Old Year’s Eve is all about letting your hair down and ringing in the new year in style. Sometimes though, it’s less ‘style’ and more ‘slurring’. We’re all guilty of getting a bit *ahem* carried away with all the festivities and 1st January is generally spent horizontal praying for the pain to go away. It will…eventually. But drinking to excess doesn’t only wreak havoc on your body internally, but on the outside too. Your skin can look and feel pretty gross the days following a boozy night but fortunately face masks can help.
Here are five that will come to your rescue.
1 The Body Shop Amazonian Acai Energising Radiance Mask
The morning after the night before, one of the biggest concerns your skin is probably facing is looking tired. That’s because you ARE tired. But you can fake your way to a wide-awake glow with this powerhouse of a mask, which is packed with antioxidants.
2 Skin Republic Hyaluronic Acid + Collagen Face Sheet Mask
You feel young and fabulous when that fourth Mai Tai kicks in, but one of the biggest ways that alcohol ruins skin is by accelerating the ageing process. While one binge isn’t going to cause too much damage, you might want to slap some collagen on it, stat. Just in case.
3 Filorga Hydra-Filler Mask
You know that dry mouth and thumping head you get the day after a big night out? That’s due to dehydration, and your skin experiences this nasty side-effect too. This sheet mask is scientifically formulated to give you a surge of moisture and fill in sneaky fine lines.
4 Lush Cup O’ Coffee Face and Body Mask
Other than a greasy breakfast, another thing many of us reach for when we are hungover is a nice, strong coffee as this perks us up when we are exhausted. The scent of this mask-and-scrub-in-one will invigorate the senses and the caffeine contents will help wake up your skin.
5 Cettua Anti-Redness Facial Mask
Redness in the face is just another negative way our body reacts after a drinking sesh. This has to do with how an individual’s body processes alcohol. But don’t worry, there’s a mask for that! This one is super soothing and calms aggravated skin – perfect for the morning after.
Mask on, feet up and relax. You can start on those New Year’s resolutions tomorrow.
