The biggest date night of the year is just around the corner and that means pre Valentines Day prep is in order.
Whether you've got Galantines dinner with your besties or a romanic date planned with your boyfriend, you'll want to have maximum glow on V Day. Show yourself some love in the lead up to Feb 14, we've put together your next five day beauty prep plan that'll have you radiant and glowing.
5 Days Until Valentines: Face Mask
The big day is just 5 sleeps away, so we need to get cracking. Radiant, bright skin is a necessity. Give yourself a mini facial at home to deep clean your skin and remove any impurities. Start by double cleansing your face with a gel cleanser. Then go in with a hydrating face mask. Whether you're a sheet mask kinda babe or prefer clay, either will help replenish the skin and lock in that glow we’re after.
4 Days Until Valentines: Teeth Whitening
Pearly whites are a must. With so many DIY teeth whitening kits on the market, you’ll be spoilt for choice. At least 4 days out, be sure to get those teeth looking whiter than snow. BB HQ hack: when date night rolls around, to make your teeth look more crisp and white, wear an apple red hue lipstick. This not only makes those teeth pop but will also make your lips look extra plump and kissable.
3 Days Until Valentines: Hair Mask
Luscious, volumised hair for the main event? Yes please. Show your hair some love and pack it with hydration. Apply a hair mask onto damp hair and brush the product through then sweep it back into a slow slicked bun using a claw clip. We recommend leaving a hair mask in for a minimum of 10 minutes so your strands can soak up all the nourishing goodness. For the next 3 days be sure to steer clear of heated hair tools. This will bring down the luminosity and shine!
2 Days Until Valentines: Lip Treatments
If you’re expecting a cheeky kiss on Valentines Day, be sure to do a lip mask. Locking hydration into the lips will ensure a plumper, more perfect looking pout. Start by exfoliating your lips with a scrub. Once your lips are free from dead skin, apply a super nourishing balm. We love sleeping in a lip mask and waking up with softer than ever lips.
1 Day Until Valentines: Fake Tan
What is Valentine’s Day without the perfect tan? To complement any makeup look or any outfit be sure to fake tan the night before your date. You are a fake tan expert, so you know the drill. Shave, exfoliate and shower. Reach for your Ultra Dark or Original Dark Self Tanning Mousse and apply with our Luxe Tanning Mitt. Marinate in your tan until you reach our desired colour, then shower.
