5 Night Time Skincare Tips: After Party Edition
Wish the party had lasted longer, didn’t you? But like all good things and parties have come to an end. While it’s all fun and games during, the morning after will definitely leave your skin feeling dull and dehydrated. There are some simple things you must do to take care of your skin and restore it back to full health and get ready for the next one! Here are the top 5 things from our post-party detox list that are quick, simple, and easy.
#1: Cleanse - quickly and thoroughly
Yeah, we know. After returning from a party, the only thing you want to do is fling your shoes away and crash on the bed. But hey, wait! Sweat, grime, and makeup are a dangerous mix to leave on your face, especially while you are asleep.
Use a makeup remover or cleansing balm to get away the makeup and grime first, and then use a gentle face wash to lather away any remaining impurities. Embrace double cleansing, cutie! It can help remove stubborn, pore-clogging, and acne-causing impurities that can remain on the skin even after washing your face once. Finish up by slathering your favorite night cream and sleep easy. Your face is going to thank you for it!
#2: Hydration is the key
Water, water, and water! Salty foods, sugary drinks, alcohol have a dehydrating effect on your body and skin. Too little water will end up making your skin look shriveled and lifeless. That day-after-the-party dryness we feel on our faces is exactly this. Good hydration is the starting point for better-looking skin. It may sound cliched but trust us, there’s no better solution to your skin problems than drinking plenty of water. So drink lots and lots of water, and keep your skin hydrated from the outside, too.
External factors strip your skin of moisture, so it becomes crucial to hold the moisture and lock it back in. You can definitely try out our super hydrator 2% Hyaluronic Acid Serum with Bulgarian Rose to keep your skin looking and feeling plump, bouncy & healthy.
Free radicals abound in the party atmosphere are the number 1 cause of oxidation, which in turn causes aging, dark spots on the face, and other problems. Pile up on antioxidants in your food as well as in your skincare regime because it's time to make up for all the desserts, junk, and wine you had. Nuts, berries, bright-colored fruits, and vegetables are some excellent sources of antioxidants that help neutralize free radicals and keep you protected. Catch our post on antioxidants to get to know these wonder molecules better.
You should include antioxidants in your food, as well as in your skincare regime! Try out our green tea range and specialist serums loaded with antioxidants and all the other good doers for your skin.
Late nights are cool, sort of. Bags under your eyes when you're too young for them - not cool. If you aren't getting enough sleep, be sure that it will reflect on your skin in the form of dark circles, an increase in fine lines, uneven pigmentation, and reduced elasticity in your skin. Simply because the body fails to produce enough melatonin, which is actually responsible for cell repair and thereby, adequate sleep is a prerequisite for healthy skin. Make sure you rest body and mind and give them a chance to jump back to their natural cycles, so making up for lost sleep is an absolute no-brainer on this list.
#5: Wake up, mask up!
When we put a lot of makeup on our skin, we don't realize the damage that's being done. To reverse all the nutrients that have been robbed from your skin, treat yourself to a good face mask. It is an excellent combination of exfoliation, nourishment, and hydration, and the best part? It doesn't take much time. Pick a mask that suits your skin type and follow a once-a-week regime. An absolute must, must-do, especially if you've been partying hard.
So there we go - 5 simple, after-party tricks to help your skin revive, rejuvenate and glow. So, make sure you cuties follow this.
