glowy skin plan: YOUR LEGS

IT'S THAT TIME OF THE YEAR AGAIN - TIME TO GET YOUR LEGS 'OUT'...
here are three easy tips to get them into 'short skirt shape':
1. Even out your skin. Got dark spots or uneven patches? Give your legs a weekly rubdown with an exfoliator that contains lactic acid or alpha hydroxy acid. They both speed up cell turnover to uncover fresher skin faster. Another great leg slougher: shaving ~ you’re taking off layers of the epidermis, too...
a great trick to do before self-tanning.

2. Scar-proof your legs. If you’re prone to bug bites, avoid perfume, scented lotions and other products, and bright clothing when you’re planning to spend time outdoors—they attract insects. Replace your razors often to avoid nicks, and don’t scratch bumps or dry spots. That’s what causes an inflammatory response that makes you itch more.

3. Choose the right razor. All razors are not created equal ~ as I've come to realise.
The new Gillette Venus ProSkin is frickin' amazing!
It's easy-to-use in the shower, doesn't cut your legs, doesn't dry your legs out
 ~ and it literally takes 2 minutes to get super-smooth pins. Genius!

Hi, do you any suggestions for exfoliators for your legs that are budget friendly. I'm a mum of three in a one income household. Ta.
