We’ve all been there. You’ve made it home, you’ve eaten your obligatory post-booze kebab, and you’ve finally crawled into bed, only to realise that you still have your makeup on. The bathroom may as well be on the other side of the globe at that point tbh, BUT, sleeping with makeup on is a huge cause of hangover skin. It can cause dullness, skin congestion, and can lead to breakouts. If you can’t face your usual skincare routine (we feel you), try keeping some cotton pads and a water-less cleanser, such as micellar water, by your bed.
How to deal with ‘hangover skin’ if you spent a little *too* much time in the beer gardens last week
We counted down the minutes. We planned our outfits weeks in advance. At times, we thought the day might never actually arrive. But, hallelujah, the 12th finally rolled around, and we were officially allowed back in that sacred British institution – the beer garden.
Cut to one week later, and there is a small chance that you may have over-indulged a little. Hey, we’re right there with you, and we won’t judge. Your skin, on the other hand, might be feeling less than impressed.
If the visible effects of this week’s antics are showing on your face (we’re talking puffiness, dehydration, and breakouts to name a few), then you might just be suffering from a case of ‘hangover skin’.
Luckily, we are on hand with the beauty equivalent of your tried and tested ‘Full English and an ibuprofen’ hangover cure. Keep reading for our tips on how to bring your hangover skin back to life.
