#6 LAY OFF THE BOOZE!
Thinking of getting a little ‘Dutch Courage’ before your headshot session?
Any photographer worth their salt is going to put you at ease and coach you into getting the best from your photoshoot.
I’d recommend that you avoid all alcohol for up to a week prior to the shoot.
You want to look your best right? I think we’ve established this in previous posts, so here’s why you want to lay off the old ‘loud-mouth soup’ beforehand.
Alcohol dehydrates you and we’ve already discussed the benefits of well-hydrated skin in a previous post.
Drinking alcohol interferes with your sleep which means………..
It can make you look fatigued.
Poor quality sleep will give you dark circles under your eyes and your face might also appear bloated.
So, in conclusion, I’d recommend you abstain from alcohol for at the very least a few days before your headshot session.
