To get your legs summer ready, VITA LIBERATA and eos are here to help in just 4 easy steps!
A great exfoliator is gentle enough to use on your face but will help buff away dead skin and dirt from head to toe. The formula is light and refreshing and doesn’t leave any residue. Perfect way to start your safe summer tan.
1. The first step to achieving great legs is by exfoliating, which helps to prevent ingrown hairs and removes dead skin cells for more radiant looking legs. Start off by exfoliating your skin with VITA LIBERATA Super Fine Skin Polish Moisturizing Exfoliator ($28, VITALIBERATA.com).
A smooth shave ensures your tan will go on evenly and get the best coverage. I love the eos Shave Cream, the creamy formula helps my razor glide along and remove every last bit of hair. The creamy formula leaves my legs super smooth and hydrated even in the driest parts of summer.
2. Next is shaving your legs for a smooth and flawless canvas with the eos Shave Cream ($3.39, Target.com). Whether you’re doing it wet or dry, the shave cream, (available in four refreshing fragrances: Lavender Jasmine, Vanilla Bliss, Pomegranate Raspberry, and Tropical Fruit) provides 24 hours of deep moisture, which is perfect since it’s recommended not to moisturize 12 hours prior to putting on self-tanner…
Vita Liberata is hard to beat when it comes to self tanning products. And the Vita Liberata pHenomenal could be the end of your perfect self tanner hunt. The mousse formula is tinted to make even application a breeze and the airy formula spreads well and dries crazy fast. Last night I was able to apply head to toe in about 6 minutes and it was dry before I finished brushing my teeth. I love how quick it dries and there is zero self tanner smell. I can hop into bed right after with no worry of transferring or extended dry times. The very best part is waking up to golden glowing skin that lasts for 2-3 weeks. And don’t worry about fading Vita Liberata has one of the best formulas that fades so slowly and evenly you forget its not a real tan.
Check out the swatch below. I put a sticker on forearm before applying the pHenomenal tanning mousse, shocking to see how pasty my skin was and how natural the tan looks on my pale skin.
3. Now get your glow on with the VITA LIBERATA pHenomenal 2-3 Week Tan Mousse ($54, Sephora.com). The easy-to-apply mousse is formulated with the pHenO2 technology which allows for a longer lasting tan compared to regular self-tanners. It also include natural and non-toxic ingredients with no triclosan or GMOs. Use a Tanning Mitt to ensure an even tan.
One trick I have learned in my years of self tanning is avoid oil based moisturizers when you’re rocking a sunless look. They can break down the tan much faster, to keep your tan looking great for as long as possible use a deep moisturizing lotion like eos Extra Dry Body Lotion.
4. While moisturizing post-tan is usually unnecessary, your legs may need a bit of hydration after having been confined in pants and jeans during the cold winter months. Apply lotion such as the eos Extra Dry Body Lotion in Vanilla Orchid ($6.49, Target.com), which not only gives you that boost of moisture for 24 hours but smells amazing!
