How to get Smooth Summer Legs

My husband and I are heading out for a weekend staycation at local luxury hotel in a couple of weeks for our anniversary. While the notion of lounging on the beach with no babies is extremely exciting, the idea of actually breaking out a bathing suit has me a little uneasy. Luckily, I was picked to try out the Skintimate® Skin Therapy Sensitive Skin, Schick Hydro Silk Sensitive Care® razor, and Hawaiian Tropic® Sheer Touch Ultra Radiance SPF 30. Living in Florida, I always have to have legs that are ready to be seen. Just to be safe., I did a ton of research on how to get the best smooth summer legs. If you want to get smooth summer legs, a little prep-work is required. Here’s how to do it.


Wet your legs before shaving. Shaving at the end of shower gives your hair time to soften.

Use warm water when shaving. Avoid too hot or too cold water that causes goose bumps.

Exfoliate your legs. I like using sugar and coconut oil mixture. Your best bet is exfoliating two to three times a week with a gentle scrub.How to get Smooth Summer Legs #shop_-2

Apply shaving gel. Apply shaving gel all over your legs to help prevent nicks and scrapes. Gels create a moisturizing lather and helps you keep track of where you still need to shave. We like the Skintimate® Skin Therapy Sensitive Skin.

Choose a quality razor. Shave from the ankles up with a light. Also, do not forget the backs of your knees and your toes. I use the Schick Hydro Silk Sensitive Care® razor, which is dermatologist-tested, contains hypoallergenic moisturizing serum infused with shea butter that hydrates and protects your sensitive skin against irritation, and 5 curve-sensing blades with unique skin guards designed to handle even your most sensitive areas, including underarms and bikini. Make sure to take your time to avoid cutting yourself.

Finish with SPF lotion. After shaving, be sure to moisturize to keep legs smooth and give them a healthy summer sheen. We like Hawaiian Tropic® Sheer Touch Ultra Radiance SPF 30. Legs can get very dry. To keep them soft, you should moisturize twice a day, especially right after showering, when the skin is most absorbent. If you are going to soak up any sun this summer, you should protect and pamper your legs against UVA and UVB rays. Hawaiian Tropic® Sheer Touch Ultra Radiance SPF 30 is water-resistant for a little splish splash this summer.

  1. My legs are still so dry from this long and bitterly cold winter, I need to give them a little TLC and get them summer-ready!!

  2. I assume these are excellent tips. I’ll have to have my girlfriend read this. She’s always complaining about her legs. Now, if you could post something about making my beard even more awesome…

  3. I love that there are SPF lotions now! Seriously I’ve been adding sunscreen to my lotions for years and it’s always a mess and unevenly spread. Now I don’t have to worry! I get protection and lotion all in one! I will have to pick some up before we head out on vacation next week!

  4. We live in Florida, too, so my legs are mostly summer ready! Looks like you had a lot of fun at the beach! 🙂 #client
