Ladies, summer is almost here and we all know what that means! Lots of time at the beach, going out and rocking your cutest dresses, skirts, shorts, and swimsuits. While we neglect our legs for most of the winter, the summer is the perfect time to flaunt them. We don’t want our legs to look dull and dry so here are a few tips that will make sure your legs look absolutely perfect for the summer!
During the winter dry and dead skin builds up all over our bodies because of the cold temperatures and lack of exposure to the sun. That means when we shed our layers of sweaters, tights and leggings, our skin is less than radiant. But not to worry, you can combat all of that dullness by taking one simple action: exfoliating. Use the strongest sugar scrub you can find (or make) and exfoliate your legs thoroughly. Make sure to exfoliate before you shave your legs so that you can get the smoothest shave possible. This will also help to ensure that any ingrown or stubborn hairs are removed, leaving you with the smoothest legs for summer.
No matter what you do, your legs won’t look their best until they’ve been moisturized well. Slather on a thick layer of lotion at least twice a day, once in the morning and once before bed to make sure that your legs glow! Without moisturizer our legs look dull and lifeless. You’ll notice the difference in your legs just a few days after you start moisturizing consistently and you’ll never go back! Get ready for a huge boost in confidence after following this step!
Get Some Color
Our legs tend to look their best when they have a bit of color on them! In the summer it’s especially important to give off a sun kissed look. Not only will it make you feel more confident in your short shorts, you’ll be the envy of everyone around you. There are plenty of healthy ways to get some color on your legs. You can use a self-tanning lotion at home. If you follow the instructions on your lotion precisely you’ll be sure to get a great tan without any streaks. If you are planning on getting your tan by spending some time in the sun, make sure to be carefully and apply your sunscreen liberally!
