From Lackluster Limbs to Perfect Pins!

From Lackluster Limbs to Perfect Pins!





With summer now approaching (though very slowly), it’s that time of the year again where the sunny season means baring your bare legs… A frightening thought after months of being hidden away under cosy tights and thick jeans. However, follow these tips and tricks to take you from lacklustre limbs to perfect pins!
1.       Shave – wax, veet or epilate, whatever your preferred method. Whilst waxing removes hairs for longer, shaving leaves skin feeling silky smooth. If you choose to use a razor, its best to invest in a nice shaving gel such as Gilette Satin Care or Queen of… Ta-da! Shaving Gel – but never dry shave!
2.       Exfoliate – Let’s be honest, with our legs all tucked up over winter, they may have been neglected. Scrub away dead skin with a gentle body scrub such as Soap and Glory’s Sugar Crush, blended with brown sugar and lime it smells just like a mojito – perfect to get you in the mood for cocktails!
3.       Moisturise – For nourished, glowing skin make sure to regularly moisturise. The best time is straight after you get out of the shower when your body is still damp as the product can trap some of the water left on your legs leading to longer and more thorough hydration. Why not give the body shop body butters a try?
4.       Exercise – want trim, toned thighs? A quick run round the block can make a real difference. Or if you run like Phoebe from friends and would rather keep your jogging on the down-low, you could always invest in a step up box to exercise from the comfort of your own home.
5.       Tan – Whether it’s drinks with the girls or a full on night out, a little tan can take your pins from pasty to perfect. The trick is not to overdo it! Sunshimmer by Rimmel is great for a temporary tan as it slides straight on and then washes off at the end of the night, plus the product comes out dark so you can see where you’re placing it.
6.       Make up – A controversial tip, but Caroline Flack swears by it as she admitted to using M.A.C’s Face and Body Foundation on her famous, killer legs. The buildable coverage helps to provide a flawless natural finish, which works to condition the skin whilst also providing a water-resistant coverage to keep those pesky Strongbow spillages from streaking down your legs. WIN!
