In our penultimate "Countdown to Summer" and school formal series, we're focusing on your body. We've already helped to perfect your skin routine so that you're reaching complexion perfection and we've shown you some great Summer hairstyles as well as some options for school formals or Christmas parties. Now's the time to focus on fighting the fuzz, getting a tip-top tan and elongating those limbs.
Silky smooth legs are a shortcut to sexiness so pick your poison: shave, wax, epilate or laser. Just remember that you shouldn't shave or wax on the day of a spray tan and also you can't get laser when you're wearing fake tan so bear in mind and plan accordingly!

The easiest way to get perfect pins is to exfoliate. It sloughs away dead skin cells, stimulates circulation and makes skin look instantly more alive and radiant. Check out our pick of top body exfoliators now.
Adding a golden glow to the mix has numerous benefits. It has an instant slimming effect, makes your teeth look brighter and seems to gloss over lumps and bumps. Again you've got multiple options: you can get a professional spray tan in a salon or have someone come out to your house, or you can go the DIY route with gradual tanners (like a body moisturiser with tan in, they take 2-3 days to develop), fake tan (often develops over a period of eight hours or overnight) and instant tans (great for last-minute plans when you need an immediate effect).
Make like the pros and use body makeup such as MAC Face and Body Foundation ($60) to cover any imperfections or blemishes. Then finish up with a body highlighter like Benefit's Bathina Body Balm ($55). Apply to the shins to lengthen your legs and add a sexy sheen.
