Halloween is one of the year’s most anticipated holidays, as people of all ages have the chance to join in on the fun and channel their inner kid—children, parents, and even grandparents set out within the neighborhoods each year to make memories, celebrate community, and of course, don their favorite costumes. But regardless of age, everyone is prone to skin issues—and between cheap masks, face paints, and glue-on prosthetics, post-Halloween breakouts and skin irritation are often inevitable.
Fortunately, there are some pretty strange—and arguably spooky—skincare products that are out on the market right now, many of which could totally double as a face mask for Halloween. Here are some mask alternatives that will help you perfect your costume and elevate your skin-care game, in the process.
The Hanacure Multi-Action Treatment Mask
This mask went viral on social media last year after influencers became aware of the magical, face-tightening features brought on by the Hanacure Multi-Action Treatment Mask. While it may make you look like a zombie, the results provided from this treatment cannot be argued—and despite its appearance on your face, it actually has anti-aging benefits and works to lift skin. $29 at www.hanacure.com.
Emoji Sheet Masks
The laugh-cry emoji is arguably one of the most recognizable images in the world—and with this all-in-one sheet mask, you can be just as iconic this Halloween. When wearing it, the product provides hydrating, brightening, and soothing benefits for skin. $18 on www.amazon.com.
Red & Blue Light Therapy Acne Mask
This light therapy mask is as terrifying as it is good for your skin—just be prepared to look like the antagonist from your favorite horror film. The special, built-in red and blue lights help to reduce redness and kill acne-causing bacteria. $35 at www.neutrogena.com.
