How to get your legs ready for summer – without breaking the bank | Beauty



Beneath my elasticated waist trousers (are we ever going again to inflexible ones? I pledge NO) are two legs in ready. My heating is off, my scarves are in storage, and in a matter of days, my winter pins will certainly emerge, able to waft in skirts and sway to Macca at Glastonbury.

Preparations are nicely below approach as a result of, whereas I barely discover the legs of others, I do really feel a lot nicer realizing that my very own – naturally pasty, fairly veiny and visibly flaky when left to genetic will – have been upscaled for spring.
