It’s safe to say that here in the U.K., summer has well and truly arrived, which means long days spent having fun in the sun. More flesh will be on show, and legs are bared when everyone swaps their winter trousers for summery shorts and skirts, so looking after your legs will give you the confidence you need to bare them with pride! We’ve got five products which can help:
Dry brushing is an excellent way to remove dead skin and revive dull looking legs. This brush from Elemis is made from natural cactus bristles and regular use can even help to reduce the appearance of cellulite, so you know your pins will be looking great when you slip into your shorts.
It’s quite common for brands to use glycolic acid to resurface the face, but Jan Marini has included it in their body scrub so that your whole body can be refreshed and renewed. It offers superb retexturising for all skin types with glycolic acid and polished granules for smoother, softer skin and will immediately reduce rough calloused skin, repairing as it goes with moisturising and soothing botanical extracts and a natural fragrance.
Summer fun can mean spending a lot of time on your feet, leaving your muscles feeling achy and tired. This gel contains soothing extracts of arnica, birch and witch hazel, with cooling camphor and menthol, which combine to cool and soothe fatigued legs and feet. It relieves stress from tense muscles and knots and can be used when pregnant for swollen legs and upper back.
Heavy legs after a long day can be a horrible feeling, but this gel from Decleor can help to fix that. It energises and revives tired legs, helping to reduce the unpleasant effect of heavy legs, leaving them feeling instantly relieved and refreshed.
Keeping your legs in good shape can be hard work, and if you’re putting in hours at the gym doing squats and deadlifts then there’s a good chance that your legs will be suffering afterwards, and there’s nothing like self-massage for getting your muscles feeling better. This oil contains maritime pine, sea buckthorn, sea fennel extracts and rosemary essential oil and can be used under Instant Refreshing Gel for heavy, tired legs and aching neck and shoulders.
