Most of us would like a perfect pair of legs. Whilst some of us are blessed with more naturally beautiful thighs and calves than others, there are steps that we can all take to make our legs more luscious. Here are just few tips for achieving a killer pair of legs.

Kick your lazy habits

Whether your legs are too plump or too skinny, regular exercise will help to get them in shape. Most physical activities are good for the legs from running to cycling to swimming. There are then specific exercises such as squats and lunges that can help tone them up further. The key is spend less time lazing around on a sofa. That doesn’t mean you can’t get your fix of evening TV – you can still do many exercises in your living room (you could even buy an exercise bike or a treadmill). Walking/cycling more and using the car less can also help, whilst sites such as http://www.healthline.com have some great ‘deskercise’ workouts for those with sedentary office jobs.

Run a razor over those legs

Razors are still one of the healthiest ways to lose the leg hair. Hair removal creams may cause skin irritation, whilst waxing regularly causes ingrown hairs. Whilst using a razor-shaving has to be done more regularly, it’s the best option for your skin. Of course, a good razor will limit those nips and cuts and will result in a smoother shave. Comparison sites like http://www.bestproducts.com/ can help you find the best razor.

Stamp out cellulite

For many women, finding cellulite on their legs is a disaster. Fortunately, as sites such as http://www.cellulite.com/ prove, there are many ways to get rid of the orange peel look such as exercising, exfoliating and using special creams to reduce its appearance. A more drastic option is surgery, but this should only be for those with serious cellulite as such treatment can be costly.

Dash dry skin with moisturizer

Dry skin can occur for a variety of reasons. As we get older, our skin will naturally begin to dry out, as it stops producing as much ‘sebum’ – our skin’s natural moisturizing oil. Using a moisturizer as a substitute can help provide our skin with the oils it needs. Legs tend to get particularly dry on the knees and shins. You can never start moisturizing too early, as well as stopping your skin from being as dry it will delay wrinkles, leaving you with smoother legs for longer.

Tread carefully in the sun

Soaking up the sun can help achieve a sexy tan, but the UV rays won’t be doing any good for our legs in the long run. The sun is the leading cause of wrinkles, particularly when we let our skin burn. Putting on sun lotion can prevent burning, whilst after-sun can limit the damaging effect of sunburn. Another way of achieving those bronzed legs could of course be to slap on some fake tan. Yes, it’s not as cool as the real thing, but it’s far healthier for the skin.

Good skin care should be at the heart of all beauty routines. After all, it’s the biggest organ of the human body and is also the part of the body that is on show to people as well as the elements. Unfortunately, keeping it in the best possible condition can often feel very challenging indeed.

Whether it’s dry skin, spots, or other blemishes doesn’t matter. Those imperfections can drain confidence to restrict your daily happiness, which is why perfect skin should be a priority on a 24/7 basis. Here’s how to achieve it.

Dream Catchers

#1. Change Your Lifestyle

Before worrying too much about ideas specifically aimed at improving the skin, you should analyze your life. Daily activities and routines can have a telling impact on the appearance and health of all body parts, and the skin is certainly no different.

The skin will react to your choices. Therefore, employing a healthier sleeping pattern should be one of the first things on your agenda. Meanwhile, you should always aim to stay hydrated with regular water intake.

In truth, the benefits gained from those improved habits will extend themselves far beyond the skin. They will improve teeth, hair and other body features. Above all else, though, it’ll give your skin the glow it deserves.

#2. Treat It Well

Following positive general routines will give you a solid platform. However, those aspects alone won’t keep your skin in great health. The daily care routines are essentials.

In addition to cleaning with suitable and gentle products, you should find the best moisturizers for your skin too. Use the Total Beauty guide to face moisturizers to find the perfect solution for you. When added to the hydration of drinking water, you’ll be sure to maintain that healthy glow throughout.

Meanwhile, a weekly pampering session will work wonders too. This could involve home treatments or a trip to the local spa. Either way, your skin will be eternally grateful.

#3. Don’t Forget The Body

Great skincare routines shouldn’t focus only the face. The body is just as vital for gaining the desired appearance, and it should not escape your thoughts.

There are many elements to keeping the body’s skin in good health, but that maintenance can be a pain. Hollywood Skin permanent hair removal treatments can make life a lot easier by getting rid of arguably the most stressful task. Moreover, you’ll probably save money in the long run too.

You must also appreciate the need for sun lotions, moisturizers, and other items that may keep your skin in better health. Essentially, anything you’d do for the face should be incorporated here too.

#4. Choose Makeup Wisely

Even when you take the time and effort to perfect your natural glow, there will be times where makeup is considered essential. Even if you don’t intend to wear it on a daily basis, having the right products is key.

First and foremost, you should be aware of the latest trends surrounding this aspect. Following outdated fashions will instantly make you feel more conscious. Nonetheless, it’s even more crucial that the selected products suit both the tone and sensitivity of your skin.

The right makeup, on top of a great canvas, is sure to make the right impression time and time again.

Did you know skincare should change with the seasons? Of course it should! As the weather changes, our skin needs different routines from us. When we go on holiday, we find ourselves wearing less make-up, leaving our hair as it’s natural wavy self and altogether being more as God intended us. There’s a reason for that. Not only is it less effort but it makes sense in the sun. So, as Spring finally appears, what do we need to change?

Bobbi Brown Hydrating Gel Cream/1.7 oz.

Moisturizer

Our poor faces have been riddled with cold weather and dry heat from inside heating and car heaters. It’s time to get the moisture back into our skin without it being sucked right back out. Go for a cream that has a healing or protective element to it. Moisturizers with vitamin E are perfect.

Take Sunblock Everywhere

Our Spring months are becoming more and more unpredictable. It’s possible to have snow on the mountains and a heat wave in the same week these days. You never really know when you’ll need sunblock but it’s so important for your skin. Having the best sunblock for your face and neck areas when you’re out about will be handy.

Cleanse and Exfoliate

We’re often outside for longer during the Spring and Summer months. The days seem longer because we have more light and it’s much more fun. However, this means that we’re more likely to pick up additional grime and bacteria on our skin. Good cleansers and exfoliators will be vital to keeping your skin clean and glowing. Cleanse with a gentle cleanser twice a day, and exfoliate with a natural exfoliator three times a week.

Eye Cream

Have you noticed yourself squinting a lot more recently? Or perhaps reaching for the sunglasses? Of course, we’re exposed to more sun this time of year which can mean our eyes take a battering. Investing in a decent eye cream will do those little black bags wonders. It will also work towards stopping any fine lines from developing. Top tip – Use an anti-wrinkle eye cream, no matter what age you are!

Neutrogena Healthy Skin Enhancer

Make-up Shopping

Now here’s one we can all get on board with! Make-up shopping! As the seasons change, so does our make-up. We tend to go for lighter tones and lighter foundations as the sun comes out. While you’re shopping, keep in mind that it’s a good idea to look for make-up that provides sun protection too. I just made sure my “everyday face” routine included an SPF since I know I’ll be out in the sun more.

Updating Your Wardrobe

You may be wondering what that has to do with your skin routine, but a lot of your wardrobe does, especially your accessories. For example, a hat that covers your head and shades your neck will give you protection when the sun is out. Dodgy sun burns are not a good look and certainly not good for your health. Make sure you have suitable hats, sunglasses, shoes and cover-ups that will serve you well in any scenario.

No matter what you do to update your skincare for Spring, be sure to enjoy the season!

When the mercury rises and the sun shines, most of us don’t want to feel like our skin is caked in makeup. In spring/summer, natural looks tend to be much more popular, but if you’re used to wearing a lot of makeup, it can be daunting to go au naturel. If you’re feeling brave, and you’d like to give the minimalist look a go, here are some tips to make baring all easy.

Clinique ‘Dramatically Different’ Moisturizing Lotion+

Start with moisturizer

When you’ve cleansed your skin, apply moisturizer to nourish and hydrate your skin. If your skin is dry or flaky, your makeup won’t absorb properly, and you won’t get a smooth finish. Wait until your moisturizer has absorbed completely until you apply any other products.

Smashbox Photo Finish Pore Minimizing Foundation Primer

Use primer

Most makeup experts extol the virtues of primer, so if you don’t already use one, now is the time to start. Primer gives you an even base on which to apply concealer and foundation, and it can also help your makeup to stay in place for longer. Choose a primer that suits your skin type. You can buy products for dry, normal, sensitive, and oily skin, and you’ll find some recommendations here http://www.vogue.co.uk/gallery/10-best-primers-clinique-benefit-porefessional-smashbox.

NYX Professional Makeup High Definition Foundation

Choose your foundation carefully

There’s nothing more important than choosing the right shade and type of foundation when it comes to achieving a flawless natural look. If you’ve got a color that’s too light or dark, you’ll be able to tell that you’re wearing makeup straight away. The color of your foundation should blend with your natural complexion. Always test shades before you buy, and make sure you try the product out in natural light. Go for a shade that complements your skin tone. If you have cool skin, don’t buy a golden shade. Instead, go for something with pink or peach undertones. If you need advice on shopping for your skin type or tone, take a look at websites like beautyambition.com or ask a skincare expert or a beauty assistant for advice. Most people end up trying a whole host of products before you find their ideal match. In the summer months, when you tend to have a bit more color in your cheeks, it’s wise to go for a slightly darker shade than you would use in the winter. Layer the product, rather than applying a large amount in one go, as this makes it easier to blend.

Too Faced Sweet Peach Glow Highlighting Palette

Adding blush or bronze

Once you’ve finished applying your foundation, you can define your cheekbones and inject a little color by adding a sweep of bronzer or a flush of blush. Use a brush to apply bronzer to the areas that the sun would hit, for example, the end of the nose, the forehead, and the cheeks or add blush to the apples of the cheeks. Go for subtle shades rather than bold contouring.

Summer will be here before we know it, so are you ready to be daring and bare all with minimalist makeup? If you’re keen to give the natural look a go, hopefully, this guide will give you confidence, and help you recreate the look with minimal effort.
