Maybe you have a huge date with your significant other on Valentine’s Day, or maybe you both plan to stay in. Maybe you will be celebrating Galentine’s Day with your closest girlfriends, or maybe you would prefer to spend it alone. No matter what your plans are for February 14, 2014, why not put in a little preparation during these days ahead to look your absolute best; inside and out! Let’s jump right in and start with today:
Whiten your teeth.
Brighten your smile in as little as 2 hours using Crest 3D Whitestrips. Why pay hundreds of dollars when you can get the same results for a fraction of the price! Pick them up here http://www.crest.com/crest-products/3D-white-whitestrips-professional-effects.aspx or at a pharmacy near you.
Drink more water.
Drink more water today and every day! Because our body is made up of approximately %60 water, the functionality of many organs and bodily systems is directly related to our water intake. Check out these benefits of water:
- Youthful appearance
- Softer Skin
- Digestive health
- Strong nails
- Improved sleep
- Shiny hair
- Sharp cognitive function
- Less stress

Buy something new.
Treat yourself to a Valentine’s Day present. Think of it as an “I Love You” gift from you to you. Whether it’s that pair of Jimmy Choos you have been eyeing, a hot new dress like this little number from Asos, http://us.asos.com/Motel-Body-Conscious-Dress-With-Open-Back/11r7b7/?iid=3248648&cid=15950&sh=0&pge=0&pgesize=204&sort=-1&clr=Dusky+pink&mporgp=L01vdGVsL01vdGVsLUJvZHljb24tRHJlc3MtV2l0aC1PcGVuLUJhY2svUHJvZC8.
or the last season of Girls on DVD, do what makes you happy. Sometimes it’s nice to have a little reminder of how fabulous we are.
Enjoy a facial.
Two days before a big event is the perfect time to enjoy a facial. One of my favorites is the Oxygen Facial at the White Tea Med Spa. Give your skin a breath of fresh air with this cutting edge oxygen treatment to revitalize the skin, leaving you glowing and feeling invigorated. Your therapist will choose from the three tools used to impart oxygen as needed for your skin- Bio Wand, Bio Jets, and Bio Dome. The Oxygen Facial also targets fine lines, blemishes, and wrinkles!
Get a mani-pedi and spring for the extras.
Of course we all love a fresh manicure and pedicure, and that is why this was probably already part of your pre-Valentine’s Day plans; but step out of the box and make this trip to the nail salon special. I’m sure you have been offered many extras such as callus removal, hand treatments, extra massage, etc., and chances are, you usually pass on these additives for a multitude of reasons. Today, pamper yourself by indulging in the extras that you typically wouldn’t on a regular day. Not only will you look better, but you will feel better. You deserve it!
Soak your hair in a mask.
With all of the chemicals, preservatives, and active ingredients in beauty products that grace the shelves of pharmacies and salons everywhere, it makes me wonder if these products are doing more harm than good. The day before Valentine’s Day is not the best time to find out. Play it safe by whipping up this DIY hair mask with at-home ingredients for healthy hair that shines!
