Life is all about balance. You must work hard and live well, but you also must reward yourself with a girl’s night out with your girl friends. Whether you are celebrating a birthday, holiday, or just enjoying a night out with the ladies, your celebratory cocktails will leave your skin and body looking and feeling less than its best in the morning. Turn to these beauty recovery tips below to help your skin recover ASAP.
Before The Fun Begins
If you know you will be heading out tonight, eat Supa healthy during the day, and increase your hydration. This will help to balance out the dehydrating effects of overconsumption. Also, eat before or as you drink. However, the Extra Supa Tip is to continue drinking one tumbler glass of water for every drink you order. I know, this is tricky when doing shots! Even if it’s not an exact science, keep a glass or bottle of water nearby all night long. Greatist provides a few additional tips for hydrating while drinking.
When You Come Home
I know, the last thing you want to do after a night out is tend to your skin. However, this step is one of the most important steps after a night of overindulgence. Before you head to bed, wash your face, moisturize, and drink 2-3 tumbler glasses of water—or another hydrating beverage like natural coconut water. The good news is these tips only take a few minutes, and effectively help your body to begin the rehydration and repair process.
The Next Day
Aim to sleep in as much as possible, but between work and your Supa busy schedule, you may not be able to. Start the morning with a refreshing shower, and, at least, another 2-3 tumbler glasses of hydrating fluids. Eat something, even if it is light, so your body has the energy required to begin the repair process—and take an over-the-counter pain reliever if needed. If you see that your eyes are red, use an over-the-counter eye drop. If your eyes are puffy, ease puffiness with cold cucumber, a cold spoon, or a refrigerated eye mask.
- Set up everything you need the night before.
- Take off your make up before you go to bed and avoid the temptation to overdo your makeup the next day. Even if it is to disguise your hangover, too much makeup will only make things worse.
- Have a cold shower in the morning and eat and drink something as soon as you can
- Last but not least, try to stick to the same family of alcohol all night; drink wine all night, drink cocktails made with the same liquor, or drink the same drink all night.
