How to Look Like a Bronzed Goddess in Time for Summer
Sought-after Plastic and Cosmetic Surgeon Dr. Marc Malek is no stranger to perfect bodies, à la the VS angels. That's why we turned to him to tell you how to put your best, bronzed, hair-free leg forward in time for summer:
1. Get Rid of Hair
Laser Hair Removal is very beneficial in permanently removing hair. This procedure works best for people who have thicker, darker hair, but it will work for all hair types. The laser works by selecting the darkest and coarsest hairs, so someone who fits these characteristics will see better results. It takes about 3 to 5 sessions on average, and it's a great procedure to have done in the winter because you cannot expose your skin to the sunlight 6 weeks before or after it's done.
2. Use a Scrub
Your skin can become dry and flaky during the winter. To refresh it for the summer, use a scrub to slough off dead cells and reveal smoother, more luminous skin. Look for products with Vitamin A and glycolic acids, which have great exfoliating properties. I recommend the Exfoliating Body Wash by Glytone and the St. Ives Exfoliating Apricot Scrub.

4. Schedule a Pedi
Treat yourself to a spa pedicure! Paint your toes a pretty color to celebrate the summer and attract attention on the beach. Chances are your feet will be dry and in need of some TLC after being trapped in boots all winter.
