Whether it’s a first date or much-needed quality time with your partner, if you want to knock his socks off it’s all about the preparation. It can be both nerve wracking and exciting to prepare for a night on the town. So, if you have your beauty routine pinned down, you can go ahead and enjoy the rest.
Take a look at these valuable tips for getting ready for a night out with a special someone.
Catch some z’s. Beauty sleep is no secret! It’s important to be well rested before a date. Not only will it keep your mind sharp, but your appearance will take on that well-rested glow. A 45-minute nap has been proven to reduce bags under the eyes and boost mental capacity, so why not take the opportunity to turn in an hour earlier on the evening before your special date? You may even enjoy dreams of your sweetheart!
Bath and beyond. If you have time, taking a leisurely bath is a great idea. It will help you to prepare your skin, relax and feel fresh for the big moment. Just make sure you get out before your skin begins to wrinkle.
Always exfoliate. Exfoliating helps to remove dead skin cells which can make the skin appear dull.
Close shave. To avoid any hairy situations, keep your legs and underarms silky smooth. Make sure to develop a shaving routine in the days leading up to your date to avoid razor burn and redness. A great tip for shaving is to keep skin extremely well moisturised both before and after shaving.
Smell good. It’s great to go out smelling fresh but make sure not to overdo it with the deodorant and perfume. Spritz your favourite scent on the nape of your neck or the back of your knees and behind the ears for a lasting but subtle smell.
Keep it moist. Make sure your skin is prepped and primed for the night ahead. Keeping up with your daily lotion routine will keep your skin looking and feeling smooth and soft. Being well moisturised will also provide a great basis for applying your makeup.
Ensuring you are perfectly prepped for a date will boost your confidence and help you to strut your stuff hand in hand with your special someone.
