After the extra-long Bank Holiday weekend, you may well be feeling the effects of too many street parties and the general air of celebration. While having a good time can do us the world of good, late nights, alcohol or smoke can all leave us with tired, dull skin that looks like it has aged in the space of a few days!
You may find that you have developed fine lines around your eyes, that you skin tone looks uneven or that you have red patches where there were none. These are to be expected if your skin has been deprived of sleep and moisture over the last few days.
So, now that the festivities are over for the time being, make sure you help your complexion recover in preparation for the next load of celebrations once the Olympics hit us!
Hopefully, you will have been sticking to your usual skincare routine over the long weekend, making sure that you at cleanse, tone and moisturise at the very least. Parties usually mean make-up, and it is therefore essential that the skin is thoroughly cleansed every evening.
If you are looking for a real boost for your skin, however, then treat yourself to a Dermalogica masque which will decongest and intensely moisturise your complexion, repair damage and help to protect skin that may have been sensitised or irritated by the late nights.
When you choose your mask, try to match it to your particular skin type if you want to be sure of getting great results: the Multivitamin Power Recovery Masque is perfect for dry or prematurely ageing skin, while the Sebum Clearing Masque is ideal if having a good time tends to lead to breakouts… If you are not sure which masque is best for you, take a look at the range available on Pure Beauty Online or contact one of our experts for advice.
Now, settle down with a magazine (and a glass of water) and let your masque restore your skin to its pre-party splendour!
