Valentine’s Day puts a lot of emphasis on others. But how do you show yourself some affection? While there’s nothing wrong with a thoughtful gesture for your nearest and dearest, Valentine’s Day is the perfect excuse to give yourself some well-deserved affection. Ready to show yourself some love?
First, instantly lift your spirit by adding invigorating fragrance to your space. Indulge in a scent that energizes and boosts your mood, so you feel nothing short of fabulous. Whether you’re into candles or incense, there’s no wrong way of doing it.
Next, show your face and hair some TLC. Nothing feels as luxurious and indulgent as a rich mask. Optimize your time and transform both your skin and hair in a matter of minutes.
For the face, we recommend Farmacy Honey Potion Renewing Antioxidant Hydration Mask, Embryolisse Hydra Mask or Charlotte Tilbury Goddess Skin Clay Mask.
For the hair, we recommend Briogeo Be Gentle, Be Kind Avocado + Kiwi Mega Moisture Superfood Mask or Sisley Paris Regenerating Hair Care Mask.
We love a good glass of vino as much as the next person, but may we suggest swapping out the alcohol for a feel-good drink instead? Opt for something packed with powerful nutrients that will enhance you from the inside out.
Nothing is more calming and uplifting than some me time in the bathtub, so flood yourself with some good energy (literally). While you let your masks absorb and sip on your drink of choice, submerge yourself in your favorite bath salt. Soothe your skin, calm your nerves, and melt away the tension with restorative bath salts.
After rinsing off and moisturizing, use an effective facial roller to replicate a professional face massage at home. De-puff and tighten the skin while draining unwanted toxins. Go ahead, put your best face forward.
Finish with your favorite shade of red. Nothing feels sexier than a flattering red lip. No matter what you have planned for the rest of the day, it’ll leave you feeling powerful and ready to conquer the world.
