So, you partied like there’s no tomorrow and didn’t mind downing one too many cocktails and wines and beers because it’s ok to celebrate once in a while. Totally justified. Somedays we love letting our hair loose, forgetting the aftermath (which is ok too!). We end up with body ache, headache and puffy eyes; courtesy the dance moves and the alcohol circulating in our system.
Well, all of that can be taken care of with a pain reliever, but what about your skin? For that, we have some incredibly easy home remedies that will calm and rejuvenate your dull, hungover skin, and give it back its sheen.

No brownie points for guessing the most obvious remedy for your lacklustre skin. You know you’ve dehydrated your body with alcohol, and the only way to replenish it is by downing a tall glass of water, once before you hit the bed at night and again after you wake up.
Your puffy under-eye skin (all thanks to lack of good sleep and abundance of alcohol!) needs tea bags as a topical remedy. Dip them in hot water and allow them to cool off in the refrigerator before you place them on your eyes. If not that, you could use potato or cucumber cut into thin slices, and place them on your eyes.
An unfortunate effect of alcohol consumption is blotchy and red skin. But hey! You can totally prevent your skin from turning red by applying some soothing aloe vera gel on your face.
Oatmeal is rich in antioxidants and has anti-inflammatory effects. It will fight dry skin as well as battle it out with the redness on your face. Just make a mask using these 3 easily available ingredients and see the magic:
The lactic acid present in milk will work as a gentle peel and honey will hydrate your skin. Apply the mask on your face, leave it for about 10 minutes or until it dries out, and voila!

Try hydrating your skin with a face steam. It will not only open pores to remove grime and dirt, but also stimulate blood circulation. Once you’re done pampering your skin with steam, don’t forget to wash your face with cold water to close the pores.
Although alcohol doesn’t directly result in zits, but it affects the hormones which give you a couple of zits here and there. A quick remedy for them is honey, which has magical antibacterial properties and thus can be used as spot treatment. You can make a Greek yoghurt mask by adding some honey to yoghurt and applying it on your face. It works as a gentle exfoliator and hydrates your skin.
Now that we have given you all these easy hacks, it’s up to you to decide which of these you’re going to vouch for. And, probably the next time you will have some of these stacked in your kitchen to save you from dull and dehydrated skin after a crazy party night!
