As it is now summer it’s time to get your legs out! Shaving and tanning products can often cause rashes or make your skin itchy. I have found some products that I love on my sensitive skin, and even if your skin isn’t sensitive these products can help make your legs smooth and with a subtle tan….
1. E45: Emollient Wash £5.45 at Feel Unique -here. Recently, I have ditched the shaving foams and gels and started to use the body wash I use for my eczema. This probably sounds stupid but shaving my legs with this was the best thing I ever discovered. Because this wash is an emollient it is extremely moisturising and I can’t even explain how amazingly soft my legs feel after this. This wash is also soap and detergent free, perfume free, dermatologically tested and allergy screened it will cause no itchiness, rashes or sensitivity.
2. The Body Shop’s Body Scrubs £5-£15 from The Body Shop Online -here. Exfoliating your skin is very important before any tanning products. Exfoliation will remove the dead skin cells and unclog your pores. This means that when tan is applied it won’t highlight uneven skin tone, and will look much more flawless. I love the body shop products as they all smell absolutely amazing!
3. Dove: Summer Glow Lotion Fair – Medium Skin. OFFER £2.62 at Boots Online -here. I used to use lots of fake tan all of the time, but my skin is just too sensitive, it would give me acne on my face and eczema on my arms – not good! Recently, I have been using this Dove Summer Glow, a gradual tan that doesn’t look too dark or fake. It is pretty subtle but nice. It also hasn’t caused eczema on my legs like the Garnier Gradual Tan. I am still yet to try this on my arms as I am a little scared it causes eczema in the crease of my elbow. I normally use this on a night and then the tan has dried and developed over night.
4. Nip and Fab: Shimmer Leg Fix OFFER £4.97 at Boots Online -here. I love it when I start to try different brands, I have never used nip and fab before but since discovering this product from various other blogs I love it. I have a wish list of more of their products I really want to buy. This is a moisturiser but it is a gold shimmery colour and leaves a lovely glow on your legs. It has a rose and ginger fragrance which smells amazing. Its perfect just to put on before you go anywhere as it dries in a few minutes, leaving your legs soft and glowing.
