Love is in the air! Valentine’s Day is around the corner. No one wants to show up to a date with less than perfect looking skin. Don’t forget to give and extra care and pamper your skin before going to your Valentine’s Date.
Start your skin care routine the night before setting yourself up to look nearly flawless for your big night out. The key is to prep your skin right and get a good night’s sleep.
Follow these steps to get perfectly luminous skin for your date.
No beauty routine should start without cleanser and it’s important that you find the right cleanser to suit your skin’s needs.
Select your cleanser according to your skin type:
Oily Skin: Make sure to use a cleanser that removes impurities out of your pores. Just be sure that the product you use is not too drying as that can strip your skin and in turn increase oil production.
Dry Skin: Use a creamy cleanser or a cleansing milk to maintain your skin’s ph balance and is moisturizing, not stripping.
Sensitive Skin: Formulas with fragrance or alcohol will make your skin flare up. Use a milky, non-comedogenic cleanser specifically formulated for sensitive skin.
Consider double cleansing if you’re wearing a lot of make up and you really want to take cleansing to the next level.
2. Use a Retinol
Retinol or pro-retinol, a Vitamin A derivative, is considered one of the best products to improve collagen production and make your skin appear brighter. Use in the form of a serum or cream.
3. Use a Moisturizer that Works Overnight
As you, your skin is ready to go to sleep, and there’s no better way to give it some rest than with
a product that hydrates and nourishes overnight. You will wake up with beautiful refreshed skin. Use a moisturizer formulated with antioxidants to restore any damage sustained from free radicals throughout the day. Resveratrol can be perfect!!
4. Get 8 Hours of Sleep
This sounds like it would be the easiest part of the routine but many adults report regularly not
getting enough sleep. Try to get at least eight hours of sleep the night before your date. Your skin will be able to maximize surface cell turnover during the night, your eyes will look refreshed and if you use the right products, you can even help reduce the appearance of fine lines you may have.
5. Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate
Your skin will never look its most radiant and plump unless you properly hydrate your body.You should drink water throughout the day.
6. Moisturize your skin in the morning
In the morning do not forget a moisturizer, you can use one with vitamin C, and your skin will
glow!!!Remember, serum for oily and mixed skin and cream for normal and oily skin.
Remember that the best protection for your skin will always be a good sunscreen, sunscreen protects your skin from sun damage and prevents skin aging and skin cancer.
