Achieving soft and radiant skin may seem like an impossible task, but we’re going to let you in on a secret -- getting that summer glow is easier (and cheaper) than you think. All you have to do is follow these five steps to smoother skin, presented in partnership with Veet.

Summer, here we come!

Honey

This sweet ingredient is known for its antibacterial properties and can help you on your journey to smoother skin. Use organic raw honey on your face and neck for approximately 15 minutes before rinsing off with cold water. Alternatively, you can mix three parts of honey with one part ground cinnamon and turn it into a paste. Apply this mixture directly to your face and leave it on overnight. In the morning, rinse off with lukewarm water and marvel at your radiant skin.
Waxing

Consider using wax strips for the perfect bikini line, taking special care to avoid contact with your more intimate areas. The line of Veet Natural Inspirations™ wax strips, for example, contain 95 per cent naturally sourced ingredients and are specially created to be gentle even on sensitive skin. The end result is smoothness that lasts up to 28 days.
Aloe Vera

The soothing, moisturizing and anti-inflammatory properties of aloe vera can help you achieve radiant and clear skin. Simply extract the gel from the leaf of the aloe vera plant and apply it to skin a few times a week. You can also mix aloe vera with honey and rub the concoction on your neck and face for approximately 15 to 20 minutes before washing it off. This all-natural duo is known to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and blemishes.
Coconut Oil

You may use coconut oil in your cooking but did you know that you can apply it to your face and reap the rewards of its anti-aging properties? Vitamin E is well known for its skin-enhancing properties and coconut oil is full of it. To take full advantage of its benefits, simply lather the oil between your palms and then use it on your face, hands and body for smoother, silkier skin.
Drinking Water

Regularly taking sips of H20 can help ensure your skin maintains its glow. In addition to keeping you hydrated, drinking at least eight glasses of water a day can help you flush out any toxins.
