Bikini season isn’t just about lettuce leaf diets and cucumber cocktails promising to make you look skinnier than a Victoria’s Secret model. Beach beauty comes down to confidence, style and feeling your absolute sexiest.
So check out our tips as we reveal how to get smooth skin that’s perfect for flashing your legs all summer.
Firstly you’ll want your legs to be fuzz free. Rather than the hassle of shaving or the mess of waxing, we recommend trying out the Braun Silk-épil 7 SkinSpa epilator
. Not nearly as scary as it sounds, you can use it under water to minimise any pain. After you finish epilating, use the exfoliating device to give your legs that perfect sexy smooth finish. Ideal for use in the bath, don’t forget to slather on your favourite body wash when you’ve finished.
Before your holiday, make sure you’re moisturising daily
- it’ll help keep your skin in tip top condition in the warm weather. As with waxing you need to epilate a few days before your holiday because the sun and sea water can often be quite harsh on your skin. Don’t worry though – results last for weeks so there’ll be no need to worry about unsightly stubble and regrowth.
So you’ve got smooth skin, what’s next?
A fake tan
is a great way to avoid the temptation to burn to a crisp on your first day. After all if you’re already golden brown, there’ll be no need to overcook. When you do head out to the sun, don’t forget a high SPF. For fair skin that burns easily, a factor 30 is recommended. We reckon you should opt for an even higher SPF on your face, with anti-dark spot protection. You may be desperate for the latest Burberry bag but that doesn’t mean you want your skin to look like one.
Finally we reckon you should add a spot of shimmer before putting on your bikini. Whether you choose a product that’s integrated with sun cream or a separate tan shimmer, it’ll make your skin look softer and help to disguise cellulite and tan lines.
