valentines day skin prep

Lip treatment

Let’s be honest: Valentine’s Day and lips go hand-in-hand, so show ‘em some love right before their big night ;) Use a lip treatment in the form of a super nourishing balm overnight or do fun lip mask to prep your pucker. The more intense the hydration, the better.

Target Breakouts

If you are having any breakouts, now is the time to apply a medicated lotion to the breakout and leave overnight. Make sure you apply the spot treatment on cleansed skin and before you apply any other products.

Limit Alcohol

Alcohol restricts oxygen flow to your cells, making skin look dull and puffy the next morning. Sounds familiar, doesn’t it? If you just can’t help it, make sure you take in a glass of water for every alcoholic drink you consume to minimize the toxic effects of alcohol.

Beauty Sleep

Clock in 7-9 hours of sleep the night before you want to look your best. This will ensure that you wake up looking refreshed, without undereye bags or circles, as well as ensuring that your skin remains healthy throughout the day without the spike in cortisol caused by a lack of sleep, which triggers inflammation.

Exfoliate and Mask

Exfoliating and putting on a face mask are huge allies when you are trying to get your skin to looks it’s best. Exfoliating sloughs off any dry, dead skin that may be sitting on top of your epidermis (top layer of skin) while masks inject an extra dose of nutrition and nourishment to your skin that you don’t get on a daily basis.

Moisturize

Keeping skin moisturized is vital for healthy skin. Moisturiser will soothe, nourish and protect the skin. If you’re really going for that dewy skin look, apply a thin layer of facial oil 10 or so minutes after your moisturizer (and before makeup) to really lock in moisture and add that much coveted glow to skin.
