Your legs are an important part of your body, and slim and shapely legs are every woman's dream, especially if you live in shorts or miniskirts. Actually good legs add to the overall effect of any outfit. So it is best to concentrate on them during any beauty treatment or exercise programme. 

Step out in style 
Hair off! 

The very first step would be to banish all traces of fuzz or unwanted hair. There are many ways to do this. You can shave, wax or use a depilatory. Whatever is most convenient. In the case of a depilatory, find out the good ones that are available in the market and do a skin test to see if you get an allergic reaction. Make sure that you follow the instructions carefully and if all is well, you could use it once every week, depending on your hair growth. But you must be careful not to use it immediately before or after your bath, because skin is always more sensitive after using hot water. As the pores are opened, any residue of the depilatory could get soaked in and harm the skin in the long run. 

Waxing is one of the most popular methods, if you can stand the pull of hot wax. This can be done once a month or every six weeks, depending on your hair growth. This is one of the cleanest and most hygienic methods and leaves no residue. It is also known to decrease the growth of your hair over a period of time. You can get it done at a parlour or even learn to do it at home. But do not do this too often as it encourages ingrowth. The downside is that you will have to learn to live with a little fuzz until the hair grows long enough for your next wax.  

Shaving is for those of you who live in shorts or skirts daily and require no fuzz 365 days of the year. As you know, it can be done every alternate day or even daily, right in your own home. But a word of warning, shaving is known not only increase hair growth but also to make it thicker and more course. 

Tackle gooseflesh 
Smooth skin! 

Waxing or shaving too often can result in gooseflesh or ugly goosebumps that spoil the beauty of shapely legs. So it is time to get to work with a loofah. Start at the ankles and work your way towards the top of the thighs with a rotary action using lots of soap. Dry your legs with a towel using a strong upward motion from your feet. Then massage in a good hand and body lotion or baby oil while the skin is still warm and the pores are open, so that the skin gets well nourished. Concentrate a little more on the knees and rough heels, as these require more attention. 

You can also use 10 drops of sandalwood oil in 100ml coconut oil or olive oil and massage your leg or the entire body just before your bath.
