‘Tis the season for perfect pins!

With just over six weeks until Christmas – gosh that’s not long – women up and down the country will be thinking about about what to wear for that all important Christmas party, and usually that involves flashing a bit of leg.

It’s funny, we only seem to think about our legs twice a year –¬†first in the summer for the beach, then during the party season. For the rest of the year our legs seem to go unnoticed. Neglected if you prefer. We read an article in the Halesowen News from the weekend, which explains why we should pay more attention to our legs throughout the year, and make caring for them part of our everyday beauty ritual.

Aching legs, thread veins (don’t forget our thread vein removal treatment)¬† or even shooting pains can all be indicators of further problems that lie ahead, such as DVT. Of course there’s no need to panic if your legs are aching, you might have just overworked yourself, in which case it’s time to take a couple of days off work, get a cuppa and put your feet up! If you are concerned though, it might be worthwhile going to see your GP, just to get a check-up.

Tips for party-perfect pins:

  • Exfoliate – pay particular attention to the knees and ankles
  • Wax, shave or IPL – taking your time is the key to perfect hair removal, waxing will obviously last longer or you could even try permanent hair removal at our clinics
  • Moisturise – use an intensive moisturiser that will keep working all night. Dove and Vaseline offer some excellent products that keep your legs looking gorgeous for hours
  • Shimmer – Adding a touch of body shimmer to your pins will make sure that you dazzle on the dancefloor!
