No other season begs for smooth skin like summer. From short shorts, to mini-skirts, to halter tops to bikinis, skin needs to be sleek and smooth. Since the winter months can cause dry bumpy skin, how do you get your skin silky smooth for summer? And what’s the best way to defuzz? We answer those questions and share our favorite products for achieving smooth bare skin.
Keratosis Pilaris, otherwise known and seen as nasty little hard bumps on the back of your butt, thighs and arms are slightly, but with the right products they can be a thing of the past. A regimen of exfoliation and moisturization will fix the problem!
