Unwind after partying
Coming back late after a Christmas party?
Here is how it affects your skin:
#1 Is that already your fourth glass of wine?!
Before you get another refill, think again! Excess alcohol consumption especially cocktails, rum and carbonated drinks which are all high in sugar can dehydrate your skin and lead to premature ageing!
Glycation contributes to ageing due to excess consumption of sugars. Excess sugars that float in our bloodstream bind to proteins, which creates advanced glycation end products (AGEs) that ruin the structure and function of these fibres in our body. Unfortunately, these processes also affect collagen and elastin, proteins responsible for our plump complexion. Excess sugar weakens our skin cell's structure, making it more prone to wrinkles and deeper smile lines! (why are you still holding onto that wine glass?!)
Alcohol causes severe dehydration as water is taken up by your internal organs, leaving none for your skin! Binge drinking will also affect and hinder the production of new skin cells, making your skin look dull and less youthful! You might want to call a cab home now..
#2 Lack of sleep
When you sleep, your skin cells regenerate overnight, making it essential for cell repair. Melatonin, a hormone responsible for calming, healing, cell repair and skin cell turnover is released when you snooze. When you don't, this hormone production is hindered and will not be able to carry out its tasks on making new healthy skin cells!
What can you do?
#1 Use Tea-Tox
Tea-Tox is a unique 20% probiotics sheet mask that is packed with Vitamin C and antioxidants, which helps to brighten and stimulate collagen production while erasing free radical damage! Above all, it actually helps to eliminate high glycation activities, which means fighting for your skin health against that excessive sugar you consumed during that party!
#2 Use Youth Beam
Youth Beam is an anti-ageing night serum that contains superfoods such as ginger and pine bark extract that helps to slow collagen breakdown, plump skin, increase elasticity, and prevent formation of fine lines, which mitigates the negative effects of not sleeping enough! Although not a complete alternative to good sleep, Youth Beam can be your best friend at night to combat premature ageing!
#3 Use Dream Capsule
Dream Capsule is the ultimate overnight sleeping mask that works overtime to boost collagen, improve overall blood flow and stimulate cell repair, which decreases the appearance of scars and wrinkles! It also acts as a night moisturiser, packing in all that hydration you lose when you party all night! Pair it with Youth Beam for best results!
