Ready to Bare Those Pale Winter Legs?

Ready to Bare Those Pale Winter Legs?

With soaring temperatures and harsh sunlight, the approaching summer can throw humidity-clogged pores and sunburned skin at you, but there are natural solutions in your very own home that may help with achieving a healthy look for many seasons to come.

Changing your look usually has something to do with gaining more confidence about how you appear to yourself and to others, so when winter comes to a close, it’s time to take inventory!

Keep a log of positive (and negative) effects and decide which solutions are worth repeating. [Abcnews.com]
