You may have noticed from previous posts that I enjoy trekking around the shops finding interesting new products to complement building your confident personal style.
Because I know that in summer some people will never be persuaded into tights, I’ve been looking for products which can make your legs look their best even if you haven’t been on a sun-filled holiday.
I’ve found two that I would recommend.
One is called Perfect Legs Skin Miracle and is from a company called ThisWorks.com. It is, according to the blurb, a “powerful complex of stable vitamin C and E to help even out skin tone and restructure the skin as well as arnica to fade bruising.”
Having tried it, I think it’s good and does what it says it will. It doesn’t make the leg looked tanned – and I reckon you need a little base tan for this to work properly – so it might be less effective on post-winter white legs.
The second product is called Airbrush Legs. It’s an American product by Sally Hansen; and it’s like make up for the legs. You smooth it on with your hands and it almost looks as though you’re wearing tights.
The beauty of both of these products is that they are not permanent, they wash off just like make up. Since some days your legs will not be on show, this is a really good way to achieve an even looking fake tan, because you can start again if you get it wrong.
I have to admit that in the Sally Hansen product there is a paraben, which I’m not so keen on; but since you wash it off at night and you don’t use it every day, I’m less concerned in this case.
Although these are both good products, my philosophy is still that if you’re in a serious meeting you don’t see men without socks on. So the tights that that I’m recommending for this summer season, which are very fine but very hard wearing, are again by Wolford and they are called Individual 5. There are a number of natural colours and what you choose will depend on your skin colouring and of course the colour of your shoes. A colour that I’ve found suitable in this denier is caramel. These tights are perfect for natural looking summer legs.
