This Valentine’s Day why don’t you give your LOVED one Skincare instead of Chocolate’s and Roses ?

When we think of Valentine’s day the first thing that comes to mind for most of us are chocolates and roses. However, the reality of having fresh flowers is that they start to look weathered and sad after a week, losing their scent and appearance. Our skincare range will not only last longer but is actually good for your skin (unlike chocolate!).

Do you know where Valentine’s day actually came from? How it became so popular? Was it always about love and good feelings? From its bloody origins to its sweet, chocolaty modern day traditions, these are some interesting facts you didn’t know about Valentine’s Day.

-The most popular theory about Valentine's Day's origin is that Emperor Claudius II didn't want Roman men to marry during wartime. Bishop Valentine went against his wishes and performed secret weddings. For this, Valentine was jailed and executed. While in jail he wrote a note to the jailor's daughter signing it "from your Valentine".It was only after his death that he was made a saint.

-In the Middle Ages, young men and women drew names from a bowl to see who would be their Valentine. They would wear this name pinned onto their sleeves for one week for everyone to see. This was the origin of the expression "to wear your heart on your sleeve."

-Physicians of the 1800s commonly advised their patients to eat chocolate to calm their pining for lost love.

-15 percent of U.S. women send themselves flowers on Valentine's Day.

-The red rose was the favourite flower of Venus, the Roman goddess of love.

-Based on retail statistics, about 3 per cent of pet owners will give gifts to their pets on this day.

-Teachers will receive the most Valentine's Day cards, followed by children, mothers, wives, sweethearts and pets.

-There are enough candy hearts made each year to stretch from Valentine, Arizona to Rome, Italy, and back again. The number of these candy hearts produced is approximately 8 billion.

-It has some pretty dark roots…… Historians believe Valentine's Day actually began in Ancient Rome as a pagan fertility festival called Lupercalia, which included sacrificing animals and whipping women with animal skins until they bled, signifying their fertility. So romantic……

-In the 1300s, it officially became a holiday associated with love and romance.

-The holiday was Christianised — no more animal sacrifices! — and was celebrated in mid-February because many believed that birds started their mating season on February 14, which is why doves are often associated with love.
