Spring is officially just around the corner… FINALLY! I’m so excited and I wasn’t even here for all of winter. Normally I don’t mind winter that much, but we’ve had an unusual amount of snow here, so I’m pretty over it at this point. Plus, I want to get my legs out in all of the cute summer clothes I bought while I was in New Zealand!
My legs, however, aren’t quite ready. They haven’t seen the light of day in a solid month and a half, and I basically gave up on shaving them for that same amount of time (we all need a break every now and again). By the end of my time in New Zealand, they just weren’t looking too hot (we went on a really tough three day hike right before we left and I got absolutely destroyed by the sun). So, needless to say, there is some work to be done before I start baring my legs to the world, haha.
Luckily, I have the perfect skin-care products to tackle the job. The first order of business when your legs have seen better days is a good scrubbing. The I Am Organic Sugar Scrub in Restored (a beautiful lavender and rosemary scent) is perfect for sloughing off all of the dead, dry winter skin while leaving a layer of moisture behind that will then help with getting a close, smooth shave. I recommend to scrub pre-shave rather than post-shave, because depending on how much dry skin you have going on, your shave might not feel as smooth if you scrub afterwards.
You can have soft, smooth skin all day long, but if a leg full of prickly hairs accompanies it, what’s the point? This is where the Venus Platinum Extra Smooth razor (grab yours at Target!) comes in. It features Gillette Venus’ first made for women metal handle that has a little weight to it, which I find very nice to get a smooth, controlled shave. The 5 blades are like no other and give the closest shave, while the built-in 360˚ Ribbon of Moisture helps the razor move smoothly and evenly. Thanks to the razor’s premium glide technology that completely surrounds blades and releases lubricants when activated by water for enhanced comfort, I’ve successfully managed to shave my legs and not nick myself, not even once, which is rare for me!
It’s time to feel our best! Do you have any tips for saying sayonara your winter skin and getting barelegged ready for spring?
