5 Beauty Rituals to Help You Recover from #NYFW
Sep 15, 2011 - by Amanda Gabriele
Caffeine overload. Too many free drinks. No sleep - all tidbits that come along with a successful Fashion Week. Now that we're entering into the last day of shows, it's time to think about our under-eye bags and dehydrated skin. If you're not sure how to pamper yourself after a hard week's work, here are 5 beauty rituals to help you recover from #NYFW. You'll be looking rested and de-puffed in no time.
Renew - When skin is neglected, the outer layer that you see becomes dry and dull. A skin renewing product like SK-II Facial Treatment Essence helps stimulate the regeneration of the outer layer for smoother, more radiant skin.
Detox - Pores get clogged with all types of toxins, and Fashion Week's hectic routine doesn't help to keep them clear. An antioxidant-rich mask can exfoliate, unclog pores, balance and energize the skin. Fortunately, Pangea Organics Japanese Matcha Tea with Acai & Goji Berry Facial Mask does all of the above and more.
Moisturize - Your skin has been screaming at you all week for a damn drink sans alcohol, and it's time to indulge its request. A lightweight moisturizer with skin brightening properties like Julique Purely White Skin Brightening Day Cream does the job while evening skin tone and reducing the appearance of discolorations.
No really, moisturize - You know how to hydrate and brighten your skin during the day, but while you're sleeping is when skin really loses the precious moisture that keeps you looking young and fresh. Not only does Borghese Dolce Notte Re-Energizing Night Creme return dehydrated skin to a normal, healthy state while you sleep, it encourages cell regeneration for a radiant glow.
De-puff eyes - You've been downing Red Bulls and Starbucks all week to keep your eyes open, and now they're hopelessly sagging from a serious lack of rest. It's time to brighten, de-puff and hydrate your eyes so those dark, droopy bags disappear. Bliss Triple Oxygen Instant Energizing Eye Mask gets the job done with vitamin C and cucumber extract.
