Your legs have been hiding under jeans all winter and, chances are, they’re in need of some serious TLC (not to mention a great razor). Before you step into a mini or a pair of shorts, take a peek at these expert tips on how to get softer, sexier, smoother legs for summer.
1. Dry Brush 3 Times Per Week
“Starting at your feet and moving upwards, dry brush with a natural bristle brush,” recommends esthetician and founder of BijaBody health+beauty, Melissa Picoli. “This does so many things for leg gorgeousness! It improves circulation, which minimizes varicose veins and cellulite, exfoliates dead skin, supports collagen health, and prepares legs for smoother shaving.”
2. Use a Thick Shaving Cream or Gel
This will give you a much better shave than soap does, and will also form a track as you go so you don’t miss a spot, says beauty expert and author of Bonding Over Beauty, Erika Katz. For a smoother shave, mix shower gel in the palm of your hand before you apply, she adds.
3. Buy a Razor with Changeable Blades
“Use a razor with changeable blades, a pivoting head, and a handle that is easy to grip, even with soapy hands,” says Erika. This makes it easier to get to those hard-to-reach areas.
4. Don’t Scrub Freshly Shaved Legs
After showering and shaving, do not scrub legs—pat them dry, while you’re still in the shower, and immediately massage in an oil or a heavy moisturizer, advises Stephanie Rest, Spa Manager at the Regent Spa at the Regent Palms Turks and Caicos.
