Hide Spider Veins
Try: Tinted Self-Tanner. Slather it on legs to minimize the contrast between blue or red leg veins and skin. Apply evenly streaks could end up highlighting the veins you're trying to tone down. Choose a self-tanner formula that also has bronzer so you'll see your mistakes instantly if you miss a spot. Try L'Oréal Sublime Bronze Luminous Bronzer Self-Tanning Lotion ($10, drugstores) with subtle light-reflecting pigment to further blur veins.
Downplay Dimpled Thighs
Try: Moisturizing Body Scrub. Boosting circulation to the thigh area can lessen the orange-peel look, says Marcia Kilgore, founder of Soap & Glory, a beauty line sold at Target. One way to do this: Spend a minute in the shower rubbing thighs with a smoothing scrub. Try St. Ives Smoothing In-Shower Exfoliating Body Polish in Mineral Therapy ($7, drugstores). Follow with self-tanner application. "Cellulite always looks better in brown," Kilgore says.
Smooth Rough Heels
Try: A Nail File. Smooth your cracked heels and rough calluses easily and inexpensively by filing down the tough skin with a 100-grit emery board (beauty-supply stores carry them; the ones for acrylic nails are sturdiest). Just don't scrub so hard that you actually remove calluses. "They protect the foot at points of friction," says Jan Arnold, cofounder of CND. You can also try this kitchen cure: Rub the cut half of any citrus fruit over the rough spots. "The fruit acid helps to buff away the dead skin cells," Kilgore says. Then moisturize with a rich foot cream. Try Earth Therapeutics Intensive Heel Repair ($8, earththerapeutics.com).
Lift Limp Locks
Try: Switching Your Part. Turn your center part into a side part, for example, to get more lift. Your hair will have more body, and the change only takes about five seconds to accomplish. Another option for instantly fuller hair: Flip dry hair upside down and spritz volumizer at the roots, then flip it back up and blow-dry for a few seconds to set the spray. Try Tresemmé 24 Hour Body Root Boosting Spray ($4.49, drugstores).
