Give Yourself Toxin-Free Self-Love This Valentine's Day
As we approach a day for couples everywhere to express their undying and sometimes over-the-top love for each other, it’s important to remember that Valentine’s Day doesn’t exist just for those couples. Valentine’s Day can be a perfect day to rally up your favorite gal pals and joke about past relationships or even set up a much needed self-care night for yourself. Who’s to say you can’t buy yourself candy, flowers and a cute but overpriced card from Target? Whether you’re in the healthiest relationship or find yourself feeling lonely this February 14th, turn to self care because in the end, the strongest form of love is the unconditional love you have for yourself. Love Peace Organic’s founder, Anastasia encourages the use of self-love affirmations and investing in making yourself feel beautiful — through clean, organic and authentic beauty products.
Looking to fall in love with the perfect shade of red lipstick this Valentine’s Day? Try out Lily Lolo’s Flirtation Vegan Lipstick to channel your inner Marilyn Monroe without the weight of harsh chemicals. This mid toned red is perfect for every skin tone, providing pigmented coloring and incredible hydration, minus the use of animal products or testing. Gluten free, fragrance free and 100% Vegan, Lily Lolo, you’re speaking my love language.
After you take off your Lily Lolo Flirtation Vegan Lipstick, you’re going to want to wind down for the night. Start with a reusable silicone facial sheet mask from Living Libations. Pair this reusable sheet mask with any of your favorite mask formulas; Shiva Rose Honey and Rose Nectar mask, Soft Focus Coconut Milk & Pearl mask, or a Frankincense Honey mask from Living Libations. While you put on your face mask, Anastasia recommends reciting some affirmations to yourself in order to acknowledge the love you hold for yourself. “I deserve the love I hold for myself” and “I am proud of the emotional growth I see in myself everyday” are two reliable affirmations to recognize self-love.
A bath can be a perfect way to let all anxieties and emotions flow away, especially on Valentine’s Day. After your Saint Martin Candle and putting on your face mask, grab a CBD Infused Lavender and Vetiver Bath Soak from Daughter of the Land. With all the relaxing, restorative and anti-inflammatory properties of CBD and lavender, this bath soak is sure to calm your nerves when you’re seeking some personal tranquility.
Once your bath is comfortable, grab the Heart of Gold Body and Face Oil and your Love Peace Organic Gua Sha and sculpt the edges of your face; cheekbones and jaw. This will help cut down facial inflammation you might have collected throughout the day. It will also assist your facial muscles toward relaxing and releasing stressful energies you might be holding onto.
For a healing, hydrating, and dry scalp serum to massage into your hair, try Under Luna's Ancient Remedy + Scalp Oil.

The next morning, wash the serum out with Under Luna’s Warrior Shampoo and Luna Love Conditioner for a rejuvenated, silky appearance.
For a plant-powered mocktail, add a dropperful of Wooden Spoon Herbs’ Rose-Colored Glasses to your favorite bubbly drink to help you achieve a lifted mood and an energized outlook on self-love. A seamless blend of rose, milky oats, and holy basil, this tincture will open your heart and help you prioritize yourself and your physical needs as well as your emotional ones.
