Wine Face. It’s a thing now. As I write this, I’m suf­fer­ing from it, hav­ing spent the week­end in Con­nemara at our friends’ wed­ding. Hi, Ni­amh and De­nis!

All al­co­hol is just so de­hy­drat­ing, and this leads to lines and wrin­kles. What­ever you do, don’t look closely at your face the morn­ing af­ter the night be­fore. No­body needs that on top of The Fear.

So the first thing you need to do is put on sun­glasses. You need to get out in the fresh air and get your heart rate up. Pick­ing up a bot­tle of co­conut wa­ter will also help with your hy­dra­tion lev­els, although Bud­dha Wa­ter Hibis­cus, above right, €2.45, made from birch sap, is what all the cool peeps are drink­ing these days.

As well as be­ing ex­cel­lent for re­hy­dra­tion, the mak­ers claim the saponins in the birch-sap wa­ter help to control blood choles­terol lev­els and boost the im­mune sys­tem. An en­ergy drink for your face is needed next, to make you look alive un­der those sun­nies.

Try Too Faced Han­gover Re­plen­ish­ing Face Primer, right, €32. This primer is in­fused with co­conut wa­ter, pro­bi­otic-based in­gre­di­ents, and skin re­vivers to help boost skin’s ra­di­ance, while lock­ing down your make-up for the day.

Wear on its own for a dewy, healthy look, or, if you can face it, un­der foun­da­tion.

Put some colour on your lips too. If your skin is look­ing green, adding a bright colour such as the Too Faced Melted Liqui­fied Long Wear Lip­stick in Fuch­sia, €23 — I’m wear­ing it in my photo, above — will perk your look up and, with the sun­nies on, no one will ever know that you’re ac­tu­ally a wreck!
