You might have heard about exfoliating only in the context of your face, and how it will get rid of the dead skin cells and let your skin breathe again. This is completely true, but exfoliating does a lot more than that. On one hand, it will get rid of any dead skin cells and leave your legs looking a lot smoother. But it does another very important thing: it improves circulation. Whether you’ve got an exfoliating sponge, a dry skin brush or a massage tool, stimulating your skin will increase the blood flow and help decrease the amount of visible cellulite on your skin. It will also prime your skin for any products you might want to apply to make it even smoother. However, you want to be careful if you have a tan because exfoliation might take off that tanned top…

Achieve the Perfect Legs With These Tips

1.     Exfoliate, exfoliate, exfoliate!

You might have heard about exfoliating only in the context of your face, and how it will get rid of the dead skin cells and let your skin breathe again. This is completely true, but exfoliating does a lot more than that. On one hand, it will get rid of any dead skin cells and leave your legs looking a lot smoother. But it does another very important thing: it improves circulation.

Whether you’ve got an exfoliating sponge, a dry skin brush or a massage tool, stimulating your skin will increase the blood flow and help decrease the amount of visible cellulite on your skin. It will also prime your skin for any products you might want to apply to make it even smoother. However, you want to be careful if you have a tan because exfoliation might take off that tanned top layer and leave you with a patchy tan.

2.     Exercise

Simple Tips to Get the Perfect LegsWe all know that the shape of our body depends mostly on how often we move it. But the exercises you should do depend mostly on what you consider to be the perfect legs. If you want to have strong, thick, muscular legs, then you’ll get the best results by utilizing some good gym equipment. Hop on a stationary bike, do some leg presses and generally develop some muscles in those legs. If you want to make sure your butt looks as good as your legs, then start squatting (but make sure you’re doing it right so you don’t hurt your spine!).

On the other hand, if you want thin, lean, oblique legs, then you want something that will create lean muscles. The two best things for this are jogging and yoga, both of which help give definition and shape to your body without building up too much muscle. If you want something in between, then a high-intensity sport like soccer might be the best fit for you.

3.     Moisturize

Every time you take a shower, do not forget to moisturize your legs with a hydrating body milk or butter. Let that soak in for a little while before putting on your clothes to make sure it sinks into your skin, and not your jeans. You want to do this after taking a shower, because hot water and steam open up pores and allow for better absorption, giving you extra smooth legs.

4.     Hair removal

Simple Tips to Get the Perfect LegsIf you prefer to remove the hair from your legs, you want to make sure you are doing it in a way that irritates your skin the least, because seeing little shaving bumps isn’t exactly glamorous. Laser hair removal is the best way to go if you want smooth and silky results, but make sure not to over-expose your legs on the day of the treatment.

5.     Pick the right outfit

The way our body looks depends so much on what we wear that choosing the right outfit is basically more important than any of the previous steps. You want to make sure your hemline hits you at the right spot: ankle, knee or half-thigh, as any other length might make you look shorter or like your clothes are ill-fitting. You also want to choose the right shoes: high heels will elongate your legs, but if you’re wobbly when you walk, it’s not worth it. In that case, choose a full platform heel or go with long flats.

Everyone has their own definition of the perfect legs, and you need to remember that we’re all working with what we’ve got, so don’t be too hard on yourself. Make sure that all of the things you’re doing is out of self-care and you’ll be strutting with confidence in no time.
