Have You Had a Hard Night?
It’s that time of year again. You’re social calendar is chocker; the booze, food and fun are flowing; and just upon the horizon are a collection of bank holidays for you to look upon with childish glee.
It’s Christmas boys, and we all need a few hints and tips to get us through the party season.
Here’s Drakes Survival guide written by our own party hard team:Your skin is the first thing to show your sins. Give it an instant lift by exfoliating. It takes seconds to slough away the dehydrated skin cells that are dulling your complexion. Go the extra mile by slapping a bit of moisturiser on. It’ll work wonders.
An excellent tip from Phil; (who we all know has had many a hard night) is ‘waterless shampoo’. Yes that is right, search high and low for this wonder product and it’ll be your life saver when you’re rolling into work from the night before. Lather it up like normal shampoo ‘sans water’ and towel dry. It removes all odours, leaving your hair fresh and clean.
A tried and tested and personal fave of Rachel’s: Whack your specs on. It hides a multitude of sins. And if you don’t have trusty specs; eye drops!
Realistically you’re a little hung over; coordination isn’t great and your boss doesn’t want to greet you first thing the day after the night before with patches of tissue all over your face. Grow it out. Embrace the beard. Who knows, someone at the office party may have a thing for the woodsman look.
Now, you have a couple of options to battle the heavy duty dark circles ever intensifying as the season rolls on. Firstly you could invest in an eye cream. The girls have been using this trick for years and there’s no reason why you shouldn’t either. It rehydrates crepey skin, stimulates circulation and if you invest in a good one it won’t just be a quick fix you will get long lasting anti aging results. Dermalogica’s Ultracalming Eye Serum is a great product to beat all the signs of a late night.
The second option comes from our lovely Jennie who assure us this is an old age German wives tale that works! Grab a cold teaspoon, (preferably that has been sitting in the freezer) and pop it on your under eye for a few seconds. It apparently ‘brightens and tightens’ which sounds pretty good to us!
Lastly. Get a good hair cut boys! If you’re looking sharp when you go to party, it’s definitely going to increase your chances of looking half decent the next day!
So that is our guide to surviving the party season. You now have the tricks of the trade, (or tricks of the partiers) to help you glide through to New Years Day. And to help you on your way, come and grab a beer with your cut.
Merry Christmas from us!
