Get your legs dress worthy & ready

22 Apr

This week Refinery 29 posted tips and tricks to get ready for summer with killer legs. After a long, long winter, most of us are feeling and seeing the effects of winter– dry, “white as a ghost” skin.  Ok, maybe it’s just me.  With wedding season approaching, R29 names 3 key steps to getting your legs ready- keep these in mind when preparing for the wedding day.

Step 1: Exfoliate and remove dead skin cells for a blank canvas for steps 2 and 3. R29 recommends Kate Somerville’s Exfolikate Body scrub; I like Fresh’s Brown Sugar Body Polish.

Step 2: Moisturize!  This can’t be stressed enough as dry skin doesn’t take self-tanner well and causes streaking. I like Aveeno’s Positively Nourishing– smells great and is not too thick or greasy.  R29 also encourages using anti-cellulite products. I’ve found these don’t work, but if nothing else, it’s a moisturizer.

Step 3: Self-tan from a bottle, not in a booth. If you read Wednesday’s post, I love and recommend Tan Towels. R29 mentions Michael Kors Leg Shine– I have wanted to purchase and try.

How do you get your legs dress worthy?
