1) Apply an exfoliating mask
An indispensable gesture to lighten up your complexion! Pick a peeling mask enriched with fruit acids (AHA and BHA) or salicylic acid: these natural ingredients dissolve dead cells, remove impurities accumulated in the pores and smooth the surface of the skin.
How-to: Dab a good amount of product on the clean, dry skin of your face and neck. Let stand between 10 and 15 minutes before rinsing with lukewarm water.
Reminder Make sure to pick a mask that suits your skin type. Try it at least once before the big day to prevent reactions.

2) Use eye patches
There are many reasons why patches can become your best friends. Packed with quenching and decongesting ingredients, they activate blood circulation, stimulate lymphatic drainage and gently moisturize the delicate skin of the eye contour area. The perfect recipe for a bright and vivid look!
How-to: Put a pair of patches beneath your eyes and let them stand for approximately 15 minutes.
Good to know For an intensive anti-fatigue treatment, apply patches daily for seven days before the event.

3) Get the face massage roller
Jade, quartz or metal? Whatever your favourite version, the massage roller is an asset in your beauty equipment: it activates circulation, makes draining easier and eases muscular tension. Use it with a nourishing dry oil for a healthy complexion and a firm skin.
How-to: Apply a few drops of dry oil on your face and neck, then begin rolling with upwards and outwards movements. Use the wide or narrow head depending on the area.
4) Whiten your teeth
Have you ever tried whitening strips? They offer a quick and easy solution to brighten your smile.
How-to: Apply the strips on your teeth once or twice a day for a period of 7 to 14 days, depending on the result you want. You can finish the treatment the day before the event!
5) Plump up your lips
Thin and fragile, the skin of your lips gets dehydrated easily. To quench it, smooth it and fill up the small lines, treat it with a highly nourishing care, enriched with vegetal oils, vitamins and minerals.
How-to: Let a sheet mask stand for 10 to 15 minutes on your lips, or pick a formula that you can apply before bed and leave on all night long.
