It’s summer! Or rather what we in England class as summer and while our weather may be unpredictable I do love being able to bare my legs when I get the chance!
When it comes to beauty I love quick and easy solutions with minimal fuss.It’s a good idea to exfoliate and moisturise after shaving to keep your pins looking great and super soft. Next up you need a good razor and shave gel. Personally I love that I can just use the Venus With A Touch Of Olay Violet Swirl Shave Gel with my Venus Swirl razor and I’m good to go. I’m pretty much a brand loyalist in most products so its great that Venus have partnered with another great brand Olay on the gel. (I’ve actually been using the Shave Gel since February when I picked it up at The Apartment and it really just feels soo good on my skin I also love that it turns from a gel to a foam once you put it on, magic ha!!)
To celebrate the newVenus Swirl razor which #moveslikenoother (named for its FlexiBall technology essential the razor pivots and actually moves around your contours- good news for clutzes like me I’m less likely to nick myself and I get a flawless shave.), Venus has partnered with the hottest fitness network ClassPass, and it’s in-demand studio GymClass, to inspire us to move like no other so our legs are summer-ready. Andrea and I headed down to work out with megababe Helle.
As much as I love running it’s easy to get stuck doing the same things all the time so it was great to try out a new workout and I’m sharing my favourite move with you below. You can even do this at home so no excuses and your legs with thank you.
The Move : Venus Swirl Dumbbell Punch
· Take a dumbbell in each hand, test your strength with a larger weight
· Perch at the end of a bench to stretch and work your calves at the same time
· Make a punching action pushing one dumbbell forward, keeping the other close to your chest
· Return this arm and repeat on the other side
· Repeat until each side has 10-12 reps
Results: This is a fat burning exercise, working the arms and toning the calves
Let me know how you get on and maybe send some new workouts my way!
Venus Swirl is available in Boots nationwide, RRP £11.99 but it’s currently on sale.
Have an awesome day!
