How To Protect Your Skin While Wearing Halloween Makeup

fybc 26

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.

Last But Not Least…

If you find your face breaking out or your skin highly irritated after Halloween has come and gone, visit us here at FYBC. We offer wonderful skincare services that are sure to aid your skin in it’s return to normalcy. Halloween should be a night to remember, but not because the effects remain on the surface of your skin. Give us a call today and secure your appointment before the holiday weekend is in full swing.

The 5 Worst Things You’re Doing To Your Skin

FYBC 9:7.jpgWhen it comes to your complexion, seeing a dermatologist isn’t the most important thing. What matters most is how you treat your skin every day. Whether you pride yourself in taking careful care of your skin or hardly touch your face, there are common missteps that can seriously mess with your complexion.  By stopping these 5 mistakes, you will be that much closer to healthier, younger looking skin.

Forgetting to wear sunscreen every day, including during winter: 

Although UV rays are much stronger during the summer, they are present and active all year-long. UV won’t turn your skin red but they can cause wrinkling, age spots, and even cancer. Don’t forget that UV rays can penetrate the clouds and glass, so protect yourself with SPF all year round.

 

Taking long, hot showers:

Long, hot showers are a sure-fire way to turn your skin flaky and dry! Hot water strips the oil and moisture from your skin, leaving it itchy. So, if you already have dry skin, the worst thing you can do is take more hot showers. A great rule of thumb; if your mirror steams up, your water is too hot. Turn down the temperature and get out before your skin prunes. After showering, apply lotion!

 

Not getting enough sleep:

Aside from under eye circles, sleeping too little doesn’t allow your skin to repair itself. Nighttime is an important time for your skin as it works to create, mend and shed skin cells. For healthier looking skin, you should get at least 7 hours of sleep a night.

Going to sleep without washing your face:

Although you should be washing your face twice a day (when you wake up and before you go to be), as long as you wash before bed, all is well. Sleeping with impurities, makeup and built up oil will not only disrupt your cell turnover causing your skin to look dull but it will clog your pores and cause black heads.

Attempting to scrub acne away:
Acne is a hormonal issue, not a hygiene problem. That being said, excessively cleaning your skin with soap and other exfoliants will only hurt you not help. Over-cleansing will inhibit medications or other products from clearing your condition. Instead of scrubbing, wash your face gently with a cleanser that contains salicylic acid.

Natural Ways To Fight Seasonal Allergies

FYBC 7:27.jpg

If you are experiencing seasonal allergies, this post is for you! As summer begins, you may be experiencing swelling, itchy eyes and skin. Here are a few tips that can provide temporary relief and can remedy any allergy symptom you may be experiencing. 

Chilled Goats Milk

You can fight just about any eye infections and irritation with chilled goats milk. Goat’s milk has a natural immune boosting effect that can provide relief as the season’s change. Apply cotton rounds soaked in chilled goats milk to your eyes before getting ready in the morning and before bed to curb allergy symptoms for the whole day.

Rosewater Rinse

With pure rosewater, rinse or place a couple of drops underneath your eyes throughout the day. Like the goat’s milk, you can also chill the rosewater for the same calming effect.

Organic Aloe Vera Chill

Just like the goat’s milk trick, apply chilled aloe-soaked, cotton round to your eyes. You can either individually extract aloe from the plant itself or purchase a bottle of pure organic aloe.  The effect is virtually the same. Organic aloe is a must! Not only is this process soothing but it is perfect for bringing down inflammation.  

Theses home remedies really do work! However, if you are looking for hands-on treatment, book your appointment with us today. Our facials and skin treatments are sure to calm any seasonal irritation you may be experiencing. Calm, fresh skin is waiting for you. Call us today.
