Summer Beauty: Show A Little Leg!

6/30/2014


It's summer. It's time to wear dresses, shorts and sandals and show off your tan, smooth legs and cute little painted toes! Problem: I don't have painted toes or tan legs (and they are rarely smooth). I hate to dive into the details here, but shaving is one of those things that I'm extremely careless at. It's like I'm in a speed race, and I cannot tell you the countless number of scrapes and pricks. So perhaps I should revise that first sentence to say: It's time to wear dresses, shorts and sandals and try not to be too embarrassed about chipping toes and bruised and banged up pale white legs. Super sexy.

The other day I tried this hair removal cream called Veet. It is neat. Seriously, yes I had to write that. Basically you get in the shower and before turning on the water, cover your legs (and wherever else you want to get rid of hair), wait three minutes then scrape it off and rinse. Hair gone. Weird: yes. Effective: totally. It does a great job of eliminating the stubble factor. It does take more time than shaving (especially if you're like me), but it would be totally worth it before a date night or special event.

And if you're looking for a few other summer hacks here are three tips for staying cool and super good-looking all summer long:

Store your body mist (or perfume) in the fridge. Ahhh....cooling mist + you smell ah-mazing.

Banish the hair dryer and add some sea salt to your hair, for fresh, beachy waves without blow drying! This is a great one or you can make your own: just 8 oz of add warm water, 1 teaspoon of sea salt, 1/2 teaspoon of conditioner (use coconut if you want a beachy scent), a tiny bit of hair gel. Shake it all up in a clean spray bottle and spray away!

Add a few mint leaves to your ice cold water. It tastes good and it's an invigorating way to get your fluids!

It's amazing what a difference a good product makes! I recently tried EOS's shaving cream and it's amazing. I'll have to try this out. Happy summer!

Ooh interesting! I remember Veet from when I was in high school, but it never really worked for me! Maybe it's time to try again...
