Love is in the air, yet again!
Valentine’s Day is around the corner, and you deserve to look special. You might have already made all the plans for the big day, have reserved the best hotel, and even decided the clothes to wear, but what about your skin care routine? Did you revamp it yet?
Do not rely completely on make-up products, instead glow naturally. However, since Valentine’s Day often experiences a dip in the mercury, the colder air outside and indoor heating take a toll on your skin.
Do not let that happen this year! Below are some amazing skin care recommendations that will help you in glowing inside-out.
- Double cleanse your skin
If you are wearing makeup, it is highly recommended first to get rid of it with the help of a makeup remover. Next, cleanse your skin properly with a face wash to drive out any left impurities. This will cleanse your skin properly and will make it ready to absorb other skin products.
- Use a face mask
Once you have prepared your skin and have cleansed it pretty well, the next step here is to apply a face mask. It is essential to choose a mask depending on your skin type and the conditions you are trying to get over, for instance, getting rid of acne or dryness, or lifting it up and so on.
If you do not want to splurge unnecessarily on over-the-counter products, you can also try to make face masks at home. A fuller’s earth face mask works fine for oily skin. If you have dry skin, you can try honey and lemon mask at home.
Providing steam to your face can work in your favor. It opens up your pores and expels the toxins trapped inside your skin. You can either use a face streamer or have a DIY steam arrangement at home. All you need to do is add a few drops of your favorite essential oil into the hot water. Next, place a towel on your head and position your face on the pot with hot water in such a way that your face comes in contact with uprising steam.
It is as simple as that!
- Dry brush
For immediate effect, you can also dry brush your face. Make short and quick strokes in an upward motion on your face. This increases the blood flow and exfoliates your skin, thus providing you with a supple and glowy look just like the way you wanted!
- Sleep properly
We know you are all excited about the next day, and the chances are high that you will not sleep the previous night properly. But relax yourself. Meditate. Listen to your favorite music. Read books. Do not let the stress or excitement, whatever you would like to call it, take a toll on your face and skin.
It is called beauty sleep for a reason. Thus, make sure that you have a sound sleep the night before the Valentine’s Day!
Go ahead. Be confident, and carry that beautiful smile on your face. You look beautiful, as always!
