I've teamed up with Vaseline to write a couple of posts on getting your legs ready for the hot weather and today's post will be on my tips and tricks to achieve perfectly smooth and soft skin for your legs so that they are worthy of any Summer dress.
WAXING - The first step to achieving super soft legs is always hair removal, I've never been a fan of shaving as my legs are quite sensitive and I hate how quickly the hairs grow back so these days I opt for waxing using an at home wax kit most of the time.
EXFOLIATING: Removal of dead skin cells and patchy fake tan is also key to having great looking legs and for that I use St. Ives Apricot Scrub and this body polishing sponge which works absolute wonders. If you don't already have one of these sponges you most certainly need to check them out, this one is by Velvotan and costs a mere £1.99, available here.
MOISTURISING: I have really dry skin on my legs down to the days when I shave them so a good moisturiser is always a must have in my routine, I can't stand having to spend ages with application so hate using thick creams. This moisturiser by Vaseline is a lightweight lotion and literally sinks into the skin instantly and feels lovely on the skin, it includes oat extract too.
TONING: The final step in ensuring my legs are ready to show off in Summer shorts is toning up my thighs using this cellulite-scrubber by Bliss whilst in the shower. It's super easy to use, you just scrub over your thighs for a couple of minutes (whilst using shower gel) and it works to drain excess fluid and eliminate cellulite, in my opinion it really works and I can always feel my thighs are more toned after a few weeks. Another favourite of mine is the Rodial Crash Diet Gel which I apply at night before bed and find it slims down my thighs with regular use.
