Summer Legs - Color to Kill For
Back to the Blog... | Post Feedback | Author Bio | Printer-Friendly

We've been talking about skin the last week or two and now that we are officially into the season when we tend to see the most skin, it leads me directly to this week's blog—how to "manufacture" smooth, tanned, beautifully toned skin. The secret? DermaBlend. This company has been around for years, and most women have thought of its products as super-creamy foundation for your face, when your coloring is somewhat mottled, scarred, or imperfect because of rosacea, vitiligo, birthmarks, or just uneven pigmentation. But, DermaBlend has many secret weapons -- Smooth Indulgence (with an SPF of 20) for a flawless face (billed as an ideal foundation for "minor to moderate skin flaws"); Quick-Fix Concealer (for pesky problem areas, even dark under-eye circles, or tattoos; the company says it's for "moderate to major localized skin flaws"); and the highly sought-after Professional Leg & Body Cover -- a formula that combines high performance technology and science, with a simple beauty regimen and which gives A++ results.

DermaBlend products

So far, I have extensively road-tested the Professional Leg & Body Cover (and used the other two slightly less).  It is the Professional Leg & Body Cover that I am championing! The formula is lightweight, but with dense pigmentation, so that it glides on smoothly and evenly and covers a multitude of sins. You can even-out irregular tones on your legs -- and it even obliterates unsightly spider and varicose veins -- with a flawless coating of the cream; moreover, it has a built-in SPF of 15, so as you wear it you also protect your legs and body. The Professional Leg & Body Cover is a miracle-worker when it comes to covering tattoos, stretch marks, and bruises, as it can completely conceal the offending marks. And, it lasts for up to 16 hours; it is also transfer-resistant, smudge-resistant, and is allergy-tested. 

Easy to apply, you'll want to always coat your legs with a choice of over a dozen shades, from lightest Buff to Toast, to Caramel, and to Bronze, and to countless colors in between. There is a color that will match your legs to a T.  And in this season, when we tend not to wear hosiery anyhow, why settle for anything less than beautifully tanned, toned legs that don’t show a single blemish?  So, while Princess Catherine must wear hosiery (and no open-toed shoes), you, not being William's Duchess, can let your legs go naked (and feel free), and know that you've got any imperfections covered.
