The party last night was a blast! The food was delicious, the music was amazing and the cocktails were delightfully tasty. But now the night is over, it’s the next day and looking back at you in the mirror is a person with skin that looks like it partied last night like it was 1999. You’ve got work to get to, life to get on with….. how do you fix this? Like always, we have got ya’ covered! Here is our 5 step post party skin fix – you might be feeling the night before, but there is no need to look like you are!
Step One: Just Add Water
Mix 1 part Gatorade and 2 parts water, and drink it. Hydration drinks are chock full of sugar and sodium, diluting them gives you water you need, with a hydration boost so you absorb it better, without the extra calories, and puffing up side effects that sometimes happen when you drink hydration drinks straight.
Step two: Retrain to Retain (aka retrain your skin to retain water)
After cleansing your face in the shower (using a gentle microfiber cloth to buff away the leftovers from the night before) once out, while your skin is still damp liberally apply (and we mean liberally, don’t skimp!) a dose of Hydrating B5 Gel. This will help your skin hold onto water, water that was whisked away the night before by the last two (or three) cocktails consumed 😉
Step three: Spritz and Spray Away
Avene Thermal Spring Water. Repeat. Over and over as often as you want. This product will not only feel amazing on puffy, tired skin, it will help reduce post party redness and inflammation. The best part? You literally cannot overdo it, so keep up the spritzing all day long.
Step four: Hydrate
Moisturize. Your temptation will be to find your heaviest moisturizer, but stick with a light weight moisturizer like the Dermaquest Essential Moisturizer so that you can re-apply steps 2-4 a few times throughout the day if needed.
Step five: Apply a Bit of Faux Glow
Go easy on the makeup. All you need is touch of highlighter, a sheer warm pink lipstick, and a swipe of water proof mascara. This simple application will brighten your complexion and withstand re-application of your B5 Gel and your Avene Thermal Spring Water throughout the day. Heavy makeup applications on skin that has not recovered yet will only highlight the lack of luster in your skin and make you look worse.
Once you have survived the first 12 hours post party, your skin is ready to return to its regular daily routine. Returning to your routine will help get your skin back on track. If you’re still feeling a little dull post-holiday season, give us a call to book a dermaplaning to reset your skin and return yourself to your glowing glory!
