How to Get Supermodel Legs (Through Skincare)
If squats feel too much for you lately, relax. There are other ways to firm, smooth, and brighten your legs without enduring gruelling workouts.
All you need are a few skincare essentials and tools to get your legs looking just as flawless as the likes of Bella Hadid and Kendall Jenner.
Here's how to get supermodel legs through skincare.
#1: Shave Your Legs
First things first, grab your favorite razor and get to work removing your fuzz. While hair removal is down to each and every woman, if you're seeking supermodel legs, that means extra smooth, silky, glowing stems. And the way to achieve that? A nourishing shave cream or butter and a sharp razor. Supermodels don't have stubble.
Exfoliation is always an important step in a shaving routine -- and skincare routine, for that matter. But what exactly is the point of exfoliating your skin? Exfoliation sloughs away dead skin cells on the skin's surface to reveal fresh skin underneath. Besides leaving your skin feeling super soft and smooth, it also enables other skincare products to penetrate the skin more effectively.
Lotions, serums, and oils cannot penetrate skin with a build up of dirt and dead skin, which is why it's so important to start your routine with an invigorating scrub. In other words, it helps make your beauty products work ten times harder!
It's also extremely important to do if you're planning on applying self-tanner, as it ensures an all over even tan without lines and streaks.
#3: Apply a Tightening Body Mask
Now for the fun stuff -- the masks and serums.
To firm up your gams and bum area, apply a tightening body mask like Rainbow's Tighten Butt Mask. It's made with exfoliating papaya and collagen-boosting retinol to help with stretch marks and cellulite for utterly smooth skin.
Retinol can be extremely effective for treating stretch marks as it can stimulate collagen production which may help to diminish the appearance of stretch marks. It also helps exfoliate and smooth out the appearance of stretch marks. Plus, it can improve skin tone for a nice natural glow.
After showering or bathing, apply a generous layer of the mask and massage it into your bum and legs. Leave it on for 10-20 minutes, then rinse with lukewarm water. For best results, use this mask 3x week.
#4: Slather on Serum
To actively treat cellulite on your butt and legs, use a serum or moisturizer formulated with skincare ingredients that target cellulite.
Rainbow's Anti-Cellulite Serum is made with a blend of hydrating watermelon and plumping vegan collagen to smooth out cellulite and stretch marks. It's perfect for dry skin and those dealing with blemishes.
Watermelon is rich in vitamin C, amino acids and lycopene, a powerful antioxidant that’s great for aging skin. It also promotes cell regeneration, hydrates, and gently buffs skin for a silky finish.
Apply a thin layer after showering or bathing. Massage it into your bum and legs, and wait for it to absorb before getting dressed. For best results, use this serum daily, as part of your post-shower routine.
#5: Finish Up With a Smoothing Mask
Finally, complete your supermodel legs routine with a smoothing, hydrating body mask to inject moisture into skin and plump out dimples.
Rainbow's Smooth Mask is an age defending face and body mask that's perfect for giving you those Victoria's Secret Angel legs. Vitamin C and vegan collagen work in tandem to brighten, tighten, and hydrate for silky smooth supermodel legs.
Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant known to promote collagen production, fight free radicals, and thicken the dermis to combat fine line formation, and give a radiant glow to the skin.
Apply a generous layer to your bum and legs. Leave it on for 10-20 minutes, then rinse. For best results, use this mask 3x per week.
DAILY HACKS FOR SUPERMODEL LEGS
Wondering what else you can do to firm up those gams? Here are some quick tips for attaining those dreamy supermodel stems.
Apply Highlighter or Shimmer
To create a long, lean look, highlight the high points of your legs to create a more sculpted and defined look. Simply blend a highlighter or shimmery lotion down the center of your legs to create the illusion of Victoria's Secret Model legs. It's a quick way to elevate your stems, and especially useful for last-minute nights.
Drink Lots of Water
While it's not exactly a hack since you'll need to do it daily to see results, you will see instant glowiness by drinking additional water. Staying hydrated from the inside is essential for keeping your organs functioning properly -- and one of those organs is the biggest of them all: your skin. Sip on water throughout the day to keep your skin gleaming from head to toe.
Try an Airbrush Spray
There are plenty of them on the market, and they're great for tightening, toning, and promoting model-worthy legs. Models and celebs use these products as a quick fix for improving the appearance of their legs. It can also help hide cellulite, stretch marks, and spider veins. Hence, the reason it's called airbrush spray.
Roll Over Your Dimples
Cellulite is often caused by poor circulation. Boost circulation by gliding your legs over a foam roller. Doing this on a daily basis is a great way to reduce bumps and dimples. Make the gliding process easier by applying coconut oil before starting. Or apply it after for hydration.
Getting supermodel legs might seem too good to be true, but you can definitely achieve it with a few good skincare products and hacks like those mentioned above.
Remember to always wear sunscreen whenever your legs are exposed outside. In the summer months, when you start wearing minis again, daily SPF use is essential for warding off fine lines, wrinkles, dark spots, and dullness.
At the end of the day, your legs aren't going to look very supermodel-like if they're sun-damaged. Sunscreen is your best bet for preventing that from happening.
