Start Prepping On Time

No matter, if it is a week or just one day ahead, prepping your skin a bit early for Valentine’s day, is crucial. This preparation can refer to exfoliating and giving your skin a bit of glow, by applying a face mask. 


Exfoliation - Skin, and Lips

Whenever you want your skin to look great, you should exfoliate. If you start early, you can use exfoliators twice a week or simply a night before Valentine’s day. However, make sure to use gentle exfoliators or scrubs that won’t leave your skin red and irritated. 


Many women forget to exfoliate their lips, so they end up with makeup that looks bad. Flaky lips are typical for this time of the year, but there are ways to make them soft again. Use a DIY scrub for your lips or find the one online. Once you have done it, the night before the date, make sure to apply a lot of lip balm to hydrate the lips. 


Face Mask

There is nothing better for your skin than a nice hydrating mask. Before any bigger life event, you should make yourself comfortable and apply a mask that will make your skin glowy again. If you have oily skin, there are a lot of clay masks that will clean and unclog your pores and make your skin ready for any kind of makeup. 


Address Blemishes

This step is extremely important for people with oily skin. Since blemishes don’t appear during the night, it is important to treat them on time so they won’t ruin your final makeup look. Start by using a cleanser with salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide. These ingredients should clean the skin thoroughly, remove dirt and excess oil, and unclog pores. 

 

Take a Long Bubble Bath

Nothing can make you feel more relaxed like the good old bubble bath. You can also use this time to do a body exfoliation, to apply a face mask, or simply to relax and think about your makeup. 


You can try the calming essential oils, or add some salt to your bath. This will work wonderfully on releasing the tension and relax you a bit, especially if you are going on a hot date for Valentine’s day.

Start with Good Makeup Base

When it comes to makeup, starting with a good makeup base is everything. A flawless face is half of the work done, and you need to find a perfect foundation. 


We recommend going for the foundation you usually reach for. Don’t experiment with shades and new formulations. Many foundations melt perfectly into your skin, as well as CC and BB creams. However, before applying foundation, don’t forget to use a Gymsegbe Might Punch serum, followed by our moisturizer


Be Bold with Makeup Look

Valentine’s day is once a year. It is a great opportunity to be bold with your makeup look. If you are looking for something that is tested and proven good, then we recommend red lipstick and winged eyes. If you like smokey eyes, opt for it, but with neutral lips. Don’t hesitate to add a highlighter on the top of your cheekbones, and some blush for a healthy look.
