Lauren Conrad’s Tips for Summer Ready Legs!

 

The girl has some great gams, so I am willing to listen and learn!

  • Exfoliate, exfoliate! I recommend Fresh’s Brown Sugar Body Polish or making your own. A great scrub will slough away dead skin cells, leaving your legs polished and primed for increased moisturizer absorption. To make your own, simply mix together olive oil and sea salt with a squeeze of lemon juice until it’s a thick paste.
  • Moisturize. Twice a day—once in the morning (after you shower) and once at night before bed.
  • Be mindful. Especially with what you put in your body! Before a big event and during the summer season I aim to really cut down my intake of salt and refined sugars. Staying hydrated is also really important if you want to reduce bloating and water retention.
  • Lunge, lift and squat. To keep your legs lovely year round, get in the habit of squeezing in a few sets of lunges, leg lifts and squats every day. This will totally pay off come summertime.
  • Keep it tan. Nothing slims your legs like a great tan! My favorite sunless tanner is by Kate Somerville, but I hear L’Oreal has great options too.

What are your best tips and tricks for getting your legs ready for shorts and skirts?

Lauren Conrad poses topless on the cover of Glamour Magazine!

MTV’s golden girl is all grown up and drama-free. How’d that happen? Hard work, a sense of humor, and a new perspective on everything she went through. Allow her to explain…Glamour’s May issue is available on newsstands and digitally (iPad, Kindle Fire and Barnes & Noble Nook Color) nationwide on April 10.

Photographed by Peggy Sirota in Malibu, CA Lauren Conrad appears (topless!) on Glamour’s May cover wearing floral appliqué briefs by Bluemarine and a gold Tiffany & Co. bangle. Inside the issue, LC suns herself in a printed Rochas bodysuit and a gold Tiffany & Co. bangle; she hangs by the pool in a Malia Mills bikini and a gold Tiffany & Co. necklace; she stands pretty in a peach Paper Crown dress, Eric Javits hat and LC Lauren Conrad heels; she kneels on the grass wearing a Miu Miu top and skirt, gold Tiffany & Co. and Gucci bangles and Jerome C. Rousseau heels; and lastly, Lauren sports a stripped sweater and shorts by Bill Blass and Oscar de la Renta wedges.

On body image…

“On the vacation to Cabo, I wore a bathing suit on the beach for the first time in years. Usually I’m just petrified. A couple of years ago someone zoomed in on my cellulite and it was so mean. I took it really personally. I haven’t worn a bathing suit in L.A. in years because of that.”

On her dating life…

“I wish I dated as much as people thought I did! It’s really funny because almost everyone that I’m reportedly “dating” is a friend of mine. About half my friends are guys, and I’ve always gotten along really well with guys. You just have to laugh at it.”

What really happened on the reality TV sets…

“During shooting, the producers would send us quick text messages telling us what to talk about. They couldn’t walk through the shot, so they’d just text me, like, “Say something quick about this story line.” That’s why we were always checking our phones!”

On her friendships The Hills…

“The show is what brought a lot of us together, and when it was gone, we didn’t have anything in common anymore.”

On what keeps her grounded…

“For me, the best way to stay grounded is to surround myself with friends and family who knew me way back when. There’s nothing like cleaning my mom’s dishes or taking out the trash to remind me that I’m no different than anyone else.”

She really is beautiful, isn’t she?

Lauren Conrad to launch a beauty book!

I have two very exciting things to tell you about today…

First off, I am so excited to reveal the cover of my new novel, The Fame Game!

Drumroll please … Voila!

What do you think?

If you’ve read my L.A. Candy series, then you know bad girl Madison Parker. In The Fame Game, Madison is ready to claim the spotlight at last. The only problem? Carmen, who has grown up in Hollywood, and might just be better at playing the game than Madison…. Get ready for some dishy, drama-filled fun.

The Fame Game comes out April 3, 2012 so stay tuned!

But, that’s not all… I said there would be a surprise, didn’t I?

Well ladies, in addition to The Fame Game series, I am also working on another book: Lauren Conrad BEAUTY! Like Lauren Conrad Style, my beauty book will be your ultimate guide for all things beauty. In it, I’ll provide my personal insights, instructions and tips to keep you looking glamorous 365 days a year. I’ll address everything from how your diet affects skincare and fun hairstyles for a night out to one simple thing you can do each day to freshen up your look.

I am currently working on Lauren Conrad Beauty and I want to make sure I address all of your questions, because this book is for you. Got questions about hair, makeup, skincare, manicures … or anything else beauty-related? Leave them in the comments below and I will check out all of your questions and work with my team to answer your beauty conundrums in the pages of my new book!

Lauren Conrad thinks it’s “important” that people change their hairstyle.

Fashion designer Lauren Conrad thinks it is ”important” that people ”mix it up” with their hairstyles.

Lauren believes people should try not to “over style” hair.

The ‘The Hills’ actress – who has two fashion lines, LC by Lauren Conrad and Paper Crown, as well as a beauty website along with her hair stylist Kristin Ess and make-up artist Amy Nadine called The Beauty Department – thinks it is “important” for people to change their hairstyles on a regular basis.

She told the raantt website: “I’ve taken an interest in my health, so keeping my hair healthy from the inside out is important. There’s nothing lovelier than lush, healthy hair. Also, it’s important not to over style your hair which damages it.

“Needless to say, aside from healthy hair I think it’s important to mix it up and try new hairstyles. Just remember it’s important to frame your fashion and beauty sense around what works for you. It’s not all about trends.”

The 25-year-old beauty explained a girl who wears her Paper Crown collection – which she has previously defined as for people who like to play dress up in a grown-up world – will be “comfortable in her own skin”.

She added: “The Paper Crown girl is charming, fun and flirty, yet sophisticated. She’s a dreamer and is never afraid to wear jewels during the day. And most importantly, she knows who she is and is comfortable in her own skin. The look and feel of the line is clean with cool and pretty details. I wanted it to be polished looking, but still youthful.”
