<3’ING COCKTAIL o’clock
More than two drinks can be a buzzkill for skin. Alcohol creates free radicals and increases inflammation. It’s also a diuretic and a vasodilator, leaving skin dry, puffy, and flushed. Social smoker? You’ll likely wake up to a washed-out or grayish skin tone. “Just one cigarette drastically reduces the oxygen levels in your skin, hindering circulation,” says Dr. Graf.
A cocktail of super-potent antioxidants (like vitamins B, C, and E—in Olay’s moisturizer, right) will neutralize free radicals before they can do damage. Also, in the a.m., pop an anti-inflammatory ibuprofen to reduce the flush in your face, says Dr. Brandt. To help skin rebound from smoke-induced oxygen loss, reach for a serum rich in saccharomyces lysate (in Avon’s, right), a yeast extract that helps restore cell respiratory function, says Dr. Graf.
