Tis’ the season… for parties, late-night huddles and counting down to new beginnings!

Hangover skin care tips remove and cleanse

The night itself

Remove & cleanse

While the temptation to head straight to bed is real, so are clogged pores, acne and a whole slew of skin problems you would do best to avoid. Simply take 5 minutes to remove your makeup and give your face a thorough cleanse. Taking a warm shower will also help to calm the adrenaline and prepare you for a better sleep.

Night repair

If you have remaining energy left, slather on a night cream or moisturizer. One of the ways alcohol affects your skin is by dehydrating it, so moisture replenishment is key in the recovery process. While sleeping, our skin works hard to repair itself and hydrating ingredients provide the building blocks to help!

The next morning

Review your glow

Late nights coupled with alcohol kill off healthy cells at a faster rate and your skin may be looking dull or lackluster after a hangover. Start off your morning routine by exfoliating your skin. Exfoliating helps to slough off the dead skin cells that contribute to dullness and uncover the glow beneath.
 

Tip: Use Miraglo with Cleanser 1 for safe, gentle yet precise exfoliation suitable for sensitive skin.

Hydrate!

This is the second basic rule on top of night cleansing. Make sure to feed your parched and thirsty skin with lots of moisture. If you are spotting red blotchy patches or dry patches, soothe and calm your skin down with gentle hydrating ingredients.

Bonus
Our skin is largely dependent on what goes on inside our body. So, on top of skin care, you can also rejuvenate your body by drinking loads of water the next morning to flush out the toxins in your body. Enjoy a warm cup of tea – green tea, chamomile or an herbal mix of goji berries with chrysanthemum can help to detox and awaken the senses.
