The party season’s well and truly upon us, bringing with it Christmas parties, New Years Festivities and more often than not, apocalyptic hangovers. At this time of year, with the electrifying atmosphere of holiday mode, it can be super easy to over indulge in one too many glasses of bubbly. While celebrating can be fun at the time, it can leave you with not only a splitting headache, but your complexion calling out for some serious SOS. So rather than pairing some huge sunnies with blotchy, puffy skin the morning after, try our tips to make sure the only evidence of your big night is the handful of loose change in your purse.
Our top pick? Dragon’s Blood 3-In-1 Advanced Treatment Cleanser $24.95. This 3-in-1 solution thoroughly cleanses without stripping the skin of its natural oils, gently exfoliates with a natural blend of AHA fruit extracts, and lightly moisturises to leave the skin feeling soft, smooth and hydrated after every wash. So your skin is instantly fresher, cleaner and brighter (and you can avoid those pesky break-outs)!
While your brain may be calling out for as much liquid as humanely possible, your skin probably is too. Drinking alcohol causes your complexion to become severely dehydrated, so reach for deeply hydrating products that help to restore the moisture lost in the skin.
Our top picks? Advance SUPERLIFT 3D Deep Hydration Lifting Masks $29.95. Infused with replenishing natural and active ingredients including Hyaluronic Acid, these uniquely masks use 3D contour technology to mould to the shape of the face & neck, and restore lost moisture while lifting, firming and recovering elasticity in the skin.
Follow it up with Nature’s SUPEROIL $39.95, a unique blend of ancient oils containing the richest natural sources of omega 3-6-9 and super antioxidants. This non-greasy and fast absorbing oil is a match made in heaven for dehydrated skin and works quickly to protect against dryness, nourish and calm the skin.
Bloodshot, red, puffy eyes are a tell-tale sign of the morning after a night on the town. Rather than reaching for the supersized sunnies (and wearing them indoors) try a product that will instantly soothe your eye area and reduce both puffiness and dark circles.
Our top picks? EYE CONTOURING SERUM $59.95. A scientifically designed treatment for a complete 360 ° revival and prevention of the signs of ageing and fatigue around the eye contour. Forget about dark circles and say hello to fresh, bright under eyes!
CAFFEINE+ $39.95 This revitalising formula contains 5% Caffeine + Copper Peptides, Hyaluronic Acid & Vitamin B3 to reduce puffiness, brighten & firm, plus a powerful tightening active to instantly smooth skin around the eye contour for seamless makeup application.
Dehydration is one of the main causes of chapped, dry, cracked lips. After a night of drinking, you may not be able to avoid the hangover, but you can avoid dry and irritated lips! Whip out your trusty lip treatment and reapply throughout the day to keep your lips soft and supple.
Our top pick? SUPERLIPS $39.95. This anti-ageing lip treatment instantly plumps, smooths and fills the lips with Microsphere Hyaluronic Acid and is infused with White Mustard Extract to immediately moisturise, soften and enhance your natural lip colour. Designed for instant and long term, needle free results.
