In the summer, we bare it all, so it comes as no surprise that this is also the most important time of the year to make sure we’ve got a head-to-toe beauty routine going on. In being thorough, it’s especially important to make sure we’re not leaving the “toe” part out of the equation.
Your legs may do most of the footwork around here, but they deserve just as much treatment as you’d give to your face. Keeping them smooth, moisturized and stubble-free is one part of the recipe, but you can also take a few extra steps to make them look their very best.
Legs are especially prone to scarring, bruising and bug bites, so be gentle with them when you shave and avoid perfumed lotions (which tend to attract bugs). Religiously applying ointment to any cuts will help them go away without leaving a permanent mark, and you can always enlist the aid of a body concealer to cover up any bruises or blemishes.
If you’re interested in a bit of cosmetic power, Glamour.com recommends using a luminizing lotion with shimmer in it on the fronts and backs of your legs to create the illusion of slimmer gams.
