St. Patrick’s Day may be a thinly-veiled excuse to get drunk, but don’t blame the Irish for the way your skin looks after a hard night of partying.
Alcohol dehydrates your entire body, which means it makes your skin susceptible to fine lines. But the damage doesn’t stop there—it also creates inflammation, so you’ll notice your skin looking generally duller, even leading to enlarged pores, discoloration, and sagging. Liquor also causes the blood vessels in your skin to widen, which accounts for broken capillaries on your face and a general feeling of warmth.
But the good news is that this damage isn’t permanent, and you can even avoid the look of a binge with products meant to help your skin recover.
Beyond drinking tons of water the day after drinking (not coffee, which will lead to even further dehydration, it’s important to feed your skin with the nutrients it needs to recover.
To combat fine lines and dehydration under your eyes, use our Hydrating Blueberry Hydrogel Eye Patches. The blueberries will help protect your capillaries from damage while the extracts from lemon, grapefruit, orange, and kiwi infuse your skin with antioxidants and anti-inflammatory agents.
To restore balance to your entire face, use our Micro-Hole Hydrogel Collagen Mask. Raspberry ketones will fight free radicals, aloe vera will infuse your skin with the hydration it lost during your night out, and rose extract will add luminosity to help you look refreshed.
Get out there and do some damage…just not to your skin.
