How to hide a hangover



1. Hydrate!

I cannot stress this enough. Water, Hydralyte, Berocca - whatever you can keep down. There are only so many sins topically applied products can disguise without a little moisture boost from within.  

2. Exfoliate

After cleansing and removing any leftover eye makeup, make friends with an exfoliator so that your face cream and/or serum have a chance to penetrate the skin and perform properly. Try Alpha-H’s Gentle Daily Exfoliant which utilises water-activated fruit enzymes derived from Papaya and Pineapple to brighten the complexion and dislodge dead skin cells clogging your pores. With zero abrasion it’s perfect for a sore head!

3. Plump

Now you want to apply a plumping and hydrating serum like our Liquid Gold Perfecting Daywear. This product is rich in Hyaluronic Acid which attracts and binds precious moisture to the skin; helping to swell surface cells and plump out fine lines and wrinkles to give skin a fresh, youthful appearance. It also contains self adjusting mineral beads for some added glow and warmth.  

4. Protect

Although you’re hung over you can’t skip wearing an SPF moisturiser! Alpha-H’s Daily Essential Moisturiser SPF 30+ is ultra light weight, sweat resistant, water resistant and combines five high protection filters and skin preserving antioxidants, which breaks new ground in UV protection by being superlight, touch-dry and non-whitening.

Pro Tip: Eye drops are always a great idea the morning after to brighten those peepers! Then pop on some Absolute Eye Complex gel to combat bags and dark shadows.

5. Perfect

Make sure you apply a primer before putting on your makeup as this is your best shot at creating a radiant finish when skin is looking lacklustre. For the love of skincare DO NOT use a powder foundation as this will settle into any fine lines and make the skin look tired and old. After completing your make up, finish with a spritz of the Moisture Boosting Facial Mist and voila, dewy fresh looking I-had-eight-hours-sleep skin is yours!  

Pro tip: A light-handed swirl of MAC’s Mineralize Skinfinish in ‘Soft and Gentle’ from the brow bone down to the top of the cheekbone is always a good idea for faking a faux glow.
