Aaah party season. It’s all fun and games isn’t it. Tipples, flirtation under the mistletoe, mince pies, oh yeah, ‘tis the season to be jolly. We hate to bust your bubble, but party season isn’t all that fun for your face. Bad weather, sugar excess, a tendency to drink more alcohol than usual… It all adds up to give your skin a bit of a battering.
Fortunately, here at Bulldog, we’re on hand to help you look sharp during your festive merriments.
Call it getting your ducks in a row (or turkeys if we’re being seasonally appropriate) or just plain old common sense there are a few ways we’d recommend getting yourself ready and primed for you big Christmas events.
The Day Before
Give your skin a little pick me up to look it’s best the night before a big event. You’ll be prepping like a pro with our Oil Control Face Mask by removing excess oil and leaving your face feeling soft.
Give yourself a style revamp by looking suited, booted, clean cut and freshly shaved on the festive circuit. It’s a great way to shake up your look if you tend to opt for the designer stubble all year round. Use a creamy Foaming Original Shave Gel shave smooth with our Original Bamboo Razor and follow with an Original Aftershave Balm to soothe and moisturise.
Look After Those Lips
Dry lips are painful, common during winter months but super easy to fix. If you find that you’re particularly flaky keep an Original Lip Balm in you desk draw, glove compartment and or/suit pocket so that you can apply throughout the day and evening as necessary.
Post Party Pick Me Ups
Recover and make sure you’re ready for the next event with these life (or skin to be more precise) savers.
Ditch The Bags
There’s nothing that gives away a night of partying more so than dark, puffy circles around the eyes. While there’s nothing that substitutes for a good night’s sleep, plenty of water and generally not overdoing it, our Age Defence Eye Roll-On is a second best. This award-winning pocket saviour will help reduce the appearance of dark circles and roll away the sins of last night. Keep it in the fridge overnight and apply under the eyes in the morning for a lovely cooling sensation.
Cleanse, Clean & Refresh
There’s nothing like an invigorating shower the morning after the night before to wash away any lingering roughness. Although it wont cure a severe hang over or wash away any regrets (who has time for them anyway) it is the first step to starting a new day fresh. Our Original Shower Gel contains menthol to refresh and cleanse. Perfect.
Hydration Hydration Hydration
Save your face with a super hydrating moisturiser. Alcohol is a diuretic which basically means it’s dehydrating. So, in addition to drinking lots of water throughout December and being mindful of those wine glass top ups (they add up!) you might want to also opt for a thicker formula moisturiser than usual. Our Original 24 Hour Moisturiser is an intensely hydrating formula but it’s still fast absorbing so that you won’t feel greasy like a morning after fry up.
