HANGOVER CURE FOR THE FACE - DIY
Hangover Beauty Tips: 6 Face Masks That Will Rescue Your Skin
You can pile on blusher and down water by the gallon, but if you’re feeling ropey, your skin will give you away. Jess Lacey turns to hi-tech formulas for the ultimate cure.
Hangover skin is full of contradictions: grey but blotchy; dehydrated but oily, with fine lines that definitely weren’t there before. But alcohol is full of sugar, so it’s like raiding a sweet shop and wondering why your skin looks bad.
Sugar kick-starts a process called glycation, which hardens surface cells and dehydrates skin. Alcohol also expands your blood vessels, which impedes circulation and disrupts the flow of oxygen – hence the red patches. Meanwhile your kidneys and liver are working overtime to detoxify.
Our biggest hangover beauty tip? Apply a face mask. Hi-tech formulas contain fruit acids to improve microcirculation and increase skin oxygen levels. ‘Masks deeply hydrate, regenerate and comfort the skin to counter the visible effects of alcohol’, says celebrity esthetician Joanna Czech, who works with Crème de la Mer. ‘Ideally, apply a mask that night, when skin is able to absorb the product more effectively’, she says.
It won’t ease your pounding head, but your skin will look brighter, plumper and a lot perkier.
