Perfect Legs For Summer

Perfect Legs For Summer

Before the Summer arrives, we want to make sure that our skin and bodies are looking their best and healthiest; ready for the arrival of dresses, skirts and bikinis. This is especially true when it comes to our legs. We want them to look toned, tanned and super soft, and be prepared for that British Summer sun at a moment’s notice. Even if you are heading abroad during the next few months, you still want your legs to look beach-ready before you even get there.

We have put together our top tips, which are guaranteed to get those pins in perfect condition, and a selection of our favourite products to give you superbly soft and glowing skin.

Top Tips For Perfect Legs

When you imagine what your perfect legs would look like, it would probably be bronzed, beautiful and supple. To achieve this, many turn to fake tan to help achieve that golden glow, but it is important to make sure your legs are getting the nourishment and hydration they need to stay soft and looking healthy.

    Keep Your Legs Hydrated

    No matter the time of year, our skin needs constant nourishment and protection. Before you even think about applying that fake tan, make sure you hydrate the skin on your legs. This will keep them soft, supple and looking insanely healthy. We absolutely love the Aurelia Firm and Revitalise Dry Body Oil, which glides like water over the skin, but leaves it super soft, glowing and gorgouesly fragranced.

    Don't Forget Your Thighs

    While many of us ensure our lower legs look incredible, we can often forget to make sure that our thighs look just as good. But trust us, when it comes to bikini weather, you will want the whole package to look amazing. The Bliss Slimulator stimulates the skin on your thighs and legs to encourage circulation, banish cellulite and make your legs look super smooth and soft.

    Don't Mask Imperfections

    If the skin on your legs has minor imperfections, scars or bruising, then don’t just mask them. It is important to target the problem, so when the tan fades, your legs will still look incredible and radiant. We love the This Works Perfect Legs Skin Miracle, which contains a blend of Vitamins C and E, along with Arnica, to help improve skin tone and reduce afflictions.

    Embrace A Light Glow

    Don’t just head straight for that bottle of fake tan when you want to achieve that gorgeous bronzed glow. Instead, use a hydrating shimmer body oil to give your skin a hint of radiance and tan, without looking too heavy. This is especially great if you are fair skinned. We love the Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Or, which when rubbed into skin, gives the most beautiful golden glow we have ever seen.

    Illuminate And Highlight

    Just like you contour and highlight your cheekbones to give the illusion of radiance and lift, you can also do the same to your legs to give a similar effect. This Works has released the brand new Perfect Legs Sculpt and Shine, which gives a light golden glow to blend into your skin and leave you with gorgeous looking legs. Enriched with Hyaluronic Acid for hydration, Aloe Vera to soothe and Natural Caramel to add a golden glow; this is the one product we are not forgetting to pack this Summer.

    Don't Forget To Exfoliate

    Covering up dry skin with lotions and potions won’t combat the problem, so you need to make sure you regularly exfoliate to ensure  you have super soft and smooth skin. We love the Legology Exo-Lite Stimulating Leg Scrub, which has been formulated with Sea Salt and Pink Himalayan Salt Crystals to encourage lymphatic drainage and banish scaly skin. The result? Beach-worthy legs before you even head on holiday.

    Borrow From The Boys

    While you may think that boys products can be too harsh for your skin, the Jack Black range is actually super gentle, works brilliantly, and means you won’ have to buy your own shaving foam. The Beard Lube Conditioning Shave helps to prevent cuts, which is brilliant for the Summer months when you have your legs on show, and is enriched with Essential Fatty Acids to keep your skin hydrated.

I am a big believer in the idea that beautiful Make Up begins with a superb skincare regime. I like to enhance my natural beauty rather than cover up and I am always on the lookout for great products which really work. When I am not writing about all things beauty, I like to do Yoga and I make an amazing brownie. It is all about balance!
