For sexy legs, you need to follow a healthy regime. Beauty expert Ritu Makhija says, “Besides regular exercising and a good diet plan, you have to start by exfoliating your legs. While bathing, use a body scrub or a mixture of honey and salt with loofah, at least once a week.
This helps in removing the dead skin and dark patches from legs. Oil massage with sesame oil is also useful in increasing the blood circulation. Also, it’s important to apply a good, thick moisturiser with SPF, shea butter, and intake vitamins to improve the appearance of skin.”
Sun- Kissed Look
If you too want your legs to look like Bipasha’s bronzed legs, then you’ll have to do a little more before applying a bronzer. Makeup expert Simmi Ghai says, “For a bronzed or shimmery look on your legs, it’s advisable to apply calamine before putting on the bronzer to avoid any kind of skin reaction.”
You can also go for legs polishing for glowing and smooth legs before applying the bronzers. Bronzers are available in the form of powder, spray, cream, oil or lotion; and in various shades from light to dark. So, choose what suits you best.
