If there’s one downside to the party season, it’s waking up the next morning feeling slightly worse for wear. If you had one too many cocktails, or were dancing the night away until the early hours, these beauty heroes can help you hide the tell-tale signs – it’ll be your little secret.
Removing your make up might not be top on your list of priorities when you get home, so thoroughly cleansing the skin should be your first port of call. After a late night, a gentle cleanser is your best bet, helping to remove traces of the night before without causing any excess drying. Estée Lauder’s Take it Away makeup remover lotion is one of our favourites, working quickly and gently to remove even long-wear and waterproof makeup. It’s light, refreshing and doesn’t leave a greasy residue, ensuring your face feels fresh and clean.
A face scrub is a perfect pick-me-up after a night out, as its double action formula breathes life back into your skin. The exfoliating particles will remove dead skin from the surface which can make you look dull and lifeless, whilst the scrubbing action will boost blood flow to the surface of your skin, improving circulation and adding some colour to your cheeks. This Gentle Rose Exfoliator from Elemis contains jojoba beads and is specially formulated to be suitable for even sensitive skin, making this product a winner whatever your skin type.
Hyaluronic acid has become a new skincare staple, it’s able to absorb up to 1000 times its own weight in water making it the unrivalled ingredient when it comes to rehydrating skin. Rodial’s Dragon’s Blood Hyaluronic Moisturiser promises 24-hours of hydration, which teamed with the anti-inflammatory properties of Dragon’s Blood makes this product a must-have for nourished skin.
We all know that under eye circles can be the biggest giveaway of a late night, so banish all the tell-tale signs with a 15 minute treatment from Bliss. Featuring 3 forms of glow-inducing oxygenation, antioxidant vitamin C and cucumber extract, the T20 Eye Mask is like an energy drink for your eyes – an instant reliever for your delicate dark circles.
If you’re in search of a one-stop product to get you looking your best after the night before, the Super Acids X-treme Hangover Mask from Rodial has you covered. The triple action formula cleanses, exfoliates and restores skin for a healthy looking complexion in one simple step. The clay mask teams probiotic technology with hexapeptide, glycolic and fruit acids for an anti-ageing, rehydrating and strengthening formula that you’ll love.
