Three killer ways to look better after a hangover

In our last post we talked about prepping your skin so you look flawless all night, but what about when the partying sinks in and you look a little less glam? If you're drinking on a night out, more often than not you will wake up feeling a little rough, so we decided to share our top three tips on how to look better when you've had a bit too much fun the night before.

1. Water, water, water

Alcohol dehydrates you and your skin. If you can, try to drink water in between drinks. This will not only help to keep you sober, but your skin will thank you. If you prefer, be sure to have a glass or two of water before bed and carry on drinking water in the morning. This will help to flush out the alcohol faster and hydrate your skin from the inside out.

2. Remove your makeup

Now, we all know that nobody wants to stand in the mirror intoxicated and remove their makeup, but it really will help you look better in the morning. A quick cleanse, tone and moisturise routine will ensure that your skin is perfectly clean and help to nourish it. Use a thicker night moisturiser if you can to replenish as much lost moisture as possible.

3. Next morning..

Exfoliate. It's a bit yucky but lots of people excrete toxins via their skin. One great way to clear your skin is to use an exfoliating cleanser, rinsed off with body temperature water.

If you're going to be facing the public, one obvious sign that you might have been enjoying yourself a bit much the night before is that your eyes may look heavy. An insider make-up artist tip is to put some wet teabags in the fridge and then rest them on your eyes for ten minutes: the tea will help reduce shadows and swelling around your eyes.

Did you know hangovers get better with age?

Yep - that's right. According to this study of over 50,000 people in Denmark, hangover severity decreases with age.
