The legs are often areas which are neglected in terms of beauty regimes, but ignoring your legs can lead to a whole host of problems which can be harder to deal with in the long run. We’ve put together a list of tips for taking care of your legs so that you don’t forget them while they’re hidden away this winter!
Sedentary jobs, cold weather and certain medical conditions can all cause issues with circulation and with many of us getting less exercise because of the longer hours, keeping the blood flowing can be tricky. We recommend Decleor Circulagel Refreshing Leg Gel after your bath or shower to energise and revive tired legs and to give your circulation a boost.
Hiding your legs away under trousers or tights means that you often don’t notice when your legs are looking dry and ashy, but keeping them exfoliated and smooth throughout the winter means that you’ll be ready for skirts and shorts once spring rolls around. Dermalogica Exfoliating Body Scrub will buff away dead skin cells and stimulate cell renewal.
Protection After Hair Removal
Whether you shave, wax or depilate, caring for your legs after you remove hair is vital for avoiding ingrown hairs and slowing regrowth. Decleor Post-Wax Double Action Gel is essential if waxing is your hair removal method of choice. If you favour shaving, opt for a good shave gel, such as Decleor Express Shave Foam Gel, and treat the skin after shaving with Dermalogica Soothing Shave Cream.
Replacing lost moisture after shaving and exfoliating is one of the most important ways that you can care for your legs and you can risk using an ultra-rich cream in this area as it’s unlikely that it’ll be prone to spots or greasiness! Dermalogica Ultra Rich Body Cream will moisturise deeply and can be used on even the most sensitive of skin.
Legs are an area which can often be affected by cellulite, which can be tricky to get rid of and will look unsightly if left untreated. Decleor Slim Effect Localised Contouring Gel-Cream promotes the reduction of existing fat cells and prevents the formulation of new ones. It also improves elasticity and firmness in the skin and stimulates circulation. The gel-cream is easily absorbed and can be massaged in after a bath or shower for powerful results.
