Valentine’s Day is only a few days away, and with all the love going around, it’s the perfect time to show yourself and your skin some love. Whether you’re single or in a relationship, this holiday is the perfect excuse to take extra care of your skin. Here are some Valentine’s Day skin care tips that we know your skin will love.
Get your “beauty sleep” the night before.
You won’t want to wake up on Valentine’s Day with puffy eyes. To avoid this, make sure you get plenty of rest the night before. You could also try sleeping with two pillows instead of one, which encourages lymphatic drainage to minimize puffy eyes in the morning.
Wash your face and exfoliate your skin.
Getting your “wow” look starts with a clean palette. Wash your face with a facial cleanser to get rid of dirt and oils, and dull skin will appear more radiant and luminous. Choose a product that also exfoliates to get rid of dead skin and prepare your skin to absorb moisturizer better.
Moisturize your skin.
Use a moisturizer to hydrate your skin and improve its appearance. You can also reapply moisturizer throughout the day so that your skin feels soft around the clock. We recommend finding a moisturizer that protects your skin from the sun and environmental pollutants, one like YOUTH® Age Defense Mineral Moisturizer SPF 30.
Pamper your skin with a chocolate face mask.
Your skin deserves a treat on Valentine’s Day too. Try a simple chocolate face mask, simply mix a teaspoon each of cocoa powder, plain yogurt, and raw honey together and apply evenly to skin. Leave on for 10 minutes then rinse gently with warm water. Cocoa is antioxidant-rich and can nourish your skin while offering extra protection against free radicals. Plus, there’s no guilt if you end up eating some, because who doesn’t love chocolate?
Try a Vitamin C serum.
Vitamin C is known to help plump and brighten skin and improve overall skin tone. To take good care of your skin, we recommend using a serum that is chemical free with skin-friendly ingredients. Try YOUTH® Radiance C+E, which uses a patented formula of 20% pure vitamin C and vitamin E plus raspberry cell extract.
Perfect your skin with BB cream.
And here’s the cherry on top: enhance your glowing skin to achieve a flawless look. You can achieve this with a BB cream that doubles as a moisturizer and a subtle foundation to even out your skin. Some BB creams, like YOUTH® Activating BB Cream, offer SPF protection as well, so you can perfect, nourish, AND protect your skin.
So get to pampering and feel amazing in your skin this Valentine’s Day! You deserve it!
