As the day of love is fast approaching, one of the best ways to prep is to set some time aside to care for yourself – after all, you should always love yourself first! Whether you have a date scheduled for this upcoming 2/14 or enjoying a quiet evening at home with your other half (or staying solo), here’s our best tips to get you prepped using some ultra-sensorial and transformative beauty products:
Exfoliate the P.M. before
Exfoliating is a weekly skincare step you don’t ever want to bypass, because it will gently shed the dead skin cells, unclog pores and prep your skin so that the following products you apply can penetrate and work better. Most importantly, your complexion will be left super-radiant and fresh. We recommend using the mechanical Seeds & Flowers Exfoliant, with organic Turmeric and Diatomaceous earth for any skin type – even sensitive. If you tend to have oilier or combination skin, a great option is using the AHA-based (glycolic acid) Phyto-Peeling Gel Mask. Bonus: it only takes 3 minutes!
Hydrate! and then hydrate some more
Hydration is the key to beautiful skin, no matter your skin type. And, especially after newly exfoliating your skin, now is the time to feed it with proper hydration. We cannot suggest enough the Prebiotic + Probiotic Hydration Serum, because its innovative water-gel-like texture is a quick drink of water for your skin. Its formulated with a natural Prebiotic and Probiotic complex to balance the skin’s microbiome, plus Hyaluronic Acid to instantly increase hydration by 47% after only 1 use. Your skin will look smooth, even and super-glowy as you step into V-day.
Your hair needs a mask too
Give hair a healthy dose of natural hydration so it looks extra lush on the day of love. Use the 99% natural Ayurvedic Plants Repairing Hair Mask. Inspired by the beauty secrets of India- the hair of Indian women is famous all over the world for its beauty, length and vigor. This intensely rich, concentrated hair mask treatment combines the strengthening and protective power of traditional Ayurvedic Plants to restore damaged hair. After shampooing, apply a large dab of Ayurvedic Plant Repair Hair Mask and massage into the hair from the roots to the ends. Leave on for 3 minutes, then rinse thoroughly with water.
Top off your home manicure
Finish off your home manicure with the ultra-hydrating and silky-soft Angel Hand Cream. This hand cream does it all- it contains a unique combination of pioneer ingredients from traditional Chinese pharmacopoeia to hydrate, strengthen nails and prevents the appearance of pigmentation spots.
Spark the senses with Rose
Rose is a well-known symbol of love and it has a captivating, yet soothing aroma. Its essential oil is very precious and is soothing and relaxing to calm the nerves, providing a nurturing, warm feeling. When you are ready to unwind and “get in the mood”, draw a warm bath and add in the Renewing Phyto-Aromatic Shower & Bath Oil which contains high-quality Rose Absolute and Ginger essential oils. Soak for 15-20 minutes and enjoy this ultimate self-care ritual. Skin is left healthy, glowing and lightly scented with the natural aromas.
