7 Tips For A Sexy Back This Wedding Season

By  | 

Come wedding season (which starts right after the festive season) and everyone’s raring to show off that perfectly toned back and sculpted shoulders. But looking good (as you know) takes plenty of time and effort so if a sexy back is what you really want, then here are our 7 tips on how to rock that backless choli or dress:

1. Exfoliate

Dermatologists say that the back area is often the most neglected part of the body. One reason could be because it’s often hard to reach and secondly, because we assume that since it stays covered most of the time, the skin isn’t that exposed to germs or dirt. Truth be told, the skin on your back needs to be exfoliated properly and there are two ways to do it- get your beautician to give you a good exfoliating scrub treatment or squish some body lotion on a textured brush with a handle and brush away! Either will give you a much cleaner sexy back.

2.  Treat Skin Concerns

So you knew that there was a pimple on your back but you assumed that not doing anything about it was the better option. To be honest, you need to give special love to your back because it often takes longer to recover from any skin concerns. Got acne? Then apply a medicated body wash. Got eczema? Seek the help of a dermatologist. Got scarring? There are a number of home and cosmetic options you can look at. Whatever be your skin concern, it’s vital to get it treated at the earliest.

3. Try a Peel

Peels are trending of late because they have been proven to give skin a quick glowing boost within minutes. Plus, not to forget that they also remove dirt and other impurities, unclog pores and also help to keep whiteheads and blackheads away. We recommend trying a bridal peel which is specially formulated to bring out a bride to be’s hidden glow. Not only will it help to reduce any scarring or black spots but also give you soft supple skin that looks good. Lactic or glycolic skin peels come highly recommended!

4. Moisturise

We bet you slather on your favourite scented body lotion on your arms and legs but you forget your back. One of the tricks to having and maintaining a sexy back is by ensuring that it is always moisturised well. We recommend using an oil based body lotion with Vitamins A & E as it will keep your skin moisturised better for longer. Plus, don’t forget that even that sexy back needs UV ray protection! Sunscreen is a must when you’re having fun in the sun.

5. Heard of a Backacial?

Yes, there really is such a thing as a facial treatment for your back and it’s guaranteed to work wonders while all other treatments may fail. Backacials place skin polishing or microdermabrasion at the heart of its treatment and dead skin cells are exfoliated easily here. It’s not unusual for many girls and women to opt for this treatment as it gives long lasting glowing results.

6. Chemical Peels

Backs get tanned very easily too and we may often be the last ones to actually spot it the tan. But when you’re wearing a backless choli or a dress that shows off your back, that’s the first thing that other people will notice. In order to remove pigmentation spots or to reduce tanning, chemical peels which are more concentrated are suggested for the skin. Since the consistency is thicker and the formulation stronger, chemical peels often cause skin to peel off slowly. The number of sittings needed to get the achieved effect depends on your skin type.

7. Lemon + Turmeric

Grandma loved the results that using lemon and turmeric on the skin gave her and this miracle combination still works very well when it comes to reducing tan and giving skin a healthy glow. We suggest making a paste using the juice of half a lemon with 2 tbsps of turmeric and applying it thickly on your back till it dries properly. Another method which also works is to rub the juice of half a lemon directly on the back and to wash it off using lukewarm water. However, if you have sensitive skin, you may have tingling and slight redness.
