<3’ING COCK­TAIL o’clock

Cosmopolitan (Philippines) - - Fun, Fearless Beauty -

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.
