Without a doubt, one of the best perks of being a tall girl is having long legs! Whether you wear flats, heels, maxi dresses or miniskirts, lengthy pins will look good in any outfit. So if you have an upcoming event where you’d like to showcase your long legs, then listed below are five of the best beauty products which will leave your best assets looking beautiful and feeling silky smooth.
1. Invest in a sea-based body wash
According to recent studies, body washes and cleansing scrubs which are enriched with algae, seaweed, sea salt and all manner of underwater ingredients have been shown to revitalise your skin. Infused with a broad spectrum of vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants, these sea-based skincare products are extremely effective at removing dead skin cells, promoting the growth of new skin cell tissue and reducing the appearance of cellulite. By using these marine-inspired body washes on a daily basis you can ensure your long legs look their best for any occasion.
2. Always use moisturising shaving creams
Over time shaving can leave your legs feeling dry, rough and itchy. Fortunately, you can quickly and easily remedy this skincare dilemma by purchasing a shaving cream that has been infused with natural moisturising ingredients. Always avoid products that produce excessive lather and instead opt for non-foaming shaving creams and gels which contain either shea butter, olive oil, vitamin C or E. These targeted skincare solutions will leave your legs feeling soft, supple and undeterred by shaving!
3. Use a post-shower moisturising lotion
In addition to using hydrating body washes and conditioning shaving creams, it is also important not to neglect the importance of a post-shower moisturising lotion. What’s more, if you use a post-shower lotion that has been enriched with plant extracts, such as aloe vera, then you will be able to reduce any inflammation caused by shaving and imbue your legs with an soft, smooth complexion.
4. Apply SPF30+ sunscreen
If you dare to bare your legs on the beach this summer then it is important to protect them against the potential skin cell damage caused by prolonged sun exposure. Wearing a minimum SPF 30 sunscreen at all times (even on cloudy days and in the winter) will safeguard your legs against sunburn and prevent long term skin cell damage. Re-apply this sunscreen every two hours and you will be able to build up a beautiful tan and showcase your long legs all the whilst keeping them sufficiently protected against sunburn.
5. Don’t forget your feet!
Whilst you may be focused on showcasing your long legs, it is worth while taking some time to treat your feet to similar exfoliating and moisturising treatments. A great way to ensure your feet are as soft and supple as your legs is to soak them in a mixture of bath salts and warm water, exfoliate with a pumice stone, and then liberally apply moisturiser once dry. Carrying out this simple yet effective pampering pedicure treatment once a week will ensure your flawless feet offset your show-stopping long legs!
