Silky Smooth Legs

So I saw this on Pinterest and I decided I had to do this! Many times after I shave my legs, they still seem a little bristly. This is a all natural recipe for silky-smooth legs. Check it out....

  • 1 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup oil (I used olive oil, but you can use any oil, coconut oil, baby oil, canola oil, etc.)
  • 3 tablespoons citrus juice (lemon or lime) OR 20 drops Lemon Essential Oil
  • Razor
Mix everything together. I put it into a mason jar and just shook it all up. (If you take the glass jar into the bath or shower with you, please be extra careful.)

Soak your legs in the tub for 5 minutes. Or if you’re taking a shower, wash and conditioner your hair first, then after your legs have had a chance to soak for a few minutes, apply the mixture to your legs and rub it in.  I was surprised at how GOOD this felt!  I ended up using it on my feet and arms as well!
The abrasiveness of the sugar rubs off all the dirt and dead skin, the lemon juice works as a mild skin peel revealing brighter, smoother skin, and, of course, the olive oil penetrates deep into the skin and provides long-lasting moisture.
After rubbing the mixture in for a few minutes….it’s time to shave your legs. Feels pretty good huh? Wellwe’re just getting started!  Now, rinse and REPEAT!  When you get out of the bath or shower, put lotion on and enjoy your silky smoooooooth legs!
