How to keep your skin from looking as spooky as your costume
Halloween is synonymous with heavy makeup, face paint, and masks—three costume enhancers that can wreak havoc on your poor pores while you monster mash the night away.
To avoid post-trick-or-treat acne, pick up a pack of facial cleansing cloths. These three are natural-leaning and conveniently portable, whether you’re toting a plastic pumpkin or a witch’s broom.
Skyn Iceland Glacial Cleansing Cloths, $15 for 30. There are lots of great ingredients in these, from soothing oat and arctic berry extracts to pore-purifying willow bark. (And then a whole lot of other unnecessary ingredients I wish they’d do without.) Available at all Ricky’s NYC locations. Ricky’s will also be giving out free samples with any purchase.
Korres Pomegranate Cleansing & Makeup Removing Wipes, $12 for 25. These non-sticky wipes use glycerin to wipe away your grime; the clean, not cloying, pomegranate provides scent more than antioxidant power. Korres Soho, 110 Wooster Street, NYC. Also available at select Sephora locations.
Yes to Cucumbers Facial Towelettes, $5.99 for 3o. There is no mistaking the cucumber fragrance of these affordable towelettes. Interestingly it comes from organic cukes! Available at most Duane Reade locations.
