Like most girls I’ve always been hung up about my legs and no matter what I try they never seem to look good enough. In the past I’ve had disasters with shaving, waxing and tanning and tried everything you can think of to achieve the flawless look. I wanted to share with you a couple of my tips on how to achieve amazing legs.
Step 1: Preparation
The first action is of course to get a wax or shave, stay clear of cheap disposables they will tear your legs to shreds and the home waxing strips are really a no no, (I learnt the hard way). If you are sensitive and often suffer from shaving rashes, try Trilogy Rosehip Oil, this can be used for any part of your body but works like a treat after a wax and should clear up any rashes or bumps within the hour.
Step 2 & 3: Exfoliate and Moisturise
Before tanning you should wait at least 12 hours after waxing or shaving before applying (I generally wax or shave the night before tanning.) First, you need to exfoliate your entire body. You can use any exfoliate, but my favourite at present is the Caudalie Merlot Friction Scrub, the mint butter scrub will leave your skin super soft and is full of natural ingredients. After exfoliating you will need to moisturise the dry areas of your body such as elbows, knees, ankles and feet. I recommend Korres Vanilla Plum Body Milk.
Step 4: Tan
The next step is the tanning, which is often the difficult part (however not in this case now). I have finally now found the easiest tanning solution after years of searching. St Tropez Self Tan Bronzing Mist is a super light mist that delivers an ultra-even all over tan without the streaks. It’s infused with conditioning aloe vera and long lasting colour that will leave you with a perfectly natural looking tan. To use hold the pump about 6” away from your skin and spray all over. Blend with an applicator mitt by patting over your body (I know we’re talking about legs but to get an even colour spray your entire body). Once you’ve got an even coverage wait until you’re touch dry before getting dressed.
Once your tanning is complete you should leave to develop for about 6-8 hours, however this product doesn’t have the usual fake tan smell so you can get on with your day or evening as normal. This is not to say you can put your tan on an hour before going clubbing as your tan will still be developing and may smudge on to your clothes, especially if you are wearing white.
Step 5: Finish
This may seem a long process but a few days preparing for that special occasion will be well worth it in the end. After your tan has developed the final stage is to wash of the excess tan in the shower. Once you’ve showered your tan away you should now be left with a flawless tan but to give your legs an instant glow, finish off with This Works Perfect Legs Skin Miracle Serum. This will help instantly enhance your legs and help combat skin imperfections, skin discolourations and scars. Massage the serum into dry skin and watch the miracle happen right before your eyes. Your legs should now look bronzed, smooth and ready to make any man fall at your feet.
Happy tanning and I hope these tips work for you. If you have any questions please feel free to comment and I will get back to you.
