The Oscars: Skincare Tips for Night Owls
Post-party morning alarms are hard. You wake up with dehydrated skin, pasty complexion, drawn features, and dark circles. You can see the lack of sleep on your face when you wake up. So get prepared: don't go to bed without having followed these five skincare tips for beautiful skin the morning after!
1. Take off your makeup
Even though you are extremely tired and would much rather go straight to bed, never forget to take your makeup off. This step in your beauty routine enables you to remove impurities accumulated throughout the evening and lets your skin breathe. The quickest way? Micellar water on some cotton wool and a spritz of water. We recommend the L'Oreal Paris Micellar Water that takes of all your makeup and is gentle on your skin.
2. Hot Bath
Even though you might prefer a quick shower before getting straight into bed, a hot bath will relax your muscles and make it easier to fall asleep. What's more, the steam will dilate your pores, which will make your skincare more effective: every little pore will receive its benefits.
3. Hydrate your skin
Apply a light yet hydrating cream to compensate for all the party food, air conditioning, and lack of sleep, which dry out the skin and make your features look gaunt. The new L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Crystal Micro-Essence is a water-based formula that penetrates up to 10 skin layers to reveal bright, radiant, crystal clear skin. Another of our skincare tips is to use a hydrating mask before going to bed and to keep it on all night for deep nourishment. This way, you can avoid a grey complexion and tired looking features when you wake up.
4. Don’t forget an eye cream
Finish off your beauty routine with an eye contour product like the L'Oreal Paris Revitalift Moisturizing Eye Cream that contains active ingredients that drain bags and reduce dark circles in this fine, fragile area. Tap the area to ensure the product penetrates the skin for the illusion of plumped up skin, with all signs of fatigue erased. Our top tip? Keep your eye contour product in the fridge: the cooler the formula, the more effective it will be in unblocking and draining the area.
5. Drink water
The last of our skincare tips for beautiful skin after a heavy night is to drink a large glass of water or even a herbal tea to hydrate your body and facilitate the elimination of toxins and other excesses from the evening. This is a beauty tip that detoxifies your body, hydrates your system and, as a result, limits the risks of a headache when you wake up.
Parties often involve alcohol and foods that are loaded with salt and sugar, all of which can wreak havoc on your skin. Follow these simple post-party skincare tips to wake up with healthy-looking skin that shows no sign of all the fun you had the previous night.
