How to recover: the next morning

Woken up at a friends house after a night of blur looking less than ideal? Here are a few quick and natural methods to get you not only feeling refreshed, but looking it to.

Here's how:

Are you suffering from a puffy face? Cucumber or a tea bag can help. The moisture from soaking a cucumber in icy water for around 10 minutes then applying thick slices over your eyes, is great for reducing the puffy skin around our eye area. Tea bags are able to help reduce swelling in our face by soothing the swelling of the blood vessels and also helps shrink them back to their original size.

Natural Makeup Remover. A lot of the store purchased make up remover wipes can actually cause irritation and thus break outs on our skin due to the chemicals they contain. If you've woken up looking like a panda and need a quick fix, here are a few suggestions.

Milk: apply some milk to a cotton ball (or clean tissue paper) and apply it to your face. Wash it off afterwards to take away and makeup residue remaining.
  • Olive oil: Olive oil is great for breaking down makeup. Apply 2-3 tablespoons of it onto a cotton ball (or clean tissue paper) for around 2 minutes will work wonders in getting rid of water proof mascara and other stubborn make up stains.

Facial Mask: Bananas! This works great and you can eat the leftovers! Mash up 1/2 banana with 3-4 tablespoons of milk. Apply this to your face and leave for approximately 6-8 minutes. This will leave your skin feeling soft and refreshed

Bed Hair? Work a Ballerina bun. If your hair is oily or just not co-operating I'd suggest working an up do. Nothing too tricky or OTT. A high messy bun will work fine to hide oily, disgruntled hair. Don't try to much to make it look neat and perfect. This tends to have the opposite effect.

Making do with what you have: The purpose of this post was to give you some ideas/ tricks to last you until your next shower basically. Work with what you have around and incorporate it into your strategy. You don't have to be in recovery mode from a big night out to try these tips.
