Valentine's Day is just around the corner, and if you have been asked out on a big date for the occasion or are planning a special surprise for your sweetheart and want to look as beautiful as possible, it all starts with your skin. Valentine's Day takes place in February, one of the colder months in the season, and this means you may be dealing with extra dry skin at this time, which can lead to a dull and tired appearance. The good news is that there are some simple treatments that can help you regain that beautiful summer glow just in time for this romantic occasion. Here are some simple skin care tips to help you look absolutely perfect on Valentine's Day.
Exfoliation is one of the most important treatments when it comes to treating dry and tired skin. Exfoliation works to remove dry skin cells and encourage new collagen production, resulting in fresh and beautiful skin. Exfoliation should be performed once a week with an all-natural scrub that contains sea salt, sugar, pineapple enzyme, or apricot seeds, as these gentle natural exfoliants work well to get the job done without causing irritation. It is best to apply your scrub at night and gently massage the face using a counter clockwise rotation. Rinse with warm water, and pat the skin dry. Once your skin is completely dry, apply a layer of pure Vitamin E oil to the skin. Vitamin E is highly emollient and is known for its healing properties as well. The Vitamin E will penetrate the skin overnight, and you will wake up with a soft, supple, and gorgeous appearance, just in time for Valentine's Day.
It is always important to apply an all-natural moisturizer to your skin each day and night in order for it to maintain elasticity and moisture, as well as fight off the signs of aging. However, if you are looking for a quick fix for problem skin in time for your big date, you can easily speed up the process by using a moisturizer.
All-Natural Mineral Makeup
Once your skin is exfoliated and moisturized, it is time to get ready for your special date. Choosing the right makeup is of the utmost importance, as certain liquid makeups can actually sit in the creases of your skin and create an aged and tired look. The first step is to moisturize, then apply a light coat of all-natural liquid makeup. Once the makeup has set, the next step is to lightly dust the face with an all-natural mineral powder. These powders come in a variety of shades, from sun-kissed bronze to light pink, and their all-natural minerals work well to provide ample color while deflecting light, allowing for a youthful and healthy appearance.
Valentine's Day is an important holiday for new couples, long term partners, and even for blind dates. You want to make sure you look your best in order to leave a lasting impression, as well as feel beautiful from the inside out. By taking a few simple skin care steps prior to the big day and using all-natural mineral makeup to finish off your look, your skin will be healthy and beautiful, and you will be truly irresistible to your Valentine's date!
