GET READY TO SHOW THE WORLD YOUR LEGS
To minimize blemishes, use a loofah pad to exfoliate and buff out the imperfections. By gently exfoliating at least once or twice a week, your legs can be healthy, soft and blemish-free with very little effort.
Try a vitamin-rich body scrub. While exfoliating with the loofah pad provides a great scrubbing motion, indulging in a luxurious body scrub is as good for the senses and the spirit as it is for the body.
Shine adds a whole new dimension to smooth legs. A fragrant lotion creates softness, and newly applied moisturizer creates a nice glow that draws attention to your silky legs. You can also buy lotions with added shimmer for a little extra radiance.
To restore moisture to dry skin, choose a heavier, oil-based moisturizer that contains urea or propylene glycol chemicals that help keep your skin moist. For very dry, cracked skin, oils are preferable. They have more staying power than creams do and are more effective at preventing water from evaporating from your skin.
Always apply moisturizers immediately after bathing. Pat or blot your skin until it’s just barely dry, then apply moisturizer immediately to help trap water in the surface cells.
