Yes, it is indeed already February! Better known as the month of LOVE. And the 14th is usually spent buying flowers, chocolates, underwear and romantic candle-lit dinners.
Don’t get me wrong, we all adore the classics but if you’re looking for a little originality this year, here are a few helpful tips and suggestions for your Valentine that WE LOVE:
#1 Book a Valentine massage lesson
The sense of touch is said to relieve symptoms of stress and depression while releasing happy hormones and can even boost your immune system! But if you feel a bit clumsy, you can always book a treatment for you and your partner and have a therapist show you a few easy techniques. It’s a great bonding experience. And if it seems like too much work- a couple’s massage can work just as well.
*Book now at Tiffany’s… it’s a girl thing.
#2 DIY Valentine face masks
If you’re planning on staying in and watching your favourite mushy movie “Valentine’s Day” – AGAIN – then mix things up with an in-house face mask.
Here’s a DIY Valentine face mask recipe to fall in love with:
- Add 1 ts Turmeric,
- 1 ts honey and
- mix with plain yoghurt into a paste.
- Apply with a small flat brush and rinse after 15-20 minutes.
Turmeric is a great anti-oxidant/ anti-inflammatory/ anti-bacterial agent while honey will help soothe and moisturize; with the added benefit of lactic acid in the yoghurt to gently help exfoliate the skin.
#3 WE LOVE for the gals… an expert Make-up workshop
Splurge out and surprise her with a “Leading Lady Make-up Workshop”. Guys, take it from me, the ladies love make-up. Great tips on make-up application is always a hit and this 2-hour workshop has everything she needs! It includes a MUD brush kit, Lipstick and eye shadow palette.
*Book her now at BH Make-up Studio or call 081 793 7467.
#4 WE LOVE for the guys… a top notch Hair Treatment
Always stuck when it comes to the guys? No more socks or boxers this year! Spoil your man with a hair treatment and cut.
While men very rarely use extra products besides shampoo, a relaxing scalp treatment is great to:
- liven up hair
- add moisture while
- stimulating the scalp and hair follicles.
Book a top notch treatment and then round off the look with a great cut and style.
*We recommend booking your guy at Maison Costa Preller Square as they offer a private treatment room with reclining chairs away from the salon noise.
So. no more excuses on being boring this Valentines Day! Show that special someone how much they mean to you and surprise them with something a little less ordinary.
We come to love not by finding a perfect person, but by learning to see an imperfect person perfectly – UP, Pixar Walt Disney.
