Diwali week is always fun, but the post-celebration hangovers seem to get worse as we get older. After a few years of suffering from the skin symptoms of partying too hard (dull skin, exaggerated dark circles, inflammation, and random breakouts) I’ve curated a “post festivities skin survival kit“.
Agreed, a few high-performing products probably won’t solve all your problems, but they’ll certainly help your skin bounce back faster!
Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate
One of the most stoic rules of skincare is to keep yourself hydrated. Alcohol, salty foods, and lots of sweating can cause dehydration, dull skin, and a loss of vitamins and nutrients. But in this new era of wellness, there are a ton of supplements and serums that can speed up the process and hydrate your body from the inside out.
The Korean Marine Collagen Peptide Supplements contain collagen which helps improve skin hydration and elasticity with daily consumption.
Double Cleansing Is A Game Changer
I’ve always been a big fan of double cleansing and tend to do it daily since I struggle with an insane amount of acne even when I’m not partying. I start with the Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm that removes the dirt from the depths of my pores followed with the Bioderma Sebium Gel Moussant that keeps all the excess sebum in check!
Overnight Reinforcement Serums
A gentle overnight serum can leave your skin looking fresh and plump the next day. I strongly recommend the Ordinary Retinol 0.5% In Squalane or the DERMATICA GL Complex Cream.
Take Some Time To De-Puff
One thing that everybody struggles with is puffy eyes after a long night. I’ve gone through my fair share of eye masks and serums and these two are my absolute favs: Pept Eye – Biocellulose 3-Sheet Layer Under Eye Patches and The Ordinary Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG.
Lip Masks For Plump Lips
One thing you should never overlook is lip care. I’m a big fan of the Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask Berry. Make sure to use a gentle scrub before application and leave it on overnight for plump, pink lips that look like they’re straight out of a painting.
With this “post festivities skin survival kit” in hand, you’ll be glowing again in no time!
