Vacation season is coming around fast and every week people are jetting off to a faraway land for a week or two of fun in the sun, lots of cocktails, and of course a few days relaxing at the beach. For us ladies, that means that now is the perfect time to start getting our hair removal kit together and get to work on making our legs look great, ready to slap on the sunblock and put on our favorite new bikini.
A few weeks before your vacation is the time to start moisturizing every day to get your skin feeling soft and supple. If you can find a tinted moisturizer, even better – that way you can start building up a subtle, natural looking tan and keep your legs moisturized at the same time.
Now, as it gets close to your vacation it’s time to start with the leg preparations.
First we exfoliate! This will scrub away all the dull, dead skin cells on your legs leaving them looking and feeling fresh and polished. This also means they are in great condition to absorb as much moisturizer as possible plus if it’s waxing you’re planning on doing, it means that the wax will stick to the hairs rather than any dead skin.
Now for the main attraction. No woman wants to turn up to the beach with hairy legs so be sure to do your big removal a few nights before you leave to allow your skin to relax a little after the trauma of hair removal. If you’re a waxer, then Veet® Ready-to-Use Wax Strips comes in handy. The exfoliation done beforehand will help to prevent ingrown hairs at this point.
Now, you might be wondering about more delicate areas like the underarms and bikini area. The last thing you want when flaunting your bikini is to be worrying about stray hairs. Luckily, the Veet® Ready-to-Use Wax Strips Hair Remover, Bikini, Underarms & Face are especially designed to tackle those more sensitive areas. As with leg-waxing, it’s a good idea to complete your wax a number of days before you hit the beach, just avoid any visible red marks.
If waxing is not your thing, hair removal cream is the way to go – it will give you long-lasting smoothness that lasts up to twice as long as shaving and it is a great one to take with you top up your hair removal while you’re away. Veet® Fast Acting Gel Cream Hair Remover for Legs & Body comes in an easy to transport tube with a lid that is perfect to throw in your case. This particular hair removal cream is formulated with Aloe Vera and Vitamin E to help leave your legs feeling touchably smooth. Even better news? It works on bikini lines and underarms too!
Last essential for your vacation kit? A pretty nail polish to keep your toes looking fresh and you’re ready to throw on the flip flops, the bikini and off you go down to the beach!
