New Year’s Eve marks the day of reflecting, soul-searching, but most importantly partying; and partying equals to not just fun, but drinking very adult beverages and overindulgence. January 1st is the day to begin the beauty hangover cure to get the skin into tip top shape for the New Year.
The New Year after party must first is the cleansing of the face; never go to bed without first cleansing your skin. Your skin care routine should never change even post party; cleanse and moisturize and at least once a week, cleanse, exfoliate, masque, and moisturize. Your skin will thank you in the morning and you will not wake up with raccoon eyes.
Speaking of eyes a night of partying will show first in the eyes; dark circles, fine lines, redness and dryness. Before you go to bed after a great party remove eye makeup, add eye drops and use a great eye serum or crème to evaporate all of your eye concern. Another great morning after eye cure is applying hot or cold teabags on the eyes or applying cold spoons to the area; the chill reduces puffiness.
Anyone who is a fan of the Real Housewives of New York remembers when Sonja Morgan put her face in the bidet of ice after a long trans Atlantic flight; you do not and I repeat Do Not have to put your face in a toilet or bidet to get the same affect the sink is fine . The ice will reduce the swelling and puffiness in your face immediately and it will leave you feeling exhilarated.
Vitamin C is very important the morning after; for inside of the body and on the skin. Taking Vitamin C will help you to wake up without that hangover effect. A Vitamin C gel masque will give your skin a glowing effect and nourish it as well.
Drinking alcohol is the number one cause for dehydration; so the day after drinking water is a must to rehydrate inside and out. The great drinking formula is this: for every alcoholic beverage you drink, drink one glass of water you will feel much better in the morning. The day after drink nothing but water; you can flavor it with lemon, lime, or an orange slice, but your body will thank you later.
December 31st party all night and indulge, January 1st add this beauty cure to your list of resolutions and on January 2nd when you go back to work no will be the wiser on just how bad you were.
