With Valentine’s Day less than a fortnight away, start preparing your skin now so you look fresh, beautiful and utterly loveable come February 14th
These essential beauty tips – and fantastic products - will help you on your way…
A good cleanser is one of life's little essentials and is part of your daily skin care routine. We love Ahava All in One Toning Cleanser it is great for those who are time poor or traveling as it is a 3-in-1, eye makeup remover, cleanser and toner. Enriched with botanicals it leaves your skin feeling toned and soft.
Nothing is quite as gorgeous as smooth, even, blemish-free skin. Our favourite is Skinstitut Enzymatic Micro Peel. It provides instant exfoliation and leaves the skin feeling fresh and hydrated. Suitable for all skin types especially the most sensitive skins such as roaccutane users, rosacea, eczema and psoriasis. It is so gentle it can be used as often as needed.
When you’re preparing for a big date, nothing feels quite as luxurious or helpful, as relaxing with a good face masque. Victoria Beckham’s favourite is Dermalogica Age Smart Multivitamin Power Recovery Masque. This is a powerful masque containing antioxidants and vitamins to help promote healthy radiant skin.
Quench Thirsty Skin
For plump, fresh, glowing skin, moisturise morning and night after cleansing. ASAP Advance Hydrating Moisturiser contains powerful antioxidants to repair and rehydrate the skin. Regular use helps to reduce the appearance of aging and sun damage skin.
Wake up feeling good as new
Imagine going to bed at night, knowing that your skin imperfections and inflammations are being repaired as you snooze. Alpha-H Liquid Gold is the ideal treatment to use in the run-up to Valentine’s Day to brighten and revitalise tired, ageing skin, and radically improve the appearance of your complexion.
A Prime Start
If you want picture perfect make up on Valentine’s Day, after moisturising use Dermalogica Age Smart SkinPerfect Primer SPF30 to help reduce the look of large pores and to minimise fine lines and wrinkles. The benefit of a primer is to help your make up look beautiful all evening.
For the perfect finish, enjoy your date with the ultimate make up confidence. Ahava Rich Mineral Foundation is a creamy fluid texture providing full coverage so you can hide all the imperfections, redness and uneven skin tone. With the added benefit of Shea Butter and Macadamia Nut Oil it will leave your skin feeling soft and supple.
The Perfect Valentine Tan

Summer Tan Pre-Tan Body Polish with essential oils and walnut shell exfoliates dead skin cells ready for tan application and it also has a beautiful lemon lime fragrance. Follow with the award winning St Tropez Bronzing Mousse a super-lightweight, easy-to-apply, velvety mousse delivers an ultra-even all-over tan.
