Editor’s Picks: Stocking Stuffers—They’re Not What You Think

Editor’s Picks: Stocking Stuffers—They’re Not What You Think

What’s sexier than a pair of long shapely legs wearing stockings with a garter? Not much in our opinion after seeing these pics of Naomi Campbell for Agent Provocateur. While Ms. Campbell is blessed with naturally lovely legs, we may need a little help getting our legs into glam form. After all those squat and hours on the eliptical, get glowing with a few beauty goodies that will have you legs in the best shape possible for “stuffing” your stockings.


Start with a Multitasking Cleanser

Today’s cleansers are double duty – offering treatment qualities along with the basics of cleansing. Look for cleansers that detoxify, firm and improve the quality of your skin.

Smooth the Bumps

Smooth skin is a necessity for perfect stocking stuffers, hence the need for exfoliation. We aren’t talking about your drugstore loofah here. No, we are stepping up our exfoliating with luxe exfoliants.

If you prefer a scrub:
