A Very Effective Hangover Skincare Routine

A Very Effective Hangover Skincare Routine

Picture this: Saturday morning. Pounding head. Dry mouth. Skin screaming for help thanks to the three (five?) Negronis you had last night.


Presenting: The Hangover Face Fix. Five essential steps to get your face looking fresh, no matter what you did last night.

1. Cleanse!

Clean face = the first step to a fresh, dewy base. Remove all that makeup you definitely thought about taking off last night. Properly Clean is extremely gentle so it won’t disrupt your skin but it will get rid of all that makeup, grime, and hangxiety. Or, if you feel like an extra boost of nourishment is in order, opt for an oil cleanser instead to replenish as you remove.

2. Sheet Mask!

Once your face is all lovely and clean, it's time to pop on a (refrigerated) sheet mask. A hydrating, sheet mask is basically a triple shot espresso for sleepy skin. They soothe redness and instantly plump up your skin, leaving you with a face far more alive than you deserve.

We recommend Transformazing (obviously) because we made it but also because it works. Pop it in the fridge before use for an extra kick.

3. Hydrate!

Then hydrate some more! Alcohol is a filthy moisture thief. It’s notorious for causing dehydration, the arch nemesis of glowing skin, and the cause of a killer headache. We desperately want to avoid that if possible so have some water (or Powerade if you have it on hand) and guzzle it. Fast.

Tip! If you remember to hydrate before you go to bed, the morning after will be a whole lot less painful. Before you head out leave a full bottle on your bedside table and make sure you drink as much as possible prior to drifting off.

4. De-Puff!

With the teaspoon trick! Pop a couple of teaspoons in the freezer before you jump into the shower. After you are all sheet masked and moisturised press the chilled spoons firm against the skin under your eyes. Hold for a few minutes to play down puffiness and regret, and remove. Voila!

5. Makeup!

The last step is 100% optional but should you feel like your face is still a little lifeless it can be a very effective way to brighten everything up.

Important: Dewy, glowy products only today. No matte, powdery stuff, please. Face Hero and a tinted moisturiser are powerful weapons for faking a fresh face. (Also helpful: bright lipstick and a tube of a good-coverage creamy concealer.)

You’ve done it! Rejoice! Now all there’s left to do is grab some greasy food, swear (lie?) you’ll Never Drink Again and get on with your day.
