So much of summer style is about showing off your legs.

Short shift dresses, flirty frocks, cute cut offs and mini skirts: these are seasonal staples, and in order to pull them off, you need to make sure your pins are in great condition.

This means a few extra pliés next time you’re at the gym, and a little more time and effort spent on exfoliating, shaving and bronzing.

To help get you looking great in the season’s skimpier outfits, I’ve compiled this list of 7 skincare tips for summer legs.

1. Exfoliate

The first step to achieving smooth, soft, even legs is to get to work with a good exfoliator.

Make your own fruity sugar scrub by combining blended pineapple with a glug of olive oil and some yellow sugar: the enzymes in the pineapple act as a chemical astringent and, along with the grainy sugar, will help to buff away dead skin skills and impurities that make your skin dull.

2. The Right Razor

Shaving has it’s downsides: it needs to be done every couple of days, and, if you buy the wrong product, you risk ingrown hairs and blade rash. In summer, however, I find it is the most efficient hair removal method: the alternatives are either only partially effective or require that you grow your leg hair which prevents you from wearing anything that exposes your pins. In order to enjoy the full benefits of shaving, , it is so important that you buy a good razor. Go for something with a built-in soothing serum, and remember to change the blades as soon as you think they’ve lost their edge.

3. Shaving Gel

There are a lot of shaving products out there, and they all seem to be pretty similar, getting the right one can make a difference to your legs.

Go for a product that is dedicated specifically to women and women’s skin: remember that male-orientated variations are not designed for legs but for the face.

If you can, it’s also a good idea to consider something with a built-in vitamin supplement;2

this will help to nourish and sooth recently shaved skin.
