Valentine’s Day. For some of us it means chocolates, roses and a romantic night out at a fancy restaurant. For others, it means a glass of wine, pyjamas, pizza and a Sex and the City marathon. No matter where you find yourself on February 14, you can still feel sexy, confident and love the skin you’re in. Here are five hacks everyone can do to make this Valentine’s Day their best one yet.
It’s no secret that exercise is good for us. It keeps us fit, reduces stress and releases mood-enhancing endorphins. But did you know that exercise is also great for the skin? It works by increasing blood flow, which nourishes your skin cells and simultaneously removes waste products such as free radicals. Think of it as a face scrub from the inside! So before your big date, grab your sneakers and head out for a skin-cleansing, mood-boosting run (just don’t forget to wear your SPF 50+, we recommend Balense UV Defiance.)
Treat yourself (or someone else!)
Want to feel fresh, youthful and radiant come Valentine’s Day? Then treat yourself to one of the hottest advanced skin treatments available: a microdermabrasion. A microdermabrasion exfoliates the outer skin surface, which stimulates and reveals the younger, fresher skin underneath. This treatment will leave your skin glowing and give you a boost of body confidence come V-day.
This might sound obvious, but you’d be surprised at how many people forget to moisturise! Make sure you moisturise on Valentine’s day to keep your skin soft to the touch… You know, just in case! Using a product with active ingredients, such as Balense ReBalense Enzymatic Moisturiser, will help enhance and prolong hydration to the skin. If you truly want to love the skin you’re in, make sure you’re moisturising every day, twice a day – not just on special occasions.
If you plan on stepping into a skimpy number on the day of love, then you might want to plan ahead with some laser hair removal. Laser hair removal is available at all Australian Skin Clinics’ and is a safe, fast and effective way to reduce the appearance of excess or unwanted hair. Treatments can be tailored to all areas of the face and body, including the underarms, legs, face, bikini, chest, stomach and back.
Share the love
We have so much more control over what we give than what we receive. So empower yourself this Valentine’s Day and share the love with your partner, friend or family member. You could send a simple card of appreciation, a bunch of flowers or even better (in our opinion!) an Australian Skin Clinics gift card. You can purchase one at our online store or by visiting your local clinic.
Remember, whether you’re spending it with someone special or rockin’ solo, make sure you love the skin you’re in this Valentine’s Day!
