Pamper Night: How to Get Super Smooth Legs

Having smooth and beautiful skin is any girl's dream. Those super model style legs are all we really want right? It may not solve all of our problems but it makes us feel a little bitter better when we have smooth legs. Beautiful legs are achievable. Just do these easy steps every week, and the tone and smoothness of your legs will improve drastically.




Dry Brushing

Dry brushing is a fairly new idea that a lot of people have added to their routine. Super model, Miranda Kerr, swears by this. Dry brushing exfoliates the skin, improves the look of cellulite, increases circulation, clears the pores, removes dry skin, tightens the skin, and helps with the complexion of the skin. A few times a week, use a natural bristle brush to exfoliate the skin in circular motions, towards the heart. I like to dry brush right before I take a shower. Make sure to clean your brush with baby shampoo regularly and replace it every few months so that it doesn't breed bacteria.

Exfoliate

Along with exfoliating with a dry brush, a scrub in the shower will speed up cell turnover. When you exfoliate skin, it removes the top layer of dead skin, revealing more of the hair. This way you can get a closer shave. Only exfoliate a few times a week, though, especially if you have sensitive skin.

Use Men's Razors

Men's razors can get a much closer shave than woman's razors because they are meant for the face. Try out a men's razor the next time you need to replace your blades. I find that they are so much better than women's razors.

Swap Conditioner for Shaving Cream

Shaving cream can really dry out your skin. Swap out your shaving cream for hair conditioner. It's so much more hydrating that shaving cream, and you can get a much closer shave. It is also much cheaper to but a conditioner for only a couple of dollars.

Cold Water

Take a cup of cold water with you in the shower, and dip your brush into it after each swipe of your legs. The cold water will make your hairs stand up straighter so that you can get a closer shave. It will leave your legs super smooth.

Body Butter

After you get out of the shower, use a body butter all over your body. It is much more moisturizing than a regular body lotion. I like to use a regular lotion every night except for days after I shave. These days I use a nice body butter for extra moisture.

Have a lovely day,
