Body Beautiful for Spring



It’s time to shed your winter “coat”! For most of us, shaving and waxing are necessary evils, unless you’re comfortable showing your hair-raising style like Oscar winner Mo’Nique. Spring is the ideal time to prepare for the body-revealing fashions of summer months. So get a leg up and buff and shine your way to sexy skin-baring moments.

Follow these three buff and shine steps for body beautiful:

1. Exfoliate (Buff)
