Afternoon beauty fix: Get ready to say goodbye to tights! Start prepping for bare-leg season with these tricks
What can I do now to make sure my legs look nice when the seasons change? I’ve been lazy with moisturizing but can hardly wait to go tights-free!
For every Canadian girl who loves her tights in the winter but can’t wait to be rid of them once warmer weather comes, we’re in the home stretch now! Which means it’s officially the season to make sure your legs look their best. In the shower, switch out your body soap for a cleanser that also contains oil, since your skin cells need to be sufficiently hydrated from within. Try using a loofah in tandem with Nivea Shower Gel & Oil ($6, at drugstores)—it contains sunflower oil and cleansers that foam up in the shower but wash away without leaving a greasy feeling behind. Once you’re out and towelling off—but before your legs are completely dry—grab a tube of heavy-duty moisturizer like Vaseline Total Moisture Dry Skin ($10, at drugstores). It contains oat extracts to calm inflammation in super-dry cells and will help your body absorb excess water from the shower. When the weather is finally warm enough, your legs will emerge looking like they spent the winter in Mexico. Arriba!
