Prepping your skin is always an essential ritual of a night out and sets the tone for a memorable "date night", no matter what adventures may unfold.
Even if you’re not currently in a relationship, you still need to go out on dates… with yourself!
We can spend a lot of time working at a company in our own home office and when it comes time to attend a social gathering, we might just default to “chilling at home”. We can get so comfortable at home that going out seems to be so much work.
But humans are inherently social.
We enjoy developing meaningful relationships with others. Connecting with others is one of life's simple (and necessary) pleasures. There is only so much “Alone Time” we can endure!
And with social interaction comes the desire to look lovely.
That doesn't mean you need Red Carpet full glam every time, but it does include looking in the mirror and feeling confident with what you see.
Admiring how you put together a cute outfit from clothes you haven't worn for awhile, accessorizing with some splashes of jewelry, and of course the happy glow of your healthy skin staring back at you.
I want to help you look your best for your date night, so I thought I’d put together this quick guide on how to prep your skin for it. You can be sure your skin will be radiant and youthful, leaving you feeling your most confident for any occasion!
5 WAYS TO PREP YOUR SKIN FOR DATE NIGHT
1. EXFOLIATE THE DAY PRIOR
Exfoliating the day before your date is an absolute must. It’s like giving your skin a
little wake-up call, a gentle nudge to shed those dull, lifeless cells and reveal the
glowing, radiant complexion that’s hiding just beneath the surface.
Think of it as a way to prepare your skin for its close-up, to make it look and feel
its very best.
There are physical exfoliators that contain fine particles and chemical exfoliators like BHAs and AHAs (such as our DEEP ENZYME CLEANSE) that are gentle and effective, working in harmony with your skin and leaving it nourished and rejuvenated…
All to leave your date night’s companion utterly entranced.
2. USE A HYDRATING MASK THE DAY OF
Using a hydrating mask like our BLUEBERRY BOOST MASK the day of a date can
work wonders for your skin, like giving it a big glass of water! This plumps up your
skin and will give it that soft, supple, and dewy look that’s so irresistible.
Hydrating masks can help replenish your skin’s moisture levels, especially
important if you have dry skin. Hydrated skin has better texture, tone, and feels
soft to the touch. These masks can also reduce redness or irritation to leave you
with a glow that will have your date wondering what your secret is.
3. MASSAGE TO SCULPT & TONE
Using a facial massage stone before a date can be a truly transformative
experience for your skin. Not only does it help to stimulate blood flow and promote lymphatic drainage, but it can also help to sculpt and contour your facial features, giving you a more defined and youthful-looking complexion.
Gently massaging your skin with a stone like our GUA SHA STONE will help release tension and increase circulation, leaving your skin feeling rejuvenated and refreshed.
4. APPLY AN EYE GEL
Applying an eye gel before a date is great for your under-eye area, like a burst
of hydration for delicate skin, to help firm, lift, and reduce the appearance of
fine lines and wrinkles.
It can help to reduce puffiness and dark circles, which is
especially important if you maybe didn’t get enough sleep the night before…
we’ve all been there!
Eye gels like our BOTANICAL LIFT EYE GEL can also help to tighten and firm the
skin around your eyes, giving you a more youthful and refreshed appearance.
5. USE YOUR MOISTURIZER
One last absolute must? Using your moisturizer before a date.
Moisturizers like our CREAM can help to improve the texture and tone of your skin, reducing any dryness and flakiness, and leaving it soft and supple to the touch.
You’re also promoting cell renewal and support your skin’s natural barrier function,
preventing environmental damage and other signs of aging.
Another special benefit of moisturizers like our CREAM is to help create a
smooth, even base for makeup, allowing it to go on flawlessly and stay in place
longer (you can also use our BLUE TANSY HYDRATING FACE MIST as a setting
No matter the occasion or who it’s with, date night calls for a little extra pampering and self-care.
