On October 30th, your sexy clown Halloween costume seems like the PERFECT idea.
On November 1st… not so much.
All of that clown makeup, candy and booze wrecked your skin.
So What Do You Do?
Here are 3 simple steps to detox your skin (and body) after a so-much-fun-it-bordered-on-too-much-fun Halloween!
1. Cleanse with a Gentle Scrub.
Let’s be honest, you probably aren’t going to wash your face when you get home at 2am. When you wake up, you’re going to look like a very, very sad clown. Reverse the damage by cleansing with a scrub! The exfoliation will help to lift the makeup, sweat and dirt out of your pores to ready them for the next step. Our JUARA Enzyme Radiance Scrub does double duty as a cleansing scrub with all natural jojoba and bamboo beads PLUS quick fruit enzyme mask, so skin is freshly clean, healthy, and ready to receive further treatment!
2. Detox with a Mask…or Two!
So now your face is red, blotchy, and that pimple on your chin that’s been plaguing you since middle school is back with a vengeance. Apply a deep pore cleansing mask to detox your skin, allowing those nasty blemishes to surface and then fade away. The JUARA Rose & Willowbark Blemish-Free Mask will purify skin while calming it down, so say bye-bye to that red zit and hello to refined pores.
Blemish free already? Try our Turmeric Antioxidant Radiance Mask to clear your pores of the same dirt and makeup, but also give it a healthy, “I wasn’t at a party but at a yoga class…” type of radiant complexion. Feeling doubly ambitious? Use the Rose & Willowbark Blemish-Free Mask, and after, follow with the Turmeric Antioxidant Radiance mask for a true deep clean and rejuvenated glow.
3. Flush Out Toxins with Ginger-Turmeric Tea
Once your face is taken care of, it’s time to address your body. That Halloween party was such a blast that it left you bloated, dehydrated and hungover. While the mask is cleansing your pores, mix up a soothing ginger-turmeric tea to detox and de-bloat. Make sure to keep drinking water throughout the day to keep your body hydrated and happy. We’re loving the easy-to-find Trader Joe’s Ginger-Turmeric Tea, or if you want to go homemade, just chop equal parts of ginger and turmeric, boil, and sweeten with honey!
After the deep pore cleansing mask, you’re going to need to tone and hydrate your skin throughout the day to allow blemishes to subside, or skin to rehydrate after festivities! our JUARA Tamarind Tea Hydrating Toner is a skin soothing thirst quencher – with a chock full of oil-free hydrating ingredients including Tamarind and antioxidant teas.
Halloween may be a great reason to do a deep cleanse routine, but this is also a great any other time you have to wear lots of makeup, (aka for a stage, party, or everyday). Actually, whenever you feel the need for a love-my-skin recovery routine, feel free to give these steps a go so say bye to the “BOO!” in your skin and say hello to “YAY!”
