I’m having such a hairy leg season. Every time I shave, I feel prickly again. It is so obnoxious. I guess it’s the warm weather, but frankly I’m disturbed by this. Anyway, my shower and getting ready process is taking longer because I want to make sure to even out every inch of my legs. As you know, when it comes to seasonal beauty fixes, there is always need for a beauty routine that will help solve the problem. In this case, this 3-step routine creates smoother skin, making the hair growth seem softer and less intrusive.

In order to show off your legs without feeling self-conscious, you can’t just rely on self tanners. First, you want to make sure your legs get proper exfoliation in the summer. The skin tends to get uneven and hair just loves to grow faster during such a non-convenient time! My favorite leg exfoliant is Sally Hansen Exfoliating Leg Polisher. This remarkable product gets rid of dry, flakey, uneven skin by moisturizing legs and polishing everything out evenly. That’s not all. It also contains Vitamins A, C, and E which is what helps exfoliate dead skin cells while simultaneously stimulating new cell growth. Retinol and Vitamin K are also present. The Retinol helps strengthen and tone skin elasticity, while Vitamin K aids in fading spider veins and other scars.

After regaining leg confidence and having even skin, it’s time for a great shimmer moisturizer. Shimmering moisturizer helps enhance the legs and give them the definition they deserve after getting properly exfoliated. The subtle light reflection from using Jergens Soft Shimmer Skin Radiance Moisturizer creates radiant legs ready to be shown off. So, now you have smooth, even toned legs that are defined and sexy-ed up by shimmer. Even if the little hairy pricks want to come out, the combination of the Sally Hansen exfoliant and the Jergens lotion keeps them from making a grand and noticeable appearance

For the last touch, the icing on the cake, I recommend using Biosilk Silk Therapy. I love how you can use this product on your hair and all over your body for a silky, shiny, soft finish. After the Jergens shimmer moisturizer dries, take a teaspoon-sized amount of Biosilk and rub it onto your legs. The results will be impeccable. After this 3-step process the legs will be ready for a grand entry. Speaking of which, I need to get my legs ready for their big date night out!
