Being a girl is hard sometimes!
Why? Well, because special occasions like Valentine’s Day take a lot more of preparation than simply choosing greeting cards and chocolates.
How? We want to look good, yeah, all the time. And Valentine’s Day is so much special, one because it is the day of love and two, because we want to look effortlessly pretty for the special someone.
Girls, we have always got your back. Here you go with everything essential you need to know and look dreamlike simply because you want to turn heads wherever you go.
We know you have carefully kept your new makeup products in your makeup bag as you are saving them for special occasion. But you should know that irrespective of your skin type, it can be unpredictable at times. Even the expensive makeup items can be a reason for skin allergy or reactions. Therefore, you must try all the skin products in advance to save you from any unwanted situation on the day itself. Also, if you’re going to try a new facial or a new face treatment, you should do it at least a fortnight before the D Day.
Exfoliation is a great way to reduce the dead skin and have healthy pores. Oh, but wait! Did you ever notice that you get redness on your skin or bruises when you go for dermabrasion? So, ladies please don’t exfoliate your skin on the same day whether you are doing it at home or getting it done from a professional. Even if you don’t have redness or bruises, the exfoliation may leave your skin sensitive and the skin products may hurt & create tiny bumps on your skin. So, do it well in advance, may be a week ago. Another common mistake girls make is using the same exfoliant/scrub for your body and your face. Your facial skin is quite sensitive than that of other body parts.
When we talk about skin preparation massage is the most gentle and relaxing way. Face & body massage improves the blood circulation Massage To start preparing the skin, there’s nothing better than going to a spa and getting a face and body massage. If you’re too busy, no worries, you can do this yourself. Using the tips of your fingers massage your skin in circular motion and always going upwards. You can use Argan oil for dry skin or cotton extract lotion for sensitive/oily skin.
Special occasions demand special attention. Try the dark chocolate mask for a deep relaxation. The good thing is that you can make it yourself at home. Heat the dark chocolate in a bowl to melt it, shouldn’t be too hot though. Mix in some almond oil and one egg yolk. Apply it gently on your face and neck and let it rest for 15-20 minutes. Finally you can wash it with lukewarm water. Now be ready to get ultra smooth, soft & supple skin.
Let’s face it. No matter how good your skin is or make up is but no look can be complete without healthy & shiny hair. Try this homemade hair mask for lustrous and bouncy tresses. Mash one ripe banana, add in one tbl. spoon of organic honey and olive oil. Mix it well or you can blend it if you want. Apply it generously all over your hair; allow it to stay on for at least half an hour. Then you can wash your hair with your regular shampoo and there you have it. Super shiny and gorgeous hair!
We bet these tips would make you look your best self. Just let loose and feel the love you’re surrounded with. Smile & conquer the world!
