In this blog, we will share some amazing tips for glowing skin on Valentine’s Day. Whether you’re planning a solo date as an expression of self-love or a romantic night with your loved one, following these skin care tips for Valentine’s Day will help you look your best for your date night.

Get Valentine’s Ready with these Beauty Tips

Valentine’s Day is all about love, and hence, it is the perfect time to pamper your skin with some love and care. In the next section, we have shared some tips for glowing skin for a date night on Valentine’s Day.

Pre-Valentine’s Day Skin Care Tips

If you want that dreamy, flawless Valentine’s glow, waiting until the night before the special day to start skin care is not a good idea. Here are some skin care tips for Valentine's Day that you can start following a week before your big date night:

Healthy diet

Want skin that glows from the inside out? Then make sure you eat right for at least a week before V-Day. While eating a balanced diet is always important, it is especially significant before any big event. Here are some tips you can follow to get glowing skin on Valentine’s Day:

  • Stay away from sugar and dairy foods to avoid last-minute acne breakouts.
  • Start your days by drinking a cup of hot water with honey and lemon in it. This helps detoxify your body and flush out toxins, giving the skin a healthy glow.
  • Eat a diet rich in antioxidants. Broccoli, spinach, carrots, avocados, bananas, apples, and watermelon are a few foods that you can include in your diet.
  • Lastly, stay hydrated. Drinking enough water is the key to keeping your skin healthy from the inside out.

Detox bath

A relaxing and rejuvenating aromatic bath can help detox the body and mind. Adding essential oils to your bath water can help flush out toxins, calm the mind, and relieve stress. Ensure that you have a detox bath at least once in the week leading up to Valentine’s Day.

To prepare the bath, dilute lavender essential oil with almond oil and add it to your bath water. You can also use aromatherapy candles and put on music to have an extra refreshing experience.

Bonus tip: Use lukewarm water (not hot water) for your detox bath. Hot water can strip the skin of its natural oils, leaving it dehydrated. Warm water will help unclog the pores and ease body ache.

Beauty sleep

Time to channel your inner sleeping beauty! A sound sleep for 7-9 hours is the secret to keeping your skin radiant and glowing. Nighttime is the best for skin renewal, which is why it is recommended to use skin-repairing night creams before going to bed. Ensure that you get quality sleep every night and use Aroma Magic Vitamin E Night Cream for some extra rejuvenation and a radiant wake-up glow.


A facial can make all the difference to your Valentine’s Day glow. It helps increase blood flow, reduces dullness and puffiness on the face, imparts a radiant glow, and revitalises the skin from within. Aroma Magic Fruit Facial Kit is formulated with a blend of essential oils and fruit extracts. It is one of the best facial kits for glowing skin.

However, ensure that you get the facial done 5-7 days before the occasion. Facials (even the ones with natural ingredients) can sometimes result in skin irritation and inflammation. Getting a facial a day or two before V-Day might not give your skin a chance to heal.

Skin Care Tips to Follow on Valentine’s Day

As on any other day, it is crucial to follow a CTOM (Cleansing, Toning, Oiling, and Moisturising) routine on Valentine’s Day too. A CTOM routine helps you have a flawless base for makeup. Cleansing removes impurities from the skin and gives you a clean canvas to apply makeup. Toning helps restore the pH balance and minimises the size of enlarged pores. Applying a skin oil and moisturiser will help keep your makeup hydrated and dewy.

While a CTOM routine is a must for healthy skin, you need to put in some extra effort for Valentine’s Day skin care. We recommend exfoliating, using a face pack, and applying under-eye gel for that extra touch of glam for your special date night.

  • Exfoliation
    Exposure to everyday pollution can result in the accumulation of dirt and impurities on the skin. While daily cleansing can help remove the dirt from the skin’s surface, it is not enough to remove dead skin cells from deeper layers. The accumulation of dead skin cells can make the skin appear rough and make your makeup look dry.

    Exfoliation will slough away dead skin cells and help ensure smooth makeup application.

  • Face Pack
    If you are fed up with your makeup looking dry and cakey, using a hydrating face pack can be a game-changer for you. Along with applying a moisturiser, incorporating Aroma Magic Hydrating Seaweed Pack into your Valentine’s Day skin care routine will give your skin a boost of moisture and impart a healthy glow. Use this face pack after exfoliation and toning.

    Bonus tip: You can also use our Hydrating Seaweed Pack as a primer before applying makeup.

  • Under Eye Gel
    Most people skip this step in a skin care routine, but it is extremely important. It can give you those bright and dreamy eyes you’ve always wanted. Stress, lack of sleep, and exhaustion can make your eyes look dull and puffy. Aroma Magic Under Eye Gel is a lightweight eye gel that absorbs quickly and is perfect for application under makeup. It helps fade dark circles, hydrates the under-eye area, and soothes puffiness.


Valentine's Day is a perfect opportunity to practice self-care and give your skin the love it deserves. By following the simple skincare tips mentioned in this blog, you can achieve glowing and healthy skin that will make you feel confident and radiant on the day of love. So, show your skin some love and get ready to dazzle this Valentine's Day!
