February is all-month Paris... delicate, dreamy, and brimmed with passion. This brings with it the year's biggest date night, and the restlessness that goes along to look one's best.
Valentine's Day is right around the corner and all the preparations from picking the perfect dress and deciding on the right make-up palette to make it easy to accessorize to accentuate your overall appearance, every little detail has your attention. Yet, isn't something you miss out on?

Rejuvenate your skin with a DIY face pack
Work-stress and pollution have taken a toll on you and it's time to fill your tired skin up again. We realize that there is very little time for a visit to the salon and therefore facials and clean-ups do not seem like an choice that is feasible. But that's no reason to worry, as you will be surprised to learn how natural remedies can work wonders for your skin right out of your kitchen. Honey, orange, cucumber and rosewater are some skin-soothing ingredients that can be used as quick and effective DIY face masks, DIY face packs.
Nourish your hair to flaunt a shiny mane
While heat-styling is a convenient way to get a perfect hairdo, to avoid dull and rough tresses, you must give your mane a natural boost in nourishment.
Pamper yourself with a coconut or almond oil head massage or go for a homemade hair pack. Yoghurt, eggs, banana and honey are some hair-healthy ingredients that should be on your list. Take a cue from these all-natural DIY hair packs.
Indulge in a homemade lip scrub for soft, luscious lips
Get rid of dry, chapped lips with a homemade lip scrub, this Valentine's. Take one teaspoon each of the honey, coconut oil and brown sugar and mix them in half a tablespoon of lukewarm water. Apply this mixture softly in circular motion onto your lips. Repeat 4-5 times, and rinse water clean. Let your lips cure the night.
Cut down on makeup application for fresh looking skin
If you have been thinking to try the bare-face-look, this is the best time to go for it.
Let your skin breathe and relax, so that it is ready for the date-night-makeup. This also prevents any makeup remnants from interfering with your desired look on the D-day.
Resort to aromatherapy to relax your senses
This classic hack of skincare is as popular as it is. No matter how well you design your look, inadequate sleep is bound to show on your face. Clock-in a good night's sleep for at least seven hours and enjoy a fresh face on Valentine's day.
If you find yourself rolling in the bed, lull yourself to sleep with the healing power of essential oils. Put a drop or two of lavender oil on your pillowcase and try to relax. Sandalwood and Clary Sage are other good options.
