We’ve all been there, we jump in the shower or throw our legs over the tub ledge and start shaving away. When we’re done we slather on some lotion only to notice that we still feel some stubble or bumps left behind. In an effort to help you get ready for those “leg showing days” of the future I thought I’d share a tip or two on how to get legs so smooth they feel like glass.
We all know to wash our faces, exfoliate & follow with a moisturizer to keep our complexion looking its best. There might even be some a night mask every now and then to make sure we’ve removed all dead skin cells or blemishes that may stand in the way of beautiful radiant skin. When it comes to your legs, it’s time we start thinking the same way. First things first, shave your legs at the END of your shower. Doing so, will give the steam from your shower a chance to soften the hair follicles which makes them loosen up the hold they have on your hairs. Next, invest in a body exfoliate. These grainy little wonders scrub and gently slough off the dead skin cells, forgotten lotions and anything else that might cause resistance in removing all the hair.
Once you’re all scrubbed up (go ahead and use that scrub on your feet too btw, it helps to get rid of dead skin cells and you’ll emerge with soft supple feet), rinse your legs off and reach for your shave gel. Glide the gel all over your legs and rinse your hands (slippery hands mean the razor can slip and that can lead to a nasty knick so just rinse). Grab your razor and shave against the growth of the hair. Going against the growth instead of with the growth gives you a closer shave.
When you’re all done, pat your legs dry and reach for the body butter. I know there are plenty of lotions out there but in my opinion, body butter is where it’s at for locking in moisture ALL DAY LONG and helping with that smooth feeling. Honestly, my all-time favorite (aside from shea butter direct from the plant) is Clinique’s body butter.
There you have it ladies, the smoothest legs you could ever ask for. Now just top those stems w/ R.C.K (Red Carpet Kolour) and you’ll have the most amazing legs you never knew you already had.
