If your skin has been hiding behind leggings and sweaters all winter, it’s time to get ready to bare all. To help you in the process, we found some great spa products to de-fuzz, smooth, firm and hydrate every inch of your body before the summer sun hits. Once it does, you will want to keep using these products to maintain your summer glow.
Amope Pedi Perfect Wet & Dry will get those calloused winter feet ready for sandal weather. The great thing about this product is that you can use it in the bath or shower, so it’s easy to multi-task. No need to spend special time removing rough skin. Make it part of your shower or bath routine, and you won’t be caught with unpresentable feet at the first sign of summer. http://www.amope.com.
European Wax has just launched the sexiest skin care products to get you primed for the best summer skin ever. Strut 365, a collection of bath, body, brow and skincare products, all complement waxing your skin, which is essential for the summer. My favorite is the bath and body products collection called Strut Lavishly, that comes in three scents, Cheeky Strut, Sensual Strut and Graceful Strut. Each comes in a Body Polish, Body Wash and a Body Lotion. Best of all, these products all contain hair growth retardants so your waxing or shaving will last longer. If you layer these scents, you will smell divine, with no need for perfume. My favorite is the Graceful Strut with freesia, white rose, orange flower and a hint of white musk. http://www.waxcenter.com.
Sabon Tropic Body Scrub is essential to getting and keeping smooth skin before and during the summer. Sabon can do no wrong with its body scrubs which are made with hydrating oils and dead sea salt to smooth away dead skin and roughness on your feet. The Tropic scent makes me feel like I’m bathing at the ocean. Well, I can dream anyway. http://www.sabonnyc.com.
Farmhouse Fresh Citrine Beach Milk Body Lotion has the scent of a fresh summer day at the beach. Reach for it when you step out of the bath or shower and get moisturized with this creamy lotion all day. With the scents of coconut, lime, rum and grapefruit, you may forget you’re not on a sunny island beach. http://www.farmhousefreshgoods.com.
Luma Rx is a fantastic Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) laser hair removal product to use in your own home. Start now, and by summer your legs can be silky smoothe every day. Never worry about shaving nicks and cuts. I used Luma Rx on my legs, and after several uses I noticed the hair was not growing back. It is great for use on larger areas of the body, like the legs, but can also be used on the face because it comes with two interchangeable caps for use on the face or the body. My skin is tan complexioned and Luma Rx is safe for use on darker skin. It uses IPL technology to emit light energy, which penetrates deep into the skin to reach the hair root. The heat stuns the active hair follicles, disrupting the growth cycle and preventing future hair growth. Hair usually begins to fall out within 7-10 days. http://www.luma-rx.com.
For pure, unadulterated hydration, slather on EmerginC Coconut-Argan Body Oil and Grape Stem Cell, White Tea & Seaweed Body Butter. For a truly decadent body experience, use the Ginger-Lime Sugar Scrub first in the shower or bath, and then apply the moisturizers. I had a mini-leg treatment that included these products, and I’ve never seen my legs so shiny and smooth. These will become your go to moisturizers for summer and beyond. http://www.emerginc.com.
For facing the sun this summer, it’s important to use targeted treatments like the Eminence Bright Skin Targeted Dark Spot Treatment or Firm Skin Anti-Wrinkle Treatment. The Targeted Dark Spot Treatment is formulated with licorice root extract, punanarva root extract and turmeric root, to reduce dark spots. The Targeted Firm Skin Treatment has acai berry, a natural retinol alternative containing chicory root and tara tree gum, botanical hyaluronic acid and snow algae extract. http://www.eminenceorganics.com/us.
