Get Sexy Skin STAT

My post for Teen.com:

Trendspotting: Miley, Selena and More Rock Sexy Cut-Out Dresses

The link above will take you to my post for Teen.com on celebs who’ve shown some skin in cut-out dresses. For seriously sexy skin when wearing this look, take a simple two-step approach:

1. Exfoliate

Never underestimate the power of a good scrub. Scrubs are great for removing dead surface cells, brightening skin and evening tone.

Pro tip: Exfoliate before you shave. It’ll help you cut closer to the hair follicle, ensuring you get the slickest shave.

The Best Basic: St. Ives Naturally Clear Green Tea Body Scrub

This scrub–made with natural exfoliants–is a safe choice for those with sensitive skin. The oil-free formula has salicylic acid, green tea and vitamins C and E to beat body breakouts.

The Best Vacation-In-A-Bottle Smell: Victoria’s Secret VS Fantasies Exfoliating Body Wash and Scrub

Need a vacay, but have no break in sight? Escape in your shower  (and get soft skin) with the smell of mangosteen and açucena blossom from this summer-ready scent.

The Best For Scaly Skin: Soap & Glory Flake Away Body Polish

 This scrub exfoliates with sea salt, peach seed powder and sugar while softening at the same time with sweet almond oil and shea butter. It’s a one-two punch for soft, sexy skin.

2. Moisturize

After a dry winter, moisturizer can be a lifesaver for those of us with dry skin. Apply product on towel-dried skin as soon as you come out of the shower–steam opens your pores and makes them more receptive to moisture.

The Best Indulgence: Bliss Lemon+Sage Body Butter Maximum Moisture Cream

This cult classic with a subtle scent is worth the money. The cream melts into your skin instantly and leaves you feeling soft and non-greasy. It’s my favorite moisturizer in the summer.

The Best Drugstore Favorite: Aveeno Positively Nourishing Comforting Whipped Souffle

For a no-frills lotion that gets the job done, there’s no brand better than Aveeno. This product is infused with shea and cocoa butter to soften skin instantly.

The Best No-Mess Moisturizer: Josie Maran Argan Balm

Balms are the best (I’m planning a post on them soon). I love how portable they are and how they work well on targeted dry areas like elbows, knees, heels and hands. This one is rich and full of moisturizing Argan.
