Dress Up Games and Skincare

It’s funny, really, how much goes into dress up games that isn’t related to the clothing itself. As the warmer months come around, it’s suddenly more important to remember the more extensive grooming that happens in the spring and summer so that your clothing fits well, looks great and all of that skin that hasn’t been exposed for months is fresh and ready for viewing. Skincare is very much a part of dress up games, and if you spend time working on your skin, the dress up games you’re playing will be even lovelier.

Summer brings on shorts, tank-tops, sundresses and bathing suits. It’s likely that you kept your skin covered all summer long, and the first time you pull on a swimsuit you may feel like going into shock over all of the exposed body hair and dry skin patches. Get started immediately with your skin care for the dress up games. An appointment for waxing will help some of the hair or grab a razor and exfoliator and hop in the shower. Scrub at your feet, your elbows and your whole body to remove the dry skin and then moisturize, moisturize, moisturize. This summer your dress up games will be great.

Dress Up Games and Hand-Me-Downs

If you have an older sister, you already know the value of hand-me downs. Of course, you may not be thrilled to have to wear your sister’s old clothing, but there is definitely some value in pulling on clothing that might be just what you’re looking for in terms of new something that is basically free. Of course, if you don’t have an older sister you might not be able to benefit quite as much from hand-me-downs, but you can still play plenty of dress up games if you seek out your own new old clothing.

Ask your friends if they have cleaned out their closets lately. Then clean out your own closet. Bring everyone together with the rejects from closets and toss them onto the floor or a bed. Start sorting through the items to find anything that might be fun to use in your own dress up games. You never know when someone’s old jeans might be exactly what you need to make your new cut-off shorts. And that dress that you only wore once might be perfect for a friend’s summer date.
