5 Valentine’s Day Skincare Essentials to Gift Yourself

This is the year I take better care of my skin. It all started with a facial and reading the book Skincare by Caroline Hirons. Mind. Blown. I am determined to have the best skin possible this year. Valentine’s Day will be here before we know it, and if you’re like me, you are already starting to plan the perfect Valentine’s Day outfit, home decor, and gift ideas for your significant other. Your skincare routine is just as important as what you wear. With everything on your mind around the holiday, don’t let your beauty routine be something your stress over. Instead, make it a way to treat yourself to an at-home spa experience. Keep reading for the  5 Valentine’s Day skincare essentials to gift yourself.

Natural Bath Soaps 

Over fifty percent of women report having sensitive skin. Therefore, it is important to opt for natural bath soaps that will not irritate the largest organs of our bodies. I love the Rustic Elements Natural Bar Soap Gift Set. It comes with a naturally USA Grown loofah sponge, exfoliating sugar scrub, reclaimed wooden soap dish, and handmade soaps. I suffer from eczema (ie very sensitive skin) and I can tell you first hand my skin loves everything in this gift set.


Who knew exfoliation was so important for cleaner and younger-looking skin? It is now a part of my daily skincare routine. I use the exfoliating sugar scrub in the shower on my body and the Skin Ceauticals Glycolic Renewal Cleanser on my face morning and night. My esthetician recommended I use a glycolic cleanser to help exfoliate my face and promote cellular turnover. I have only been using it a week and already a see a difference in the amount of breakouts my skin is having.

Hyaluronic Acid

I wish someone would have told me about this magical potion sooner because it is now a daily staple in my skincare routine. I love the YEOUTH Pure Hyaluronic Acid because it is 1. pure without extra unnecessary ingredients and 2. completely affordable at only $17 on Amazon! It does not matter where I am or how my skin is feeling that day, this hyaluronic serum always makes it feel less sensitive and more hydrated.


Many women include perfumes and fragrances in their daily beauty rituals. Whether you prefer Chanel No. 5, Armaf Passion, Dior Sauvage, or Ariana Grande Sweet Like Candy, the trick is to apply your perfume to pulse points like the inside of your wrists, inner elbows, below the belly button, behind your ears, and the back of your knees.  Apply perfume on damp skin directly when you get out of the shower.

Lip Care Products

A huge focus on Valentine’s Day is a romantic kiss and a picture-perfect pout is essential to your Valentine’s beauty look. Maybe you are not into splurging on lip fillers. Hey, it is not for everyone.  There are other ways to plump up your pout at home. Every morning and every night, without fail, I apply my Algenist GENIUS Collagen Nourishing Lip Balm. This vegan formula helps nourish and condition for soft and supple lips. Every so often I use a lip exfoliate like the Chapstick Lip Scrub. Exfoliating lips helps my lipsticks to apply more evenly and last longer.  If you prefer a more natural look over the bold red or pink lip, a simple tint like the Honest Beauty Tinted Lip Balm is perfect!

Hydrating Spray

Whether you do a full face of makeup for your Valentine’s plans or keep things simple, there is a good chance of close contact – which makes hydrated skin essential for that glow. Even if you already have makeup on, a simple mist of hydrating spray like the Hyaluronic Ceramide Mist Hydrating Spray can give you a bit of added moisture.

There you have it, ladies and gents, 5 Valentine’s Day skincare essentials to gift yourself. You could also order a few of these products and give them to your friends as gifts. Just a thought.

As always, thank you for stopping by! I hope you have the most amazing day and cheers to 2023, the year of fabulous skin!
