Like its green-tinted cousin St. Patrick’s Day, Cinco de Mayo is a relatively minor holiday (it’s not Mexican Independence Day, BTW) that Americans use as an excuse for pub crawls and eating tasty treats. But since no time is a bad time to sip on a margarita and fiestas are fun (so long as you leave the sombreros and fake mustaches at the party store—seriously, don’t do that, y’all!) we’ve put together a list of some of the best lime-licious beauty products to help keep you looking gorgeous, even if you have one tequila shot too many.
Elemis Lime & Ginger Salt Glow. Lime, ginger, salt—sounds like a cocktail waiting to happen. This refreshing body scrub will revive even the most over-partied skin with lime, ginger root, and coconut oil. “Glow” is definitely the operative word.
Malin + Goetz Lime Bar Soap. A wake-up call in bar form, this soap has a zesty citrus scent that will make any shower feel like a fiesta. Bonus: Up the yum factor with Malin + Goetz Cilantro Hair Conditioner.
Sugar Crush Body Buttercream. Packed with shea butter, coconut oil, cocoa butter, and lime-seed oil, this deeply hydrating body butter refreshes with a sweet lime fragrance.
Peter Thomas Roth Anti-Aging Cleansing Gel.Lemon, lime, and grapefruit extract team up with salicylic acid and glycolic acid for an exfoliating powerhouse that boosts cell turnover and helps control oil production.
Éminence Lime Stimulating Mask. This acne-fighting mask is full of vitamin C-rich lime and skin-stimulating nettle to give you a rosy, radiant complexion and algae to moisturize. No one will ever be able to tell you scarfed that whole platter of greasy nachos by yourself.
TonyMoly I’m Real Avocado Sheet Mask. Because what’s a margarita without guacamole? Twenty minutes with this revitalizing mask will recharge any radiance you may have lost to salty snacks and alcohol.
How not to look like a hot mess when you’re hungover:
