Part of the allure behind dressing up for Halloween is the preparation—the hours spent endlessly searching the web for costume inspiration, or the hunt for materials to complete the look or dousing your face in several layers of makeup.

It doesn’t matter if the costume is spooky, sensual, savage or scandalous (queue Mean Girls quote about Halloween being the night where judgment is not allowed) the entire experience of preparing for the event is exhilarating.

But what about the post-party? Doesn’t the dressing down of your look deserve the same care, attention, and thoughtfulness that the dressing up was given? After copious amounts of stage makeup, face-paint and, in some cases, jewels have been applied to your skin, be sure to replenish the skin by using these luxurious products.
