Face paints and decorations, strong pigments, and pancake makeup that are often used in creating Halloween looks may leave skin looking irritated, due to the heavy formulas full of waxes and oils they contain. To help your skin maintain its balance, use skin-care products that include calming ingredients. I recommend using TULA Hydrating Day and Night Cream, which employs a probiotic extract and delivers nourishing skin benefits with hydration for soft, supple skin.
