Whether you’re celebrating it with a loved one, or just feel like pampering yourself, it’s always nice to look good. Click here for skin care tips to looking beautiful on this special day.

Get Smooth Lips

Exfoliate this kissers! Apply a bit of lip balm or Vasoline to a separate toothbrush and brush your lips. It’ll remove the dead skin from you lips.

Get Sexy-looking Lips

Use a lip plumper and add some colour. Try a tinted balm or try a sexy colour that will make them stand out.

Get Smooth Skin

For nice smooth skin, you will want to moisturize, so apply a creamy balm containing petrolatum, shea butter, hyaluronic acid, dimethicone, or ceramides. Avoid waxy formulas because their ingredient may not penetrate, as well as anything heavily flavored or fragranced, which can make the chapping even worse.

Get on the fragrance

You want to smell great and an easy way to do it is by picking your favorite fragrance and apply it to your pulse points, which give off heat and release the scent: your wrists, inner elbows, temples, neck hollow, behind the ears, and behind the knees. Apply no more than two drops of perfume, three sprays of eau de parfum, and four hits of eau de toilette. And since, over time, you become desensitized to the smell of a fragrance, resist the urge to pile it on, and stick to the amount you used when you first wore the fragrance.

Get smooth skin

You want that touch to be smooth for your partner, so to get the smoothest shave every, you will want to choose a razor with at least five blades. Once you’re in the shower or bath, wait three minutes for warm water to soften hair. Instead of soap (it clogs your razor), use a shaving cream or gel (it creates a smooth barrier between your skin and the blades). In a pinch, hair conditioner or a creamy body wash can work.
For legs: Start above the ankle and work upward in six-inch sections. Rinse the razor between each stroke. To get your knees and ankles, pull the skin taut with one hand and glide the razor with the other.
For underarms: Shave at different angles, since the hair grows every which way. Move the blade upward, then down, then across, rinsing it clean and re-lathering between strokes.
For the bikini line: Avoid irritation by angling the blade in the direction of hair growth and gently shaving with the grain.

Get a Great Wax

For those areas where shaving isn’t always the best, then there is nothing romantic about getting a bikini wax. When booking though, make sure your hair has to be long enough—about a quarter-inch—for wax to work. Book your appointment accordingly, about every two to four weeks.
Prep your skin: For the closest wax, exfoliate with a body wash containing salicylic acid before your appointment, but don’t apply any lotion.

Get that sexy look

Don’t Forget Your Cleavage! A stunning face has a lesser effect if the skin on your chest, or rather your cleavage, is riddled with acne and brown spots. If you’re looking to wear a low neck top and show off all of your beauty, then make sure your using your favorite anti-aging cream here and use it just twice a week. Also, on the special night, sweep an illuminating body powder, and make yourself even sexier.
