Beach beauty edit: body

Life in a bikini: What a dream. But for many of us stripping off isn’t that simple. Winter dryness, pale skin, and wobbly bits can taint this should-be blissful notion of letting all our worries slip away and heading for the beach. Instead of spending hours fretting, prepping and preening, the right products can minimize this and work wonders on all of our body hang-ups. These prep, beach-time, and post-sun basics will help you achieve a beautiful body and leave you much more time to enjoy the sun, sand and sea.
