Be Irresistible This Valentine's Day- Your Easy 14 Day Beauty Regime

January 31, 2014

Are your ready for that big date or night out on the town? 

Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching and there is so much to do! You’re thinking about gifts, cards, what to wear, your romantic plans but have you thought about taking in some ‘me’ time and perfecting that look which will help you feel good and look great, ready for that special day?

We’re going to help you perfect it, helping to boost your confidence and make you look irresistible against your beautiful Valentine’s Day outfit. With our top tips for preparing for your big night, you’re sure to be ready for the fast approaching Valentine’s Day.

Two weeks before Valentine’s Day:


Yes- that's right! Getting your zzz's is the best thing you can do for your looks, your mood, your energy levels, and weight loss. Getting to bed before midnight and making sure you get at least 8 hours a night can help reduce dark circles and puffiness under the eyes, help reduce the appearance of wrinkles, and helps with weight loss. It gives your body a chance to recover from the day's physical and mental stresses and will give you a wonderful overall feeling of well-being.

 Start Tanning Now!

Your skin is your greatest accessory against any outfit. If you haven’t already got a base tan, now would be the best time to get started.  Whether on the sun beds or in the sun applying one of our tan accelerators to help build it up gradually is the best way. Our Papaya & Coconut sprays work wonders in doing this.

 Eat Well

Take some time out from the junk food. Give your body a break. Eat foods rich in vitamins and minerals. It’ll lead to healthier hair, nails and skin for the big date. Drinking plenty of water and cutting back on salty foods will banish dark under-eye circles and reduce any bloating. And food such as spinach, carrots and tomatoes will help warm up your natural skin tones and support the development of a natural tan. You’ll feel so much better on the inside, too.


Exercise is known to increase happiness and confidence levels, and to get you in shape. A brisk walk for 30 minutes, a jog for 20 minutes, or even housework for 40 minutes, 3 times a week, will start burning fat, tone up your muscles, and make you fitter, happier, and healthier. Start 2 weeks before the big day to give yourself a huge confidence boost!

 Book your hair/nail/waxing appointments!


 One week before Valentine’s Day:

  Keep the tan going  

When you have a base tan you can continue to build it up. The continual use of Carrot Sun will help to keep your skin soft and subtle, especially in the cold winter weather, while helping you develop that irresistible golden colour. You’ll have a beautiful healthy glow in no time.

 Glow your way to confidence

Moisturise, help keep your skin nice and soft by moisturising often. This will help the overall condition and appearance.


Three Days before Valentine’s Day:


 It’s a good idea to wax a couple of days before the big day – making sure any redness has gone down! After this it’s also a good idea to get in another session of tanning if possible. Why? Because the wax will take off dead skin cells, starting to take away that tan you've been working on for the big day.

 Feel loved

Spend some time with those who you know love you the most before that big date! It will boost your confidence levels and remind you of what an amazing person you truly are.


Valentine’s Day:

 Compliment yourself! Put your favourite music on as you get ready and tell yourself you look good and ooze confidence!

 Be irresistible

 One way to make sure you are absolutely irresistible is to look irresistible to the touch! Our little secret that we want to share with you is to spray a very small amount of your favourite Carrot Sun spray in the palms of your hands, rub them together, and then apply on your legs, arms, and décolletage. Not only will this make your skin absolutely glow, especially in a low candlelight setting, but it will be silky smooth to the touch, and will smell irresistibly delicious!

Happy Valentine’s Day!
