Valentine’s day has forever been one of my favourite days of the year. The first thing that pops into my mind is the dreaded fear of breaking out before the special day. This week, I decided to set aside some time to give myself a facial and to keep my skin looking vibrant, glowing, and pimple-free. Here’s what I’m doing to look and feel my best:
Step 1: Starting with a fresh and clean face, I’m using Pür: Dirty Girl Detoxifying Mudd Masque to deeply cleanse my skin. The main reason why I’m using this face mask is because it’s filled with natural ingredients and as someone with highly sensitive skin, I prefer to use something that is gentle, and that will replenish my skin with valuable vitamins and minerals. The Pascalite clay in the mask really gets into the pores for a deep clean, while cucumber extract and botanicals are used to soothe the skin. I spread a thin layer of the rosemary and cucumber scented clay all over my face avoiding the eye and mouth area. It’s super gentle and makes my skin tingle. Once it started to dry and tighten (about 15 minutes in), I rinsed it off with warm water and patted my face dry with a towel. Result: my skin felt soft and firm, while my face was glowing.
Step 2: I always like to follow up a mask with a moisturizer to keep my face soft and hydrated. I’m using the Bio Beautè: Soothing Cream Sensitive Skin with Cherry Pulp. It has aloe vera in it that helps to soothe irritation, while plum and cherry pulp extracts nourish the skin. It’s light and absorbs well. I love the scent more than anything; it has this subtle aroma of sweet cherries and apricots that follows me wherever I go. My skin looks healthy, and vibrant, while my face feels soft and smells sweet; perfect for Valentine’s Day.
