On October 31st, your sexy clown Halloween costume seemed like the PERFECT idea.
On November 1st… not so much.
All of that clown makeup, candy & booze wrecked your skin.
So What Do You Do?
Here are 5 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 Radiance Enzyme 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 & Willow Bark Purifying 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 was Namaste’in at a yoga class…” type of radiant complexion. Feeling doubly ambitious? Use the Rose & Willow Bark Blemish-Free Mask, then follow with the Turmeric Antioxidant Radiance mask for a truly deep clean and rejuvenated glow.
Skin feeling dehydrated and depleted? Give your skin an extra dose of nourishment and moisture by applying our Java Plum Avocado Nourishing Mask. Too tired and sluggish to take it off? No worries, you can leave this skin comforting mask leave on overnight, so enjoy your well-deserved rest while the mask does all the work!
3. Flush Out Toxins with Ginger & Turmeric
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. Your liver is working overtime to flush all that booze out of your system, so give it some extra loving support with a Ginger and Turmeric tea. While the mask is treating your skin, 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, just add a pinch of Turmeric powder from your spice rack or add Turmeric drops from the health food store. Or if you want to go homemade, just chop equal parts of ginger and turmeric, boil, and sweeten with honey!
4. Tone, Tone, Tone!
After the deep pore cleansing mask, you’re going to need to tone and hydrate your skin to allow blemishes to subside, or skin to rehydrate after festivities! Our JUARA Tamarind Tea Hydrating Toner is a skin soothing thirst quencher – chock full of oil-free hydrating ingredients including Tamarind and antioxidant teas.
5. Treat & Seal!
Once your skin is cleansed, purified and re-hydrated, it’s time for a concentrated super-juice infusion. JUARA Clove Flower Turmeric Anti-Aging Serum is chock-full of botanicals to nurse stressed skin back to its balanced state. Energize skin and lock in all that hydration with a Kombucha-based moisturizer, Sweet Black Tea & Rice Moisturizer for normal to dry skin, and Sweet Black Tea & Ginger Oil-Free Moisturizer for oily to combination skin. The sleep-deprived, delicate eye area will get extra TLC with JUARA Miracle Tea Complete Eye Creme.
Halloween may be a great reason to do a deep cleanse routine, but this is also great for any other time you have to wear lots of makeup, (ie: for the stage, a party, or even 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 bye to the “BOO!” in your skin and say hello to “BOO-tiful” (sorry, it couldn’t be helped!).
