Party season is upon us, and I’m sure a few of you will be suffering the age old problem of facing work the morning after the Christmas Party. As a light sleeper, perpetual insomniac & alcohol lightweight, I’ve gotten pretty good at masking the sins of the night before – so today I’m running you through my post party skincare routine to help you get through the work day.
I always start by removing any remnants of the night before, and nothing beats The Body Shop’s Camomile Cleansing Balm – it gets rid of every scrap of makeup without drying out the skin or making things feel tight.
If I have time I like to apply a thin layer of the Kiehls Cilantro and Orange Pollutant Defending Masque, which helps clear out pores and perk up the skin. It absorbs super fast, and even just ten minutes of this really helps the skin look more alive.
There’s nothing as good for under eye circles as the First Aid Beauty Triple Eye Duty Remedy – it cools and depuffs with the metal applicator, and the peachy salmon eye cream hydrates & neutralises dark circles. If you buy one thing from this post, make it this!
And lastly, if you’re going to go in with makeup, I suggest prepping with the Too Faced HangoverX Primer, which not only creates a perfect base for makeup, it also gives the skin an extra moisture boost, and helps add a little glow back in.
What are your go to skin perker uppers?
