Valentine's Day can be about the love between two people, but it’s definitely about loving yourself
too. Whether you spend the day alone, with friends, or a loved one, take the opportunity to look your best and be confident in yourself. Follow these easy steps to be the best you on Valentine's Day
Positive Power Statements
In the lead up to V-Day prepare your mind by talking to yourself with love and confidence. It's too easy to talk to ourselves with negativity. Instead, practise a few affirming mantras that build your self-belief and repeat them to yourself on a daily basis or a few times a day. "I am beautiful. I am worthy of love. I can do anything I put my mind to." You know what you need to hear, so make sure you hear it every day. Try it, I dare you, and step into Valentine's Day with renewed self-confidence.
The Perfect Glowing Skin
Flawless skin is, for me, one of the most attractive attributes in a person's aesthetics. Maybe it goes hand-in-hand with the confidence they gain from having a smooth complexion?
What is flawless skin? Your skin is flawless if you have an even skin tone with no blemishes. Next time you use a filter for a selfie on Snapchat or Instagram, notice how it seems to smooth your skin to make your face glow with radiance.
But how can we get this flawless 'selfie look' in real life? The best way to achieve healthy, flawless skin is through a combination of chemical peels and a good skin care regime. Chemical peels are tailored to treat your particular skin type and to address any concerns you have, such as acne, rosacea, skin pigmentation or signs of aging. A chemical peel is a perfect way to get beautiful skin for Valentine's Day and beyond by promoting the growth and renewal of healthy skin cells.
But skin peels are only half of the solution. The good work of the peel needs to be complemented with high quality skincare products that are targeted to your particular type of skin and skin concerns. The effects of a chemical peel just keep on giving when accompanied by a good skincare routine, and improvements will continue for weeks.

The 'Wow' Outfit
Why not look fab for your day at work? you look and feel fabulous. It could be for a hot date with the guy you've been crushing on, or a romantic evening rekindling the flame with your husband or partner. But whether or not you have plans on Valentine's Day evening, it's time to celebrate self love. Why not look fab for your day at work?
The perfect outfit is one that complements your figure and skin tone and makes you feel and look amazing. In the right outfit, you'll feel as though the world is at your fingertips and walk with your head held high. When it's time to make that big presentation or seal that important deal, nothing makes you feel more confident than knowing you look the part. As Coco Chanel famously said, "Dress shabbily and they remember the dress; dress impeccably and they remember the woman."
Freshen Up Your Look
A new haircut or freshening up your colour could be all that it takes to make you feel like a million dollars! Why not freshen up your brows and lashes with a shape and tint? I recommend allowing a few days for the colour to settle ready for the big day itself on February 14th.
One of the best secret life hacks to self confidence is to wear sexy underwear!
Be sure to don your sexiest lingerie under your perfect outfit. A matching set beneath your clothes will give you unexpected self-assurance, even if no one else will see them. Choosing to wear alluring lingerie gives a subconscious confidence and sexiness that makes you glow. Just make sure your lacy panties are comfortable and well fitted, as there is nothing worse than undies that creep or are too tight. Uncomfortable lingerie will ruin the effect you're going for, so make sure you have good support that will enhance the fit of your new outfit.
And if you are planning to show anyone else your lingerie this Valentine's Day, there's nothing sexier than a woman who feels confident in her own body. Go get 'em, Tiger!
Take The Compliment
So your skin is glowing, your outfit is to die for, and your hair is perfect. There's no doubt you'll get compliments.
When compliments come your way, take them! We have such a bad habit of brushing off a compliment or saying something to the contrary, but don't do yourself down. You deserve it.
Accepting a compliment can feel strange if you're not used it, but simply acknowledging it with gratitude and thanking the person will grow your new-found confidence. After all, if they're repeating your own mantras back to you, then you can see that the power statements are working.
Remember to store the memory of every compliment, ready to replay it if you are ever feeling low. The happier you feel, the more your natural beauty will shine.
