Summer equals shorts, skirts, bathing suits, and basically less clothing in general. This doesn’t mean that you have to wear skimpy clothing, not at all, but it’s still hot out and you still aren’t going to want to wear jeans. It can be intimidating after hiding our legs all winter to all of a sudden bust out the shorts, so I’ve got a few pointers today to help you get the confidence you need to rock them.
Tips for Sexy Summer Legs
I know this isn’t an over night fix, but I can’t share all my other tips without at least a nod to fitness. Because none of the other tips will mean anything if you don’t take care of yourself inside & out. Eat healthy, drink lots of water and get moving! It doesn’t have to be hard-core fitness, I’m a huge advocate of finding a way to make fitness activities work for you. I love to play volleyball, so that’s my activity of choice. Do you love pickle ball? Going for a walk or run? What about tennis? Choose something and be active, your legs will thank me later. 🙂
Get a tan
Have you ever heard the phrase “if you can’t tone it, tan it”? Well, it’s pretty accurate! While you are working on your fitness, tan those babies up! You don’t have to sit in the sun (but if you do, make sure you wear sunscreen!), try a fake tan, a spray tan or even leg makeup (sounds crazy, but works amazingly). When your legs look a little bronzed, they look longer, leaner & sexier!
I think that it’s no secret that wearing heels elongates your legs and accentuates the toned muscle giving you nice, sculpted legs! I am already pretty tall, so I don’t follow this rule unless I’m with my husband who I can never be taller than (I’m 6′ and he is 6’7″) but for those average sized people, I honestly don’t know why you would wear anything else. Not just because they make your legs look great, but they’re cute and fun!
Get a nice close shave
You can do all of the above but if you have hairy legs or even legs with a bunch of pricks and cuts, it’s not a good look. I use Pure Silk Shave Cream for not only a really close shave, but it’s moisturizing as well, so it doesn’t leave your legs dry after a shave. It prevents nicks & cuts and gives you such a nicer shave than just soap or water.
If you don’t believe me, try it yourself! For a limited time only, grab the coupon on 7/10 to get Pure Silk Shave Cream at CVS! Use $.50 off 1 coupon on RedPlum and $1.00 off 1 CVS mobile app And you’ve got yourself a $1.50 can! No CVS near you, no problem. It can also be found at Walgreens for $1.39 and use a $.50 off 1 item coupon from RepLum and you’ve got yourself a $.89 can! You’ve gotta grab these before 7/10, so if you’re wondering if I really mean it, there is no harm done is trying the product yourself for a nice, close, sexy shave for your beautiful legs this summer!
So what do you think of my list? What would you add? Are you embracing shorts season?
