pad and wipe from the centre of your face outwards, using strong strokes to get everything off. Repeat the process anywhere else you need – neck, chest, arms…
You may think the last thing you’ll want to do after a party is come home and focus on skincare, but you’ve gotta if you don’t want your skin to suffer. Once you’ve got rid of what you can with coconut oil, wash your face with Simple X Little Mix Moisturising Facial Wash. This nourishing rinse will get rid of oils, dirt and impurities, ensuring a thorough cleanse – perfect if you’ve been wearing panto-worthy makeup. Since we put our skin through a lot at this time of year, it’s best to double-cleanse. Get rid of any stubborn leftovers with Simple X Little Mix Micellar Cleansing Water.
Restore and revitalise
It’s not just your feet that feel the burn after partying the night away – your skin needs a lil extra loving, too. Curb dehydrated, uneven skin with B. Confident Day Cream. With hyaluronic acid and niacinamide, it will moisturise deep down, control blemishes and boost radiance – just what your skin needs after a big night out. For an extra hit of hydration, apply a Botanical Lab Rose Overnight Hydrating Mask before you snuggle up in bed for some serious in-sleep restoration.
