Summer, summer, summertime. Time to sit back and unwind. Wait, sit back and unwind? Clearly they don’t have kids because as every mom knows, summer sunshine means your kids are on the go from sun up until that late summer sun sets. And that means you are on the move too! In this house summer is splashing in the pool, riding waves and building sand castles at the beach, and spending every last minute outside taking in every bit of this glorious season. With Fourth of July right around the corner, I need to get my summer prep started early and I’m not just talking about breaking out the bathing suits (Yikes!). No friends, it’s time to get those legs out of hiding. It’s not winter anymore and you can’t hide behind yoga pants this time of year. But don’t fret, because I’m sharing my three steps for mom to get perfect summer legs!
Believe me, I get that the days of long, luxurious showers are gone. GONE! However, you don’t need a long shower (without small children knocking on the door) to get great summer legs. You just need the right tools. OK, maybe you need some level of privacy, but I can’t help you with that. But I can help you find what you need to get those legs ready for summer fun.
Just like a chef needs great tools in the kitchen, you need great tools in the shower! Before I started to shake off that winter blahh from my skin, I popped over to the shaving aisle at Walmart and got everything that I needed for my three steps to perfect summer legs: Prepare, Shave and Protect. I grabbed Skintimate Skin Therapy Sensitive Skin shave gel, Schick Hydro Silk Sensitive Care razor, and Hawaiian Tropic Sheer Touch Ultra Radiance SPF 30. I love having new shower products and I was ready to put these three to good use!
Now, let’s talk about those three steps, I know you have to be fast because as soon as you turn that hot water on, someone in the house will come looking for you so here is what you need to know:
1. Prepare- It was a long winter and skipping regular shaving, forgetting to put lotion on and the winter chill probably did a number of your legs. I know you are in a hurry but don’t skip this step! Start with an exfoliating shower gel to wash away dry and dead skin. Then apply a moisturizing shave gel like Skintimate Skin Therapy Sensitive Skin to protect and prepare your legs.
2. Shave- Any old razor just won’t do! You need something that is designed to be gentle on your legs but grab even the tiniest of hairs. You are less likely to have irritation in your bikini area if you are using a razor like Schick Hydro Silk Sensitive Care razor because the water activated moisture serum in the razor gets the job done and keeps your skin feeling super smooth.
3. Protect- We all know how important protecting our skin from the sun’s harmful rays is, and we would never send our kids out in the sun without protecting their skin. So don’t forget about your precious skin, Mamma! Not only does Hawaiian Tropic Sheer Touch Ultra Radiance SPF 30 smell amazing, but the SPF keeps you save, the moisturizer keeps your legs feeling soft.
Now you are ready for anything that summer throws your way! Bring on the Fourth of July and everything we have on our schedule.
Like a little sidewalk art…
A stroll on the beach…
And being on lifeguard duty…
