The make-up doll for flawless legs symbolizes my conclusion of the victory over leg and foot care. Delving into deep consciousness, I shall use my silent doctor cosmetology powder puff to unleash more effective valuable remedies. This can assist with attaining and maintaining healthy legs.

Glamorous legs that will never entertain the words leg amputation. This make-up doll will apply natural foundation, body and awesome final layers to recreate healthy legs and feet.

In fact, this powerful revolution can see your legs being defined as sensual or toned, and men as muscular, ripped or well defined.

So, come join me in this fiesta, using colours of nature for healing, while adding value to your appearance.

The first stage is consuming silent doctor teas for deep cleansing. This purifies the body paving the way for applying our leg make-up.

Combined three tablespoons each of dried crushed soursop and Pride Of Barbados leaves with turmeric. Steep in three cups of boiled water and consume quarter-cup daily hot or cold.

After cleansing, apply the first foundation layer through massaging with a light sensual oil of cayenne pepper, nutmeg, cure-for-all and khus khus grass.

The second layer involves skipping, jogging, walking, reflexology, squats, leg raises and presses, lunges, calf exercises, yoga, bicycle riding or spin in the gym. The third foundation layer is keeping a journal to record your progress.

The final applications of the make-up doll are endurance, conversation and visualization. Endurance involves the ability to maintain the base foundation of weekly cleansing, exercise, good nutrition practices and diligence. If your applications don’t smudge, it will be possible to keep poor circulation, cellulite, gangrene, athlete foot, foot ulcers and the others challenges at bay.

Conversation involves talking to the experts even if a fee is involved. The experts are the coaches and athletes who have claims to success.

Visualization includes purchasing the Better Health Magazine and framing pictures from the October and September publications featuring Saskia Griffith (CAC Bikini Fitness Queen, 2012), Nadia Bretney (Best Bikini Body, 2012) and Dorell Coulthurst (Mr Bridgetown 2012) and affirming “I will have legs like the featured athletes and I will continue to persevere”.

Finally, appreciating the aesthetic of silent doctors and beautiful legs has saved and preserved my divinity. So, act now, care your legs and save them from amputation!
