Whether you’re on a hot date, attending a big event or having a fun night out with friends, you’ll want to look fantastic. Whatever the occasion, following the steps in our special night out skincare routine will ensure you look your radiant best.
The real key is in preparation, and you should try to start getting your skin ready for the big day well in advance. Most people won’t have hours available to get ready for a big night out or date night, so being consistent with your routine and prepping skin with masks in the days before will increase the odds of you waking up with good skin on the day. We’ll take you through our tips for the week running up to the event, and recommend some of the products that will help you look absolutely stunning for your night on the tiles!
The Week Before
One of the most important things to practice if you want to achieve healthy looking skin is a consistent skincare routine. The better the condition your skin is in, the less make-up you will need and the better your makeup will look. Always remove your makeup and cleanse your skin of any impurities everynight before you go to bed. Use a serum that addresses your specific skin issues and follow up with a nourishing moisturiser. This will help to hydrate and replenish your skin while you sleep.
Our luxury anti-ageing moisturiser TRUFFLE NOIR works around the clock to improve the condition of your skin. It provides instant rejuvenation while repairing and renewing your skin as you sleep.
You will have heard it before, but getting a good night’s sleep helps your skin to look refreshed and bright, as your skin naturally repairs itself overnight. If you struggle with a peaceful night’s sleep, try applying REPOSE aromatherapy night cream before you go to bed, as it works to calm and aid relaxation. It’s infused with hops, which encourage restful sleep and help prevent premature ageing by promoting firmer skin.
If you suffer from dark circles, puffiness or crow’s feet, find a good eye cream and use it consistently in the run up to a big night out. Our luxury eye cream EYE TRUFFLE helps to reduce frown lines and crow’s feet, treats dark circles and puffiness and reduces the signs of fatigue.
Prep Your Body
You may have been sticking to a consistent workout routine and are feeling toned and ready to face the world. For those who are feeling less confident, choose what you are going to wear and then focus on any parts of your body that will be exposed. Dry body brushing is a great way to transform skin and see visible improvments in skin condition a week before your big night.
Bronzed skin can also hide a multitude of sins! Applying bronzer won’t just give you a fabulous glow, but will help to even out skin tone. If you are looking for a radiant sun-kissed glow, choose an instant bronzing gel-cream which nourishes, moisturises and brightens skin. Alternatively, go for a body moisturiser with brightening and illuminating properties.
LOVELY DAY is an instant bronzing gel that washes off easily when you’re done with it. BODY TRUFFLE luxury body moisturiser uses the special light illuminating effects of rose quartz to give your skin an instant glow. It evens out your skin tone, softens flaws and imperfections and illuminates skin to leave a radiant, lustrous finish.
The Day Before
Chose a mask that is ging to plump and add radiance to your skin. Avoid a deep cleansing or clay mask the night before as this will draw out impurities and could reveal a few spots lurking beneath the skin.
To prepare your skin for a mask, start by cleansing your skin as this will provide a clean base. Follow with a gentle exfoliation to remove any dead, flaky skin cells that leave skin looking dull. Exfoliating will not only brighten and smooth skin, but allows your mask to penetrate deeper into the skin, helping you to reap the full benefits. If you have particularly dry skin, opt for a hydrating mask that can be left on overnight; you’ll wake up refreshed with nourished, hydrated and smooth skin.
If your skin is looking dull and in need of a pick-me-up, then choose a radiance mask that can also plump up skin and leave it looking bright and youthful. TRUFFLESQUE is a powerful anti-ageing radiance mask that works to leave skin plumper, lifted, super hydrated and silky smooth. It combines diamond powder and gold photo-reflective particles that convert UV light to blue light, which injects luminosity and radiance into your skin.
On the Day
There are still a few tweaks you can make to your routine to ensure that your skin looks its best. Start your day with your usual cleanse, tone, eye cream and moisturise routine. If your eyes are in need of a refreshing treat, keep your eye cream in the fridge the night before to help to maximise its effects. If your skin feels dry, add some face oil to your moisturiser to replenish your skin and leave it moisturised, smooth and dewy.
Starting your night out routine with a few steps to create a smooth base will reduce the need for layers of face make-up and will help you to look radiant and youthful. For particularly special occasions, we recommend a glycolic face peel to remove dead skin and debris from the surface of your face to give it a lovely smooth surface.
We love starting our regime with THE BIG REVEAL glycolic peel as it acts as an instant facial, making dull skin bright, radiant and smooth in just one minute.
Follow this up with toner and a face mask, then apply serum and moisturiser. Then you can get on with your make-up routine, focusing on accentuating your best features, whether it is with a smokey eye or a bold lip.
Some nights are worth a little extra effort so that you feel your radiant, confident best. Great-looking make-up starts with great skin. Ensure that you have prepped your skin in the days and weeks before, so that your skin looks it best. This will help you to save time when applying your make-up. You might even find some new go-to products or luxurious skincare treats that you want to incorporate into your usual skincare regime, as glowing skin shouldn’t just be reserved for special occasions!
