Is there anything worse than dry, itchy legs? It’s the worst! But, don’t despair, throw your hands up in defeat, and cover those neglected gams with pants for the rest of your life. I’m going to share with you how I get the softest smoothest legs ever!
I think it’s time to love the skin you’re in.Unknown
My Former Life…
In the fall of 2001 I completed the Esthiology Science program from The Aveda Institute in Minneapolis, MN. I embarked into the skincare world at the tender age of 19; and, spent the next 16 years of my life working in spas and building my own organic skincare line. I loved it.
These days my love of skin is more of a hobby than a profession. However helping someone love the skin they are in continues to be a passion of mine and I still have my Etsy Shop, Raychel Ann Beauty.
And soft smooth skin is a goal. I want my legs to look amazing even in my twilight years. Eat your heart out Tina Turner.
Here’s how to get the smoothest legs ever:
#1- Drink More Water
I don’t know if you know this but dry itchy skin is a sign your skin is not getting enough moisture. You can slather lotion on those scratchy legs until the cows come home but you will get no where if you don’t drink enough water. You must solve this problem from the inside out. Hydrated skin is plump and soft and ages beautifully.
Exfoliate often if you want the softest smoothest legs possible. I like to exfoliate 3 times a week! Especially when the seasons change and I tend to be more dry. Exfoliating removes the dead skin cells that are acting as a barrier and preventing anything from penetrating your skin.
You can layer and layer creams and lotions in hopes of finding relief, but it will do nothing but drain your pocket book if you don’t exfoliate.
#3- Use Harry’s Razors for the smoothest legs ever.
Yes they are men’s razors. It doesn’t matter. Use them. They are amazing. Like my fiancé says… Why use a more expensive women’s razor when you can use a cheaper men’s razor that works better?
#4- Body Oil
I traded my traditional lotion for a body oil way before body oils were cool. They hydrate the skin beautifully and mimic the natural oils in our skin better than creams and lotions. My favorite blends use one or more of these base oils: Avocado oil, grape seed oil, almond oil, jojoba oil, and coconut oil. I dare you to toss that lotion and splurge on a body oil that soothes your skin and your senses. Here is the first body oil I ever fell in love with: Beautifying Composition Oil
Soft smooth legs are within your reach! A few tweaks to your skincare regimen and you will have glowing gams in no time!
