Post Indulgence Recovery Cosmetics!

As nice as it is to indulge over special occasions such as Christmas, New Year, Valentines and Easter, many of us find ourselves in a worse state afterwards than what we were in before! 

Yup, these festivities can be a killer all right, but fortunately, our favourite cosmetics are on hand to jump-start our recovery and have us looking a million dollars again, even if we don’t exactly feel tip-top!

– Skin

While all the rich food, alcohol and inactivity of our celebratory weekends may feel like a welcome change from the working week, our skin is unlikely to be quite so grateful for these indulgences. Your complexion isn’t going to be at its best about now, but with our holy trinity of budget cosmetic products, you can get it back on track in no time…

– Facial Cleanser

The skin on your face is very sensitive, and washing it with soap or shower gel will only dry it out and cause further irritation. A soap-free facial cleanser will clean and reinvigorate the skin on your face – never apply makeup without giving your skin a cleanse first!

– Moisturiser

Most skin complaints and imperfections can be tackled with a decent skincare routine, and moisturisers should be a major part of that routine. Choose the right moisturiser for your skin type and apply every time you wash your face – before you apply your makeup and before you go to bed in particular.

– Concealer

Concealer will hide a multitude of sins, and can be used to revamp your appearance while your skin is given time to recover. Choose a product which closely matches the natural tone of your skin, and use to disguise blemishes, spots and discoloured areas in lieu of foundation.

– Eyes

All those parties and celebrations probably leave you feeling a little worse for wear, and more often than not, it shows. They say the eyes are the windows to the soul, and you don’t want anyone to see an exhausted woman the next time they peer into yours! Fortunately, your tired, bloodshot party eyes can be spruced up quickly and relatively easily. Invest in a soothing skincare product to reduce the redness and irritation that causes puffiness and redness around the eyes – sure-fire signs of tiredness and overindulgence! Don’t forget to moisturise these delicate areas too, and cover up any lasting ill-effects with a gentle under eye concealer.

Post-celebration cosmetics can often feel like a salvage operation, but once you have yourself approaching your old self again, you can build on this stepping stone and use our other budget cosmetic products to create the glamorous looks you know and love. In the meantime, let’s be thankful that these holidays come but once a year – even though there’s a different one every few months.
