Hide Your Eggs, Not Your Legs

No, swimsuit season isn’t quite here yet, but leg season is coming up in full bloom. I don’t know about you, but my legs are always a little shy to come out of the shadows this time of year. I’m always shocked to see my legs are pale, dry, and occasionally bruised? How on earth? Fear not! I have rounded up all you need to know to get your legs “Easter dress” ready! (Ok, maybe we don’t all wear an Easter dress any more, but these tips also serve to help you ladies in shorts and or capris).

It’s time to take your razor out of hibernation. Mary Kay offers a great 2-In-1 Body Wash & Shave that acts as both shave foam and body wash-in-one. Dry skin accumulates in the winter months so exfoliation is MANDATORY. After my shave, I like to use my Satin Hands® Satin Smoothie® Hand Scrub from my set. While showering just apply a few pumps of this exfoliating scrub to the legs or loofah and scrub legs in a circular motion. Rinse with lukewarm water and follow with a blast of cold water. Exfoliating removes the surface dead skin so make sure to immediately moisturize after. I love TimeWise Body™ Targeted-Action® Toning Lotion that not only moisturizes dry skin for 24hrs, but also helps tone, firm and tighten. Yeah Buddy!

No matter how toned your legs are, a little tan always makes them look so much more. And if you skimped on your winter workouts, a self-tanner is even more necessary. A nice soft glow will help to hide cellulite, scars and red patchy skin veins, bruises, etc. Mary Kay Subtle Tanning Lotion will build your tan gradually, not leave you streaky and orange; you will need a few days to get a good natural color. So, start now…and stop when you reach your desired hue. You have 10 days to get there! However, keep in mind that this self-tanner does not provide SPF so dab on some sunscreen before you head out the door. Mary Kay Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 30 should to the trick!

Now, get outside….free your legs from pants and tights and enjoy this blessed day! Easter Sunday is approaching….ladies; let’s hide the “eggs” not the “legs”
