So, February 14 is just a few days away. Now it is time to prep your body and skin for your night of romance. Many think, "Oh, I will just go to the spa the day before or day of and get the works done." While that is an option, it can also be risky. Getting a full skin treatment done the day of or even the day before may not allow your skin time to heal if it becomes irritated. I have found it is better to begin preparing my skin for a big date night, such as Valentine's Day, at least three days prior (not counting date night).
The Basics of Face and Body Prep
You want to begin working on your face first. It is the most exposed part of your body and tends to be the most sensitive. Since you want to put your best face forward, you want to take care with how you handle the delicate skin on your face. Therefore, do one skin care treatment a night –- excluding hair removal -- to give your skin time to heal between each one.
The skin on the rest of your body tends to be a bit thicker and can handle more. You don't have to do just one treatment a day before your big night. I would recommend taking steps early to hydrate your skin so that it can be it's most soft and supple for your date night.
Now that the basics are out of the way, let's get to the nitty gritty of how you should proceed with the Valentine's Day Beauty Prep Guide.
