Who doesn’t love body scrubs? A good body scrub is like a magic little beauty potion: it will open your pores and banish dead skin cells, leaving you with smooth, healthy-looking skin.

Nothing beats waxing for smooth, hair-free skin all summer long. Because waxing removes hair at the root the results are more effective and last longer than shaving. If you're tired of shaving every day, waxing may be for you -- but it can be intimidating for beginners.
I was chatting with someone on my flight back from my vacation. She lived in another country where salons are hard to come by or if they are around, they aren't very good. So, sometimes a girl has got to depend on herself.
