As girls, we all know the best feeling in the world is to have smooth legs. But, for some reason having super smooth legs can prove quite difficult. A crappy razor, not exfoliating or not moisturising can all lead to dry and stubbly feeling legs. So, I thought I'd put together my top tips to get ultra smooth legs.
1. Don't dry shave
Make sure your legs are wet from the shower or bath, preferably after about 5 minutes of soaking them in water. This way it'll give you open pores, which will give you a nicer, closer shave. Don't ever dry shave! Trust me, it's painful af.
Exfoliating before you shave is so, so important. It'll remove all the dead cells from your legs and even reduces the likelihood of getting ingrown hairs! I personally like using a loofah and my Soap&Glory body wash to exfoliate. But you can also just use a body scrub!
3. Use Shaving Cream or Shower Gel
When you're in the shower or bath, the best thing to use before shaving is shaving cream. However, I don't bother and just use shower gel, or body wash, which I find works equally as well.
4. Use a decent razor
This is probably the most important step. Using a cheap razor, is only going to give you dry, cut legs which will still feel stubbly. You need to invest in a decent razor. My favourite are the Friction Free Shaving razors, they literally make my legs so bloody smooth. I haven't had one single cut whilst using them, and my legs have never been smoother. In particular I like the Samantha* razor, as it has 5 blades per head. With this subscription you get 4 refills per month, all from £3 a month. How cheap is that? The best part is that it is delivered straight to your door.
After shaving, I like to stick a load of body butter or moisturiser all over my legs. I don't have a particular favourite, though at the moment I'm loving the Garnier Body Ultimate Blends Soothing Hydration Lotion*, it makes my legs so silky and it smells oh so good.
