Do dual face masks
Nothing says couples’ pampering like slathering on face masks and laughing at how weird and adorable you look. Masks deliver intensive nourishment to your skin, including ingredients like vitamins E and C for reducing fine lines and firming, charcoal to remove excess oil from your pores, and hyaluronic acid for deep hydration. Different masks do different tasks — some help with skin problems like dryness or acne, while others brighten, hydrate, detox, soothe, or nourish your skin. An all-purpose mud or clay mask is a hydrating, nourishing option for all skin types.
A warm foot soak with epsom salt relieves stress, promotes healing, and makes you say, “ahhhhh.” While your masks do their job, fill the tub with warm water up to your ankles, and add a half-cup of epsom salts. If you want a little aromatherapy with your soak, add around 10 drops of essential oils to a tablespoon of olive, jojoba, or coconut oil, and pour it into the running water. Adding some essential oils directly to the bath water can cause skin irritation. A prepared soak, like cooling, refreshing Little Moon Essentials Fresh Peppermint Foot Soak, takes the work — and guesswork — out of it. Sit on the side of the tub, slide your tired, achy feet into that life-giving water, and sip on your drinks ‘til they’re gone.
Drain the tub, and dry your feet. Rinse off the masks, moisturize your face, and freshen up your drinks. Retire to the relaxingest place in the house, find something awesome to watch on TV, or pull up your favorite playlist. Get comfy, because it’s time for foot massages! If you or your partner are averse to touching other people’s feet, you can each massage your own darn feet — it feels just as good.
Rub a little massage oil or olive, sunflower, or jojoba oil in your hands, and firmly — but gently — massage each foot. Read up on foot massage techniques, including warm-up twists, arch rubs, heel squeezes, and pressure point moves. When the massage is over, generously slather super-nourishing foot lotion all over those pups — don’t forget between the toes! — and immediately put on some clean, breathable socks.
Proceed to curl up together, and watch TV until you fall asleep — another exciting Valentine’s Day in the books!
