There’s nothing I love more for Summer than a pair of denim cutoffs! You can dress them up or down and they’re comfortable. Only problem is your legs have to be ready: after being hidden all Winter, they often need a bit of work. Well if you’re as excited as I am to bare my gams once the weather warms up, invest in the five products below to get ready for the season ahead!
1. Parissa Wax Strips For Legs & Body ($13)
I’m all about waxing: I just don’t always have the guts to do it! I’m quite hairy (yes I said it), thus this allows for smooth skin for at minimum two weeks for me. These strips are large and have a clear backing for fast and professional-quality hair removal. A vial of Azulene Oil is included to soothe and soften skin, as well as to prevent ingrown hair.
2. Bio-Oil ($11.99)
I have a confession: I love oil! After a long and brutal Winter like the one NYC had, my skin needs major hydration and Bio-Oil is just the thing to do that. It also diminishes the appearance of scars and stretch marks — which I have like millions of other women. It’s formulated from Vitamins A & E, Calendula, Lavender and Rosemary Oils, and Chamomile which will instantly give your skin that J.Lo-esque glow.
3. Organic Doctor® Organic Virgin Olive Oil Body Scrub ($10.99)
Body scrubs are amazing aren’t they? This one from Organic Doctor® is intense, crafted from Organic Virgin Olive Oil, Olive Stones, Vine Leaf Extract, Aloe Vera Juice, Blackcurrant Seed Oil, Vitamin C, Sweet Almond Oil, Cotton Seed Oil, Lemon Peel Extract, Thyme Extract and Fennel Extract. It gently removes dead cells and exfoliates, moisturizes, and renews dry skin.
4. Weleda Birch Cellulite Oil ($27.50)
Celullite is unsightly, but it makes me feel better knowing that so many women have it! Using this birch oil will help your cellulite get visibly toned down after just one month. The oil is made with pure, natural and organic plant extracts that smooth and tone your skin, while adding to its overall health. Dermatological tests show a 21% increase in smoothness and a 22% increase in tightness after just one month of twice a day regular use.
5. First Aid Beauty’s Ultra Repair Cream ($28)
Last, but not least is this emollient, rich, and thick cream that deeply hydrates dry skin by way of its eucalyptus oil, colloidal oatmeal, and shea butter. It’s an instant miracle worker!
