Do’s and Don’ts for Beautiful Legs

Posted November 5, 2013 by Paul M. Parker, M.D., FACS

Legs just don’t seem to get enough attention in the cooler winter months. It might have something to do with the fact that they’re so frequently covered up with pants or thick stockings. Whatever the reason, why not make a promise to spend a little “me time” on your legs this winter? Here are some tips to help you kick things off and get your legs in beautiful condition.

Do: Exercise

Just like most other parts of the body, your legs depend on getting regular exercise in order to look their best. The good news is that even simple exercises, such as daily walking, can help keep legs slim and sleek. If you’re looking for more dramatic results, try leg focused exercises such as squats, lunges and calf raises.

Don’t: Shave On Cold Skin

The steam from the shower will help make shaving easier, so hold off until the end before grabbing your razor.

Don’t: Trust Cheap Razors

Four-blade razors work the best. When combined with a quality shaving gel or cream, they’re the least likely to cause razor burn or other bumps keeping your legs’ appearance in top shape. do

Do: Exfoliate and Moisturize

A natural exfoliant, such as a sugar-based scrub, is a great way to get rid of dead skin cells and reveal a glowing, fresh layer of skin. Use a generous amount of the exfoliant and apply it in a small circular motion. You should rub firmly to make sure you get the best results. Be sure to follow up with a moisturizer, such as one that has Shea butter. You can also get a firming lotion to use on those special occasions when you want to put a temporary stop to loose skin.

These tips are easy things that can be worked into your daily routine seamlessly. By the time spring rolls around, you’ll be ready to show off your beautiful legs!
