It is no surprise that Valentine’s Day has become a very special occasion in current times. We spend hours choosing the right outfit, right accessories, arousing perfumes, etc. But none of this will make sense if you don’t complement it with glowing, healthy skin. Hydrated, healthy skin will work its magic. But, how do you attain it? Dreading question, isn’t it? Worry not because we have curated a list of the top 10 Valentine’s Day skincare tips so that you can achieve that glamorous look for your special date.
Valentine’s day skincare tips
1. Stay hydrated
Water flushes out the toxins, keeps your skin hydrated, maintains the elasticity of your skin, balances your pH levels, and prevents acne. So start drinking an adequate amount of water every day (6-8 glasses).
2. Moisturize every day
Moisturizing religiously provides your skin with all the essential nutrients, retains water, and protects it from damage while giving you soft, supple skin.
3. Cleanse religiously
Clean your face with a cleanser at least twice a day, morning and night. Not only will it remove the dirt and oil but also enhance the impact of other products.
4. Exfoliate twice a week
Exfoliation removes these dead cells, unclogs your pores, and allows for deeper absorption of products. Want a quick tip? Always follow it with a moisturizer.
5. Apply a sunscreen
Don’t step out in the sun without applying sunscreen. Sun rays can damage your skin cells, cause tan, and aggravate acne. Opt for a sunscreen with a minimum of 30 SPF and reapply it every 2 hours.
6. Put on a sheet mask
7. Eat healthily
Consuming oily and junk food leads to breakouts and exacerbates existing acne. Foods high in sugar can also contribute to acne. Include more green vegetables and fibrous food, and watch your skin glow!
8. Use the right products
Every skin type has different requirements. Choose a product that works in harmony with your skin and has no harsh chemicals. A mismatch will damage your skin’s protective barrier, cause acne, and strip it of its natural oils.
9. Remember: Little is more
Avoid applying too many products at once and gradually introduce new products in your regime if you wish to. Avoid the following combinations: niacinamide with vitamin C, salicylic acid with glycolic acid, retinol with vitamin C, and retinol with salicylic acid.
10. Sleep well
Get a minimum of 7-8 hours of sound sleep every night. This will not only help you function well throughout the day but also provide your skin with enough time to repair itself. Remember: Even when you are asleep, your skin is working.
