Most of us would like a perfect pair of legs. Whilst some of us are blessed with more naturally beautiful thighs and calves than others, there are steps that we can all take to make our legs more luscious. Here are just few tips for achieving a killer pair of legs.

Kick your lazy habits

Whether your legs are too plump or too skinny, regular exercise will help to get them in shape. Most physical activities are good for the legs from running to cycling to swimming. There are then specific exercises such as squats and lunges that can help tone them up further. The key is spend less time lazing around on a sofa. That doesn’t mean you can’t get your fix of evening TV – you can still do many exercises in your living room (you could even buy an exercise bike or a treadmill). Walking/cycling more and using the car less can also help, whilst sites such as http://www.healthline.com have some great ‘deskercise’ workouts for those with sedentary office jobs.

Run a razor over those legs

Razors are still one of the healthiest ways to lose the leg hair. Hair removal creams may cause skin irritation, whilst waxing regularly causes ingrown hairs. Whilst using a razor-shaving has to be done more regularly, it’s the best option for your skin. Of course, a good razor will limit those nips and cuts and will result in a smoother shave. Comparison sites like http://www.bestproducts.com/ can help you find the best razor.

Stamp out cellulite

For many women, finding cellulite on their legs is a disaster. Fortunately, as sites such as http://www.cellulite.com/ prove, there are many ways to get rid of the orange peel look such as exercising, exfoliating and using special creams to reduce its appearance. A more drastic option is surgery, but this should only be for those with serious cellulite as such treatment can be costly.

Dash dry skin with moisturizer

Dry skin can occur for a variety of reasons. As we get older, our skin will naturally begin to dry out, as it stops producing as much ‘sebum’ – our skin’s natural moisturizing oil. Using a moisturizer as a substitute can help provide our skin with the oils it needs. Legs tend to get particularly dry on the knees and shins. You can never start moisturizing too early, as well as stopping your skin from being as dry it will delay wrinkles, leaving you with smoother legs for longer.

Tread carefully in the sun

Soaking up the sun can help achieve a sexy tan, but the UV rays won’t be doing any good for our legs in the long run. The sun is the leading cause of wrinkles, particularly when we let our skin burn. Putting on sun lotion can prevent burning, whilst after-sun can limit the damaging effect of sunburn. Another way of achieving those bronzed legs could of course be to slap on some fake tan. Yes, it’s not as cool as the real thing, but it’s far healthier for the skin.

My family has belonged to Montgomery Country Club in Laytonsville since I was in kindergarten. Most summers growing up, I was there 12 hours a day, 7 days a week unless the lifeguards (who sometimes doubled as babysitters) had to wrangle us out of the pool for thunder/ lightning. Many times, we were there later eating crab dip for dinner with our swim team buddies and playing red rover just far enough off the golf course that we wouldn’t get in trouble. Most of my summer memories comes from that club, not even mentioning the parties I went to/ threw throughout the years (I’ve been to three wedding showers recently, including the one I hosted), and the amazing support they gave us when my sister died.

Luckily, my mom still loves it just as much and is still a member. While I now can mostly only spend weekends poolside, sipping sweet tea vodka and lemonade instead of Powerade now, I will never turn down a day in the sun with a good book any chance I can get.

If you saw my Instagram post from this past weekend, you saw my adorable new pool bag from Target. The pool opens THIS SATURDAY, y’all! And while I’m set for new suites for the summer thanks to Cupshe, everything else in pool bag can be picked up in one shopping trip to the magical land of Target.

 

 

It does not, however, look like they carry my favorite summer read. I highly suggest your poolside reading includes Palisades Park: A Novel by Alan Brennert.
