Tips for Getting Smooth Legs in Time for Summer

The hot summer months bring your capris, shorts, and skirts out of hibernation, which means your legs will be on full display. Now is the time to consider how you can get your gams in silky-smooth, tip-top shape. Follow along for some great tips on how you can get smooth legs in no time at all.

Exfoliate

Just like your face, the skin on your legs needs a good sloughing every once in a while. Exfoliation gently scrubs the dead skin cells off of the surface of the skin, revealing the smooth, shiny (and short-worthy!) skin underneath. For the legs, any old scrub will do, though my favorite is undoubtedly Molton Brown's Ambrusca Wash & Scrub. It works to exfoliate and moisturize—and it smells amazing, too.

Shave

Once you’ve exfoliated, it’s time to work on removing any unwanted hair from the legs. For that, go ahead and grab your trusty Gillette Venus Razor, and combine it with the silky, moisturizing power of Gillette's Satin Care Shave Gel with a touch of Olay. Both go a long way toward getting rid of unsightly stubble. When shaving, be sure to work up a good lather with the shave gel before shaving the legs in short strokes. Move the razor in the same direction as your hair’s growth to prevent ingrown hairs.

Moisturize

Last but not least, it is important to always keep your legs moisturized, so that the skin stays smooth and supple for a longer period of time. Grab your favorite body lotion and massage it into the skin using circular motions. If you want a little something special, Perfekt makes a great bronzing body gel that not only makes legs look more flawless, but also imparts the slightest of bronze, sparkly glows to any spot it touches.

Use these easy-to-follow tips to get legs that are silky smooth and summer ready. Dust off those shorts and miniskirts, today!

@IrisMain Great question, Iris! That is because the shorter strokes ensure that you don't skip a spot. Also, it helps you keep the pressue you put on the razor even. This comment has been removed.
