How to Get Smooth Legs: Tips and Tricks for Achieving Smooth, Sexy Legs
For the, longest I wondered how celebrities achieved smooth and sexy legs. After some trial and error, I believe I found the solution to picture-perfect legs.
Is having a leg a crush a thing? Well, I have a few the OG Tina Turner, Beyonce, Ciara, and more recently Carrie Underwood. Did you see her gams at the Grammy’s? Their legs appear to be muscular, even-toned, smooth, shiny, and well… flawless.
While celebrities obviously have access to high-end skincare treatments, achieving enviable sexy legs is within your reach. Read on for some beauty tips I learned on my quest to get smooth and sexy legs like my faves.
Leg Workout Routine
First, you have to start off with a solid canvas. Now I’m not about that running on a treadmill in stilletos life Beyonce Destiny’s Child days. It is important not to skip leg days. Try this workout routine to tone up your legs. I do this two to three times a week.
Bye-Bye Strawberry Legs|Exfoliate and Combat Ingrown Hairs
Exfoliating is a key component in getting the picture-perfect legs of your dreams.
It is important before removing hair to exfoliate to sloth off dead skin, prevent strawberry legs, and those pesky ingrown hairs. I go into depth about some exfoliators that actually work here.
Ayurveda Dry Brushing
I got into Ayurveda dry brushing after coming across a beautiful mature woman (Yazemeenah Rossi)on YouTube with the most well-preserved, elastic glowing skin. I dug a little deeper and found that dry brushing serves a purpose beyond exfoliation such as blood circulation, and lymph drainage.
Sugar Scrub & Exfoliating Gloves
One of the best products to use for smooth and clear legs is a sugar scrub like the one below. I live in Texas where the mosquitoes are vicious. The Tree Hut sugar scrubs have helped me reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation left behind from bites.
I like to use exfoliation gloves in my daily shower routine. Daily exfoliation not only keeps the legs smooth but the entire body.
We can’t have smooth and sexy legs if we have strawberry dots, and boils from ingrown hair parties. The best thing to do is to take preventative measures with products like Tend Skin, and Amlactin.
Unfortunately, sometimes our bodies have a mind of their own and we get ingrown hair anyway. A few washes with diluted Hibiclens will rid you of that problem.
Hair Removal Process
As mentioned in my post The Routine You Need for Beautiful Glowing Black Skin hair removal is essential. I sometimes use Nair, but that chemical smell can be off-putting. I prefer waxing because it gives you that nice smooth finish.I just got into sugaring, which is a little less painful. See my go-to DIY Sugaring recipe here
How to Get Even Skin Tone on Legs
Kojie San soap might be the absolute best product for legs. Initially, I didn’t like it because I felt it did nothing for my skin. Then I discovered I was using it incorrectly. Thank You Youtube University! The key is to leave it on the skin for two to three minutes then wash it off with a towel. This is perfect if you are aiming for even skin tone on your legs.
How to Make Your Legs Look Smooth and Shiny
Shhh! The smooth and shiny legs you envy could all be smoke and mirrors, a mere illusion. Get into body oils and leg makeup to get the appearance of flawless legs.
To make your legs look smooth and shiny opt for your favorite oils. My younger self would slather my entire body in Walmart brand baby oil and still do from time to time. For the days I’m feeling a little bourgeois I go for the options below.
Use makeup on your legs to get that flawless appearance. Sometimes dark marks are slow to disappear and leave you feeling self-conscious.
Finally, I am a huge proponent of “Fake it till You Make it.” I’ve lived enough life to realize that everything is not always what it appears to be. At our big age, we should not believe that celebrities are immune to blemishes, scratches, or scars. The Age of Social media has gifted us with photoshopping apps like Facetune so we can all live delusional lives of perfection. Maybe to achieve smooth and sexy legs we have to edit them until they become a reality with a good leg care routine.
