Personally, I like some fresh watermelon (how boring! I really love a good nap, a pepperoni pizza and coke in my bed).

St. Patrick’s Day Beauty Survival Guide
Tips for the Tuesday After
What to fix: Messy Makeup
The beauty tricks: Forget to wash your face when falling asleep after a night of good cheer? FAB Gentle Cleansing Wipes ($15, Sephora) are perfect for easily removing makeup, surface oils and impurities. You can leave them next to your bed, so when dashing out the door you can wash and go, leaving skin clean and refreshed.
What to fix: Under Eye Puffiness
The beauty tricks: There is no pot of gold at the end of those upside-down rainbows under your eyes—so let’s get rid of them! Apply an eye gel packed with peptides to get your eyes back to looking normal. Environ’s C-Quence Eye Gel ($86, doctor’s offices, medical spas and wellness centers listed on DermaConcepts.com) has antioxidants and essential vitamins to replenish the fragile skin around your eyes.
What to fix: Dehydration Skin Nation
The beauty tricks: Take a few minutes the morning after and apply a nourishing and moisturizing face mask, like Manuka Doctor Apinourish Rejuvenating Face Mask ($85, Sephora). With moisturizing ingredients like Manuka Honey, royal jelly, shea and cocoa butters, this mask is sure to calm irritated skin and give it a lovely glow.
What to fix: Paler Than an Irishman
The beauty tricks: As you get older, the hangover hits later. Hydroxatone’s Anti-Acne CC Cream($59.95, hydroxatone.com) is the perfect way to prep your skin for the long day ahead. This color-correcting, anti-aging cream not only moisturizes, it also prevents acne and leaves your skin with the perfect glow.
What to fix: Hangover Hair
The beauty tricks: Even if you oversleep, clean hair is a key to avoiding the question, “Where were you last night?” You can get fabulous in five minutes with the Paul Mitchel Dry Wash ($20.98, professional salons only), an express dry, waterless shampoo that absorbs excess oils and instantly leaves hair looking and feeling freshly washed with a clean scent.
Have fun you Irish, happy-go-lucky, party-goers!
