Get your Legs Summer Ready in 3 Easy Steps

I have been enjoying the weather lately and spending time outside with the boys, fresh air and sunshine are seriously the best mood lifters! As the sun is finally shining around here and summertime is near I am getting excited about wearing the cute summer dresses and shorts sitting in my closet.

Wearing shorts and dresses means showing off your legs and soft, smooth legs are IN! Below you’ll find our beauty routine tips to help you achieve touchable, gorgeous legs, just in time for the summer, and all in 3 easy to follow steps.

Love Your Legs Beauty Routine {Step by Step}

Get your Legs Summer Ready in 3 Easy Steps


Shaving in the shower? Prepare your legs by cleansing your skin with a moisturizing body wash.  I use the new AVEENO® Daily Moisturizing Vanilla & Oats Yogurt Body Wash and I love the ACTIVE NATURALS® Oatmeal and nutrient-rich yogurt formula that leaves my legs super soft and ready to shave. You can use a loofah while cleaning your legs to remove dead skin particles, exfoliating also helps prevent ingrown hairs in the future.


Make sure you’re in a warm shower or bath to soften hair prior to shaving. After cleansing your skin you can now shave by using the new Schick® Intuition® Island Berry (available exclusively at Shopper’s Drug Mart). Using a Schick® Intuition® razor is the best way to simplify your routine by shaving in one easy step, saving time and skipping the shaving cream. The luxurious scent of the Acai Berry extract is to die for.

Love Your Legs Beauty Routine {Step by Step}


Your skin is usually very sensitive after shaving so after you shave, wait at least 30 minutes before applying any lotion. After 30 minutes apply a moisturizing lotion to hydrate and replenish your skin. The Aveeno® Daily Moisturizing Sheer Hydration Lotion keeps your skin soft and hydrated for 24 hours and smells amazing. I love how my legs look and feel after moisturizing!

Are you getting your legs ready for summer? Springtime is the best time to start taking care of your legs and moisturizing before bikini season. All products mentioned above are available at Shoppers Drug Mart and Pharmaprix stores in Canada.

  1. Great, my sandpaper legs could use some smoothing out

  2. Would love smooth legs asap!

  3. Love Aveeno products! And exfoliation is so important, its the only thing that helps me prevent rashes and infections related to ingrowns.

  4. I REALLY REALLY could use this more often ! My skin gets so dry and I have used everything including Aveeno. It’s one of the best but sometimes I believe its my diet as I am dry on other areas of my body too…..I “try” to keep lotion on at all times and its much nicer when hubby applies it to my back. Hard to reach areas like that are a must. And I love these Schick razors that have the lotion strips on them for shaving….goes over my legs more smoothly.

  5. The only disadvantage to summer for me is the fact that it’s time to start shaving my legs again. I have a lot of trouble with ingrown hairs, despite using a loofah. With an epilator it’s horrific and my legs looked horrible so I can only shave them.

  6. These are my favourite product and I Love Aveeno products!

  7. Love when my legs feel silky smooth in the summer!!!
