2019 is here and everyone finally has got over parties.
But your skin takes the toll of the endless parties you attended, the glasses of alcohol you gulped down and what not. It starts looking dull and lifeless with no glow at all.
Why does it happen?
Most of you attend parties to have fun. But the basic requirement for attending a party is getting dressed up. Definitely, it requires make-up and you never know when the party would end.
As a result, you sleep with your make-up only to wake up and get ready for the next day without paying attention to what it is doing to your facial skin. When you eat and binge-drink with make-up on your face, you are adding toxins to your skin in three ways.
Parties might look fun from outside but only if you follow a strict detox routine after every other party.
