SKIN CARE TIPS BEFORE DATE NIGHT

If you have a date night coming back, then it is likely that you want your skin to be sporting a beautiful, radiant glow. Rather than turning to makeup for a quick fix, here are a few tips that will help you to have your skin looking its very best just in time for date night.

Exfoliate the Night Before 

While you may want to leave the exfoliation to just a couple of hours before your date, it would be best to exfoliate the night before, as this will give your skin some time to calm down and regenerate. No matter which method of exfoliation you prefer, make sure that you apply a thick layer of moisturizer as soon as you are done, as exfoliation leaves your skin quite vulnerable, and the moisturizer will offer some added protection.

Invest in a Primer 

If you are planning on wearing makeup for your date night, which most women do, then investing in a quality primer is a great idea. Primers are designed to be applied onto the face after a moisturizer, but before any makeup, and create a blank canvas onto which your makeup can grip. This then allows your makeup to last for so much longer, and prevents any unsightly smudges. Try to look for a primer that also contains a wide range of antioxidants, as this will give your skin a healthy boost at the same time.

A Hydrating Face Mask 

If you tend to suffer from dry or dehydrated skin, then a hydrating face mask is one of the best ways to nourish your skin before date night. These contain powerful active ingredients that penetrate the skin’s layers and inject it with a dose of hydration, leaving skin looking fresh and plump afterwards. Hydrating from within is also important, so try to increase your water consumption a few days before date night.

The Eye Area 

Everybody wants their eyes to be sparkling on date night, which means that you need to tackle any dark shadows or under-eye circles. The best way to do this is with an eye serum or cream, preferably one that contains the active ingredients needed to target your specific issues. Simply apply a small amount to the skin around your eyes, before applying your moisturizer, and this will help to smooth out any fine lines, while brightening the entire area.

If you usually tend to take quite a while preparing for date night, do not forget that a large amount of your date night skin care can be done the day before. From exfoliation to face masks, these steps can be carried out in advance, leaving you with plenty of time to spend on choosing outfits, hairstyles and more.

SIMPLE WAYS TO EXPRESS YOUR LOVE

When it comes to romantic relationships, it is essential that you know exactly how to express your love to that special someone. Even if grand, extravagant gestures are not your style, there are many simple ways in which you can express your love, and show just how much you really care.

Put Your Feelings Into Words

One of the simplest ways to express your love is also one that many people tend to forget about, and this is verbalizing what you are feeling inside. Your loved one cannot read your mind, which is why you need to be able to put your feelings into words. If you find this difficult, it may be easier to write your feelings down rather than speaking them out loud, whether this may be in the form of little cards hidden around the house, or a long, love-filled letter.

Physical Affection

While not everyone is comfortable with full-on PDA, physical touch is a great way to create intimacy and to show your partner that you really do find them irresistible. Whether you make an effort to hold hands more often, or simply give your partner random hugs throughout the day, physical affection shows your loved one that you really enjoy being close to them.

Acts of Kindness

An act of kindness can really go a long way, and kindness is actually one of the best predictors of long term satisfaction, as well as stability, in a relationship. Think about what you can do to make your loved one’s life easier or less stressful, whether this may be helping out with the workload at home by offering to cook dinner each night, or simply providing a listening ear at the end of a hectic day, as these small gestures can make a huge difference.

Quality Time

Quality time is so important in a relationship, but can often be hard to come by. To show your loved one that you are really serious about spending time together and creating new memories, set aside a specific time each day, or week, for the two of you to spend together. Whether this is an hour every evening where you mute all other distractions, or date night every weekend, increasing the amount of quality time that you spend with your special someone will really strengthen your bond.

In order for your relationship to really thrive, you need to express your love regularly, even if this may be in the smallest of ways. From writing a love letter to upping the physical affection, each of these gestures is likely to be extremely well-received, and will help your relationship to blossom.
