So I like to blog about everyday things that happen as I feel it makes my blog easier to relate to, if that makes any sense!
Last night, my friends and I went to a local concert type thing, there was a Madness and Queen tribute band, we all love a bit of Ska and bohemian rhapsody eh.
Allot of very embarrassing singing and drunken dancing took place, I've also had a relay horrible cold, so this morning I woke up to my skin being an insanely dry, sensitive, puffy and red mess. It is definitely lacking with the normal glowy radiance I like it to have.
Every girl loves to party, and I'm sure I'm not the only one who has to deal with the general death like skin the morning after.This inspired me to make a post about the issue of caring for hungover and dehydrated skin!
So here is my ways of dealing with after party skin -
Water - Seriously, I drink quite allot of water everyday, but tiredness and alcohol is so dehydrating for skin, I make myself drink a pint of water as soon as I wake up
Deep clean - I make sure I give my face a proper wash with a gentle foaming cleanser, as normally I don't get round to washing my face at all If Ive been partying.
I also steam my face occasionally, with a bowl of hot water and a few drops of tea tree oil, it is so good for clarifying and detoxing the skin!
MOISTURISE - This is definitely the most crucial part, for really dry skin I swear by good old Nivea cream, it is so cheap, like 99p!
I slather on a really thick layer on my face and neck, like I would a face mask, and just leave it to soak in, glowyness will ensue!
Makeup - If I have to go out, minimal makeup is definitely key. Tinted moisturiser, allot of brightening concealer, bronzer, lip balm, mascara, white eyeliner. 8 hour cream is a godsend in dehydrated skin situations, apply liberally!
More makeup does not equal more beauty, in any situation, especially not post party! Sheer and glowy makeup with a glossy lip is what I go for, à la gossip girl and Olivia Palermo. Speaking from experience,matte powder and caked on foundation will just make skin look even more grey, tired and dull.
Sleep - I just love sleeping in general, and my skin is a million times better after a good ten hours!
So I hope you girlie's enjoyed this post, comment me and let me know what your ways to deal with post party skin are!
A bacon sandwich ( or any fried food in large quantities), cup of tea, some reality TV and light reading material are completely necessary in making yourself feel human again.
This could be a hidden gem that only the likes of sporty gym whores and buff jocks know about, this stuff is amazing! Its one of those fizzy tablets you dissolve in water, it tastes like Orange squash and it has like every mineral and vitamin you need per day. It peps me up and makes you feel really lush and if you drink it daily you are less likely to get colds and such. I don't drink this daily, only when I'm hungover, I have a cold right now, case in point really!
