Has anyone else woken up after a night out, touched your face and realised it’s super dehydrated? We certainly have. It’s commonly know that alcohol causes dehydration. As well as this bringing on a hangover headache and ‘the fear’, it also doesn’t do wonders for your skin. You may find that you don’t look your best after a night out, your skin might be drier than normal and you might be feeling a bit glum. We have a couple of tips that will help you feel human again, inside and out.
This might be the most simple of all skincare advise. Drink water! Being hydrated on the inside, will show on the outside. Plus, if you’ve had a heavy night before it makes sense to lap up the H2O and get yourself feeling human as quickly as possible. You can get hydrated from many other things too, not just water. Try snacking on some watermelon, celery or strawberries. We also advise that if you have errands to run, you keep a big bottle of water with you. The annoying weight of the bottle will force you to drink all your water, just so you don’t have to carry it around. Would that classify as a #lifehack? We think so!
Scrub Away The Sin
Using an energising face scrub is sure to give you a bit of a boost on most days, never mind the morning after. Face scrubs also help to increase blood flow, which in turn will add a bit of colour back to your face. When you’re feeling a bit fragile, your skin can tend to take on a slight grey tone. Hopefully an energising face scrub will help, follow it with a cooling toner that you can use to refresh you through rest of the day.
