Skincare secrets for a last-minute glow on Valentine's Day

Skincare secrets for a last-minute glow on Valentine's Day

Whether you're spending Valentine's Day with the girls or with a beau, there's no denying we wouldn't pass on an extra swoon-worthy glow on that special day. And though there's hardly time for drastic changes – let's be real, you can't wave a magic skincare wand – there are still steps you can take to ensure you look your best with a few effective must-haves in your corner.

Read on for our quick guide on some of the instantly-gratifying things you can do so you can put your best foot forward this V-day.


1. Exfoliate your skin, top to toe

When time is of the essence, opt for a quick exfoliation to unveil fresh, glowing skin. Sand & Sky's Flash Perfection Exfoliating Treatment is your secret weapon. In just five minutes, this treatment buffs away dead skin cells, leaving your complexion revitalised and radiant.

If you're looking to show some skin for the occasion, consider using a body scrub for a buffed, polished physique to complement your outfit. Our Smoothing Body Sand not only sloughs off dry skin and other unwanted impurities from your skin's surface, it also dresses the skin in a veil of macadamia oil to nourish and soften it. Laced with 100% biodegradable mica glitter, the scrub also leaves behind a subtle shimmer on your skin.

2. Give yourself a hydrating treatment

Instantly revive lacklustre, dehydrated skin with the Intense Hydrating Mask. Its lightweight formula absorbs quickly, providing an instant burst of moisture and leaving your skin feeling plump and refreshed.

3. Keep pimple patches on hand

Why we seem to only get pimples right before an event must be one of the greatest unexplained phenomena of all time – but there's always a solution. Keep our Dual Action Blemish Patches handy for emergency blemishes. They're designed to protect, treat and pull out the gunk from your blemishes, getting them up and off your skin in no time. Keep these on hand so you can catch any budding zits asap.

Infused with strategic ingredients for a 2-step approach to pimple care – apply Help Me Patches to target a red spot and Bye-Bye Patches to treat a white blemish #sandandsky #blemish ♬ original sound - Sand & Sky


4. Use a detoxifying mask before the big day

Nothing feels better than clean pores, freshly cleared of buildup. No need to schedule an appointment with your facialist when you can detox your skin at home. The Porefining Face Mask absorbs the excess sebum and impurities lodged deep within your pores as it dries, leaving your skin totally clear of congestion. 

5. Layer your makeup with serum

A glowing mien comes with a good routine and treating your skin right consistently, and that takes time – but if you're looking to instantly achieve that coveted glazed donut sheen with your V-day makeup, here's a hack for you. Add a few drops of the Dreamy Glow Drops serum to your foundation to amp up the glow on your look. Enriched with vitamin C, this formula also gives you the benefits of plump, radiant skin.
