Ladies, It’s time to shed the stockings and preen those pins! Thigh high slits and tiny minis were seen on everyone who’s anyone at last night’s amFAR Gala. Kendall Jenner, Karlie Kloss and Hailey Baldwin – a sea of supermodel legs were on show as far as the eye could see. If like us, you can’t remember the last time your legs saw the light of day, don’t panic. We’ve got three steps and three wonder products to get your legs looking luscious fast.
It’s important to exfoliate before you moisturise – this is often overlooked, but is one of the most important steps to supermodel pins. L’Occitane’s Ultra Rich Body Scrub, £22, is enriched with shea butter and apricot oil, and helps to moisturise while you scrub. Use circular movements to slough off dead skin cells, leaving your skin super smooth.
2. Hydrate & Tone
After polishing your pins, slather them in a soothing moisturiser, or even better, pick a body lotion with an anti-cellulite formula, like Cloud 9’s Skin Solutions Body Makeover Cellulite Treatment, £35. Vitamin E and Grapeseed Oil will get your skin soft while Caffine revitalises. After a few weeks of using this bumpy skin banisher, you can say goodbye to the dreaded orange peel and welcome firmer thighs.
3. Tan & Shimmer
Instead of using your go-to fake tan; opt for a does-it-all leg perfector like Charlotte Tilbury’s Supermodel Body, £45. It’s pricy, but totally worth it, as you needn’t apply anything else to get sun kissed, slimmer looking legs. A shimmery body makeup, it covers unevenness, imperfections, and creates the illusion of longer leaner legs – think Elle MacPherson, it’s a real life leg Photoshop!
