We know you want caffeine but your body + skin is THIRSTYYY. Drink lot’s of water throughout the day and try to opt for green tea instead of coffee!

02 / Wash Your Face, Please!

Wether you slept in your makeup or managed to take it off.. WASH. YOUR. FACE. Don’t make your Sunday any scarier by using a makeup wipe. Instead, use a cleansing balm or micellar water to remove that first layer of makeup. Follow through with a gentle cleanser or an oil cleanser to remove dirt, oil and any leftover makeup.

Bioderma Sensibio H2O

It’s gentle for both your eyes and face. Apply it to a cotton pad and then remove your makeup. Good for those late nights you don’t feel like washing your face!

SkinKure Glow Cleanser

The non-comedogenic formula is great for acne prone skin but gentle enough for dry skin, effective at removing all makeup without stripping the skin of its natural moisture. 

03 / Hydrate With Moisturizers

Yes.. more hydration. This time your face and body. What you need is a thick + rich moisturizer and to literally DRENCH your skin.

04 / Don’t Forget The Eye Cream

We know your eyes are just as dehydrated. Treat them well with a cooling eye cream and some eye patches if you have them!
