your skincare party prep routine
Yep, it's that time of year again
We have been hibernating for far too long, this holiday season, this Summer, it’s time to celebrate YOU!
Party season is officially underway, it can be a super fun time of year, but it can also be exhausting. Back to back events, too much bubbly, all the driving in between, a late night or three, too much bubbly, family get togethers, dance floor shenanigans, and, too much bubbly.
The party season calendar is brimming with events, so let's boost your natural luminosity with these easy peasy tips to help you feel fresh and get that glowing complexion long after the hangover subsides.
Here are our top tips for the party season, so you can look and feel fantastic with glowing skin for that big event!
Two weeks prior to the party season kick-off
Hey Ho Hydration
Get hydrated as things begin to kick off. It's no secret that drinking alcohol frequently, even if you are only having one or two glasses, causes your skin to become inflamed and dehydrated. Get prepared, refill your water bottle and grab your hydrating hero pal, a few drops in the am and pm and damn you'll be feeling so fierce.
Up your H2O intake then calm your senses and treat your skin to a nourishing face mask. Light a candle, have a bath, the whole shtick.
Loaded with a souped-up mix of Omega 3s from Hemp, Green Tea and Aloe Vera, this mask is perfect for soothing redness, blemishes and breakout-prone skin, BNB Hemp clay mask is your party, ready saviour. Paying special attention to dry skin, smooth those fine lines and wrinkles and provide redness soothing radiance, protect your skin this festive season as you get party ready.
Get Party preppin' (day of party)
Full body baby! Let's start with that lush pout. We absolutely love our chai lip scrub, there is nothing worse than leaning in for that New Years eve pash only to realise your lips feel like sandpaper (and if their lips feel like sandpaper, feel free to sling them some scrub too!) So scrub up to get you in that party mood.
Next up, after what felt like the longest Locky D of all time (am I right Melbourne?!), you may want to give your body a little extra boost. Exfoliate those dead skin cells into oblivion and uncover your natural luminosity with our perfect for all skin Bellini pre-tan prep, get glowing and float away with tropical island vibes as you wistfully envision yourself sipping cocktails, footloose and fancy-free.
You've washed, scrubbed, potentially tanned and done a little happy dance as you embrace your healthy, luminous skin, you're now ready to level up. The next step on the party preppin' list is our Body Glow, for illustrious, bright, don't forget to treat yourself to a little shimmer, shine and glow. This little beauty will boost your mood and have you feeling ready for that big night!
We think you look fierce and gorgeous exactly as you are, so if you decide to wear make-up or not, you really cannot forget the impeccable skincare duo, fresh face toner and Mister Brightside face oil. The perfect foundation for simply happy skin or for applying your makeup and making sure it stays until the sun comes up. Packed with vitamin C, you'll be laughing all the way to the bottom of your nightcap champers.
It's super simple. Follow this pre-party prep skincare routine.
Tip: Take a moment for the oil to settle. Your face oil will help your makeup glide on seamlessly and give your skin that extra dewy glow. Hydrate, cleanse, tone and oil up, achieve a glowing youthful energy that will last all night long.
When you think the party has ended but you still have more dance left in the tootsies. What would party season be without the afterparty! Shimmy and shake until the morning light and once you finally arrive home, get naked and get in the shower. Scrub your festive and fabulous body from head to toe with our coffee + epsom body scrub. Packed with magnesium to help you get a good nights rest, and bursting with peppermint to help get the blood flow back into dancing feet!
Now that you're almost ready to jump amongst the covers for a glorious night (or morning) of sleep, don't let your day-old mascara ruin your sweet dreams. Hit up the double cleansing kit. Wash and cleanse away the day, late nights and any residual lingering makeup (including that sauce from the 3am pizza slice). Boost your complexion whilst you slip into bed, cleanse, nourish, hydrate and wake up with healthy-looking, luminous skin (even if your camera roll says otherwise).
Exfoliate your bod with a scrub
Double Cleanse your face
Hydration serum or treatment
Are you a morning hangover or morning carpe diem type?
Sleep is paramount in ensuring your skin repairs overnight and, whether you spring outta bed (we all know at least one of these people), or roll outta bed after midday (with your hair looking birds nest chic), pampering your skin is essential. No matter your skin type and no matter the night before shenanigans, give your skin and hair that extra little TLC.
Rejuvenate and Hydrate
What you need is a little rejuvenation after your big night. Banish those telling under eye dark circles, and oily skin, tend to your t zone, restore your senses and collagen production, reset and recharge. Make a cuppa, throw on a face mask.
And hang on a sec, let's not forget your crown, long hair, short hair, buzzcut, bald - lather your tired scalp with an epic oil treatment, crawl back into that comfy boudoir and send a snap to your gal pals because #selfcare.
Refresh under eyes will and caffeine-based under eye oil.
Give your face a detox with a rose face mask.
Treat your tootsies
As you soak up the magic of some rest, you may even want to treat your tootsies to a little lovin' with our nudist repair balm. Notice any other dry bits on the way? This balm will have you feeling soft and smooth and ready just in time for the next adventure. We keep nudist balm on our bedside table because ain't nobody got time for scaly skin.
Protect your peepers
Are your eyes still a little puffy? You'd think three espresso martinis would have you wide-eyed and bushy-tailed right?! If only that's how it worked. At least the search for amazing eye care is easier than the search for a soulmate. De-puff and hydrate the windows to your soul, make this a regular part of your skincare routine, your future face will thank you for it.
And, that's a wrap!
So there you have it folx, as party season beckons with its twinkling lights and expansive dance floors, at least you know your skin will also be glowing brighter than that disco ball. Let the party season begin!
