So as it comes to Summer, the clothes get smaller & bodies get tanner. If you're not naturally tanned, fake tan is a must for a healthy summer glow (not that you need to be tanned to look healthy). And for that you will want smooth,hydrated skin.
Here are my fave body products that I feel achieves that!
As you can see I have used this quite a bit & will buy again as soon as I've run out. I purchased this Lux Tahitan Escape Exfoliating body wash from Woolworths for about $4 on special a while ago. I love that it is small exfoliating beads in it too, while you still have to exfoliate regularly, this helps with cell turn over while cleansing & not being harsh for the skin. I create a lather with a body loafer & it smells like heaven.
I bought this from Sportsgirl (see here) & use it about 1-2x a week. It has a really sweet vanilla-ry smell which can be a bit overpowering. Any body exfoliator that you like will do the job. Before this I used a scrub by St Ives that is meant for the face but is really harsh so it is good for the body. Focus on the arms (I get a little bit of Keratosis Pilaris there), elbows, knees & ankles but do a general scrub all over.
I wax my legs (thank god my hair is so sparse from doing this) but shave my underarms so I always apply this afterwards to calm the skin. I got it for about $12 from Woolworths.
I rarely use it but when I do I like the Naked Tan Gradual tanner which is $29.95 which just gives a nice natural glow. I am not really an expert at applying it so I usually have some splotches that I've missed. I'm also waiting for the St Moritz tan that I bought from ebay to seriously get into tanning. Woo!
