It’s that time of year where desk prosecco and late nights become the norm, combined with all the amazing Christmas food that’s surrounding us constantly, our skin can take a bit of a battering!

You’ve had a great night, knocked back one too many glasses of sauvignon and you’re definitely not alone… but now we can barely keep our eyes open come 8am and falling asleep sat up.

We’ve decided to put together our top tips to make it LOOK at though you’re feeling all bright and sparky when, in reality, you’re definitely not…

  1. Wash your face

Chances are you got home stupidly late last night and didn’t run through your usual 3 step skincare routine. We’ve all been there! But this is horrendous for your skin, to make up for it now, use a really good quality cleanser to give your face a good wash. Getting rid of all the makeup and grime is the perfect place to start to help make your skin look a little fresher.

  • Rehydrate

We all know alcohol is super dehydrating, it literally robs your skin of any moisture and in turn makes you look dull, dry and tired. Make sure in the morning you’re getting as much water into your body as possible, it’s also a great idea to include electrolytes. They are a blend of sodium and minerals which help your body hold onto water. Coconut water is full of natural electrolytes so that’s a great choice!

  • Moisturise

Get that big moisture hit straight into your skin! Hydrating is the key component to recovering from a hangover so using a thick, ultra-hydrating moisturiser on your face will help give your skin a pick me up.

  • Eye Treatment

Tired, puffy and red eyes are a huge tell-tale sign of a hangover. Find yourself a fatigue busting eye cream that has lots of vitamin c in it, this will help make your eyes look a bit brighter!

  • Use a primer before makeup

With a hangover you might want to slap on some makeup before you leave the house to conceal any sins. Using a primer before your foundation will help in the steps to hide any imperfection. Particularly a hydrating primer will help keep your skin hydrated throughout the day as well as giving you a smoother base.

  • Concealer is your best friend

Concealer is the one product you can’t live without when trying to hide a hangover. It works to hide any under eye bags, cover pesky blemishes and colour correct dullness. Look for a creamy concealer that is hydrating and brightening.

  • Choose a bold lip

The best tip to hide a hangover is adding a bold lip! Distraction is the best form of concealment!
