Now that summer is finally here, with that comes getting a pedicure 2 to 4 times a month and exfoliating my legs more often. Since I've been asked if I exercise or dance several times because of how defined my legs look, I decided to share my tips on how do I get my legs ready when I wear dresses or skirts.
Now to the good part... listed below are the products I use, however, there are budget friendly alternatives out there that might work for you if you can't afford these. If I'm going to be wearing skirts or dresses, I shave every other day.
Once in the shower...
- Scrub: I use Soap & Glory Flake Away Body Polish ($25) which can be found at Sephora. I only use this item before shaving my legs since after it will sting.
- Shaving: I use Gillette Foamy Shaving Cream ($4) with Gillette Mach 3 ($10-$25) which can be found in most drug stores and supermarkets. I have used other shaving creams and shavers, but they do not work as good as these for me.
- Once out of the shower, I apply the Beach Sexy Tan Enhance Shimmer Lotion with Tint on my legs which was discontinued at Victoria's Secret and now I use the Instant Bronzing Tinted Shimmer Lotion since it is the same for me. I use this product every time I shave which is every other day if I know I'm going to be wearing dresses or skirts.
On the days when I'm not wearing dresses or skirts, I just use unscented lotion for dry skin or jojoba oil on my legs. I have tried so many lotions since I have extra dry skin, and the only one that have worked is Dermasil which it was one of those dollar discoveries. My first thought was that since it is cheap it wasn't going to work, but to my surprise it did and I'm happy with it.
If you use any other products to get "summer" ready legs, share them below, I would love to try something new and see if it gives me the same results. Until then, keep those legs looking fabulous!
