Below, check out her top tips and tricks for feeling your best, confident self this Valentine's Day!
With Valentine’s Day less than two weeks away, feeling good (especially when it comes to intimacy) is top-of-mind. And when it comes to intimacy, confidence has many variables–from how we feel about ourselves, to how strong our relationship is, to how comfortable we are in our own skin. Luckily, there are simple, fool-proof things we can do to help ourselves feel more self-assured and assertive:
Before you strip down, dress up in something that you love and feel good about wearing. Whether it's your favorite pair of skinny jeans, or a curve-hugging dress with some flirty lingerie underneath, choose an outfit that puts you in the mood to feel seductive. This is about you feeling good for you – not just looking sexy for a partner.
Pick the Right Light
Skip the fluorescent lights and set the mood with something more flattering, such as light fixtures that illuminate upward or lower-wattage bulbs. Dimmers, light bulbs with a blush tint, lamps and candles are great choices, too! It’s a great way to set the stage for arousal.
Feel Fresh (Down There)
When things in the bedroom start heating up, your feminine hygiene is the last thing you want to be worrying about. To stay comfortable, clean and confident, try using a gentle cleanser, such as Lavilin Intimate Wash – designed to naturally soothe and protect skin, prevent unpleasant odor, and relieve redness and irritation of delicate areas.
Turning up the heat in the bedroom can be as simple as lacing up your sneakers. Increased blood flow, stamina and testosterone, as well as a big boost in the look-good, feel-good department, are all reasons why a sweat session before your next romantic evening could pay off between the sheets.
Attractive feet appeal to everyone. After a great pedicure, many women can just look at their feet and feel more relaxed and sexy. You can continue those good vibes in between pedicures by using Lavilin Foot Repair Emulsion. It actively works to remove hard, dry skin and support cell regeneration.
Pick a New Scent
The area of the brain that processes scent also rules memory and emotion. Picking a hot, new scent for a special night is not only a great way to spice things up, but to also re-excite your partner each time they smell it.
Skin So Soft
Sensuality is all about the senses. When it comes to how good you feel about getting touched, taking care of your skin is a sure way to make that happen. Your legs have the largest surface area of skin on your body so it pays to give them some attention. Lavilin Leg Softening Cream’s powerful infusion of moisture elasticizes skin structure and nourishes from the hips down, leaving you feeling cooled and renewed.
