Your Skincare Routine for glowing skin on Valentine’s Day

As Valentine’s day is right around the corner, you’d think it’s time to up your beauty regime to make sure your skin is glowing for the big day. However, it’s actually a lot simpler than you’d think. It turns out you don’t need a time-consuming routine with so many products.

With that being said, here are three quick and easy steps to help your skin look healthy and glow!

Use a Face Cleanser

Many people forget that cleansing your skin is a very important step in any skincare routine. Cleansing in the morning and at night (before going to bed) is vital to keep it healthy. When cleansing, choose cleansers that are gentle, dermatologically tested and sulphate free. Make sure to choose products that are appropriate for your skin type.

For dry skin, select a product with ingredients like Aloe Vera, which help to soften and moisturise the skin, like our Soothing Aloe Cleanser.

For oily skin, pick a cleanser with orange or citrus oil, like our Polishing Citrus Cleanser which can leave your skin feeling refreshed. Remember to always use lukewarm water when removing or preparing products before they go on your skin, as hot water may irritate it.

Exfoliate

When you’re young, your body automatically sheds skin every few weeks but as you get older, that process is altered and slows down. Exfoliating your face can leave your skin looking smoother and brighter in minutes. When used once a week, a good exfoliator can help to remove dead skin cells from the surface of the skin.

Exfoliating may help skincare products to be absorbed into your skin, giving you the benefits they have to offer.

Look for products with blueberry seeds, grapefruit, pomegranate or jojoba beads, such as our Instant Reveal Berry Scrub. It has exfoliating properties which support the achieving effect of softer, smoother skin.

Hydrate Your Skin

Everyone is aware of how important it is to drink enough water to keep your body well hydrated, but it is just as important for your skin. When your skin is hydrated, it helps it to look beautiful and has a radiant glow.

A daytime moisturiser is very important when maintaining the skin’s moisture barrier and nourishes the skin. When choosing a moisturiser, look for products which contain antioxidants such as vitamins C and E.

Our Daily Glow Moisturiser contains both of these vitamins, to help skin look more glowing and feel softer and smoother. When applying your moisturiser, rub it into your skin gently using circular motions and upward movements to keep it looking taut and plump.

Having healthier skin is one of the key elements to make it glow. There’s no time like the present to start preparing for Valentine’s day, so what are you waiting for?
