Just in case your skin needs survival tips this party season, we’ve taken it upon ourselves to draw up a masking routine on steroids. Your makeup will go on smoother and your skin will never look hungover (we can’t say the same about you though!)
‘Tis the season…to attend a gazillion weddings and holiday parties. Your face needs external help to cope with the relentless onslaught of sugar and alcohol, if it’s to look its best under all that makeup.
We have a major routine set up, which in the beauty industry we call the masktravaganza. It’s a month-long celebration of the muddiest, the creamiest, the charcoaliest face masks we can find. This hyper-routine ensures our party faces are as good as our party game, (which is always A+, for the record.)
But a word of caution: Try out the entire routine a few months before you start this season kicks in. A month before the parties begin is not the ideal time to experiment with a new exfoliant or to try out that spa you’ve been meaning to—do that well in advance. If everything works perfectly and your skin seems happy, you know you have a winning routine in place.
