Valentine's Day: Preserve Your Glowing Skin After The Excesses of The Weekend
Romantic dates, couples spa, or a fun weekend getaway with your partner – while you are looking forward to some quality time with your partner, make sure your skin brings its A Game too. You have probably been too busy at work or college to pay attention to your skin. Your body is tired and your skin is feeling the effects, looking dull and sallow. Getting your radiance back requires a more healthy way of life, quality sleep and some other little skin care tips. Here is how you can start prepping your skin so it glows from within on Valentine’s Day.
The night before Valentine's Day, so that your skin isn't red on the big day, use a scrub with very fine grains to eliminate the dead skin and impurities accumulated over the week. By removing deposits from the pores, you will reveal more radiant skin, boost skin microcirculation and prepare you skin to receive the active ingredients in your skin care products. The result: glowing skin.
After exfoliating, on clean, dry skin, apply a serum rich in energising, perfecting, nourishing, anti-aging or anti-wrinkle active ingredients. Choose the one that is best for your skin type and needs! Serums, which are twice as concentrated in active ingredients as a face cream, provide an immediate radiance boost to your skin. For example, the L’Oreal Paris Revitalift Laser X3 Renewing Anti-Ageing Serum is enriched with Pro-Xylane and Adenosine to instantly refine skin texture and give you a smoother and more radiant look.
3. Eye cream
When your eyes give away your lack of sleep and rid your face of its radiance, don't hesitate: it's time to treat the eye contour. Apply an eye contour product from the inner corner to the outer corner of the eye to smooth out the fine, fragile skin in this area, massage eye bags in order to reduce them and relax your features.
The skin needs to be hydrated to keep its suppleness and stay comfortable. So, apply a moisturising product and for yet more effectiveness, choose a product that has perfecting properties. This is how you can reduce micro-imperfections with a blur effect. The result: pores are smaller, lines are smoothed out and the skin is illuminated and clearer!
There is no need to get the big guns out to ensure rested, glowing skin on Valentine's night. Start by applying an illuminating primer that smooths out the skin and fixes your makeup for a radiant look. Then, mix your usual foundation with some highlighter for a very natural finish. Add a touch of light to the inner corner of your eyes with a light eyeshadow to make your eyes look bigger, then choose a slightly iridescent blusher to apply at the top of your cheekbones for a glowing complexion. And that's it: all you need to do for glowing skin!
The last thing you should be worrying about on Valentine’s Day is your skin. Take some time before Valentin’s Day to treat your skin to some TLC and enjoy a beautiful day with healthy and glowing skin.
