Every girl dreams of having of gorgeous, super smooth legs! It’s an asset she’s proud to flaunt and then blush at every compliment she receives. You can get pretty legs too! All you’ve got to do is shower them with love and attention. Here are 8 really simple tips to get the legs you’ve always desired!
1. No more leg fuzz!
It’s completely up to you which hair removal method you’re comfortable with. Laser hair removal treatment is effective, but also slightly expensive. Shaving, waxing and hair removal creams are great alternatives too. If you prefer shaving, invest in a good quality razor (use a new one every time) and shaving gel. It will save you from the cuts, the burns and the marks. Don’t forget to moisturize your legs immediately after shaving and waxing as it keeps your skin supple and hydrated.
2. Bubble spa for your legs
Just like you get a pedicure done for your feet, your legs need the same love. All you’ve got to do is fill a bucket with lukewarm water, add a few drops of body oil and shampoo. Then, gently immerse your legs and let them soak for about 20 to 30 minutes. Remove them, and use a pumice stone or a loofah to clean your legs of dirt and dead skin cells. Moisturize your legs after. This will leave them super soft and smooth.
3. Massage and relax
For flawless and glossy legs, an oil massage once or twice a week is perfect! It’s relaxing and it’s bound to give your legs a makeover. Just remember to wash your legs with soap and apply a thin layer of body cream afterwards to keep your legs smooth and baby soft.
4. Moisturize and moisturize!
Every time you step out from a shower, don’t forget to moisturize your legs. It keeps your skin silky instead of scaley and does away with flaky skin. Invest in a quality one that contains skin-tightening properties and you’re good to go!
5. Work it like you mean it
To make sure that your legs get sculpted and toned to perfection, regular exercising is the key. You don’t necessarily need to join the gym for this, you can exercise indoors and outdoors Walking, swimming, cycling, yoga, squats and running are some of the easiest and most effective ways to keep your legs toned and fit.
6. Exfoliate, exfoliate and exfoliate!
You can either use a foot scrub or make one at home! All you need to do is pour 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a bowl, add half a cup of sugar to the mix and stir well using a spoon. Now gently apply the mix all over your legs and massage well. Let it stay for a good 15-20 minutes and wash it with lukewarm water. This helps to remove dead skin cells, give it a glossy finish and hydrate your skin. It will also help get rid of annoying ingrown hairs.
7. Apply sunscreen always
To save your legs from sun damage, it’s always best to use a sunscreen. If you’re wearing an outfit that highlights your legs, mix some sunscreen with cream and apply it to your legs before you step out. You’ll see the difference!
8. Makeup for your legs
Do not use makeup on your legs every day, save it for only special occasions. It’s perfect if you use it to conceal bruises, marks and scars. You can also add some bronzer or luminizer to your body lotion and apply on your pins to really help them shine when you wear a pretty dress. It will make your legs look flawless and sexy, of course!
