3 Tips to Have a Happy Cinco de Mayo This Year
Cinco de Mayo honors Mexico's resilience by remembering the Mexican army's victory over the French during the Franco-Mexican War in 1862. In the US, Cinco de Mayo is a popular holiday to celebrate Mexican heritage and the strength required to overcome any obstacle.
Get started with your Cinco de Mayo planning by following these tips to have a memorable holiday, including advice for having holiday-ready skin.
Make a List for Your Cinco de Mayo Menu
If you're hosting a Cinco de Mayo party at home, make a list of the food and beverages you want to serve. Margaritas are a given on any Cinco de Mayo menu. To make a classic margarita, pick up a bottle of 100 percent agave tequila, fresh lime juice, and triple sec or orange liquor. Or, if you want to serve a fun twist on the margarita, grab some frozen fruit and break out your blender for a fruity frozen margarita.
A taco bar is a simple yet delicious option for a happy Cinco de Mayo that lets your guests customize their plate to their tastes. Don't forget to grab your favorite chips and salsa!
Prepare Your Skin for Your Cinco de Mayo Look
Whether you're going out, hosting a party, or staying in, fantastic skin makes for a happy Cinco de Mayo.
At the end of a celebratory night, the last thing you want to do is have to scrub away layers of makeup. So now is the perfect time to try a foundation-free look.
You'll want to spend extra time on your skincare routine when you're planning to forgo foundation. Our Rescue Serum is the ultimate one-step product for helping your skin look its best. Antioxidants protect from free radical damage, while the serum's "911" elixir encourages the skin's natural repair process, reducing the look of wrinkles, fine lines, and irritation. Find that your skin looks a little dull or listless? Then, try our Optima Face Cream for lightweight moisture to provide a radiant complexion that lasts the whole evening.
Finally, throughout the night, drink a few glasses of water between your celebratory beverages to keep your skin hydrated.
