Although Halloween is a fun chance to get creative with your makeup, it often causes major 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 aftercare 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 general, 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 skin care regimen as normal as possible. You will repeat this very same process when it comes time to remove your costume makeup.

Keeping your skin clear can be a challenge. Between weather changes, stress management, and hormones, maintaining clear skin can sometimes feel impossible. What if we told you there was something you could do to better control the clarity of your skin? Well, you are in luck because your diet is a major influence on your skin. Here are 5 acne causing foods to steer clear from this fall.
Dairy products are the biggest culprits when it comes to causing acne. If you are breaking out on your neck, chin or jawline, chances are your intake of dairy is to blame. Why dairy? Dairy products increase your body’s release of insulin and other growth hormones.
Sugar, in general, is not good for clear skin and bananas are especially high in sugar. Too much sugar leads to inflammation of the skin which often leads to acne and redness. People who remove sugar from their diet oftentimes see a difference in their skin in just one week.
The notion that greasy foods cause acne used to be just a myth. However, studies have proven that greasy foods are a direct connection to acne. French fries have a glycemic index of 75 which means it has the ability to drastically change your body’s blood sugar. Elevated blood sugar increases insulin which increases excess oil and skin cell production and leads to clogged pores and breakouts. In addition, the high presence of salt dehydrates your skin.
The cleaner the diet, the clearer your skin will be. To feel great on the inside and outside, avoid these three foods. For more information on ways to keep your skin clean and clear, contact us at Forever Young Body Clinic. Book an appointment with one of our skin care specialists today.

The transition from the summer heat to brisk fall weather can certainly take a toll on your skin. Although stocking up on a quality moisturizer is beneficial, the key to keeping your skin fresh and healthy may be sitting in your backyard. Autumn is the best time to take advantage of pumpkin and its skincare benefits.
Pumpkins offer the benefits like:
- Help promote cell turnover
- Brightens & smooths skin
- Is a natural source of zinc which fights acne
- High in fatty acids and vitamin E
Regardless of the skin type you have, pumpkin-based products can help! Here are a few ways to incorporating pumpkin into your fall skincare routine:
1. Pumpkin Spice Body Scrub
Everyone needs a good exfoliant! They are great for getting rid of dry, dead skin and can help bring back a natural glow. However, it is important to moisturize after any scrub. If you don’t have a moisturizer, simply add a few teaspoons of rich plant oil to your Pumpkin Spice scrub recipe.
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/4 cup organic canned pumpkin (or homemade pumpkin puree)
- Mix sugar, nutmeg, and cinnamon together. Mix with pumpkin. Apply to skin and scrub in a circular motion, and rinse.
2. Pumpkin Puree Moisturizer
This moisturizer should be made in small batches because it will get moldy if left unused. It should be stored in the fridge
In a large bowl mix:
- 1/2 cup canned pumpkin
- 1/2 cup coconut oil
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
Store in the fridge and use just like a regular moisturizer!
3. Pumpkin Flesh Facial
It sounds a bit odd, but you can toss pumpkin puree right onto your skin and leave it be for several minutes and be doing some good for your skin.
If you have a little more time, try this facial:
- 2 tablespoons of canned pumpkin (puréed)
- 1 tablespoon of soy yogurt or ¼ teaspoon of soy milk
- ½ teaspoon of brown sugar
- ¼ teaspoon cranberry juice or
- ½ teaspoon oatmeal
