Have you ever seen a woman ( hopefully not in the mirror) whose face seems dried out? Everyone knows I love a great party, but when there is alcohol involved, your skin can get very dehydrated.
There is something in our skin called protein fibers. Collagen and elastin depend on protein fibers to keep the skin firm , plump and without wrinkles . Things like a high sugar level in the body damages these fibers.
Combined with lack of sleep ( from partying!), sugar and alcohol could be double teaming your skin making things not so good. A lot of the body's repair process happens during sleep. We are basically sacrificing our skin's turnover and repair process the party Gods.
No matter what your skin type is, you will need to re-hydrate and plump up those skin cells. Luckily there are facial masks for every skin type.
