What’s in my bathroom right now? Well, that would be a very, very long list! But I have narrowed down all the must-have products that I am using right now to get ready for summer…
You can get most of these beauty products at your local drugstore or at online retailers like LuxeBC.
Hair Removal Essentials
If you plan on wearing shorts or a swimsuit this summer, you’ll need these hair removal essentials to get silky, smooth legs. I start by waxing my legs with Veet Hair Removal Strips. I do both legs and my bikini line and then scrub down in the shower with Lavanila Body Wash and touch up any missed hairs with a Gillette Venus & Olay Razor. Being Italian, I have hair elsewhere that I’m not too crazy about… For that, I use the new super easy to use Olay Smooth Finish Facial Hair Removal Duo Kit for Fine to Medium Hair. Works in minutes with mo residual redness left behind afterwards, just smooth, hair-free skin. I use Tweezerman tweezers to touch up my eyebrows and any other stray hairs.
After waxing and shaving, I slather on Dial NutriSkin Replenishing Lotion Extra Dry Skin all over both legs to help heal and repair. The next day, I start using Jergens Natural Glow & Protect Daily Moisturizer SPF 20 for Fair to Medium, every other day for a week to get the perfect glow. When I need perfect looking legs for a special occasion and don’t want to wear nylons, I use Miracle Skin Transformer for Body SPF 20 in shade “Glow Enhancer” to cover any imperfections, giving me visually flawless looking legs. For this reason, I use Miracle Skin Transformer on my face too! It’s the perfect tinted moisturizer for daily use and part of my 15 minute beauty routine every morning after putting on Yes to Grapefruit Dark Spot Erase Serum.
Fat Removal Essentials
If I’m not leaving the house, I have my Delfin Spa Anti-Cellulite Shorts on, especially in the summer since they are even more effective in the heat. I slather Mama Mio Get Waisted on my mid-section and Bliss FatGirlSlim on my butt and thighs. These shorts are AWESOME. If you don’t have a pair, you need to get some RIGHT NOW!
Proven effective for reducing the appearance of cellulite by reflecting your body’s own FAR infrared rays which help to break down cellulite cells and revitalize tissue. This improves the effectiveness of anti-cellulite cream by forcing it deep into the skin and cellulite. Bio Ceramic shorts also increase heat and molecular stimulation which enhances the effectiveness of exercise, increases blood flow, and accelerates metabolism to burn more calories.
The Crowning Glory
To complete my summer look, I use John Frieda Radiant Red Color Captivating Shampoo & Conditioner to enhance my natural red hair and make it glow and sparkle in the sun. You can get their Color Captivating products for Blonde and Brunette too! I highly recommend them. The shampoo and conditioner are salon quality (unlike lots of brands that claim to be salon quality and are actually crap, thought I won’t mention the specific brands I’m loathing atm…) and leave my hair feeling soft, manageable and super shiny. A little Moroccan Oil with a blowout and I am good to go!
We all know that deodorant is an absolute essential for summer! My favorite one is Lavanila Healthy Deodorant. I have it in several different scents and stock one in every bathroom in my house as well as in my bedroom so I can put it on no matter where I am or when I need it. It’s effective (when used at least once daily), smells great and leaves my skin feeling soft and pampered.
You can find most of these products in your local drugstore and online at places like Sephora, Ulta and Luxury Beauty Company.
