1. a sturdy beach bag that can endure a little sand & water. This cute beach bag i bought at the MAC warehouse sale for $15, it's from the 'to the beach' collection **Next sale is in June!** 2. a makeup bag with a spare scrunchie/hair pins, a comb, sanitizer & lipblam [with spf15, gotta protect your lips too!] 3. a beach towel, i bought this one from Zellers, sadly they have closed :( but Walmart has some cute ones for great prices 4. a pair of sunglasses 5. sun care products, the ones i'll be using:
*Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration- Sunscreen Lotion SPF 30: it gives a light & non-greasy application, it's waterproof & will keep your skin protected. To avoid sun damage make sure to apply every 2 hours!
*Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration- After Sun Moisturizer: Coconut Papaya, it has 'ribbons of lotion and soothing aloe gel'. It smells amazing & leaves your skin feeling really soft & moisturized. It's great to use after a fun day in the sun!
legs: Whether you're having a shower or a bath,
make sure to soak your legs
for at least 5 minutes
with warm water. This will help to open your pores
make for an easier shave
2. Exfoliate:Make sure to exfoliate your skin weekly
with a loufa or body scrub, this helps
to keep your
skin fresh by scrubbing away all the dead skin.
You can buy an exfoliator or there are numerous
DIY alternatives that give the same results.
3. Shave:If you have sensitive skin, get red easily or just prefer a pain free alternative for getting rid
of your leg hair... shaving is a great choice!
Always make sure to use a good quality razor to
reduce cuts and to get a close shave.
choice: I have been recently using the ‘Schick Intuition’ razor. It gives a
smooth and close shave plus it eliminates using shaving cream/gel because it
has a mini soap bar built in. The soap lathers & smells amazing! There are
different ones you can choose from depending on your skin type/needs:
It’s great for dry skin plus it has coconut milk & almond oil
awesome about this product is that is gives a really close shave (it has 4
blades) & that “the pivoting head follows your contours.” It does a great
job and leaves your legs looking amazing!
Use cool water. Cool water is not only good for your hair (eliminates
frizz/increases shine, closes cuticle); it's great to close up your pores as
well. Then make sure to pat your legs dry don’t rub because that can irritate
Apply lotion to keep your skin healthy & looking its best!
♥ Tip:If you
have very dry skin try using shea butter, it's natural & thick. It will
leave your skin feeling very smooth and moisturized!
Finito! Now your legs should look and feel amazing :)
