She's Got Legs
...and she knows how to use them. Yes, those are my legs. I take pictures in all places and positions, HA!
If you are anything like me, before you pull those legs out of hibernation, you have some work to do!
FIRST, exfoliate to remove all dry, dead skin. There are two LimeLife by Alcone products that I recommend. Bamboo Renew has an earthy scent, derived from an essential oil blend of Lemongrass, Mimosa flower, and Litsea. It will invigorate your skin using bamboo and walnut shell powder, and leaves your skin smooth. If you are allergic to nuts, stay tuned for my next option due to this product not being nut free. Our body scrub, Scrubitini ,has a sweet lemony scent from the main ingredients coconut and lemon verbena. Sugar granules are used to gently exfoliate, while moisturizing with a blend of virgin coconut oil, shea, and olive butters. To review either product or shop, just click on their name.
SECOND, the perfect shave... why should our husbands get all the love from the LimeLife Charged Up shaving cream? Made from the essential oils of geranium, blood orange, tangerine and rosemary for a fresh scent, they leave the skin feeling soft and toned. To prevent ingrown hairs, exfoliate first, then when shaving, shave in the direction the hair grows. Always wet your legs first and generously apply our rich, all natural shaving cream to your legs.
THIRD, don't get out of that shower just yet! This is important. Our LimeLife body oil, Dew Confidence, was specially developed to help firm and smooth while providing all-day moisture. Dew Confidence offers an essential oil blend of hazelnut, rosemary, geranium, and mint, all of which help to tone and visibly improve the elasticity of the skin. Hazelnut oil, is especially rich in #omega9 and #vitaminE, both of which help to lock in moisture while the lightweight formula absorbs instantly.
FOURTH, get out of the shower and dry those sexy, smooth, healthy legs. Let's get them some color. The LimeLife Perfect Glow is a way to get great color on your legs, without the risks of tanning. It is a liquid bronzer with a formula that moisturizes and smooths, while leaving a glowing finish. This product offers three tones; Rose Gold, Gold, and Bronze. In the picture above, I am using the bronze tone. As a side note, this IS NOT a self tanner. It is water resistant, but it can be washed off with soap and water. I have used it on numerous occasions and it has little to no transfer on "high sweat areas", and leaves a beautiful, natural glow.
Now let's be a little realistic... if you are a mom, these five steps may be near impossible to do daily. Here are some steps you can take, that will help you to prioritize your self-care and keep you feeling and looking good.
Keep your body exfoliant, body oils, and shaving cream, in the shower. (I also keep my skin polish face mask there. It is the only way that I can get a facial mask in twice a week.)
Schedule a date with your shower. I'm serious... Tell your husband, that every Friday at 6pm you have a date with the shower to get "all the things" done. Remind him that you having nice smooth legs are a benefit to him too.
Lastly, be kind to yourself. When applying products, say kind affirmations to yourself and your body. It may feel weird at first, but it will make you love yourself more, feel more confident, and have an expectation that others should treat you well too.
Enjoy those legs this summer!
