The first day of Summer is June 21st, are your legs ready? Because mine are nowhere near close. Luckily I’ve got a bit of help for all of us, in the form of 3 super easy steps to make sure that your summer legs are gorgeous and ready for whatever summer may throw at you.
I am notorious with forgetting about my legs, and then shaving in a fit of fury right before we run out the door to a pool party. Sometimes I don’t even get a chance, and I sit on the edge of the pool and don’t even dare bare my legs out from under my maxi dress. I am vowing this summer to not be that girl, because I want to enjoy as much of that cool, sparkling pool as I can! We’ve got all sorts of fun summer events lined up already, so I need to make sure I am ready to go at the drop of a hat. Using the 3 guidelines below, we can all make sure our legs are summer ready!
Get your legs ready by exfoliating them with a simple homemade sugar scrub. Exfoliating helps get rid of excess dead skin, allowing for a closer shave, and lessening the chance for ingrown hairs and razor burn. Make sure to use a moisturizing shave cream, like Skintimate® Skin Therapy Sensitive Skin, on wet skin (it allows the hair to soften, making it easier to remove!).
Use a high quality razor, with at least 4 blades for the closest shave possible, like Schick Hydro Silk® Sensitive Care®. Make sure to take care of your blades, letting them dry in between uses to keep them sharper, longer. Using light pressure, shaving against the growth of your hair, will give you the closest shave possible, but on sensitive areas, shave with the growth to prevent ingrown hairs and razor burn.
After you’ve shaved, make sure to protect your skin with moisturizing lotion! When out in the sun, always use sunscreen, and remembering to reapply if you will be in the pool or ocean, as the water can wash off even waterproof sunscreen after time. Don’t forget about after sun care! Apply an after sun lotion like Hawaiian Tropic® Lime Coolada After Sun Moisturizer, for a burst of replenishing hydration after a long day in the sun.
Head over to your local Walmart and grab some of these products! Make sure to pack them in your summer bag before heading out to the pool, and grab a great book to read while getting some warm sun rays! Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn is a fantastic summer read. Don’t forget the sunscreen and self tanner too!
