Dermatologist approved tips to help your skin Glow
💛 it or hate it, Valentine’s Day is one of the biggest date nights of the year. With the holiday of 💛 around the corner, it’s time to start prepping for a romantic night out with your beau. In our opinion, the best thing to pair with your date night LBD is flawless-looking skin from head to toe. That’s why we’re sharing helpful tips on how to get your skin in tip-top shape for Valentine’s Day. Some of these steps should be done in advance (start spot-treating those pesky zits early!) while others are to be completed the night of. Without further ado, here’s how to beautify your skin before Valentine’s Day date night.
Before Valentine’s Day :
1. Address Break Outs:
Break Outs aren’t part of your date night reservation, so let us help you kick them to the curb ahead of time. Since acne break outs can’t disappear overnight, it is best to be proactive to help keep them at bay. Start with cleansing your skin with a medicated cleanser formulated with salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide morning and night to help remove pore-clogging dirt, impurities, ⚰️ skin cells, and excess oil.
2. Apply a Face Mask:
Take advantage of free time you have before the big night to apply your favorite hydrating, brightening, or purifying mask. Choose one based on your main skin concerns, be it clogged pores or lack of radiance.
3. Pamper Yourself with a Facial:
Brighten, hydrate, and give your complexion a beautiful glow with a professional facial. Removing these ⚰️ skin cells will not only soften your skin but also improve the look and application of make up.
On Valentine’s Day:
1. Cleanse Your Skin
The day has come! After brushing your teeth in the A.M., cleanse your skin as you normally would. 👀 some of our dermatologist recommended cleansers at our skin shop.
2. Hydrate with Moisturizer
Moisturizer comes immediately after cleansing, but you already knew that (right!?). Reach for a formula that can hydrate your skin and provide long-lasting makeup hold. After your 🚿, moisturize the skin on your body with your favorite body butter, cream, or lotion. If you’re wearing a skirt or dress, pay close attention to your legs! Dry, scaly legs will not complement any outfit…trust us.
3. Hide Imperfections
Some break outs may still be visible come date night despite your best attempts to address them ahead of time. Don’t fret! Conceal them in a pinch with concealer. Whether it’s dark circles, imperfections, or age spots, the right concealer can help temporarily camouflage their appearance.
4. Be Bold with Makeup
Makeup is by no means a date night must, but if you want to wear some, why not go full glamour girl? You can’t go wrong with flirty lashes, winged eyeliner, and a smokey eye. Use our special edition Glowmedica Makeup to get that beautiful and professional looking look.
