Skincare Woes: My Face is Hungover

I may or may not have drunk too much last night......and as such, my face is puffy and gross and I have a lunch date! Urgh. No bother, I'm gonna hit up some of my fave beauty products to ensue my lunch date can keep her food down...... 20140807-104647-38807525.jpg

Scrub scrub scrub.....

Maybe it's a weird self-flagellation thing but a hangover means one thing to me -- exfoliation! I love nothing more than giving my skin an extra deep clean on drowsy days but can't bear a 'scrubby scrub' -- the kind where you feel a bit like the tail end of a Brillo pad. I love Estée Lauder Perfectly Clean Multi Action Gelee (as you can see!) for its gentle scrubbiness. Clinique Rinse Off Foaming Cleanser is also amazing, although not a scrub...it's very deep cleaning.

Get Your Mask On

Then it's time for a mask. I'm a big fan of The Body Shop masks, in particular he Tea Tree and Vitamin E masks.

Moisturise

Lastly, I'm not a huge fan of slathering too many lotions and potions on my face (sensitive and combination skin people!) so I'm keeping it simple with a spritz of Avene Thermal Water and some Vichy Idealia Life Serum (pink, illuminating dreaminess).

Et voila, I look a bit human now.
