It would help if you did not wait until a few days to your Valentine's Day to begin your pre-date beauty prep. Check out these Seven Ways to Enhance Your Complexion in Time for Valentine's Day.
We got everything you need to know how to look dreamy for your Valentine's Day night out.
1. Refresh Your Skincare Routine
The dead of winter is upon us; however, there is no time like the present to "spring clean," your skincare regime. With our never-ending search for skin perfection, we all fall victim to each new product that promises you everything under the sun to get flawless skin. Consequently, your bathroom becomes jam-packed with unwanted effects collected, which may also be toxic and can be bad news for our skin. If you are not using it, throw it away.
Try learning what the word "natural" means when it comes to your beauty and skincare. The industry likes to sell to us but often does not disclose the full truth about what is inside of their products. Become an ingredient and label detective, check everything, and make sure none of your existing products contain phthalates or parabens.
This is the first step to enhancing your complexion by dumping the hazardous stuff.
Show your skin the love it deserves by having the best natural skincare routine possible.
Keep skin safe by using products with all-natural ingredients, and that is organic and vegan.
When you finish a current skincare product, switch it out for a more natural substitute.
Multi-task your skincare products, meaning try using one product for more than just one application.
For example, try using jojoba oil.
It is an excellent all-natural ingredient that can be used to hydrate your face and your body. Jojoba oil skin benefits are tremendous.
3. Give Your Skin What It Needs.
Make sure you follow a proper skincare regimen every morning and night. It doesn't matter what your skin type is; as a part of a proper skincare routine, it's recommended to use a gentle, hypoallergenic cleanser.
This type of cleanser will remove excess oils and dead skin cells, all without stripping your skin of its moisture. Use it morning and night. Also, make sure your skincare routine consists of the following:
Toner is the shy one in the room. It often gets overlooked, but by using just a few swipes to your face, your skin will become refreshed instantaneously. Make sure to select one that is suited for your skin type. If you are looking for the best toner for face and skin care, check out our website.
At Nonie of Beverly Hills, we have a fantastic AHA Skin Tonic that will refresh and tighten your pores while leaving your skin with a smooth and polished texture.
Our tonic contains Alpha Hydroxy Acids that derives naturally from fruits.
Give Your Skin a Dewy Look by Using a Glow Infused Serum.
Want to give your skin an instant glow? Use a serum that is jam-packed with skin-boosting nutrients like peptides, collagen, and vitamin C. This gives your fabulous face a nice glowing appearance that will make your skin look extra remarkable on Valentine's Day!
Hydrate Weary Eyes with a Soothing Eye Cream
Invigorate and hydrate your under-eye area with an eye cream. Dark circles and fine lines may appear if you are tired. An eye cream can also reduce eye puffiness.
Try our AHA! Eye Cream. It is an indulgent, luscious cream suited for all skin types. Our eye cream will lighten, brighten, and tighten, all while reducing the signs of aging.
Pick Hydrating Facial Mask
While preparing your skin for Valentine's Day, treat yourself to a hydrating facial mask that can benefit your dry skin that comes along with winter.
Use an Exfoliant.
A few times a week, make sure to exfoliate. When you exfoliate, it acts as a gateway for renewing your skin. It clears away dead skin cells and build-up that can clog your pores and create blemishes. Also, it helps fight the signs of aging by reducing fine lines, wrinkles, dark spots, and evening skin tone. The best skincare routine always includes the use of an exfoliant.
What is the best moisturizer? Your skin most likely is dryer than expected due to the cooler temps of winter. We recommend using a rich oil-based cream. This can help lock in moisture that your skin needs and keep you hydrated better than water infused moisturizers. Remember choosing organic, and all-natural ingredients are top-notch for your skincare routine and having your complexion look fabulous in time for Valentine's Day.
Not sure where to start to look for that perfect moisturizer for your skin type? Here at Nonie's, we got an array for you to choose from. We sell moisturizers based on all skin types.
Don't forget about your dry hands and dry feet this winter. Check out our AHA! Body Lotion. Besides being infused with AHAs ingredients from fruits and other all-natural components, moisturizers at Nonie's contain Vitamins A, B, C & E. needed to revitalize and moisturize your dry skin this winter. You don't want to have a flakey complexion on Valentine's Day, do you? Yea, we didn't think so.
Sunscreen is your friend all year round.
Your skin may be the most sensitive while on vacation; however, the exposure of skin damage due to ultraviolet rays from the sun is something to be concerned with all year long.
Remember to use a broad-spectrum SPF of 15 or higher every two hours.
3. Eat Your Fruits and Veggies and Stay Hydrated.
We know that eating processed foods can do a number on our skin, most likely to cause breakouts. Got a sweet tooth? Sure, we all do, but did you know that overindulgence in sugar is bad for your skin and can start the aging process early (premature aging.) Say it is not so?
Particular foods actually may have the reverse result on your skin health. The saying we are what we eat, and beauty and skincare go hand in hand. One affects the other.
There are healthy foods that boost a healthy lifestyle but can also help your skin look youthful and radiant. Foods like avocados, lemons, sweet potatoes, blueberries, leafy greens, tomatoes, and even dark chocolate are excellent superfoods that you should incorporate into your diet to have youthful, dewy skin in time for Valentine's Day.
If you want to learn more about foods that can help you achieve glowing skin, check out our blog, 12 Super Foods That'll Help Achieve Glowing Skin.
They say you are supposed to drink at least eight glasses of water or more a day to have water flush our toxins. Wait, how much? You want a beautiful complexion for Valentine's day, don't you?
Then drink up. All the beauty and skin experts agree that the more water you drink, the dewier your skin will look.
4. Try Some Beauty Supplements/Drops
Besides eating the right foods to become healthy from the inside out, consider taking a supplement if you want glowing skin.
There are plenty of vitamins and powders out there you can take to clear and boost the glow to your complexion.
Remember that our modern-day skincare and beauty routines do not just have to sit on our bathroom vanity.
Some good ones to try are vegan collagen capsules, beauty drops, and hydration drops. Most of these contain essential nutrients such as vitamin A, B, C E, and other minerals that stimulate collagen growth.
5. Get Your Zzzs (Enough)
If you want a further improve your complexion in time for Valentine's Day, make sure you get good quality sleep, which is between 7-9 hours. However, if you are waking up looking like and feeling like the walking dead, later that day, you may have a spike in your cravings for anything sweet (sugar). This also will not help motivate you to turn off Hulu at a reasonable time. But if you know what the lack of sleep will do to your skin, then maybe that will get you to push the off button on your remote. Having a lack of sleep can cause inflammation in parts of your body, organs, and yup, you guessed it, your skin, which is the largest organ in your body.
Better quality sleep can help reduce the signs of aging, reduce wrinkles, puffy eyes, dark circles, and add radiance to your complexion. They don't call it beauty sleep for anything.
6. Show Your Skin Some Love and Get a Valentine's Day Facial
The answer for skin radiance and plumpness is a facial.
Traditional facial consists of multisite treatment, cleanse, exfoliate, and deeply hydrate. If you want your complexion to look much healthier for Valentine's Day, treat yourself to a facial; your skin will be glowing, way more nourished, and your skin will have a more even texture and tone.
Want to have a more youthful appearance for Valentine's Day? A facial will deliver this for all skin types. Treat yourself to a spa facial; if not, why not make one for yourself.
