How to get shiny legs & body like celebrity

Hey girls!

Today we are going to talk about all the things to make your body glow!
Starting with variety of nice body oils, Body lotion & creams & then ending with 2 home made recipes to make your skin smooth & soft to touch & lighter.

We all care about our looks. We should. But how many of us do take care of our whole body looks? We do almost everything for our pretty face to look even prettier.Exfoliating, Toning, Moisturizing. But don't our whole body needs the same? IT DOES.
And caring about it means getting really healthy radiant looking, smooth-to-touch skin.

So here are some of Tips:-
1) While taking bath pour a cup of raw milk in your bucket full of water. Milk makes your skin tight, glowing, & lighter. It also adds a little moisture.

2) After taking bath don't forget to scrub your heels to slough off the dead cells every once in a while & apply a nice quality body lotion/cream/oil on regular basis.
( I switch between oils & lotions regularly as I feel like.)

There is a pretty good variety of body oils & lotion. Palmer's , Body shop's, Forest essentials's,Victoria secret's etc. These are really good.

 You can also use olive oil, mustard oil, almond oil, aromatherapy oil, coconut oil.
If your skin is normal to dry- use oil atleast once or twice in a week & rest of days you can settle for lotion or baby oil

Here are a few pics of combination of products I use:-

 Apart from that I use BIOTIQUE WELLNESS's Banana baby lotion. Specifically because it provides me with silky soft skin & stays also stays for 7 hours & almond oil or Johnsons baby oil sometimes.

3) Tip to get shiny legs instantly- Add a little shimmer (bronze or golden if fair skin or tanned. Silver if dark) In spray bottle filled with baby oil. Shake well. Use it in on your legs or anywhere on your body to get that shine.

4) Use a shimmer base lotion like one in Victoria secret 's range. Or make one of your own.Take a shimmer base product like highlighters or eye shadows (golden/bronze) & add it to a lotion. Mix well & apply it.

5) Add 4 drops of body oil to your lotion & apply. Don't apply too much or skin will look greasy.

6) Mix half glycerin & half water in a spray bottle. Shake well. Spray on body & rub it well.(don't use on sensitive areas)
 7) Or you can simply use an oil like olive or baby oil to get the subtle shine.
8) Mix a few drops (5-6) in your bucket of water. Use this water to take bath. You'll see the lovely shine on your skin.
(For Very DRY skin:-use creams instead of lotions as lotions are water based & You need intense moisture for your skin. Apart from that Olive oil is really for everyone. Try a few until you find your best intense moisture lotion or cream)

This is about regular care.coming to the weekly or semi month care.
-> Scrub your body with a nice home made body scrub or that of any brand. Apply proper body mask.& see the difference!

Home made Body scrubs:-
1) Take 1 tabsp of grinded sugar (As per your body requirement). Mix it well with any lotion to make a paste (Be it the one you dont't use or anything). Massage with it on your body in gentle circular motion for at least 5-7 min.(Before or after soap/body wash. I prefer after wash) then apply pack-optional (Any face pack or fruit pack or anything).
2) Use a mix of baking soda & oil/lotion. Make a paste & massage it on body with gentle circular motion. Carefully so as not to damage good cells instead of sloughing off dead cells. Massage only 4-5 times on the same area.

You can also mix half tea spoon of coffee powder in any of above recipe. As coffee helps to rejuvenate the skin.

Beauty tip:-
1) Apply oil+shimmer or just a touch of bronzer on front area.from thighs to ankels. Applying only on front area will give an illusion of longer legs.
2) Don't forget the simple but 2 important steps- Drink lots of water.Include lots of veggies & fruits in your daily routine. Sleep Well & Exercise.

So follow this routine religiously & get a beautiful body !
Stay Gorgeous!

  1. i really liked your article ..but what about if you have very fair sking and dark hair in your legs .. i mean even when i do waxing still i can see the red spots in my legs where the hair come from ...does these tips above works in my case or no ?

    1. Hi there!!
      Yes dear, these tips work for every girl and for all skin types.
      Waxing and red spots has nothing to do with it.
      Yes you can calm down those red spots by using coconut oil or olive oil.

      however, if you have dark hairs don't go out wearing capris or shorts after oil massage on legs, as in sun light it will tan your skin further. Dark hair absorb light more and with oil the effect aggravates.

  2. Hey..
    I am the typical Sanwali girl.. On waxing i have these ingrown hair left.. I have tried scrubbing and bleaching and tomato-pastes n what not! Nothing works!
    Can you give any tips to get rid of those?
    As of now, m planning for the pigmentation removal laser treatment..

    Suggest something :(

    1. Hi dear!!
      I hope you understand that all the remedies you have mentioned are to lighten the hair color and not for removal of the same.
      If you don't have much of those annoying little hair , i suggest that you try threading 2-3 times. See if next time wax is able to eradicate all completely.
      And you have a lot of those and nothing else works only then go for that laser thing.


      Stay in touch and keep smiling!

    2. Hi! try this home made recipe-
      Take a portion of wheat flour , add curd to it to make paste. add 3-4 drops of lemon juice. Apply it on the are and after it dries, gently rub it, small hair will come out.

  3. I have blackheads on my legs after 5days of waxing which looks very bad what to do for removing them

  4. Hey Sarwat!
    sorry for such delay! I have been kept busy by other things!
    Sarwat, I 'd say, if these blackheads fade away on its own after a while ( as you mentioned that you have these only during wax time) I 'd advise you not to do anything about it. If it is temporary blackheads , probably you can see if body scrub works or a peeler.
    With love!

  5. Hi, i actually have a problem with ingrown hair on my thighs which leaves marks on them and i can't seem to get rid of them. I actually have this problem for years now, what can i do about it.

  6. Hi Melisaa Dear,
    Did you try wax? and for marks ( if you mean black tanning marks), Try Sara Cosmetics Oxy De-Tan. It is expensive but quantity is also good and it is effective. Also , try to work on the root. Blackness in that area is also because of driness. Keep it moisturized with the help of cocoa butter or any anti-pigmentation oil.

    Solutions suggested are many. At the end of the day, It is all hit & trial.see what works best for you.
    All the best,
    Let me know if you found anything working:)

    With Love,

  9. Hi I don't want to shave but I want smooth legs. How do I get rid of little blonde hairs before school starts?

  10. Plz tell me how to get rid of little blonde hair on my legs.

    1. Hi, Sorry for responding late. You can try some home made scrubs. But waxing is the best method. If immediately after waxing, you apply a good body lotion mixing a small quantity of it with water, your skin will become shiny and soft.

  11. Your blog has given so much information. Can you please​tell me how to remove blackheads from my nose and open pores on my cheeks? I've tried so many home remedies but blackheads are still there. Can you suggest me some scrub or cream or something? N i m from india.

    1. Hi, You can try The Body shop's charcoal mask, its reviews are really good. Or Innisfree's volcanic range.

      With Love,
