How To Get Great Looking Legs

(Even in Winter!)

legs in winter - opaque tights, seamless tights, anti cellulite tights 

Ok so the winter has only just shown its face but already many of us are thinking of the summer break next year.  Your probably not alone in leaving it to the last minute to think about how you’re going to look when you strip down to your bikini.   After all winter is a great time for covering up and seasonal eating and drinking – all adding up to a few additional pounds and the appearance of a bit of cellulite (or in my case a lot of cellulite!).

So whether you are either planning a little winter sun or thinking about a long term strategy for your summer beach body, here are a few simple tips to getting great looking legs.

 

TIP 1 – EXERCISE

Now before you groan and say you haven’t got time for this, it’s actually not too onerous.  Walking daly is the perfect leg toning exercise, especially walking up hill which will boost your metabolism, burn fat and tone your thighs.  As little as 20 minutes walking a day can have a beneficial effect on your legs as well as your mental health and getting you some essential vitamin D.  Do it in your lunch break to get away from your desk and get the triple benefit of some zen time!

squat exercises - anti cellulite tights

If you want to do something more “strength” orientated, then squats and leg lifts will tone your legs.  Yoga stretches will relax and stretch you, giving you a lean silhouette as well as a calm mind.

TIP 2 – EXFOLIATE and MOISTURISE (and DE-FUZZ)

This might look like 3 tips in one, but think of it more as a 3 part process.  Keeping the skin on your legs constantly renewed by exfoliation is also a great way to improve your circulation.  Using a loofah, salt or sugar scrub and massaging your legs in a circular motion will get rid of all the dead skin, encourage new skin growth and prepare the skin for moisturising. 

Using a light moisturiser regularly also give the skin a massage which encourages circulation and skin health.

shaving legs - anti cellulite tights

It’s easy to give up waxing or shaving your legs in the winter if you are hiding your legs under thick winter tights.  Giving your legs a real treat with 'the full monty" of attention will leave you feeling much more comfortable and confident – so don’t make it just for special occasions. And only shave your legs AFTER exfoliation, you’ll get more out of your razor blades as well as reducing the chance of ingrowing hairs

 

TOP THRIFTY TIP: 

Use one-part oil (can be any vegetable oil) and 6-parts fine table salt for a great dry salt scrub.  You can add a little essential oil for aroma - lavender is great for this.   Let the oil soak into the salt and use a handful on your dry body in the shower before washing.  The oil gives your skin a moisture boost and the salt is a great defoliant.  Great for feet, heels, elbows, and legs.  Do not use it on your face as the salt is too course.  And do take care not to slip in the shower.  (Department store option cost at least £20 - this tip can cost as little as £1 for a large tub and has the added benefit of you knowing exactly what's in it!!).

 

TIP 3 – CELLULITE!

Whilst there are a multitude of creams and lotions on the market, the easiest way to deal with your cellulite is wearing Beauty Tights – the anti-cellulite secret weapon – which work while you wear them for a real boost.  Beauty Tights are the equivalent of a lot of tiny dry brushes working on your legs all day.  Within 3 wears you will notice a difference.  Unlike most shape wear which is stiff and uncomfortable, Beauty Tights offer a shaping effect without the discomfort.  Leaving you with an instantly smaller hips, thighs and bottom and a smooth silhouette – in complete comfort.  After 10 minutes you will have forgotten you are wearing them!

TIP 4 – AND FINALLY

When you have spent the winter looking after your legs, get a quick spray tan before you hit the beach – nothing boosts confidence more than feeling and looking great.  A decent false tan gives you that healthy additional glow to go with your super smooth and toned looking legs.
