A Night Out Vs Your Skin

A Night Out Vs Your Skin
Friday, April 26, 2019

Parties or gatherings are the best to let loose and have the time of your lives.It all appears to be fun and games until you come home and wake up the next day - You’re having a hangover, your body feels tired, and worst of all your appearance isn’t spared! Here are 4 after-partying effects and how to deal with them.

1. Dehydration 

Having alcoholic drinks and treating yourself to greasy food will inevitably lead to water loss in your body, leading to your skin drying up and feeling parched. Hence, the skin is more prone to flakiness and looking dull the morning after.

Besides, alcohol leads to the body losing water through its diuretic properties and causing nausea, so your skin and body will inevitably have more fluids lost.

Solution: Besides hydrating yourself after the party by drinking more water, treat yourself to a quick moisturising and cleansing treatment before you knock out from your drinking activities. We would recommend The Herb Farm Hydrating Overnight Mask, a creamy face mask that deeply hydrates your skin overnight so you wake up to soft, radiant and nourished skin.

2. Premature Aging

Drinking contributes heavily to premature aging of the skin. In short, besides dehydration of the skin, there will harsher emphasis on the fine lines and wrinkles on the face.

Solution: Use anti-aging products that help to correct the signs of aging. Try Uriage Age Protect range. The skincare range acts on both signs of aging and daily aggressions damaging the skin. It reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and combats loss of firmness and lack of plumpness.

3. Breakouts

Alcohol affects hormone levels in your body, which causes your skin producing more sebum. This leads to the skin as well as your scalp becoming more prone to breaking out. Hence, leading to the onset of problems such as acne, inflammation, and increase of blackheads and whiteheads.

Solution: You’ll have to cleanse your face regularly to remove the excess oil from your skin. Apart from that, use oil-control skincare products such as CHORUS Supernatural CLARIFY. The oil-free, fast absorbing moisturiser is suitable for skin prone to acne, blemishes, and oiliness. Hydrating and refreshing, it absorbs excess oils, refines skin texture, and reduces the appearance of enlarged pores without drying the skin.

4. Drier Hair

Dehydration in skin does not only affect your skin, it affects your hair as well. The build-up of hair products throughout the outings and parties, not to mention your sweaty scalp, adds on the increased dehydration already caused by consuming alcohol. This inevitably decreases your zinc and protein production. What’s the result - Brittle and coarse hair.

Solution: Since alcohol could lead to the decrease zinc production, use a shampoo thats rich in zinc of course! Try Dr. Forhair Folligen Shampoo. The shampoo helps to purify clogged scalp pores caused by dandruff, excessive oil and residue of hair products.

Would it not be more enjoyable if our body did not have to enjoy the consequences of letting loose while partying? However, with the proper beauty care for our skin and hair, we can have the best of both worlds!
