Sun’s out, legs out! I’m having a blast this summer, both in the city and traveling. I just returned from Las Vegas and am headed to Florida soon! Throughout, I’ll no doubt be splashing around in pools and the ocean, so I want to make sure my legs are in prime summer shape. I stumbled upon some really awesome Sally Hansen products at the CVS across the street from me! Read on for details on my favs as well as some other tips on how to keep your legs looking best while you’re out having fun in the sun!
Step 1: Exfoliate
Want to keep that summer tan looking even? Make sure to use a body scrub at least once a week to slough off dead skin cells and encourage healthy skin. Exfoliating will also promote healthy cell turnover. This process allows your glowing skin to shine through, leaving you with a vibrant and smooth complexion. Exfoliation also reduces fine lines and wrinkles. Bonus: Your skin will also feel way smoother!
Step 2: Hair Removal
I depend on Sally Hansen’s line of at home wax strips to easily and effectively remove unwanted hair in a snap! I use the Sally Hansen Wax Strip Body. It’s user friendly if you aren’t used to waxing yourself and makes the process a snap! No need to heat up any wax and deal with applying the hard way.
Step 3: Hydrate
It’s important to keep your skin moisturized to maintain that perfect supple look. Make sure to apply a body lotion (or even face moisturizer!) to the legs. I love to mix a little bit of tinted BB Cream in with my lotion to give a little more oomph and provide the instant appearance of a healthy glow.
Step 4: Protect
Legs should be protected just like the rest of your skin! Don’t forget to apply sunscreen to your legs just as you would to more obvious skin zones like your shoulders or face. There is nothing that hurts worse than a surprise sunburn in an unexpected place like the back of your calves or top of your feet.
Step 5: Soothe
I love Sally Hansen’s Zero Bumps Bikini Spray on that sensitive area after the hair removal process! This ensures that every inch of your legs will stay looking summer perfect. It’s one of my summer must haves!
