Stylist Solution: New Year’s Day Recovery Guide

HERO

New Year’s Eve festivities are just one day away, which probably means a lot of dancing and champagne toasting into the wee hours of the morning. To help boost both your skin and your body’s resilience to late-night party fatigue, we’ve rounded up a few products and tips from our Costa Mesa, Californiabased Beauty Stylist, Elyse Reneau.

Elyse’s Late-Night Must-Haves:

 1. CLARISONIC® Deep Pore Detoxifying Solution Set: “The first time I used CLARISONIC, I felt like I’d never had truly clean skin before,” says Elyse.

 2. La Mer ‘The Moisturizing Soft Cream’ Smooth, Weightless Cream: “Day or night, this is my go-to moisturizer. My skin just drinks it in.”

 3. Jo Malone London Jo Malone™ Vitamin E Body Balm: “Because anything from Jo Malone works wonders, plus it’s packed with Vitamin E to replenish and restore the skin.”

VIP Party Bonus Buys: Try Bliss Softening Socks to sooth your soles from dancing in high heels. And erase any signs of a sleepless night with Xtreme Lashes® Hydrating Under Eye Gel Patches.

Looking fresh on January 1st is all about having the right skincare products in your arsenal! “While popping the bubbly and dancing the night away are absolutely necessary, they can also leave your skin severely dehydrated the next day,” says Elyse, who swears by hyaluronic acid serums. “I really love DermalQuench Liquid Lift by Kate Somerville, which not only improves moisture by 130% in one treatment but is also infused with oxygen, to give life and lift back to the skin.”

Next up: Elyse recommends trying a luminizing primer like Laura Mercier Radiance Foundation Primer, which will give your skin just the glow it needs, and it looks beautiful under your favorite foundation or all by itself. “This primer gives a gorgeous ‘lit from within’ glow, so if your skin is looking lackluster, this primer will help you fake it ’til you make it!”

Eyes puffy from lack of sleep? “Get your smoky eyes on, girls,” adds Elyse. “Nothing hides puffiness like a good old-fashioned smoky eye (remember: light colors bring them out and dark colors recede them). My favorite product for a quick smoky eye is Trish McEvoy 24-Hour Eyeshadow & Eyeliner in Topaz or Smokey Quartz. These shades are universally flattering and incredibly easy to blend!”
