Natural Tips for Smooth and Beautiful Legs
Start using these tips to get those beautiful legs that will have you sashaying. We’ve even listed some exercises to tone up too.
Make sure you exfoliate your legs with a scrub before you go for a wax or a shave. Exfoliating will help remove dead cells and open up pores. This will remove any unwanted stubble and in-growths while you wax. It also leaves your skin feeling smooth and silky.
Shaving does not remove hair from the root while waxing does. Shaving can increase in-growths and roughness. Repeated waxing helps reduce the intensity of hair growth while shaving actually causes an unsightly stubble while hair grows back. Stick to waxing to keep your legs looking smooth and clean. However, if you are suffering from a major in-growth problem, try using a pumice stone to cleanse your skin before waxing.
Try an easy DIY pedicure at home for yourself once or twice a month at least. Start with a herbal oil massage for your legs right down to your feet. Leave in the oil to soak for about half an hour. Follow this up with a foot bath. Take a bucket with nice warm water, add in some bath salts and a few drops of your fave essential oil. Immerse your legs in the water for another half hour. Clean your legs after this with a scrubber. Wash off while taking a bath.
Moisturize your legs daily to keep your skin from looking flaky, dry and scaly. It will leave your skin glowing and healthy. Moisturizing also helps keep your skin hydrated. If you have extremely dry skin, then you should consider moisturizing your skin twice a day, once in the morning and once before you go to sleep. This gives your skin enough time to absorb the moisturizer and re-hydrate while you sleep. If you suffer from cracked heels, ensure you use an intensive moisturizing butter at least 2-3 times a day to heal the cracks.
