Q: I want to know how to hide any body blemishes, as well as information about the best body prep for a strapless dress?
Body blemishes always seem to appear when we want to show a little shoulder, don’t they? Battle them while covering them at the same time with a product like Dermalogica MediBac™ Concealing Spot Treatment - which is a concealer and spot treatment in one!
Dead skin cells are the very cause of a blotchy, uneven tan. If you are thinking about getting sprayed, exfoliate, exfoliate, exfoliate and then moisturise thoroughly. A good clean base will allow any colour to stay-put, without sticking to dry bits and flaking off. Using a gorgeous smelling body butter will help to ensure soft skin - Urban Rituelle Beachcomber Ruby Mango Body Butter is our pick. Want a hint of a summer sun but don’t fancy a full-on faux glow? L'Occitane Cherry Blossom Shimmering Body Lotion smells like summer and will have you looking 'R-Patz-radiant' in the moonlight.
