Although we always think that makeup is the most important part, the essential thing is to feel comfortable with your look and show your seduction skills.
Do you have a date this weekend? Do you want to look attractive, natural, and really healthy? Don’t worry, from our space we offer you simple tips to make you look radiant.
Beauty tips before your date
Having a date might make you feel nervous, but we’ve prepared the best tricks so you can feel relaxed and beautiful. The thing is that if you keep your beauty natural you have more chances of a successful date — it’s proved.
Good prep skin, hair & nails, natural makeup, and a confident attitude is the right way to have a good time with your date.
A well-hydrated skin
Remember that the important thing is to prepare a couple of days properly before the date. And having a well-hydrated, soft, and smooth skin will offer us a much more radiant appearance.
Our makeup will also look better if the skin is well treated — that way, we won’t need to cover up too many imperfections, and we will have a more natural and attractive look.
And how do we do that? It’s very simple. We will prepare ourselves two days in advance, carrying out a treatment twice a day, in the morning and at night.
To do this, we’ll need 4 tablespoons of pumpkin pulp (which we will have previously boiled).
We put it in a bowl together with a spoonful of honey, a spoonful of olive oil, half a spoonful of milk, and a spoonful of the aloe vera pulp.
Get a very homogeneous mixture and apply it to your face for 20 minutes. After that time, remove it and rinse it with fresh water.
Repeat twice a day, and you will see how beautiful and hydrated your skin is.
You may ask yourself why these ingredients? Pumpkin is a vegetable rich in beta-carotene, which is a powerful natural antioxidant. In turn, they are precursors of vitamin A, which is a fat-soluble vitamin.
Vitamin A plays a critical role in the active hydration of the skin, according to our team blog.
Olive oil has shown to have significant antioxidant properties, as well as other specific properties on the skin.
Shiny, soft and silky hair
The ideal is to be able to look attractive and natural.
Therefore, we need our hair to be loose and shiny, soft, and with adequate volume. To do this once a day and two days before your appointment, it would be advisable to apply this mask.
We will need an avocado, two drops of almond oil, and two drops of coconut oil. These two oils can be found easily.
In a bowl, we put the avocado pulp and mix it with a spoon. Coconut oil and almond oil are excellent for treating and restoring your hair. Apply it when you have it wet and let it act for 20 minutes and then rinse with warm water. You’ll see how beautiful it looks.
Avocado’s composition has potential health effects, and it has been shown to have antioxidant and protective properties against DNA damage and ultraviolet radiation.
Almond oil, as stated in the study The uses and properties of almond oil, has moisturizing, emollient, soothing and regenerating properties.
At the same time, according to multiple scientific investigations, coconut oil has proven to have active properties to protect hair.
A brilliant look, with healthy and shiny eyelashes, is one more detail that can frame your face with that natural beauty we want to show.
For this, a simple and easy remedy to do two days before is one of Vaseline and castor oil.
In the evenings, give yourself a little massage with a little bit of Vaseline and a drop of castor oil. Leave it on all night, and you will see how your eyelashes shine in the morning.
Fleshy, soft lips
Few things are as attractive on a woman as her lips.
But sometimes we get them dry and chapped, with those loose skins that get so muddy when we want to paint them. What can we do? Once again, let’s use the Vaseline.
We apply it to the lips, and then put some sugar on them.
What we’ll do is a little exfoliation. We heat up some water, and with a little cotton, we massage the lips so that, little by little, those dead skins are removed.
Then we apply Vaseline again and leave it on all night.
This way, you will get soft and attractive lips.
A handy trick that we can prepare two days in advance is to add two drops of lemon, a spoonful of olive oil, a chopped piece of garlic, and a capsule of vitamin B sold in pharmacies to our transparent glaze.
Apply it, and you will get healthy and strong nails. On the day of the date, choose a discreet but elegant shade, such as nude or pastel colors. They are very attractive.
This remedy, as such, is not scientifically proven. However, there are some properties of these compounds that are and that can help improve the condition of our nails or protect them. Garlic has been shown to have antimicrobial properties.
Likewise, lemon is a citrus fruit with antibacterial and antioxidant properties. Vitamin B has also been classically used for the treatment of brittle nails, and its use is demonstrated in some scientific articles.
Get a good night’s rest
Try to go to bed early. If we rest well, we will get up looking more relaxed and without the classic dark circles. Put, for example, some lavender under your pillow, the smell will help you get a peaceful and relaxed sleep.
The aroma of lavender essential oil has been shown to have positive benefits in the treatment of insomnia due to its relaxing properties.
Remember that less is more
True beauty is achieved without artifice. With this, we want to tell you that it is better not to abuse cosmetics and makeup. We leave aside the sophisticated to exploit our naturalness.
That which gives off your loose hair, a simple but attractive dress, a balanced makeup that enhances your eyes or your mouth (not both equally). The essential thing is to feel comfortable with your image and then bring out your seduction skills.
A relaxing bath before your date
There’s nothing more suitable.
We should arrive calm and relaxed, and one way to achieve this is through a hot bath where your nerves are relieved, where your muscles lose their tension, where placidity relaxes your face, and the steam opens your pores, eliminating toxins.
It is worth spending at least half an hour in a bath with natural salts and a pleasant smell.
Enjoy your date, and remember, be natural and always be yourself.
