I am looking down at my legs in despair; they haven’t seen the light of day since last summer. Do you have any tips on how I can make them look half reasonable for my summer holiday which is in a month’s time?
You can help your poor pins by giving them a little TLC! Start by removing unsightly hair, and then exfoliate by giving them a good scrubbing to remove dry scaly skin. An old fashioned “loofah” does a good job, towel dry and pile on a nourishing skin cream. If you have cellulite use one of the special brand creams containing caffeine and anti-oxidants to target the problem areas. When applying any creams or lotions massage the whole length of legs, starting from toes and working upwards with sweeping strokes, to boost circulation and reduce water retention.
It’s never been easier to give your legs a healthy glow and by simply using a fake tan avoiding skin damage from the sun’s rays. Some products can be applied professionally in the beauty salon, it’s not cheap but the results are worth it. Other self-tanning products can be applied at home before going to bed. They are colourless, dry quickly and give spectacular results by morning without ruining your bed linen. Some well-known brands of moisturisers also contain a gentle fake tan, which applied daily will build up to transform your pale legs with a subtle glow. Look out for the latest self-tan products which come in the form of in-shower tanning lotions to give you a glowing pair of pins the moment you step out!
