What happened last night? If you’ve woken up with lacklustre and dehydrated skin after a night of questionable decisions – had one too many glasses of champagne or binge-watched Descendants of the Sun until four in the morning – help your skin recover stat.
The booze from the night before and the caffeine you’ve chugged this morning can dehydrate your skin. Glasses up – Drink lots of H20 or coconut water throughout the day to quench skin’s thirst.
Before applying any skincare products, slough off dead skin cells with a facial scrub to rid signs of dullness. Your skin will be instantly smoother and can reflect more light for a brighter complexion. Bonus: Skincare products applied after absorb better. Our go-to scrubs include the Fresh Sugar Face Polish and Arcona Cranberry Gommage.
#3 Load up on antioxidants
Know this: Alcohol depletes skin of antioxidants. So look out for ingredients such as niacinamide, caffeine and vitamin C when choosing your serums and creams.
#4 Fake it until you make it
If your skin feels dehydrated, opt for creamy makeup formulas. For a natural glow, use a tinted moisturiser or facial oil instead of highlighting powders.
#5 Walk it off
Increase blood circulation and bring back skin’s radiance by walking briskly for just three minutes.
