If you scan your calendars, it would occur to you that despite having many holidays listed for us to celebrate or commemorate, we only dress up majorly for a handful of occasions: Christmas and New Year, with the optional birthdays and Halloween on the side. But now, we can definitely add Valentine's Day to the list regardless of relationship status. Unlike in the previous years where V-Day was often dedicated to couples, these days, family, friend or self dates are now on the 'hip list', making it more exciting and much anticipated by anyone of any age. So no matter how you're celebrating Valentine's Day, we devised a prep plan for you to follow to ensure you feel and look good on the special day.
Step one: start with some self-loving with skin and body prep

"Love yourself before you love others," says the old adage and we couldn't agree more. That's why we're putting those words to life by starting your Valentine's Day prep with a simple yet soothing skin and body pampering. Not only will it leave you feeling good for the rest of the day but it will also reignite your confidence that will carry your entire look.
Start off with SABON's Roses Speak For The Heart Gift Set that contains a shower oil, a body oil and a body scrub, all in a sensuous limited edition rose-splash scent that will leave your skin renewed and soft like a petal at the comfort of your own home. Next, take care of tired and puffy-looking skin by swiping on the multi-purpose SIGI Skin Pink Nectar, which helps firm and moisturise your under eyes and can also be used to prep your lips for a soft and kissable pout. Last but not the least, don't forget to prepare for a lot of hand-holding, care-filled touching and hugging by also giving your hands some loving with the L’OCCITANE X Rifle Paper Co. Hand Cream Trio collaboration.
