Whether you’ve been married for a long time like me, or if you are “dating”, date nights are so important! If you’re anything like me, when I look my best, I feel my best, and why not WOW your man. Take the time to easily prep your skin for a beautiful glow that will have your date enamored. Here are 7 great tips for healthy, smooth and clear skin for your next date night.
1. Start the night before
Consider using a sheet masque prior to bed. Incredible skin demands an incredible masque. Lumière de Vie Moisture Intense Sheet Masque is the definitive treatment that is formulated with aloe to intensely moisturize while reducing oxidative damage from the everyday elements. Utilizing the powerful hydrating effects of hyaluronic acid, this specialized sheet masque instantly revitalizes dry, aged skin on contact. Allow 10-25 minutes for the masque to activate and then gently remove from skin. Lightly massage any remaining product into face, neck and décolleté. Follow with your favorite moisturizer. Your skin will be soft the next morning.
2. Remove your makeup
A blank canvas is the best way to begin a work of art. Leaving residual makeup on your face can block pores and cause breakouts. Don’t apply new makeup over old makeup, it’s important to begin your pre-date skincare routine with a clean face.
Try dabbing some Lumière de Vie® Micellar Cleanser on a cotton pad to remove your makeup. This is an all-in-one, waterless cleanser that gently removes makeup and purifies skin with no need to rinse or scrub. Scientifically designed with micelle molecules that lift dirt, makeup and impurities on contact, this advanced formula cleanses and conditions without clogging pores, making it the perfect choice for all skin types.
3. Wash your face
Double cleansing your face is important. This ensures you have removed any excess debris for a fully fresh and blemish-free face.
To avoid any last minute disturbances in your skin, use a soap-free product like Lumière de Vie Facial Cleanser. This helps to moisturize while cleansing, refreshing and invigorating the skin. The appearance of rough, dry skin is visibly diminished, creating skin that is softer and smoother.
4. Tone your skin
Now, your face will be clean and product-free, which means it’s time tone and bring your skin back to its prime pH level.
Grab a gentle toner, like the Lumière de Vie Toner, and apply the toner to cleansed skin using a cotton pad, then gently massage into the face and neck in small, circular motions with your fingertips. Allow the toner to absorb into the skin before applying treatments or moisturizer. Follow with Lumière de Vie Serum Concentrate, Lumière de Vie Illuminating Fading Fluid and Lumière de Vie Intense Rejuvenation Crème for best results.
5. Perfect your complexion
It’s common to skip this step, but we highly recommend against it! The protective properties of serums are absolutely worth it for gorgeous date night skin.
We like to use a hydrating serum, like Lumière de Vie Serum Concentrate, suitable for all skin types. Apply evenly to your face. This is the next generation skincare that utilizes nature and science with effective brighteners, powerful antioxidants and the power of the sea. Potent extracts that promote healthy skin collagen for firmer-looking skin, while reducing the appearance of fine lines, delivering extreme radiance, clarity and renewal.
6. Keep hydrated
This is key for that dewy glow beloved by all,
The best moisturizers are the ones that also protect you from the sun. Use a product like Lumière de Vie Intense Rejuvenation Crème to hydrate and protect your face. Let your skin absorb a super-hydrating, intensive repair treatment developed for chronically-stressed skin and designed to work with the skin’s renewal process. An ultra rich, fast-absorbing formula specifically formulated to reduce the appearance of lines, wrinkles and age spots as it imparts skin with the look of improved radiance and newly-found firmness.
It’s stressful enough worrying about what to order at dinner, don’t let the threat of breakouts and dry skin rain on your romantic nights out.
