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!
