Want Winter-Ready Legs? Use These 5 Easy Tips:
- Remove unwanted dead, built-up skin and residue from the summer's skincare products by utilizing an exfoliating mitt & body polish or scrub. Start now and go until mid-October, with twice-a-week sessions and use both products for super soft and smooth legs.
- Skip the long hot baths or showers and go for medium-warm water & less shower time- the heat, steam, and prolonged water exposure actually drys out your skin. Also, make sure to gently pat dry the skin after stepping out of the shower/bath.
- When shaving: ensure that your using the right product to prevent razor burn, skin damage, and over-drying. Try a product that offers up skin nourishing natural ingredients like: Capuacu Butter, and Acai & Coconut oil. One of my fav's that doubles as a shower gel AND a shaving cream: Sol de Janeiro Brazilian 4 Play Moisturizing Shower Cream-Gel [find out more about this awesome product below these tips!]
- Cleanse your skin gently with a natural or organic scrubbing body wash that will help deeply hydrate your skin, but will also leave it feeling cleansed as well. Korres has a great line that contains a variety of healthy, natural ingredients like: Basil Lemon, Guava, Jasmine, Fig, Japanese Rose, and Vanilla Guava. They also contain no synthetic dyes, petrochemicals, or parabens :) [$19.50 ea.]
- Immediately following your bath or shower [and nightly, before bed], make sure to naturally moisturize your legs with an organic or natural approach: I love applying a few drops of natural Almond, Coconut, Argan, or Avacado oil.
The Beauty Closet Recommends:
Sol de Janeiro
Brazilian 4 Play Moisturizing Shower Cream-Gel
One of the BEST body washes I've come across lately- plus, it's so rich and lathery that it's perfect as a shaving companion too! I love the fantastic Pistachio Caramel scent too- it happens to smell wonderful :) With hints of jasmine petals, almonds, pistachios, vanilla, salted caramel, & sandalwood- it definitely is a scent that almost anyone can appreciate!
This product works well with a wash cloth, loofa, or sponge and will leave your skin ultra smooth, moisturized, and with improved elasticity. It's also formulated without yucky ingredients like: phthalates, parabens, animal by-products, propylene, glycol, synthetic colors, and petrolatum.
