4 easy ways to enhance your legs
How much easier is a summer wardrobe? Dresses, skirts and shorts - so quick to pop on and no layering required!
But along with this easy, breezy wardrobe comes the fact your legs are about to take centre stage. If the thought of that scares you, just stay calm and keep on reading because we’ve got some amazing tips below to help get your legs out of hibernation and looking slim, smooth and sexy - just in time for summer.
#1 Try toning exercises
If you don’t already have some leg exercises incorporated into your workout routine, try adding in some lunges, squats and step-ups.
Lunges will work your glutes, quads and also engage your hamstrings. Once you get the hang of things, try carrying a dumbbell in each hand to increase the intensity.
Squats are often considered a butt-firming exercise, but they’re also really good for working the thighs and lower legs. Make sure you’re doing them correctly by pretending there is a chair behind you and treat the action as though you’re about to sit (or even use a real chair if it helps!).
And last but not least, step-ups will provide a complete leg workout, so head to the park, find a bench and get stepping! If you want to make it a little harder, add a knee up at the end of each step.
#2 Smooth and silky in one simple step
If you consider hair removal as a bit of a chore, you need the Schick Intuition Pure Nourishment Razor in your life. It does so much more than just remove hair. It will simplify your shave and care for your skin – a time-poor girls saviour!

The flexible, four blade pivoting head makes maneuvering around your ankles and knees a breeze and the wire wrapped blades will also help to prevent nicks and cuts.
Plus, the Skin Condition Solid, has visible moisturising strips, which help to moisturise dry skin as you shave to leave your legs looking silky and smooth - meaning you can literally go from shower to dressed without a second thought. Sexy, smooth and hair-free legs is now simple with Schick Intuition!
#3 Add some shimmer
If you really want to take your legs to the next level, try dusting some shimmer powder down the centre of your shin. The light will reflect off the shimmer particles, drawing attention to the most slender part of your leg, making the skin look extra silky and glowing.
#4 Select your shoes wisely
The difference between your legs looking long and lean or short and stumpy can sometimes come down to the style of shoe you’re wearing. And don’t be tricked into thinking that a heel will automatically fall into the long and lean category - it’s more about where the shoe begins. If you’d like your legs to look longer, opt for a shoe that doesn’t cut you off at the ankle. Stay away from chunky straps that start on your leg or ankle boots that cut straight across - instead opt for thinner straps or a shoe that wraps around the back of your ankle, not the front.
Choosing your pair in nude can also help to elongate the leg. Nude shoes that are close to your skin colour will ensure you leg extends all the way to the ground. It’s also good to remember if you’re going for flats, to try and avoid rounded ballet flats as they can give the legs a shorter appearance.
