Leg Prep For The Weekend
Let’s be honest ladies, getting your legs out, is in many cases, a chore, and frankly a bit.. intimidating?! There has been many a time, where we have taken the easy route and opted for jeans or tights, rather than daring to bare. Apart from the actual chore of leg prep, many women don’t follow all of the necessary leg prep steps that really make your legs look weekend ready! There are a number of steps that when done, will make your legs look and feel amazing. We can assure you that following these quick steps will make having your legs out feel like a triumph, rather than a chore! An obvious step in leg prep. It doesn’t matter how you get rid of your hair.. Wax, shave, it’s completely up to you. Just, do it! Exfoliation is KEY for having perfect pins! Exfoliation not only rids of dead skin cells and dry skin, but it makes your skin the perfect base for tan. We seriously can’t get enough of The Body Shop’s best seller coconut body scrub! Not everyone needs to or wants to wear tan, but for many women, this step is necessary. There are many amazing tans on the market, depending on whether you want to wear a gradual tan or an instant, it is still important to exfoliate! While there are a load of gradual tans to choose from, namely St. Tropez, Cocoa Brown tan, the list could go on, our favourite instant tan has to be the good reliable Sally Hansen, which is essentially makeup for your legs and literally makes your legs looks flawless! This is so important! Keep your legs hydrated with a good quality moisturiser. Good moisturising makes all the difference to your legs’ skin texture and tone. One of our all time favourite moisturisers is Palmers Cocoa Butter. It’s so budget friendly, yet so luxurious on the skin and perfect for tackling extremely dry skin. Tom Ford do an amazing body oil with a gold shimmer in it. Trust me you do not want to miss this step! Adding shimmer to the legs makes them look longer, leaning and your skin looks more healthy and glowy. There are a few products on the market perfect for this purpose. One of our favourites is the luxurious gold body oil by Tom Ford which does wonders when it comes to making limbs look longer and leaner. It also makes your skin look more glowing and healthy. Another great product for shimmery legs is an all time favourite of ours, Benefit’s Bathina. This shimmery body balm is perfect for faking lean, shimmery legs!
