How to achieve glowing, Summer ready legs

Now it’s May the weather is getting warmer out, and its time to break out those shorts hemlines, and show off those lovely legs of yours! What’s that?  Your legs aren’t ready to see the light of day?   Well this month we are offering some of our personal tips on how to get you glowing, Summer ready legs.

Step 1

The first step is exfoliation. I recommend using Biotone Micronized Beads, this product is easy to use in the shower or bath, and comes in many exciting aromas. A good scrub will slough away dead skin cells, leaving the body, legs and arms glowing and polished. Your skin will feel amazingly soft. I recommend during the summer months to do a full body scrub every seven days, and more frequently on the areas that tend to get dryer quicker, such as the elbows, knees, and feet.

Step 2

The next step for beautiful legs is to moisturize at least twice a day, once in the morning after bathing, and then again in the evening.  Biotone also offers amazing body butters in array of scents; Milk & Honey is one of my personal favorites. Moisturizing is very important to maintaining the skins youthful soft glow.  Every time you use soap on your skin you are stripping tiny water lipids away, leaving the skin parched and increases the ageing process.

Suggested Spa Treatment

If you are looking for a professional approach to glowing summer legs, The Fountains offers a spa Body Polish treatment.  This is very popular during this time of the year. You start off with receiving a full body scrub given by one of our massage therapists, using a Biotone scrub. Once your body has been fully exfoliated you will head to the shower to rinse off the product along with your dead skin, revealing a new supple layer of skin.  At this point your therapist will lead you back to your room, where they will apply a thick layer of Biotone body butter, sealing in moisture and delivering a nice healthy glow.

Step 3

To take your legs to the next step of being summer-ready I would recommend introducing yourself to sunless tanning. It is a great way to maintain that healthy sun-kissed tan without damaging your skin. By exfoliating your skin prior to applying a tanning product makes it almost impossible to leave streaks.  Guinot offers a wonderful sunless tanning lotion for both the face and the body.  Generally a sun-less tan will last you roughly a week. To ensure that you receive a long lasting tan, it’s recommended to keep up with moisturizing your skin on a daily basis.   As long as your skin is moist and exfoliated you can be assured of a perfect sunless tan.

Have fun showing off your beautiful legs this summer, and get ready for the all the compliments you will receive!
