How-to: achieve luscious-looking legs
Not blessed with supermodel svelte legs? (Don’t worry, neither am I).
But does that mean we should hide our less-than-perfect legs in long skirts and pants 24/7? Absolutely not! The beauty of…erm…beauty is that it gives you the opportunity to cleverly disguise the imperfections that you don’t like, and accentuate the bits that you do. And the same goes for your legs – simply follow these tips and tricks for legs that look and feel luscious (even if you’re not Rosie Huntington-Whiteley):
1.) Scrub and smooth
Take the fast track to legs that look and feel super smooth by slathering up with an exfoliating body scrub a couple of times a week. Not only will it get rid of any scaly skin, but it will also help to minimise ingrown hairs and prep you for a better shave.
And since nicks, cuts and shaving rash are no-one’s friend in the plight to achieve great looking legs, it’s vital you use a good razor when de-fuzzing. We like the Gillette Venus ProSkin MoistureRich as it’s specially designed for the curves of a woman’s body, allowing you to get an ultra close shave with less irritation – even around tricky spots like your knees and ankles. Plus, the nourishing shave gel bars help to keep your skin hydrated and irritation free.
2.) Tone and tan
Sick of seeing cellulite every time you look at your legs? Invest in a cellulite reducing body cream like Elixia® BodyShaper Cellulite Contour Crème and incorporate it into your daily beauty routine. Over time it will help to break down bumps, bulges and dimples, making your skin appear smoother and more svelte. Teaming your toning cream with a good fake tan will not only give you a great faux glow, it will also help to disguise the ‘orange peel’ look and make your legs look instantly slimmer.
3.) Hydrate and illuminate
Keeping your legs moisturised will ensure they take on a natural, healthy sheen and that your skin tone remains even. If you then want to improve the shape of your legs, you simply need to apply a bit of illuminating cream down your shins and you’ll instantly create the illusion of longer, more toned legs. Try using a body cream with a slight shimmer in it, or simply use your face illuminator.
