Have you ever thought about waxing your legs? For the smoothest, silkiest legs, and for legs that stay that way the longest, waxing is definitely the way to go. Fortunately, it isn’t the only way you can achieve great-looking legs either. There are many tricks you can use for getting better skin and toned legs. Here are some favorites to think about.\n \nWaxing Works\nIt's the easiest and least expensive way to remove hair at the root. When wax is heated to a certain temperature it sticks to the hairs, but won’t burn the skin. When the wax is pulled off, the hairs come with it. Waxing generally lasts about three weeks, but over time, hairs often become less coarse and sparse, which may extend that time. Razors and hair removal creams remove skin from only the surface or just below it, and do not offer the silky-skin time that waxing does. Tweezing also removes hair by its root and it's fine for small areas such as the eyebrows, but it's not practical for areas such as the legs and underarms. \n \nSome Other Ways to Show Off Your Legs\nIf waxing isn’t something you can put in your budget or something you can schedule, there are some other ways you can get smooth, silky legs. Here are some ideas:\n\nMoisturize your legs every night.\nExercise daily to help tone your leg muscles and prevent signs of aging.\nDo lunges, leg lifts, and other leg-toning exercises.\nAvoid long periods of standing as it may encourage varicose veins to form.\nAvoid excess salt as it may lead to unattractive ankle swelling.\nGet a leg tan or use bronzing cream: Legs with a little color are more attractive and a tan will help hide mild spider veins.\nWearing shoes with a bit of heel will show off the calves better than flats.\nFor the very smoothest legs, it's important to exfoliate with a loofah or special exfoliating cream twice a week.\n\nBe sure to upkeep any skin regimen you begin. Whether you exfoliate or apply lotion, only consistency will make a real difference.\n \nSpider Veins\nIf you have spider veins, do you long for the clear legs you once had? Lasers can be used an effective varicose vein treatment to eliminate those unsightly, strange, little red and purple veins. The effects are often dramatic and the recovery time is pretty short.\n \nThese are some great suggestions to get you started on your way to more beautiful and smooth legs. Give them a try and see for yourself what works best for you and your legs.
