The one thing I absolutely hate about summer is shaving and getting my legs ready for warmer weather. I thought laser hair removal would do it for me, but there is a method to get your legs ready for bathing suit season. Here are a few products to give you the perfect legs you’re dying to show off:
- The first step to achieving great legs is by exfoliating, which helps to prevent ingrown hairs and removes dead skin cells for more radiant looking legs. Start off by exfoliating your skin with VITA LIBERATA Super Fine Skin Polish Moisturizing Exfoliator ($28, VITALIBERATA.com).
- Next is shaving your legs for a smooth and flawless canvas with the eos Shave Cream ($3.39, Target.com). Whether you’re doing it wet or dry, the shave cream, (available in four refreshing fragrances: Lavender Jasmine, Vanilla Bliss, Pomegranate Raspberry, and Tropical Fruit) provides 24 hours of deep moisture, which is perfect since it’s recommended not to moisturize 12 hours prior to putting on self-tanner…
- Now get your glow on with the VITA LIBERATA pHenomenal 2-3 Week Tan Mousse ($54, Sephora.com). The easy-to-apply mousse is formulated with the pHenO2 technology which allows for a longer lasting tan compared to regular self-tanners. It also includes natural and non-toxic ingredients with no triclosan or GMOs. Use a Tanning Mitt to ensure an even tan.
- While moisturizing post-tan is usually unnecessary, your legs may need a bit of hydration after having been confined in pants and jeans during the cold winter months. Apply lotion such as the eos Extra Dry Body Lotion in Vanilla Orchid ($6.49, Target.com), which not only gives you that boost of moisture for 24 hours but smells amazing!
