Halloween Mask or Makeup?

Lasting Looks skincare in Sarasota

Want to hear something scary? 

More than half of today’s Halloween makeup, face paint, and glitter glues are contaminated with ingredients associated with developmental delays, hormone disruption, learning difficulties and even cancer.

Studies have shown that the darker the face makeup, the higher the concentration of lead and other heavy metals. 

Our lips are also very vulnerable and vascular, absorbing ingredients more quickly. It takes about 90 seconds for your skin to absorb ingredients that are in liquid and cream makeups into your bloodstream. 

Concentrated toxic glue used along the lash line to adhere false eyelashes can inhibit or even stop hair growth if not removed properly.

So if you or your kids decide to join in on some Halloween festivities here are some helpful tips. 

  1. Make sure the mask is clean and breathable 
  2. Makeup sure to use non toxic natural mineral or plant based makeup
  3. Don’t use glitter or glue on eyelids
  4. Remove your face makeup  thoroughly using a milky cleanser
