Summer is at the door. Are your legs ready for all those lovely shorts and mini skirts?
If not, don’t worry.
You will be ready in a sec with our tips.
You all must be worried when first time wearing shorts after a long period of cold weather. Your legs just seem so white and unattractive.
But, you have to do it once. And before you do, you just need to give your legs a quick pre-summer treatment.
Prepare your legs for summer in 4 steps:
1. Exfoliate your legs
Before you start taking off the hair from you legs, you should exfoliate them.
This way you will get rid of the dead skin and make shaving or waxing more efficient. You will also get rid of ingrown hairs. And that can be a serious problem.
You legs will also be more beautiful and your skin will glow.
DIY Skin Exfoliator:
½ cup of Sugar
¼ cup of Olive Oil (or coconut or any other you prefer)
Mix the ingredients above. You can also add a few drops of essential oil(this is optional).
When in a shower, use the scrub and gently massage your legs in circular motions. After just rinse your body with water.
2. Get rid of hair
This is the most important step you need to take(if you haven’t done it already).
There are a few ways to do that. The best solution is waxing, but if you didn’t do that, there is always a razor.
It may not be the best solution, but when it’s urgent. Then, it is a great solution.
And to make shaving easier and more efficient, use a shaving cream. And the best shaving cream is the home made one.
DIY Shaving Cream:
¼ cup of Aloe Vera(or conditioner if you do not have aloe vera)
¼ cup of Coconut Oil
Five drops of Peppermint or Lavender essential oil
Melt the coconut oil and mix with other ingredients. Store it in the plastic container and use when needed.
Apply a thin layer on your skin and leave it to rest for a couple of minutes before you start shaving your legs.
Aloe will soften your skin; coconut oil will moisturize it.
3. Moisturize your legs
Your legs need hydration. Dry and cracked skin is a no-no!
You can use moisturizer you have.
4. Get some tan
There are a few ways to do that!
And the best way is to do it naturally, under the actual sun!
But if you are not patient, there are others way to get some tan.
Tanning creams or tanning salons.
