Under $40 Skin Hangover Fixes with Jouviance
If you're a fellow brunchinista like myself, you probably are brunching every weekend. It's tempting - between indulging in the sweet stuff to having one too many Bloody Mary's or mimosas, your skin is the first thing that shows the damage that's been done. Plus, after brunch you're most likely continuing the party into the night. Due to dehydration and toxins, the skin is especially more prone to puffiness, sagginess and break outs that are hard to get rid of even after a few days. This is what I like to call: THE SKIN HANGOVER.
Not only is your skin out of whack, but your wallet is probably looking a lot less full than it was before the weekend began. But, that doesn't mean you can slack on taking care of your skin. How do you ball out at brunch and still keep up with your skincare routine on a budget? I swear by Jouviance, and all their products are conveniently available at CVS (yay! no fuss of going to a mall to hit up a Sephora).
I always start off with Jouviance Hydrating Milk ($22): This creamy, milky cleanser is physiologically pH formulated to preserve skin's natural barrier. So while it cleanses surface impurities, unclogs pores, removes makeup and excess oil, this soap and alcohol-free cleanser has 100% natural ingredients, like panthenol to revitalize eyelashes and brows. It also has nourishing Calendula for skin. After I use this, my skin is left so silky soft and I feel like my pores can actually breathe again!
I ward off acne and dull post-mimosa skin with Jouviance Glyco Laser 10% Glycolic Acid Soft Peel Night Cream ($35): It's an overnight peel with 10% glycolic acid in a luxe, creamy formula to gently exfoliate while you sleep. Wake to taut, fresh, radiant even-toned skin. Zap breakouts, get rid of dead skin cells that dull complexion, clog pores and make skin rough - all without the nasty side effects of a chemical peel!
The last thing I do is apply Jouviance Invigorating Eye Serum ($40) to perk up tired, puffy eyes. This caffeine-infused under-eye serum instantly perks, lifts and firms your under-eye contour. Its triple-action pro-collagen peptide complex reduces puffiness and boosts microcirculation to alleviate dark circles. After a long day of brunching continuing on to the night, dark circles are always a dreaded outcome the following day. Ever since I started using this serum, I notice a significant difference in the puffiness of my eyes, even on a daily basis when I don't get as much sleep as I should.
Now, if only brunch could be as inexpensive as taking care of your skin with Jouviance...
