Too Many Parties? How to Save Your Skin

The holidays and excess go hand-in-hand. Even if you start the season with the best of intentions, it’s easy to give in to the temptation of late nights, limitless sweets and other complexion catastrophes. That’s OK! Rodan + Fields product expert Mary Radford, RN, shares how to get your good skin back after you’ve overindulged:

Before You Go

Drink a lot of water.
“An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, so think ahead and prepare for the festivities,” Mary says. Keep your skin (and the rest of you) happy by drinking a glass of water before you walk out the door. Once you’re at your event, if you are drinking alcohol, have a glass of water after every drink.

Have a healthy snack.
You’re more likely to overdo it at the buffet or dessert table if you arrive with an empty stomach. “Eat some protein and greens before the party to keep your stamina up and minimize overindulging in food or drinks,” says Mary.

Pamper your skin.
Our Active Hydration trio of products — Active Hydration Serum, Active Hydration Bright Eye Complex and Active Hydration Body Replenish — offer immediate and lasting hydration and help keep your skin looking younger and more radiant. “The possibility of running into your ex at a holiday party makes this combination a must!” Mary says.

When You Get Home

Wash. Your. Face.
Mary gets it: You’re exhausted. “Exercising your social butterfly wings can take its toll,” she says. Still, she always recommends using your full Regimen. Make the job easier by using ESSENTIALS Instant Makeup Removing Wipes and Complete Eye Makeup Remover before you cleanse. If you’ve got the energy, “Layering Active Hydration Serum into your Regimen will help you look more perky than you’ll feel in the morning.” Now go to sleep!

The Morning After

Fake being awake.
If your face is showing fatigue, Mary suggests avoiding dark clothes and makeup. “Lighten up with peach, pink, light blue, white or cream to look pulled-together and awake,” she says. And get an immediate glow with Rodan + Fields Radiant Defense Perfecting Liquid. “It makes your skin look flawless!”

Brighten your eyes.
Puffy, tired-looking eyes tip people off to the fact you’ve been out too late. Mary advises applying Active Hydration Bright Eye Complex to visibly improve dark circles and puffiness, and REDEFINE Multi-Function Eye Cream to improve the appearance of lines and loss of firmness. “I use both!” Mary says. “Party? What party?”
