Valentine's Day is just around the corner, and if you're like me, you want to look your best for that special someone. I know that sounds silly—everyone wants to look their best on Valentine's Day—but for me, it's even more important!
The real key to glowing skin on your date night is by having great skin. In this article, we discuss the different things you can do to make your skin look its best on Valentine's Day.
Skincare tips for Valentine's
First things first: If you're going to be wearing foundation and concealer, it's essential that your face is completely cleansed before applying any product. Your skin will look more radiant if there are no traces of yesterday's makeup or oil sitting on top of the surface.
This is the most important step of the process. Before you apply any makeup, it's vital that you moisturize your skin first. This will help your foundation glide on smoothly and evenly, leading to a much more polished appearance overall.
Additionally, moisturizing can help keep your skin hydrated throughout the day if you're prone to dry patches or irritation. Finally, moisturizers can also help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles as well as acne marks—which is especially helpful if you're trying out something new for date night!
Exfoliate if needed
If you have dry skin, exfoliation is an essential step in your skincare routine. Exfoliating helps remove dead skin cells that can clog pores and lead to acne.
It also helps keep your complexion looking fresh and even by clearing away any excess oil or dirt that might be lingering on the surface of your face.
Apply a face oil or serum
If you're like most people, the thought of applying a face oil or serum probably gives you the heebie-jeebies. But if applied correctly (and sparingly), face oils will leave behind a beautiful glow without appearing oily at all!
Face oils and serums are designed to penetrate into your skin deeper than regular lotions or moisturizers, which means they give your skin an extra boost of hydration—a much-needed ingredient for glowing skin.
