Summer skin preparation

I don't know about you, but I seem to end up with scaly, dry legs in winter because I am just too lazy to bother! My legs and arms are always hidden with clothes during the cold months, so why bother?

Now that its warming up, I need to fix this issue. Just this week I've started using a few things that have helped IMMENSELY and I'm seeing a huge difference already! :D

Palmer's Cocoa Body Scrub
Palmer's Hydrating Gel Lotion with Aloe & Cucumber extract
Veet EasyGrip Wax strips
Remington epilator

Palmer's Cocoa Body Scrub
So I've had this for a while but not used it since last summer...I used it a few days ago and was totally shocked and amazed at how much of a difference it made to my legs. They felt sooo much smoother and nicer, the best they have felt in months. It smells deliciously cocoa like and is creamy while being abrasive at the same time.

Palmer's Hydrating Gel Lotion
I was actually looking for the cocoa butter tub but I couldn't find it (I prefer the tub because you can get the most amount of product out when compared to the squeeze bottle), so I opted for this. It smells like traditional Palmer's (however it doesn't have that strong chocolate smell) and its really lightweight, absorbs quickly and is great at moisturising! I really like this but I still want the tub.

These make hair removal SO quick and easy. As for the pain factor, yes it hurts, beauty is pain. 

Remington epilator
Whoever told you that epilating would give you smooth silky leg is a liar. It gives you a lot of ingrowns and bumps at first, but once you work out a routine that minimises this, all is well. I prefer epilating to shaving because it lasts longer. I like using this in conjunction with the wax strips for spots that I've missed. This is also great for my underarms, nothing makes them as smooth as an epilator. 

What sorts of things are you doing to get yourself ready for the warmer months?

  1. I couldn't live without my epilator - I've been using one for the past 20+ years, so guess I am in a routine of using it every second week and it does keep my legs fuzz free, and I actually rarely get ingrown!!

    1. Thats dedication! Lucky you :) I get a lot of ingrowns, I'm clearly not doing it right :/
