This Valentine’s Day, Make a Date With Your Face

Show your skin how much you care!


They say you should love the skin you’re in, so why not spend this February 14 giving your face some love? Taking care of it really comes down to two distinct phases: 1) Doing things that remove dead skin, dirt, and excess oil from your skin, and 2) soothing, hydrating, and replenishing the skin to protect your face and keep it looking its best.

Start in a warm shower — the hotter it is, the more oils are going to be removed — and exfoliate your skin with a washcloth or brush to remove the dead skin cells that can cause pimples and ingrown hairs. Use a mild cleanser, like our Oil Control Face Wash, to scrub away the dirt. Then you’re ready to shave! Grab your shave cream or shave butter to lubricate your skin, then use a clean razor. Always shave with the grain; going against it will give you a closer shave, but makes it much more likely you’ll irritate your skin or give it razor bumps.

Now the healing begins. When you step out of the shower, gently pat your face dry and moisturize it. Not only does this help rehydrate your skin, it’ll also help make it feel healthier and look younger.

After that, why not buy it a romantic dinner? Your face works hard for you, so show it some well-deserved appreciation.
