Spring is here and summer is just around the corner, which means you’ll be rocking bare legs and arms all season long as you switch to your summer wardrobe of t-shirts and tanks, shorts and skirts (insert perfunctory SPF reminder here). Here are four essential beauty tips to make sure your legs and arms are as smooth as silk and the products to help you get there.
Exfoliate your skin
Now that your legs and arms will be on display all season long it’s important that you don’t neglect the skin on your arms and legs. Smooth out an uneven skin tone and remove the winter build-up of dead skin cells through regular exfoliation (though we hope you buff in the colder months, too). Use an exfoliating scrub in the shower at least two to three times a week such as Elabloom’s Exfoliating Body Scrub ($15), which harnesses the power of volcanic ash in order to detoxify your skin of impurities. Or if an extra step to your morning shower takes up too much time take advantage of the multitasking St. Ives Renew & Purify Sea Salt & Pacific Kelp Exfoliating Body Wash ($9, available at mass drugstores) to maintain your skin’s radiance.
