With the weekend ahead of us and National Margarita Day on the 22nd, things might get a little rowdy in your schedule. After the long week of work, we all deserve to go out and relax or party! But by the time Monday swings around, you're gonna need to fix that hangover ASAP. Today's article will offer you tips and tricks on how-to beat the 'feat of no sleep and deal with the wrath of grapes. Pep in your Step:
Pep-start Eye Cream by Clinique is the perfect solution for those days when you've got major bags and can't seem to keep your eyes open. Its formula helps de-puff, hydrate, & brighten your eyes in a snap. With ingredients like algae (helps heal your skin and get rid of wrinkles), magnolia officinalis bark (to reduce inflammation), & sapindus mukurossi fruit extract (treats skin) you'll be bright eyed and bushy tailed in no time!
Get Up & Sweat Up:
Even though it may seem tough, getting out of bed and going for a run or quick workout is actually very beneficial. By moving around and sweating, your body will release some of its toxins, and will leave you feeling detoxed and cleaner inside. If you're not much of an athlete then try a dance tutorial video. It's fun, will motivate you and get you moving while picking up some new moves as well! H2 Oh!:
It's true, the most important thing to keep in mind is to hydrate, hydrate, hydrate! Water is a miracle drink; it cleans, has no calories or unhealthy contents, & won't break your bank. Sip some throughout your day and night and your body, especially your skin, will show great results.
Light it Up:
If you are a makeup maven and your motto is "conceal, don't feel", then try the Universal Stick from Make Beauty. It works on your lips and cheeks, bringing color to your face and giving you a warm and natural glow. Also 10% of their sales goes towards the We See Beauty Foundation, which is a non-profit organization that supports women-led businesses.
Some foods that help with hangovers are bananas and oats. Try making oatmeal, and add some of this fruit to create a healthy and wholesome breakfast. For a bit of sweetness put some honey or agave nectar into the mix. With a boost of potassium and some protein, you'll be able to get back on your feet.
It's everybody's favorite thing to do on those lazy days- sleep! After a long night, it's great to come home and chill in a comfy bed. My favorite sheets are from Casper Sleep Inc. (click the phrase to go to their site!). This dream team designs mattresses, sheets, & pillows to help you get your best nights' sleep. Their mattresses are made of bouncy latex and high-density memory foam, making it the perfect balance to sleep on. Highly renowned and humble, this brand makes nap time, happy time and will make you feel like you're on cloud nine!
Enjoy your weekend and National Margarita Day on February 22nd!
Stay chic ;)
