Get a Banging Body for Valentine's Day with These Beauty Buys

How to show your skin (and your man) some love this holiday

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.

Scrub-a-Dub-Dub
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.

ZZ Top-Approved
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).

Sweet Lips
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.
