by Jan 19, 2023

If you want to look good on your upcoming Valentine’s Day date night, we think having beautiful skin is a must. Here are five tips to help create radiant skin this February 14th. Whether you’re celebrating with your loved ones in person or taking care of business over video chat, follow these tips and your skin will be looking great in no time.

Before Valentines Day
Address Blemishes

To discourage blemishes from forming, start by frequently cleansing your skin with a cleanser that includes salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide. If you suffer from pore-clogging dirt, impurities, dead skin cells, and excess oil, you can also use a treatment to fight breakouts. Keihl’s Breakout Control Targeted Acne Spot Treatment (formulated with 10% sulfur) is a great option because it targets inflamed zits. Apply it nightly leading up to a date night to help reduce the appearance of acne lesions.

Apply a Face Mask

A great way to target skin issues is to give yourself an intensive treatment in the form of a face mask. Choose one based on your top skin concern, be it clogged pores or dullness.

Pamper you Pout

To prep for a date night, exfoliate your lips the night before. This will help to remove dead skin cells and improve the look of lipstick. Be sure to hydrate your lips with lip balm, salve, or mask once exfoliating is complete.

On Valentines Day
Cleans and Hydrate Your Skin

To prep your skin for makeup, start by hydrating it with La Roche-Posay Toleriane Hydrating Gentle Facial Cleanser. It’s formulated with LRP’s signature prebiotic thermal spring water, niacinamide, and ceramide-3 to gently cleanse the skin of dirt, makeup, and impurities while maintaining the skin’s natural moisture barrier and pH. After cleansing, reach for a nourishing moisturizer that also primers your Foundation.  Next, apply an infused skincare foundation like the IT Cosmetics Foundation for a hydration and radiance boost.

Be Bold with Makeup

A holiday is a perfect excuse to get creative and have fun with your makeup. For a date night, you can’t go wrong with flirty lashes, smoky eyes, and red lips.
