Celebrities seem to have it all: beautiful clothes, hair, skin and even sexy, shiny legs. Instead of being envious, however, think of how lucky you are. You don’t have to spend a fortune on your looks and employ a team of makeup artists. You can experiment with cosmetics and hair products in the comfort of your own home. You can even get movie star legs. There are several methods to bring out the shine in your legs. Try them all to find the one that works best for you. You will be more than ready for your close-up.
Rub oil into your clean-shaven or depilated legs. You can use almond, coconut or jojoba. Sprinkle a couple drops into your palm and rub the oil over your entire leg. Add more oil to your hand if you run out. Oil the other leg. Make sure you rub the oil in completely so that it doesn’t look greasy.
Make your regular body lotion shine by adding baby oil to it. Pour a couple drops of body lotion into your hand and add a drop of baby oil to your lotion. There is no set formula. You are just using the baby oil to bring out the shine. Apply the lotion to your legs, making sure you rub it in evenly.
Apply a self-tanning moisturizer. There are several brands available. Follow the application directions on the label. You will get a subtle glow after a few days from using the product.
Use a liquid bronzer on your legs. Apply the bronzer according to the package directions. Make sure you rub it in evenly. The bronzer will add a subtle shimmer and shine.
