Unless you’ve lived under a rock, Valentine’s Day REALLY splits opinion. There are those of us who absolutely love it and love the opportunity to spoil ourselves (self-love we HEAR you, especially right now!), our loved ones and simply perform acts of kindness. However, there are many of us who think that its simply an absurdly over-commercialised excuse for companies to make money and we won’t fall for it – thanks very much. Like it or not, Valentine’s Day 2021 is coming around really fast and despite the fact that its very unlikely to include candlelit dinner reservations, people are likely to still indulge and spend some big bucks on making someone else smile – because quite frankly there isn’t a lot else to do right now.
What if we were to tell you that both approaches are totally understandable? We’re not here to judge anyone’s approach but here at Young LDN we always like to present our readers with the best the beauty industry has to offer. Whilst we may only be able to celebrate #lovelockdown from the safety of our own homes it shouldn’t mean that we have to forgo this opportunity to spoil ourselves or the ones closest to us in the name of a romantic holiday. You never know, a package arriving unexpectedly on someone’s doorstep could be the one positive in their day. Makes sense doesn’t it?
That’s why we’ve rounded up our pick of the skincare, beauty and wellness bunch suitable for absolutely anyone (regardless of gender) from across Young LDN and brought them to you with a nice metaphorical bow. We hope you love them as much as we do…
We know how much people are struggling with their skin during these downright CRAZY times and our expert Tribe are here to guide you through your journey every step of the way. If you’re not sure what you’re after or what treatment that special someone might need, we’re now offering online skin consultations. Whether you’re struggling with the dreaded Mascne, having hormonal breakouts from stress (we’re with you), or just wanting some advice on your everyday routine, our Tribe of Senior Aestheticians are here to help with any skin concern. Simply book a time via our website and we’ll text you a zoom link 1 hour before your appointment to help you get the tailored expert advice you need.
Love the sound of this but really would prefer to ‘gift’ in the traditional sense, never fear we have a range of gift card options including our highly popular Digital Gift Card. Give the gift of glowing skin, on fleek nails or great products through the power of email. Perfect for the tech savvy.
A GOLDEN FORDS HAND POURED CANDLE FOR YOUR AT HOME DINNER & ROMANTIC BUBBLE BATH FOR TWO
Why not gift your loved one an incredible hand poured wood wick candle from Golden Fords. Not only do they smell absolutely incredible, they burn (in our most humble opinion) far longer than many other candles out on the market. Made from Soy and Coconut wax they are environmentally friendly and never disappoint. Once dinner is done, take your candle with you to a nice relaxing bubble bath for two.
THE GIFT THAT KEEPS ON GIVING
If you’ve seen our other blog posts on the massive benefits of LED light therapy on the skin, you’re already in the know but just in case others need a recap – it’s good. Really good! The Deesee Pro Express LED Mask is an awesome lower cost version of the Deesee Pro LED Mask incorporating only anti-aging express mode which features RED & Near Infrared light waves. This combination helps to stimulate collagen and elastin production, micro circulation, and also helps with the healing response within the skin to improve skin tone, texture and fight the signs of ageing. It’s FDA approved and clinically proven to deliver a low-level light therapy dose to stimulate the natural cellular response in the skin (read: improve cell turnover) and is ideal for giving the skin some much needed TLC from the comfort of your own home. It’s portable and USB charged, so yes you can use it in bed watching Bridgerton and if we (ever) get to travel again you can take it away with you too!
IF YOU NEED A HELPING HAND
Dr. Nigma Talib supplements promise to help you achieve ‘Beauty In A Bottle’ so much so that’s what they’ve named their hero product. The Beauty In A Bottle food supplement contains 20 powerful ingredients to boost hair, skin and nails and quite frankly is an essential for everyone’s cupboard. This is absolutely perfect for gifting the one person who seems to have everything. This supplement offers a fast, zero-effort way to boost the general health of your skin, hair, and nails: helping to speed up iron metabolism and collagen formulation for improved skin elasticity. The best bit? They’re suitable for vegetarians and gluten and sugar free!
Fancy a little bit more targeted supplementary magic? The Dr. Nigma Talib Immortal Skin Collagen Powder is a vitamin enriched supplement filled with 23 powerful, individual ingredients all picked to slow the signs of ageing. Packed with Marine Collagen and Probiotics, Nigma Talib ND. has an extensive 15 years’ worth of experience working on some of the world’s most famous faces including: Rosie Huntington Whiteley and Stella McCartney.
She goes by the mantra ‘internal wellness shows up on your face’ and concerningly after nearly a year of various lockdowns in different forms, we sadly have to agree with her!
FOR THE PERSON WHO (REALLY DOES) HAVE EVERYTHING
We all have one of them, someone who knows all the latest beauty trends and is constantly ahead of the curve. Can’t think of one? Most likely you’re that person and if you are then you NEED one of these. The VITACLEAN Handheld Shower Head With Vitamin C Shot can help you begin your beauty routine from the minute you turn on the tap.
Achieve softer skin and hair with a unique chlorine neutralisation filtration system that softens your current water source and filters out nasties – crucial now that we are spending more and more time at home. If that wasn’t enough, the shower head itself contains a compartment that injects a shot of Vitamin C into your shower water enveloping you in a delicious citrus aromatherapy experience every time you shower! Not only will you benefit from healthier skin and hair in no time, but you’ll also receive a welcome boost to your mood and immune system! It even works with the environment to increase water pressure by x1.5 greater than most other handheld brands leading to an average reduction in water consumption of 25%. It’s a win, win!
As always, we want to thank each and every one of you for your unwavering support for Young LDN during this difficult time. We are so glad that you’re able to continue your results from home and we can’t wait to welcome you back to the studio in person as soon as possible.
Until then, keep safe!
