Spring is here! And the sun is teasing us with promises of a fun-filled summer to come. We all want to look our best when mingling on the beach or showing off our gams in gorgeous strappy sandals. And while we all may be busting our booty at the gym doing extra crunches and squats, we may need a little extra help from SkinStore.com to look our absolute best, before we’re ready to don that itty-bitty-teeny-weeny-yellow-poka-dot-bikini.
It’s possible that with all the sweater-wearing and eggnog-sipping most of us have neglected our bodies through the winter. It’s time to shed the long sleeves and the dead skin cells. Exfoliate with a delicious sugar scrub from neck down to reveal smooth, silky skin. I love L’Occitane Honey and Lemon Sweet Sugar Scrub because it smells like dessert and feels so nice on the skin, it’s invigorating without being abrasive, and of course it’s L’Occitane… and I just can’t say enough great things about that splendid French brand.
Get rid of the wooly mammoth. Hairy legs are not in season this year, so for the uber-close shave use a superpower shave cream that’ll lift the stubble so your razor can glide through effortlessly without nicks or cuts. I love Whish products, especially their Shave Crave… it’s hard to pick one… lemongrass, pomegranate, and almond are all super delicious and feel like pure silk on the skin.
Get a little bronze. Pale skin is stunning, but this summer the hottest trends (short shorts, metallics, chiffon) look great against tan skin. We don’t condone basking in the sun, so get the perfect vacation tan out of a bottle. Yonka Autobronzant rocks my socks off. It gives a gorgeous true-brown glow. If you’re blessed with an olive or ebony complexion there’s no need to spend hours spreading self tanner all over your body, instead maximize what your mamma gave you with glow-enhancing body oil. NUXE Huile Prodigieuse Golden Shimmer Multi-Usage Dry Oil Splash is amazing. It contains precious plant oils and vitamin E as well as golden shimmer particles that give the skin a luscious baby oil glow without feeling slippery.
If you’ve neglected working out and need a jump start on looking svelte and toned, we recommend going to the pro, aka Jillian Michaels. The girl knows fitness (look at her abs) and her supplements are a great addition to a rigorous work out routine. Jillian Michaels Total Body Detox and Cleanse is an awesome jump start, it supports the liver’s natural detoxification process to make you feel lighter and more energized. And Jillian Michaels Total Fat Burner is great for reducing cookie-induced fat. You know, sugar is delicious but it can really kick your butt come summer.
So after a little scrubbing, shaving, rubbing and exercising you’re ready…set…go to the beach!
