Showing Off Beautiful Legs – You Can Do it!

Posted on February 2, 2015 · Posted in Blog

You’re beautiful, gorgeous and supremely attractive, but you’ve never dared don on a short sexy dress. Why? Because you think your legs are not hot or gorgeous enough. Do they have bruises, fade spots and is a ghostly pallor shade? Or does it seem dry, rough and scaly?

For some people a simple process of exfoliation and tanning does the trick, while for others with a more serious condition of veins and skin bruises a more complicated laser treatment may be required. You may first have to identify the problems you are facing. If it’s just a case of rough skin, topical treatments are ideal. For serious skin conditions, do make sure you pay the skin specialist a visit.

After several case studies, we have concluded three basic leg appearance problems along with their viable solutions.

1. For Pale and Veiny Legs – Take On Self Tanning Products
Have legs that are pale and veiny? Need some color? The best solution – self tanning products. But to get the best results, here are some steps you ought to follow.

• Exfoliate for Even Skin
The skin needs to be even and smooth if you want a perfect tanning otherwise some areas where the skin is thicker, you would have botchy patches instead of a smooth tan. Exfoliation helps remove rough skin and gives it the smoothness required. Use a Neutrogena Energizing Sugar Body Scrub and give attention on areas such as your knees and feet where the skin is more scaly and rough.

• Moisturize for the Smooth Affect
While exfoliation clears your skin of scaly residues and dead cells, moisturizers give the skin a velvety smoothness that is ideal for getting a uniformed tanning. A light moisturizing lotion like Nivea Smooth Sensation should be ideal.

• Start the Tanning
Now you finally start applying the tan – but hold on. Even though the bottle directions say to start from your feet, experts consider that wrong. They suggest ladies to apply the tan right where the sun hits most. According to them, the tan should be applied from the middle of the thighs, reaching out to the middle of the calves and then finally spreading it out. The feet should get the last rub and better results can be achieved if you could do this standing up instead of sitting down just to ensure uniformity.

• Give Your Legs Some Shine
Tanning looks best if it can show some shimmer. For this, simply get yourself a iridescent lotion and apply it gently over your legs. For people who already have dark skin, this shine affect is all they need to have a pair of gorgeous legs.

Remember to always apply a moisturizing lotion after you shower to protect the legs from getting scaly and rough. Exfoliate once in a while and you will be on your way to having beautiful, admirable legs.

2. Tales of Blue Bruises – Take on Some Vitamin C
Have legs that look like you just came from a rugby match? Well, that’s your skin losing its fat and while you can’t do anything about the fat loss (it’s natural as we age), you can sure take on some Vitamin C to improve the skin and strengthen blood vessels.

3. Of Veins and Wild Lines – Some Costly Treatments
Veins and fine lines are usually noticeable at the ankle area, the knees and the thighs. For some people, the condition is usually severe with veins being clearly visible underneath the skin. There are several treatments options, depending upon the severity of the condition and the type of veins that you are dealing with.

There are several types of veins and each require a different kind of treatment – here’s just a short briefing of them.
• The Spider Veins
These are thinnest, tiniest veins that could be visible. You can have their visibility treated with laser. You may experience discomfort for a day or two after which you should be alright.

• The Large Veins
Now these ones are pretty annoying especially when they look like rail maps. A treatment called Sclerotherapy is a medical procedure used to eliminate varicose veins and spider veins. Sclerotherapy involves an injection of a solution (generally a salt solution) directly into the vein. The solution irritates the lining of the blood vessel, causing it to swell and stick together, and the blood to clot. Over time, the vessel turns into scar tissue that fades from view

• Bulging Veins
If you’ve got protruding veins, you will again need to go for a collapsing treatment. The procedure is known as , “Endovenous laser treatment”, and is a bit more complicated. It starts off with local anesthesia, followed by an insertion of laser fiber in the vein. The laser heat up the vein’s wall and that collapses it. You may experience discomfort for several days but after that bulging veins are gone for sure!
Ladies, you don’t have to hide your legs anymore. Treat yourself well and give your legs some love!
