Today is National Nude Day. Actually, it's the 32nd annual National Nude Day. Who knew? Talk about the ultimate way to be cool on a hot Summer day.
Here are a few things to help you look your absolute best naked.
RYAN'S RECOMMENDATION: Body By Sonya Dakar Mineral Polish
100% natural and loaded with mineral rich Dead Sea Salts. I got a treatment with this scrub at Dakar's Los Angeles spa (Gwyneth Paltrow, Drew Barrymore and Fergie are clients) and I couldn't believe how well this stuff works. The technician scrubbed one leg and you could literally see the difference in color once all that yucky skin was whisked away. Available in two fragrances, Verbena Cypress and my favorite, Cara Cara. $48 at www.sonyadakar.com
WHAT? Unwanted hair
RYAN'S RECOMMENDATION: Veet Spray On Hair Removal Cream
Hairy legs are never pretty whether you are naked or not! Make sure yours are smooth as silk with this new formula, which you simply spray on. Leave on for 3-5 minutes and then wipe away the hair. Your skin will not only be hair-free, but moisturized as well. Lisa Rinna is a big fan. $8.59 and available at drugstores and mass market retailers nationwide.
WHAT? Firm skin
RYAN'S RECOMMENDATION: iQ Derma Firmaceuticals Firming Body Gel
Unlike most anti-cellulite creams, iQ Derma does not contain caffeine as a main ingredient. It does, however, feature a blend of patented ingredients which help firm the skin's appearance. Massage a quarter-sized amount of the non-greasy gel into clean skin. Use twice a day on areas prone to cellulite. $80. www.DermStore.com
RYAN'S RECOMMENDATION: Philip B Cucumber & Blue Orchid Hand & Body Creme
Originally produced as a limited edition in 1994, this yummy and luxurious creme is back! Easily absorbed, this lotion promises to tighten and strengthen skin's texture and elasticity. It's enriched with Vitamins A, B5 and E, which penetrate the skin to help rebuild collagen. $12.50. www.philipb.com
WHAT? Sun-free tan
RYAN'S RECOMMENDATION: Jergens Natural Glow Foaming Daily Moisturizer
A bronzed body hides a multitude of sins, something I don't know too much about personally since I am super fair skinned! While I am never going to be tan like Gisele Bundchen, I'll take whatever color I can get to help hide imperfections. Rachel Bilson is a fan of Jergens Natural Glow and I like this easy-to-apply foam, which gradually creates streak-free color. $6.79 at www.drugstore.com
RYAN'S RECOMMENDATION: Chanel Silky Bronzing Powder in Sierra
I complete the sun-kissed look by adding a light dusting of bronzer to my face, neck and chest and voila I'm done!
WHAT? Avoid Bloat
Finally - don't forget to drink lots of water and ditch the carbs and salt to help keep your stomach flat!
