Today is the day we’ve finally unveiled our legs here in the beauty department. Now, you might attribute this spontaneous flashing of flesh down to the gorgeous sunny weather but you’d be wrong. It is in fact more to do with the smoothing, toning and tanning wonders that have recently landed on our desks giving us the confidence boost needed to show a little leg.
The Smoothing Due: Weleda Birch Cellulite Oil, £19.95 and Birch Body Scrub, £9.50 – recommended to us by the leggy supermodel Anja Rubik, this naturally fabulous scrub and go a long way to making legs and bottoms feel lighter, lifted and more toned. Apply the scrub every morning and work in with an exfoliating mitt for the most intensive results, apply the oil from foot to hip and use long, upwards strokes. If you’re feeling really brave try taking their Birch juice for two weeks as well. Not tasty but very detoxing and slimming.
Kneipp Pure Mineral Bath Salts, £7.95: if that familiar heavy and bloated sensation is making you feel less than leggy, try soaking in the tub with these relaxing and invigorating bath salts. Expect the same ‘light’ feeling your body enjoys after a dip in the sea
Thisworks Perfect Legs Gradual Tan, £38: A morning must have – our favourite gradual tanner is easy to apply, doesn’t smell of faux tan and leaves a beautifully even glow to our legs.
