Don't do fake tan at the same time as hair removal...!!! You need to leave 24 hours between!

Slather your feet in foot or hand cream and bung a pair of socks on for a few hours.

Don't do fake tan full stop. DH won't like the smell!

I wish I could do fake tan but it always looks streaky. I have a bottle of holiday skin in the cabinet, how can I apply it properly to legs?

OP - deffo do toenails.

Pluck eyebrows?

I would paint toe nails,do a face mask, shave legs etc do nice hair and makeup. Probably make sure the house was super-nice looking too as that will probably be the most noticeable thing!!

Either bath oil in your bath or baby oil on damp skin after your shower. Makes skin like velvet. Plus defuzzing/toenails/clean hair etc

thanks all - I had a lovely soak in the bath, and a general de-fuzz, then went for the Dove summer glow option (not smelly at all), sorted out the toenails, plucked the eyebrows, and moisturised everything not already covered in Dove. Decided to leave the hair - never a success washing it in the evening anyway, so sorted that out this morning. Right, ready for anything now!!! wink
