The jeans are on, the jumpers have made it out of those storage boxes under your bed, but socks? Not yet thank you very much. Yes, as relieved as we are to take a break from all that summer body and beauty maintenance, we ‘re not quite ready to cover up every last bit of flesh. And it’s putting our ankles firmly in the beauty spotlight. With bumps, bruises, veins and the occasional hair removal oversight customary to the area, here’s a few things you can do to make sure they’re attention-grabbing for the right reasons…
A light Spray Tan disguises the look of obvious veins or bumps and scars (we all have them) anything major can be softened further with a dab of foundation.
Showing off a bare heel as well as an ankle? A Callus Peel will kick stubborn dead skin into touch.
A professional Body Scrub conditions the skin as well as smoothing it. Especially if you look out for one with natural fruit acids or salt. It’s so good you can skip body lotion for a week.
If you need a waxing break, try Sugaring for a skin-friendly de-fuzzing alternative on the lower leg.
