Loreal Paris BMAG Article 4 Skin Care Products To Use For The Perfect Valentines Night In D

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner—what are your plans? Why not spend the night with your BFFs this year? In addition to the obvious treats—pizza, chocolate, and wine—we’re here to suggest pampering yourself with a few key skin care products that go beyond your standard facial cleanser and face moisturizer. Whether you opt to use a charcoal mask or a face scrub, we have a feeling you’re going to have some fun this February 14th! To help you create the perfect girls’ night in this Valentine’s Day, here are six beauty products to consider using.


Looking to add an anti-aging moisturizer to your skin care routine? The L’Oréal Paris RevitaLift Cicacream Face Moisturizer Pro Retinol & Centella Asiatica is a lightweight, protective cream formulated with Pro-Retinol, a powerful wrinkle-fighting ingredient, and centella asiatica, an herb used in traditional Chinese medicine. This cica cream formula can help strengthen the skin barrier to help resist the appearance of visible fine lines and wrinkles, loss of firmness, and other signs of aging that a weakened skin barrier can accentuate.


Pop quiz time: What’s one of the most fun skin care products you can use? That’d be a face mask, of course! Take your pick from one of the following face masks.

L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Detox & Brighten Face Mask: Skin looking a little lackluster this Valentine’s Day? Formulated with charcoal, this face mask can help draw out the buildup of impurities, dirt, and pollution and reduce the look of dull skin for a complexion that seems to shine from within. Yes, please!

L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Exfoliate & Refining Face Mask: Since Valentine’s Day is smack dab in the middle of winter, your skin might be looking a tad dull these days. To help smooth the appearance of your skin, try using this face mask. Formulated with red algae extract, this mask can help draw out the buildup of impurities, dirt, and oils, exfoliate dead skin cells, smooth the look of imperfections, and allow skin to breathe.

L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Clear & Comfort Face Mask: If you’re feeling a tad stressed about planning your Valentine’s Day night in, it’s time to fill up your wine glass, grab a few pieces of chocolate, and gab with your friends over a nice, calming face mask. Formulated with seaweed, this face mask can help draw out the buildup of impurities, dirt, and oils and gently cleanse stressed areas.

L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Clarify & Smooth Face Mask: Along with dry skin, winter has a way of making skin look uneven and rough. So, this Valentine’s Day, why not give your skin the gift of smooth, clarified skin? Formulated with yuzu lemon extract, this face mask can help draw out the buildup of impurities, dirt, and pollution, shed rough, dead skin cells from the surface of skin, clarify tone, and improve skin texture.

Use any of the above face masks three times a week for best results. Apply an even layer to clean, dry skin, leave it on for 10-15 minutes, then rinse off thoroughly with lukewarm water and pat dry.

Have mature skin? We’ve got a special face mask option just for you! The L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Cell Renewal Rosy Tone Mask is formulated with AHA, imperial peony, and a mineral exfoliant to help renew skin’s youthful rosiness through a fresh, cooling experience. To use, apply the pale pink face mask to clean skin, leave it on for five minutes, then gently massage the face mask over your skin using light circular motions to help exfoliate. Rinse off thoroughly with lukewarm water and repeat twice a week for best results.


In addition to cica cream and face masks, face scrubs (particularly, sugar scrubs) are another great skin care product pick for a Valentine’s Day slumber party with your gal pals. Try one of the following four face scrubs:

L’Oréal Paris Pure-Sugar Nourish & Soften Cocoa Scrub: If you want to really stick with the chocolate theme this Valentine’s Day, try using this sugar scrub formulated with finely crushed cocoa, luxurious coconut oil, and rich cocoa butter, which helps create the appearance of smoother-looking skin.

L’Oréal Paris Pure-Sugar Purify & Unclog Kiwi Scrub: More of a fruit lover? Use this face scrub formulated with kiwi seeds to help purify the appearance of your complexion.

L’Oréal Paris Pure-Sugar Smooth & Glow Grapeseed Scrub: For skin that looks glowing, pick up this face scrub, which is formulated with finely ground acai, grapeseed, and monoi oils.

L'Oréal Paris Pure-Sugar Resurface & Energize Kona Coffee Scrub: Feeling the gloom of February impacting your skin? Wake it up with this face mask, which is formulated with real Kona coffee grounds.

To use any of the above face scrubs, smooth a small amount onto clean, dry skin. Massage over your face with wet fingers, then rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water. Use three times a week. You can also use any of the above sugar scrubs as a lip scrub! If you have a date planned for Valentine’s Day, exfoliate your lips before applying lipstick for a smoother lipstick application.

SKIN CARE PRODUCT #4: hair sheet mask

Sheet masks are one of the most fun beauty products to use on a self-pampering night in, and they’re not just for your face! We’ll admit, hair sheet masks aren’t technically a skin care product, but they’re skin care-inspired—so, it counts! To use, get the mask unwrapped and ready to go before you hop into your shower. Then, after shampooing, apply the mask onto wet hair, wrapping the hair fully into the cap and sealing it with the included sticker. Then, gently massage the mask onto your hair to coat your strands, before letting it sit for five minutes. It’s activated by the steam from your shower, so it basically does all the work for you. Once time is up, you can remove and rinse the mask off.

SKIN CARE PRODUCT #5: manuka honey balm

Valentine’s Day, unfortunately, falls during one of the coldest and driest months of the year, so you’ll want to take extra measures to keep your skin moisturized. One of the best ways to moisturize dry winter skin? By using a multi-tasking, manuka honey balm, like the L'Oréal Paris Age Perfect Hydra Nutrition Manuka Honey All Over Balm – Face/Neck/Chest/Hands. As its name suggests, you can apply this silky balm on your face, neck, chest, and hands—basically everywhere you need a little extra nourishment.


Last but not least, one of our favorite nighttime skin care products happens to be peel pads. The L’Oréal Paris RevitaLift Bright Reveal Brightening Daily Peel Pads are formulated with glycolic acid to help brighten the appearance of skin. Use a peel pad nightly on cleansed skin—and make sure to take sun protection measures in the AM, since glycolic acid can increase your skin’s sun sensitivity. Sun protection measures include applying a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher every day, limiting your amount of time in the sun (especially between 10 AM and 2 PM, which are the sun’s peak hours), seeking shade, and covering up exposed areas in long sleeves, pants, a broad-brimmed hat, and UV-blocking sunglasses.
