Skincare SOS

If the festive season has taken its toll on your skin, the chances are you’re not alone.

After all, too much partying and not enough sleep can leave tell-tale signs all over your face.

But don’t despair; there are plenty of ways to rescue your exhausted complexion.

Rest and reboot:

After burning the candle at both ends, one of the best ways to get your complexion back on track is to ensure you get your beauty sleep.

After the holidays are over, get back into a solid sleep schedule and make an effort to go to bed and wake up at the same time every day. Well rested skin is bright and healthy looking. Tired skin is dull and lackluster.

Quench and rehydrate:

If you’ve been knocking back the mulled wine, it’s time to turn your attention back to water. The more dehydrated you are, the worse your skin and hair will look, so get glugging that water. Hydrated skin is supple, rather than pale and tight.

Pamper and perfect:

Often with a hangover you can feel a little flushed in the morning. Stop yourself from overheating with a skin boosting tonic, such as Liz Earle Instant Boost Skin Tonic which combines essential oils like rosewood and lavender with calming botanicals, aloe vera and cucumber for the perfect skin refresher. Add a drop of The Body Shop Vitamin C Skin Reviver to smooth skin and even out any fine lines.

If all else fails, cover up any unwanted dark circles with an airbrush concealer to give you a beautifully blurred complexion. Clinique Airbrush Concealer has a titanium dioxide formula which banishes redness, dark circles and shadows.
