Valentines day is just around the corner, whether you have a special someone or you're hoping to attract the glare of Romeo without the lure of an ivy covered Juliet balcony, you're going to want to be feeling and looking your absolute best. Let's face it, legit pamper sessions in spa pools with hot stone massage and mud facials for afters are pretty pricey, so do it at home on the cheap and feel just as fabulous! The night before should be all about hair and face masks, hot bath with your favorite moisturizer, nail painting, glamming yourself up for a dishy dinner date with your significant other or a night on the tiles.
Start your night off with a Queen Helene facial scrub to get that skin glowing without candle light, available in a range of difference scents and formulas for different types of skin means that there's one that's perfect for your skin whether it be oily, dry or both. Soak a wash cloth in hot water and place over your face for a few minutes, this really opens your pores which allows the scrub to really get in there and clean out any rubbish. Pictured are the Queen Helene facial scrubs we stock, i personally love these because they're really gritty. I love a really harsh scrub that feels like it gets all up in there, making everything super clean. They genuinely feel like they are working as you scrub, sloughing off all those dead cells and revealing fresh, glowing skin underneath! They smell great and a little goes a long way! Available in store and also online here.
After you've scrubbed off all that dull skin you should use a face mask to help tighten those pores reducing black heads in the future.
