The Ultimate DIY Cream To Prepare Legs For Minidresses

Legs for kisses!

Being already in the middle of the spring season while starting styling summer outfits and dreaming of idyllic places, where we can normally travel after quarantine and lockdowns, our legs should be our first priority before going around bare, right? Here you will find the ultimate DIY cream to heal them from the harsh winter conditions that have left them itchy and dry and make them super moisturized again. Who doesn’t want to prepare legs for minidresses, miniskirts, shorts, even swimwear? Needless to say, the first step is not only just drink gallons of water to get rid of cellulite and water retention, but also to work out regularly, not to say every day! Start exercising by letting yourself 30-40 minutes of walking a day while adding two to three sets of strength moves like squats, calf raises and lunges three times a week on nonconsecutive days.

But, although the psychical activity along with a nutritious and healthy low-fat diet are the key factors to achieve a beautifully well-sculpted and fit body figure, and of course perfect toned legs, what about the body texture? So regarding the next essential step which is the appearance of the body skin, it is very important to keep a constant beauty and skincare routine so as to keep it smooth, glossy, and glowy. How? First, you need to remove flaky and dead skin cells in order to make your skin healthy-looking and soft to the touch as well as prepare it to receive additional products or treatments. Exfoliate by gently applying a scrub in a circular motion on the legs as it promotes cell regeneration, or take a natural bristle brush and go for dry brushing. This method not only removes the dead cells but also effectively stimulates blood circulation of the lymph areas that are prone to cellulite so start at your feet brushing your way up the body using firm strokes. Pro Tip: You may also soak in a detox bath, using natural salts and ingredients you have at home pulling heavy metals and toxins from your body, and improving your overall health. And here comes the ultimate DIY cream which will lock moisture and give your legs a natural glow that lasts all day long.

Ingredients:

  • 2 tbsp shea butter
  • 2 tbsp cocoa butter
  • 2 tbsp almond oil
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil (extra-virgin, unrefined)
  • 5 drops pure vanilla or sandalwood essential oil
  • Glass jar

Instructions:

Melt cocoa butter over a bain-marie. Then add the melted cocoa butter, shea butter, almond oil, and coconut oil to the blender and blend well until your mixture is homogenized. Almost done! Now add vanilla or sandalwood essential oil and store your mixture in a glass jar.

Benefits:

Shea butter thanks to its anti-aging and anti-inflammatory properties can repair the damaged skin, reduce the risk of drynessboost collagen production, and lessen the appearance of fine lines resulting in plumper skin. Plus it’s a natural sunscreen protecting you against harmful UV rays. High in fatty acids, cocoa butter deeply nourishes and moisturizes the skin while improving skin tone and elasticity and minimizing the appearance of stretch marks and scars. The best part is that, like shea butter, cocoa packed with precious polyphenols acts against the signs of aging! Used for centuries to soothe and soften skin, almond oil apart from its moisturizing gifts helps firm our body skin and relieve itchiness or inflammation. Especially for over 40-years old women that face even drier skin, almond oil is the miraculous beauty ally they are searching for. Last but not least, coconut oil which is also ideal for hair treatments, locks skin moisture as it deeply penetrates the skin healing patchy and rough parts of the body. You can also apply it directly from its jar as a lip balm, as a night mask, or as a daily moisturizing body oil. Now you can figure out that when we mix all the above ingredients together, we create a powerful moisturizing bomb our skin will definitely love. Therefore, when exfoliation is over, apply this ultimate DIY vanilla cream right away and keep using it on a regular basis to make your legs silky and velvet by summer!
