If your skin needs a little extra love this winter, come and see us at Forever Young Body Clinic. We offer the best facials in Denver!
The winter usually takes a toll on the skin. Wind, dirt and chilling temperatures call impact the skin in negative ways. Do not worry though because we have some tips that can change the way you combat the winter weather when it comes to your skin.
- Cover your face. When you are out and about, be sure to keep your face covered up. Use a warm and cozy scarf to protect your face from chilling winds. This will work wonders for keeping your skin from drying out.
- Moisturize more. Invest in a thick moisturizer. Be sure to moisturize at least twice a day; once in the morning and once at night. Keeping a layer of moisture on your skin at all times will greatly decrease the rate at which your skin dries out.
- Don’t over wash. Over-washing your face can lead to extra dry skin by stripping away the moisture. Although washing your face is necessary, be sure to keep it at a minimum. Washing your face at the end of the day is the best way to go.
If your skin could use some extra love, be sure to stop in and visit us! We offer some amazing facials that are sure to leave your skin rejuvenated and replenished. Why wait any longer to improve your skin and fight off dryness?

After all the candy has been eaten and the last party has come to an end, shift your focus to costume makeup clean up. Although Halloween is the perfect opportunity to get creative with your makeup, it often causes skin irritation. Most costume makeup contains latex, which is designed to be on your face for only short periods of time. Costume makeup kept on any longer than Halloween night will more than likely clog pores, cause allergic reactions and even inflame your skin and eyelids. In order to keep your skin unharmed during the Halloween fun, follow these before and after care steps!
Before Touching Your Face
Whatever you use for makeup application should be extremely clean. You should be cleaning brushes, beauty blenders and sponges frequently in generaly, but especially before applying thick, costume makeup. Next, ensure the area in which you are doing your makeup is also clean. If you haven’t identified it yet, the name of the game is CLEANLINESS! If you don’t have brush cleanser, use warm water. It is important to not cross contaminate the brushes. Rinse each brush one at a time. Once cleaned, reshape the wet bristles if need be then set them out to dry on a towel. For optimal results, clean brushes 24 hours in advance.
Face Prep and Post-Wash
Before any costume makeup is applied, gather your favorite face scrub or cleanser and remove any existing makeup. With your face scrub, exfoliate your face in a circular motion. Exfoliating will remove any dead skin cells, which will allow easier application of makeup or any prosthetics.
Once you have rinsed away any facial scrub, proceed through your normal skin routine. If you usually apply toner or moisturizer after cleansing, do not skip these steps. Since you are shocking your skin with foreign, costume makeup, keep your skincare regimen as normal as possible.
You will repeat this very same process when it comes time to remove your costume makeup.
