3 picks to put your best gams forward this summer
Shorts, skirts, dresses—we try to wear as many as possible during the summer season. But baring our legs means we tend to pay a lot more attention to prettifying them than during the rest of the year. Check out three of our beauty allies for lovely legs this summer!
Smooth + simple
We all have our preferred strategies for keeping our legs smooth: but one of the simplest, safest, and least painful options is definitely hair removal cream. Pleasantly surprised by how moisturized our legs were left by this new find, we can even vouch for the lack of the displeasing smell that usually comes with such alternatives. Simply apply a minute before you jump in the shower and rinse off when you’re done. No cuts, no pain!
Nair Brazilian Spa Clay Shower Power Cream, $15.99 in pharmacies.
Whereas self-tanner can be a little tricky at times, in recent years, we’ve turned to bronzing moisturizers. Rather than with a dramatic colour change, our faux summer glow intensifies gradually day by day upon application of this softening, moisturizing formula that absorbs quickly into the skin.
Sephora Collection Moisturizing Bronzing Body Lotion, $19 at Sephora.
For occasions when we really want to flaunt our legs, we turn to this tube for a bit of shimmer. The silky formula enhances our tan, and adds a pretty (yet subtle) golden glow to our gams. (it looks great on the décolleté, or arms, too!) Plus, it’s formulated with olive oil, and vitamins A and E so it goes on super smooth.
Lise Watier Gold Liquid Silk Body and Legs, $30 at Lise Watier counters.
