Who says it's roses and chocolate for Valentine's Day? I do! But this time with a twist. Whether its getting ready for a night out or looking for the perfect Galentine's gift, these beauty finds infused with all things chocolate and roses will have you looking and feeling refreshed this Valentine's Day!
I love beauty finds that take their cues from nature. And what is better than chocolate and roses? Chocolate has natural properties that will keep your skin looking vibrant. Chocolate hosts a range of potent antioxidants to protect your skin from free radical damage and the sun's harsh rays. Plus, chocolate makes an excellent skin-detoxifier in combination with caffeine. It sloughs off the dead skin cells and allows the newly exposed, fresh skin to breathe freely.
Rose extracts are some of the best anti-inflammatory and scar reducing ingredients out there because they reduce redness and calm the skin. Plus since roses have astringent and antibacterial properties, they are especially good for people with oily and acne-prone skin like me. Rose extracts are high in vitamin C so they help to stimulate collagen and are high in vitamin E so it’s very moisturizing. Rosewater also helps maintain the skin's pH balance and can help reduce the redness of irritated skin, get rid of acne, dermatitis and eczema.
So don't think that roses are just for smelling and chocolate just for the tasting. Take these cues from nature to add to your valentine's day beauty routine! And if you need some gift ideas for the valentine in your life, these picks can make great gifts too!
