Unwanted hair, dry skin, chapped lips? Talk about romance killers! Here are some products to help you handle those not-so-sexy beauty routines and get lingerie ready:
Wax On, Wax Off
Are you cursing Cupid at the thought of your next ouch-inducing hair removal appointment? Take the pain out of panty line maintenance with Relax and Wax No Scream Cream ($19.50). The topical anesthetic contains 20 percent benzocaine (the same ingredient found in baby teething gels and, er, hemorrhoid creams), and can be applied to any area of your body 35-45 minutes before waxing.
Ditch the dry, flaky skin on your knees and elbows with FemmeScience's Revitalizing Body Polish ($32). The cleanser features microfine buffing beads, which gently exfoliate dead cells and remove dull buildup, so you can be a smooth operator.
You don't need dubious toning sneakers for runway-ready stems, just slather on Super by Dr. Nicholas Perricone's Supermodel Legs instead. One of the lotion's key ingredients, capsicum, is derived from hot peppers and helps increase circulation for a natural radiance that will definitely spice up your night ($30 at Sephora).
Philosophy's Oh Lolli Lollipop Lip Shine Duo set includes totally nibble-worthy glosses in Fresh and Fruity and Chewy Chocolate flavors your guy will love. Plus, they soften your pucker, while providing a hint of shine and color ($18 at Philosophy).
Sweatpants Are Forbidden!
Time to show off your body (and your beauty hardwork) with some sexy lingerie! The sweet polka-dotted Heartbreaker set from Blush features a Camidoll top ($58) and Bikini ($24) or Thong ($22) -- the perfect red-hot look for Valentine's Day. Visit BlushLingerie.com for store locations.
