Wow your partner (and yourself!) with your natural beauty ? 

Valentine’s Day is a special day for all couples, and we definitely want to look our best. You’ve probably shortlisted a few outfits, coloured your hair, fixed your nails, bought that new eyeshadow palette you’ve been eyeing for a while… 

But, what about your skin? Having a good base makes a world of a difference when it comes to makeup, and we are huge advocates of that. In fact, when your skin looks good on its own, makeup can be totally optional!

Here’s some ways to prep your skin for this big day in 2 weeks! 

T-14 to Valentine’s – Set a skincare routine

Having a set skincare routine is important to maintaining your skin at its best! In fact, a little goes a long way, and you don’t need to have an elaborate skincare routine. With just 2 weeks to Valentine’s Day, follow these 5 simple application steps of < Cleanser, Toner, Serum, Moisturiser and Eye Cream > every night, and you can be sure to have supple skin that glows from within! 

Being out and about daily, our skin is exposed to pollutants like dust. It is important to cleanse your skin, so that you do not end up with an acne outbreak from having clogged pores. The ActivCalm Gentle Cleansing Milk helps to remove makeup and cleanse your skin while providing moisturising benefits too.

Follow up with the ActivCalm Skin Calming Lotion Essence, which helps to tighten pores and provide a good base for the skincare that is to follow! P.S. this toner is packed full of ingredients, and we recommend you to pat it in with your bare hands, so that none of it is wasted on your cotton pads ?

We all want to look like we have a natural glow✨, without the need for beauty filters. The LumiWhite Brightening Serum contains Vitamin C which helps to brighten dull complexions, and protect skin from free radicals. It also contains DermalRx® SRC which is clinically proven to exfoliate 375% dead skin cells for a brighter and smoother complexion in just 3 days! 

Now, to lock it all in, a moisturising cream such as the VitaLift A+ OPC Antioxidant Cream which is chock full of powerful antioxidants is key! Besides improving cellular vitality and boosting cell renewal, it also nourishes the skin and maintains its youthfulness.

Finally, to keep your peepers looking fresh, pick your favourite eye cream! Ours is the OptimaLift A+ Eye Repair Capsules which helps to lift eye contours, and prevent puffiness with key ingredients of Eyeseryl and Argireline peptides. If you’re feeling fancy, pair your eye cream with the OptimaLift A+ Intelligent Eye Revitaliser which combines High Frequency Vibration of up to 10,000 micro-vibrations per minute to activate blood circulation and promote detoxification, Hot Compress with rapid heating function of up to 45°C to soothe and relieve fatigue around the eye contours, and LED Red Light Therapy to enhance cellular activity to promote collagen regeneration and repair damaged skin cells.

T-7 to Valentine’s – Show your skin some major love

With one week left to Valentine’s, a little external help might just come in handy! A quick fix in the form of a facial will help to hydrate and brighten up your skin, provide a thorough extraction to unclog pores, and even provide benefits such as a slimmer jawline, reduced lines and wrinkles or a rosy glow. With so many types of facials to choose from, you may find yourself having a hard time choosing the right facial for your skin type. 

Here at Estetica, you’ll find yourself in good hands as a complimentary indepth skin analysis will be conducted for all new customers before a facial is tailored to suit your skin type and address your skin concerns. 

Another face treatment you can consider when preparing yourself for V-Day would be semi-permanent makeup treatments. The BB Dewy Shine Treatment is one such treatment that gives your skin a more even skin tone similar to that of a BB Cream’s finish. That is to say, you do not need to apply foundation anymore with this on and you can achieve the #iwokeuplikethis look effortlessly! 

If your (lack of) eyebrows are bothering you, why not consider going for an eyebrow embroidery? Having great brows really helps to complement your facial features, and this would be a great way to frame your face too. A huge plus point in getting an eyebrow embroidery is that this typically lasts up to 18 months, and saves you some time on your makeup routine in the morning too! 

P.S. Brows can really make or break a look ?

T-1 to Valentine’s – Keep calm and mask on

Slap on a sheet mask before your big date! Sheet masks are often packed with stronger ingredients, and can be a quick way to have your skin glowing! The VitaLift A+ Brillage Mask has been raved by many, and leaves your skin soft, supple and glowing, and the effects last so long, you can be sure to strut into your date with glowing skin even after a full day at work! 

With the above tips and tricks, go forth and get your skin ready for that big date on Valentine’s Day! We can’t wait for you to wow everyone with your amazing glowing skin!

In Good Hands,
