Whether you’re having a romantic candlelit dinner with your significant other or enjoying Galentine’s Day with friends, we have all the V-Day beauty tips you need to help you look and feel your best on the big day. Set your heart aflutter with beautiful skin from head to toe, gorgeous! Here are 3 easy beauty tips for beautiful skin on Valentine’s Day and beyond:
Prepping your skin for V-Day
A little pre-date stress can go hand in hand with a pre-date breakout. Sometimes, blemishes pop up at the least appropriate times or right before your big V-Day celebration. No need to worry, stay consistent with your skincare routine leading up to Valentine’s Day for great skin. You should never skip out on your go-to beauty regimen, but this week it’s important to go the extra mile. However, if you see a pesky blemish that is soon to pop up, visit your esthetician for a pre V-Day beauty treatment. Your esthetician will be able to apply a brightening mask or give you a topical treatment that will not irritate your skin before the big day. The best canvas for flawless makeup application is clear, glowing skin.
Makeup application on the big day…
Now that your skin is well taken care of, give your skin a bit of extra love and radiance. Get sunkissed for Valentine’s Day with an airbrush spray tan from your favorite facility for a more even complexion. If you don’t have time for an airbrush spray tan, applying a liquid primer or highlighter underneath your everyday foundation can help your skin look dewy without being overly shiny. We like the Laura Mercier Foundation Primer in Radiance because it primes the skin with an invisible layer that smoothes over and hugs the skin with a luminous touch. Radiant skin is the perfect way to start your Valentine’s Day with a bright forecast!
Flawless from head to toe…
A quick fix for smooth V-Day skin is exfoliation. Dead skin on the surface of your skin can make cellulite indentations seem deeper so a little exfoliation can go a long way. Caffeine-based exfoliants are some of our favorites because when they are applied topically, they can stimulate blood flow and result in smoother, firmer skin. If you don’t have time to visit the spa for some V-Day self-love, making DIY body scrub is a great alternative. We gathered our favorite at-home recipes, including lavender vanilla, banana sugar, coconut sugar, coffee and more, so you can give your skin the love it deserves!

It doesn’t have to be Valentine’s Day to embrace your skin. Infrared heat therapy benefits include skin beautification for year-round love and beauty. Body treatments with immersive far infrared heat include beautifying benefits, such as the promotion of skin and blood tissue regeneration. Far infrared body wraps can help regenerate the skin, fight wrinkles, normalize digestive and metabolic control. Learn more about year-round skin beautification here.
Happy V-Day, beauties! We wish you love and beauty on Valentine’s Day and beyond.
