With Valentine’s Day coming up, there are lots of us that might a have a special date night planned. We’ve already shared the makeup looks we love but if you want to know the real secret for how to get good skin, then it is all about the preparation. Uncover the skincare we swear by before a special night out.
What Gives you Good Skin?
When we say ‘good skin’, what we mean is skin that is well hydrated, has an even and smooth texture and glows with radiance.
Makeup and foundation can help fake good skin but really it all comes down to your skincare and lifestyle. Like Dr Harold Lancer says, it is all about what you eat, how much you sleep and how much stress you’re under.
However, skincare can go a long way to helping your skin, leaving it prepped and ready for makeup; it is an essential even for expert makeup artists! Even models can need help to smooth and prep their skin. The key is looking for products that can help hydrate, clarify and smooth your skin.
The Best Skincare for Great Looking Skin
Getting ready for a special night is usually half the fun; a long shower, styling your hair and getting your skin ready for some special makeup. If you want to know how to get good skin for that special night, then just follow all our tips and product recommendations:
The Week Before
It isn’t just brides that should think about their skincare ahead of a big day. Even if you are usually a little haphazard with your skincare, getting into a good routine a week or so before your date should help battle concerns like dullness or blemishes.
- Make sure to cleanse properly every night. A good cleansing routine might be basic but it so essential for keeping your skin healthy and happy. Try something like the new Omorovicza Moor Cream Cleanser to help melt away any makeup or dirt.
- Try a Glycolic toner to boost your glow. Liquid exfoliants like the cult Pixi Glow Tonic or the innovative Alpha H Liquid Gold help to revitalise and unclog your complexion. Apply to a cotton pad and sweep over the face after cleansing every other day.
- Go for a targeted serum. Serums might be a skincare step you don’t usual bother with, but they are brilliant for intensive treatment. Which one to go for will depend on your skin’s needs but the Vit C-30 Serum from The Hero Project is a great one to help brighten and protect the skin.
