A girl’s guide to sexy legs

Friday, August 26th, 2011

Smooth, beautiful legs are easy to achieve!If you’re going somewhere in a minidress or a pair of shorts, chances are you want your legs to look as taut and smooth as possible. Thankfully, you don’t have to worry about the fact that you’ve been skipping the gym lately because there are ways to make your legs look gorgeous with products.

1. Self tanner is a miracle for legs. Not only does it cover bruises, bug bites and razor burn, but you can actually make your leg muscles look more defined with strategic shading. Just layer on more product where your legs need to be more defined, like on the sides of your thighs. A product like TanTowel – Plus Self-Tan Towelette is easy to apply and will give you a gorgeous glow.

2. A firming moisturizer with caffeine will perk your skin right up and get rid of puffiness from water retention – perfect for those areas of your legs that never seem to get toned.

3. A little shimmer goes a long way for your legs and will make them look healthy and glowing. Try a product like Michael Kors Leg Shine, which smells great and is easy to use. Just apply in a straight line down the front of your thighs and calves. Gorgeous!

Tips for great-looking legs

Tips for great-looking legsWhether they’re preparing for a New Year’s Eve party or ditching the winter weather for a warmer climate, many women will soon be rocking dresses that show off their legs. And while some gals will sport tights, others may prefer the alluring appeal of bare legs.

If you insist on stocking-free stems, make sure that your legs are ready to be seen – and we mean more than a last-minute shave.

“Sloughing off dead skin is critical,” makeup artist Linda Hay told Allure magazine. Look for an oil based exfoliant, like Babor Khanya Sugar Oil Peeling, as the scrub will smooth skin and supply a subtle sheen.

After you’ve exfoliated, apply a rich moisturizer to hydrate and condition your skin. If you’re planning on wearing your signature scent, select a fragrance-free formula such as G.M.Collin Body Hydrating Cream, as it won’t compete with your perfume.

While many women may think cosmetics are only for their faces, body makeup is imperative when creating gorgeous-looking legs. Long-wearing Dermablend Leg and Body Cover Creme will conceal scars, bruises and blemishes. A highlighter, like Karin Herzog Body Shimmer, can enhance your legs as well, as long as you apply it carefully.

“Draw a line down the center of legs, front and back, thigh to toes,” Hay advised.

Conceal spider veins without hiding your legs

Conceal spider veins without hiding your legsIn the warm weather, sundresses are a must – the flowy frocks are perfect for a daytime shopping trip or a night out on the town. But women with legs that boast spider veins may be hesitant to don the flirty numbers.

Instead of spending the summertime wearing long skirts and leggings, treat the small imperfections and prepare to flaunt your legs.

Women who have spent years taking precautions to avoid getting spider veins should cease trying – it may not be working. “I don’t care if you cross your legs, I don’t care if you wear tight everything – about 90 percent of unsightly blood vessels are genetic,” dermatologist Seth Matarasso told Allure magazine.

However, there are some products formulated to reduce the appearance of spider veins, like Cellex-C Mother & Child Skin Care Spider Vein Complex – a lightweight gel designed to diminish red or purple discoloration and prevent dilated capillaries by providing nutrients.

In addition to making the veins less apparent, you can also conceal the unsightly vessels with makeup. Dermablend Leg and Body Cover Creme SPF 15 is a long-lasting, quick-drying formula that covers imperfections and enables you to feel confident when stepping outside with bare legs.ADNFCR-3538-ID-19915629-ADNFCR
