Oh stop blushing. We’re not asking you to run through the streets in your birthday suit or attend a business meeting sans clothes. But we all have times when we want to look our best in the buff. While some of us are blessed with blemish-free, wrinkle-free and jiggle-free skin, the reality is nobody is absolutely perfect. So, we need products. Thankfully there are lots of them out there, although not all are created equally. Here’s a roundup of quality cosmetics, lotions and potions to get your skin and body in tip-top shape for when the lights go out-or stay on.
Sex appeal has a lot to do with sense of smell and touch. Start things off right with sexy skin. You’ll feel as sweet as sugar (and possible taste as good, too) with the Age Defying Body Buff($14.95) from Zia Natural Skincare. Spread the honey and brown sugar scrub over your skin, leaving your body tastily smooth.
Most of us have indulged in too much sun at one point in our lives. While we’d like to consider it a lesson learned, we may have some sun damage on our “decollete” to remind us of our past sun-worshiping sins. The Sea Tonic Bust Gel ($49.50) by Phytomer soothes and tones the skin of the decollete, instantly firming and contouring the bust. What’s more, iridescent bubbles create an enticing shimmer, perfect for candlelight.
Get a flawless complexion without worrying about a meltdown. Amazing Base($42), the all-in-one foundation, powder, concealer and sunscreen by Jane Iredale provides unsurpassed coverage and staying power and actually helps improve the skin with titanium dioxide and zinc oxide, which act as anti-inflammatories.
The French have such polite names for body parts. Whip your derriere in shape with Victoria’s Secret’s Cellulite Rx Lipotherm Contouring Cream ($96). The powerful agents in this firming cream smooths and actively slims the skin, leaving your delicate derriere smoother and sensually contoured.
Make your skin irresistible to touch with the Hydra System Rich Delicate Body Cream($146.50) from Vie. Drape your skin with this silky velvet cream and you’ll never spend another night alone. Not to be overlooked, your hair should send the right message. Go for the tousled bedhead with ISO Nexture($20.99). With one treatment you’ll have soft, sexy waves that can last up to 20 shampoos.
