It’s a big night out, and you want to look your best — but you also want your skin to survive the night and not look like death warmed up in the morning. So what’s the best pre-night out skin prep?
According to Balanced Babe, it’s surprisingly simple to look red carpet (even if it’s just a pub carpet!) ready for your night out.
Here’s just some of the pre-night out skin care tips suggested…
- SLEEP! – Get as much sleep as you can so that you don’t have bags under your eyes and so that you skin doesn’t look dull and tired.
- Spot treatment – Use a spot treatment to treat any pesky blemishes over night so that you are clear and radiant for your big day.
On the day:
- Chill your eye cream in the fridge during the day of your big event. Before you put on your makeup, give yourself a quick eye massage with the chilled cream. Massage and tap the area under your eyes to de-puff under eye bags to reveal brighter and more awake peepers.
- In the morning, apply some self tanner like St. Tropez to your arm, legs and decolletage, and use a self tanning face cream to give yourself a nice bronze by the evening.
- Drink water throughout the day to stay hydrated and keep your skin supple.
- Before you get ready – soak in an Epsom salt bath to help drop excess water weight. Pour 3 cups of Epsom salt into hot water and let it sit for a bit before your soak in the bath for 10-15 minutes.
- Before you apply makeup, massage in a fine line smoothing face serum to help the application of your foundation smooth on seamlessly.
