Tricks or Tips to removing Stubborn Halloween Makeup

Whether your targeting your inner princess with a golden gown from Beauty & the Beast, or Daenerys from Game of Thrones, there is one thing all Halloween costumes have in common: the stubborn makeup. Layers and layers of pigment loaded makeup, worn for hours… But what’s the scariest thing of all? Falling asleep after a candy over-dose without taking it all off. After costume parties and late-night trick-or-treaters, our skin is in need of some major TLC.

So how do we recover from our skin’s scariest day of the year? The first step is to use products during the festivities with the best ingredients. That ensures that anything that is absorbed into our body contains a minimal amount of petroleum derivatives, heavy metals and other synthetic dyes and toxic ingredients. Then, make sure you remove face paints and thick make-up with products that can handle the stuck-on bright colors of eyeshadows and lipsticks. Using products with good ingredients and removing them as soon as possible helps your skin stay strong during times of trouble.

Removing Makeup

Use the Ogee Cleansing Cloths to cleanse, exfoliate, and freshen up after being trapped under layers of heavy Halloween makeup. Perfect for removing thick eye liners and stubborn bright-hued eye shadows, the gentle cleansing formula breaks down the bonds of makeup that set onto the skin. The surface of the cloths removes the particles to cleanse and purify your pores, while a nutrient rich layer delivers moisture to soften and soothe. Made with Aloe Vera Juice, Jojoba Oil, and Oat Extract, these ingredients are the perfect combination to break down dead skin cells and promote new cell generation.

Save our Skin

After removing the layers of colors and chemicals we put on our skin during Halloween, our face becomes a blank canvas. So, what to do next? Our skin needs moisture and antioxidants for a healthy glow. Apply an even layer of the Seeds of Youth Serum from the center, out. Apply in gentle tapping motions to stimulate maximum absorption and collagen production. Massage on to your face focusing on the forehead, and the delicate skin around the eyes and mouth. Follow with the Jojoba Restore Face Oil, applying all over your face from the center, out. Geranium Flower Essential Oil promotes skin regeneration, combined with Organic Cold Pressed Jojoba Oil, Vitamin E, and antioxidants to hydrate the skin. Bonus: Jojoba  is also clinically proven non-comedogenic, meaning it will not clog pores. The Face Oil instantly moisturizes and rebalances skin after the harshest Halloween conditions.

Lip Love

With fun lip colors and permanent promises of lipstick, use the Ogee Sculpted Lip Oil to moisturize and plump lips back to health. Fun make-up colors can dry out our lips, leaving us feeling cracked, dry, and trying not to smile. Who wants to live with that? The Sculpted Lip Oil moisturizes with a blend of organic oils including Organic Cold-Pressed Jojoba Oil and organic Peppermint Oil. The Lip Oil is super soft and leaves your lips feeling loved and nourished.
