5 Ways To Revive Hungover Skin After A Wild Night Out
So, it’s December already. I know, the year just flew by! But I think I’m pretty ready for 2017, no? All the December parties, weddings, and occasions are keeping me plenty busy. Not to mention, work is on overdrive this season. Add to that the fact that there’s a lot of alcohol going around this season and your skin pretty much goes for a toss. Your body and head aren’t the only things that get a hangover. Here’s how you can avoid and revive hungover skin to look gorgeous throughout the month.
1. Keep Hydrated
You might already know this, but let me reiterate: glowing skin has a lot to do with what you’re putting in your body. Topical application is just salvaging the damage that has already been one. So, first…keep hydrated. Drink about 10 glasses of water every day and up the dose if you plan on drinking. Don’t let partying or a crazy schedule get to your skin. In fact, right now would be a good time to rely on an energy and nutrient boost that can come from nature — à la Raw Pressery.

2. Detox Your Skin
I know it’s difficult to go on an all-out detox this time of the year, so here’s the next best thing you can do for your liver, which will, in turn, keep your skin glowing. Try an all-natural, Ayurvedic, 2-in-1 product that detoxes your liver and keeps you from getting a hangover. Ayurveda starts with prevention!
3. Eye Pack To The Rescue
This Anatomicals eye pack is my absolute favourite. My friend handed some out at her bachelorette party and I’ve kept going back to it ever since. Just throw it in the refrigerator for 30 minutes and then put it on to rest your eyes and under-eyes. After all that heat in your body, you’ll need some cooling.
4. Face Pack, Of Course!
Let’s stick to Ayurveda for this one, too. It’s time to apply the goodness of nature on your face. I’m a big fan of Khadi products and love indulging my skin with this well-priced, fruit face pack.

5. Hydrate Your Skin
Assuming you’ve removed your makeup thoroughly the previous night, it’s time to re-hydrate. And umm, please do remove your makeup. If you haven’t done a thorough job the night before, make sure you exfoliate the next morning. Once you’re done cleansing, apply a 2-in-1 cream like the Clinique Pep Start Hydro Blur Moisturizer. It’s a primer (that reduces the appearance of fine lines) and moisturiser in one.
