Is it just me or does wearing a dress make you feel uncomfortable if your legs don’t look satiny smooth even if they are shaved? Dry, parched legs with strawberry skin can not only make you steer clear of wearing above-the-knee outfits but also cause a lot of itchiness and discomfort.
But DW, because we have the perfect solution to this problem. In this article, we are going to take you through four simple skincare tips for softer, smoother legs. Follow these tips religiously and we promise you, satiny-soft and sexy legs will be yours to flaunt throughout the year!
- 01. Use a body polish
- 02. Try dry brushing
- 03. Replace your razor regularly
- 04. Moisturise your legs every single day
01. Use a body polish
When it comes to achieving smooth legs, using a physical scrub such as a body polish really helps. Gently polishing your legs once a week will slough away dead skin cells and unclog pores to reveal softer and smoother legs. But be careful to not over-exfoliate as this can cause serious skin damage.
02. Try dry brushing
Another effective way to exfoliate your legs for a silky smooth feel is to try dry brushing the skin on your legs. This technique helps to exfoliate the skin and improve blood circulation. Dry brushing also helps in better absorption of your skincare products, which further makes your legs look even-toned and sexy. But as with any exfoliation method, it is really important to practice caution and limit dry brushing to once a week.
03. Replace your razor regularly
A common mistake that a lot of women make is to use the same razor for months on end. This not only deprives you of a pleasant shaving experience but ends up leaving you with strawberry legs. Replace your razor once a month to ensure a smoother shaving experience.
04. Moisturise your legs every single day
Skin that lacks moisture will always feel parched and will prevent your legs from looking soft and smooth. Not only is it essential to moisturise your legs post a hair removal treatment, but you must do so every single day. Apply a generous amount of body lotion right after a shower, while your skin is still damp. This will help lock-in moisture to give you softer, smoother legs.
