Taking Care of Your Legs During The Summer

Taking Care of Your Legs During the Summer

I love the summer time. I enjoy visiting our local parks and beaches and spending lots of time outdoors with my boys. I also love being able to wear dresses and shorts and not having to wear multiple layers and bundle up when leaving the house.

Since I spend most of the summer wearing dresses I have to take good care of my skin and particularly my legs. Below I share my personal skin care routine to have healthy looking legs that are soft and smooth all summer long.


  • Bath Time

Spending a lot of time outdoors with the boys, jumping on the trampoline and playing on the grass and dirt means my skin needs a good cleanse every evening. I often take a relaxing bath after the boys are in bed. I use the AVEENO® Skin Relief Gentle Scent Coconut Body Wash and I love it. My skin feels super smooth, clean and smells amazing after my baths.

  • Shave

The not so secret “secret” to smooth, soft legs is getting rid of unwanted hair. The Schick Intuition Advanced Moisture razor helps me moisturize while I shave. I love not having to use shaving gel and that saves me precious time and money. I also like the Skin Conditioning Solid containing Shea Butter that keeps my legs soft and healthy looking.

  • Moisturize

After a nice bath and getting rid of all unwanted hair I use the AVEENO® Skin Relief Gentle Scent Coconut Lotion to lock in moisture and replenish my skin. After applying my skin feels velvety soft and it is the perfect end to a fun day in the sun.  I just love the light coconut scent as well.

  • Sunscreen

Do you want beautiful, healthy skin? Make sure you use sunscreen daily, even on those cloudy,  overcast days. I apply sunscreen  to my face, arms and legs every morning religiously and re-apply mid-day if I have been very active or spent time in a pool or playing with water. Skin protection is super important, don’t forget that.

Do you have a special skin care routine for the summer? Any must haves/dos? Share your tips below.

    I love these razors, no need for shaving cream, but I find the cream part runs out way before the razor is ready to be replaced,other than that I love it!!

    I haven’t used shave cream or gel in awhile it tends to be too perfumy for me

    Love aveeno products! I usually use coconut oil when shaving – I hate shave gel.

    Aveeno is one of my favorite brands of all time! Feels lovely on my skin.

    This shaver sounds like what I may need. My skin is so dry and my legs have bumps and age spots etc. that when I shave they get nicks sometimes. Also I love Aveeno products and have not ever use the AVEENO Skin Relief Gentle Scent Coconut Lotion. I will have to shop for it to try.
