If there's one thing that I'm not a fan off when it comes to summer it's making sure that my legs are always prepared for when I want to whip on a pair of shorts or a skirt. It's hard to get back into that routine when your legs have been hibernating for so long. So I thought I'd put down in writing my routine for getting smooth summer ready pins to make sure I stay on track!
The first step that you HAVE to take to get the smoothest legs possible is to exfoliate. It's the step that most people miss but it's one of the most important. I always try to have a tub of some kind of scrub in the cupboard (normally from my collection that's built up at Christmas!). My favourites are always from Soap and Glory though and I'm currently using 'Flake Away'. Just massage the scrub into your legs in a circular motion, paying close attention to the knees and ankles. And if I don't have a scrub in the cupboard there's always a handy shower puff!
I like to go for the quick and easy option when it comes to hair removal and as much as people say that the likes of waxing or epilating has longer lasting results...I'm still not ready to put my shaver down just yet. I always opt for a Gillette razor and because I like to change my razor often I use the Venus Oceana Disposable Razors with a shaving gel. One more tip: always go for a shaving gel rather than just use shower gel - it locks the moisture in your legs to prevent any dry patches. And that post shave feeling is just mmmmmmm.
Last but not least it's moisturising time. Now I don't know about you but when I get out of the shower moisturising my legs is such a chore. You have to wait forever for it to soak into your legs before you can even think about trying to put on some skinny jeans! But then I found the Vaseline Spray and Go moisturisers and now I use them all the time. They make the whole process so much quicker and it's so lightweight that it dries in no time.
