Celebrate Valentine’s Day with Self-Care—Here Are 3 DIY Skincare Recipes to Get You Started

This Valentine’s Day, whether you're celebrating with your best gal pals or side-by-side with your one-and-only—don’t forget to show yourself some love, too!

Self-love looks very different depending on who you ask. For some, it’s speaking kindly to yourself, a therapy session, or saying ‘no’ to something that doesn't align with your values. For others, it could be as simple as watching your favorite movie, popcorn in hand.

For me, it’s about taking care of my skin.

I firmly believe in a simple day-to-day routine—a swipe of hyaluronic acid serum in the AM, followed by some niacinamide and a face oil in the PM. You truly don’t need much for your skin to look its best—but special occasions call for special skincare! And if you know anything about me, you know that my version of self-love is all about feeling beautiful in the simplest way possible. So, I went ahead and rounded up three of my favorite DIY skincare recipes just for you. Perfect for a night in or before your big date! Take a look…
