Glowing Skin Hacks for the Day of a Big Event
The Oscars are this Sunday and although you may be watching from the comfort of your own couch rather than attending, there are plenty of skincare hacks you can steal from the stars for your own big days. On the day of a major event, you should take a three-pronged approach of activity, diet and skincare to prep:
Activity: Start the morning with light exercise for an energy boost, to increase blood circulation for a healthy glow, and to keep your metabolism active throughout the day.
Diet: Staying uber-hydrated and avoiding foods that cause bloating are key if you’ll be sliding in to a black tie dress and want your skin in tip-top shape. Things to avoid: salt, sugar, grains and alcohol. Fill up on lean protein, fresh veggies and healthy fats instead.
Skincare: In terms of topical skincare, don’t do anything aggressive that would strip or inflame the skin, such as using acids or drying agents. Instead, stick with pampering and hydrating products and treatments. A hydrating mask the night before a big event can do wonders!
