How To Repair Your Skin When You’re Hungover & Beyond Dehydrated

Getting in a lot of holiday cheer? In addition to a pounding headache, over-indulging in alcohol will severely dehydrate the skin, resulting in skin tightness/dryness and puffiness the next morning. Here are my expert skincare tips to get your skin looking and feeling better in no time.

1. Use Hydrating Ingredients to Deliver Water Back Into Thirsty Skin Cells

When their skin is parched, most people tend to reach for a rich moisturizer and slather it on. But since drinking alcohol mostly depletes water, the focus needs to be on putting water back into the skin, not oil. Hyaluronic acid, sodium hyaluronate, and sodium PCA are all great ingredients to quench thirsty skin cells and restore them to a healthier state. 

You can find these in water-based products like Hyaluronic acid serums. Your skin can’t get enough hydration today! Hyaluronic acid serums is a super hydrating serum that works really well. It’s a great way to completely reset the skin.

2. Perform a Cold Ice Water Splash to Reduce Facial Puffiness

I love this trick, here’s how to do it:

Step 1: Fill your bathroom sink with cold water and toss in 15 ice cubes.

Step 2: Pour 1/3 of a cup of natural witch hazel into the water. Try to use one that is alcohol-free such as Balancing Skin Tonic.

Step 3: Dunk your face (yes, dunk, don’t just splash) in and out ten times.

How does it get rid of puffiness? Cold temperatures shrink capillaries and stimulate drainage, while witch hazel has natural anti-inflammatory, puffiness-reducing properties. It also might provide some relief for your headache. (If you don’t have any witch hazel on hand, then just dunk your face into the cold ice water.)

3. Wash Your Face and Perform Your Morning Routine

Depending on what time you got in at night, there’s a chance that you may not wash your face. If you didn’t, do it right away as your skin will get instantly refreshed when it’s clean. Plus, your eyes will feel so much better when your sticky, clumpy mascara is removed. 

Use cleanser to cleanse your skin. Don’t have this cleanser? No problem! Get some peppermint, spearmint, or eucalyptus essential oils, and add one drop into the palm of your hand and mix it into your cleanser.

4. Massage the Under-Eye Area

Tired, hungover eyes will usually appear puffy and have dark circles. Dab a small amount of eye cream and using circular motions with your fingertip, massage the entire under-eye area. This will stimulate stagnant blood flow that can contribute to darkness and reduce excess fluid. 

If you have Vitamin C Cream/ 24k Gold Serum, use it— it goes to work immediately to help brighten up the appearance of tired, puffy eyes.

Bonus Tip: Next Time, Re-Think Your Drink of Choice

To help prevent a hangover, choose your drinks wisely. A bartender once told me that the healthiest drink is to have vodka or tequila with water and a few lemons squeezed in to give some flavor. 

She believes that cocktails with less sugar (and in this case, virtually none, other than from the lemons) may result in less of a hangover. She said that sweeter drinks tend to mask the alcohol’s flavors, causing taste buds to need more, which inadvertently encourages you to drink more. 

Regardless, less sugar in drinks means fewer calories and, technically, you’re hydrating the body with water, right? It’s my go-to drink when I go out. In addition, I try to follow every drink I consume with an 8 oz glass of water to mitigate unnecessary morning dehydration.
