At the end of a long day, nothing is more relaxing than putting your feet up and having a glass of your favorite wine. Drinking is totally fine in moderation but even the occasional sip can leave your skin looking worse for wear.
Experts have spent decades studying the effects of alcohol and skin. After tons of research, they all agree that these are the best ways to fight wrinkles while still enjoying your favorite wine or cocktails.
We aren’t referring to the glasses of water you should be drinking when you indulge in alcohol to keep hydrated. Instead, it’s important to focus on keeping your skin hydrated before and after you consume alcohol. Alcohol can dry out your skin making wrinkles look much worse. If you’re going to sip your glass of wine tonight, make sure that your skincare routine is top of mind before bed and the following morning.
Hydrated skin will not only look younger but will have a smoother texture and add a natural glow to your complexion. Opt for a moisturizer to hydrate your skin that includes nourishing ingredients like coconut oil, shea butter, and argan oil so that even the deeper layers of your skin get hydrated. No matter what you eat or drink the night before, it will help guarantee you wake up with beautiful skin!
Wash It Away
A good cocktail can wash away a stressful day but in order for your skin to look and feel its best, you need to make sure you never skip your cleansing step if you’re indulging in alcohol. When you drink, your face naturally becomes flush and it’s not uncommon to sweat. Sweat from drinking can clog pores and cause puffiness in your face.
Instead of suffering from breakouts and inflammation, opt for an oil cleanser and make sure you’re washing your face with it before going to bed. Not only will it remove makeup and dirt from deep in your pores, but it uses natural ingredients to help calm inflammation so you don’t have to deal with puffy skin after drinking. You’ll wake up with clearer skin, less redness, and fewer wrinkles thanks to the amazing powers of oil cleansers!
Fix Dark Circles
Alcohol consumption has been linked to sleep disruption and if you’re not sleeping right, you’re going to wake up with puffy eyes and dark circles. Nothing can age your face like a compromised eye area so your best defense after drinking is to focus on your eye care routine to bring your skin back to life.
Using an eye serum, like our Eye Recover Serum, helps to relieve dark circles and puffy eyes by utilizing some of the most powerful eye care ingredients available in the USA. Ingredients like Peppermint Oil and Milk Thistle extract work to brighten dark circles and cure puffiness. Even better is that patented peptides like NAD+ and Aldavine will get to work to soften eye wrinkles and fix droopy eyelids so you can get a one-two punch of anti-aging results and a dark circle remedy!
