We don’t need to look like everyone else, we like individuality and highlighting our best unique features that is natural beauty. So for this Valentine’s Day, make sure your skin is beautifully YOU.

 

Our skin health tips that will make you love your look.

Day into Evening
If you’re headed out for a romantic evening, you obviously have to make some changes in your makeup, but for many women, that’s where they get lost. Do you change the shades to match your outfit or the lighting, or change everything for a completely different look? But we say start over! Create a completely fresh look with a clean face, moisturizer and then apply your foundation. Focus on your eyes first and your lips second.

 

Dealing with Skin Challenges
Pre-date breakouts that always seem to pop up at just the wrong time. Take it from us, the best defense is a great offense. Set the stage a week before the big day by booking a facial care, also making sure you are cleansing, toning and treating your skin right twice daily and you’ll thank yourself on the big night. “It’s always important to take your makeup off before bed because this is the time when your skin rejuvenates itself.” Using a precleanse as part of a double cleanse bed time regime will help you get rid of any extra residue left on your skin. Don’t forget to exfoliate! Exfoliating your skin, especially before a night out, will give you that flawless, natural glow you will love. And just a tip, it really helps with makeup application. Other skin challenges such as uneven skin tones, bumpy or rough skin, and pigmentation spots can be eliminated with a deep exfoliation treatment such as a peel or a microdermabrasion. It’s always important to keep the at home beauty regime regular, especially after a facial treatment.

 

Start with a Solid Base
Now that you have done the work and have a flawless complexion, it is time to perfect the romantic look. Hydrated skin is very important, no one likes to see flaky, uneven skin. So start with moisturized skin followed by a foundation slightly lighter than your skin color. After the foundation, lightly dust a powder that matches your skin tone over your entire face and neck. Don’t forget your neck! Use a large fluffy brush to apply bronzer to forehead, nose and cheeks, followed by a soft pink at the rose of your cheeks. Use a highlighter on the areas that need some brightening up.

For an extra sexy dewy look, lightly apply the phyto oil over your finished look. This will keep your skin hydrated, even over makeup, and also leave you glowing.
