Jessica Simpson’s legs became famous in 2005’s Dukes of Hazzard and after almost 10 years and two kids later, she is once again showing off those Daisy Dukes. She was spotted in California looking fabulous and as the weather is warming up, we all want to know how to get our sexy stems ready for summer! While there is no magic wand, we can all “kick” those daisies with the right beauty products, a few squats and some amazing shoes. To get ready for summer, try these tips:
· Exfoliate - The key to getting perfectly smooth legs is to give them a good scrubbing
Organic Virgin Olive Oil Body Scrub ($13.99; Vitamin World)
An intensive body scrub with Organic Virgin Olive Oil, Olive Stones, Vine Leaf Extract, Aloe Vera Juice, Blackcurrant Seed Oil, Vitamin C, Sweet Almond Oil, Cotton Seed Oil, Lemon Peel Extract, Thyme Extract and Fennel Extract. It gently, but efficiently removes dead cells from the skin and renews, exfoliates and moisturizes dry, flaking skin.
· Defuzz – get rid of unwanted hair and with so many options from wax stripes to creams you can easily find the right option to get super smooth legs. We like:
Parissa Wax Strips for Legs & Body ($13.00; Parissa.com)
A mess-free, express hair remover that's ready to use. Zip away body hair instantly keeping skin smooth up to 6 weeks. Large Wax Strips with clear backing for fast, pro-style hair removal. Includes a vial of Azulene Oil to soothe & soften skin and prevents ingrown hair.
VEET® Spray on Cream Hair Remover ($8.59; Walmart)
Removes hair effectively so hair grows back feeling softer and leaves skin fully moisturized. Simply spray the targeted area, leave it on for 3 minutes, and remove with the included tool for silky smooth skin. Try getting that with a razor!
· Tone – one thing that doesn’t go with Daisy Dukes, flabby legs so get to doing squats and also try a toning oil
Weleda Birch Cellulite Oil – ($27.50; Whole Foods)
Cellulite gets visibly toned down after just one month with this revitalizing oil made with pure, natural and organic plant extracts that smooth, tone and supports your skin’s overall health. Dermatological tests show a 21% increase in smoothness and a 22% increase in tightness after just one month of twice a day regular use. Apricot kernel oil, skin-friendly organic jojoba seed oil and vitamin-rich wheat germ oil nourish your skin, balance essential moisture and enliven your appearance.
· Moisturize – to add to that smooth, toned, hairless look, moisturize your legs on a daily basis, paying particular attention to the knee and shin areas
Bio-Oil ($11.99; Ulta)
A multi-use skincare oil like Bio-Oil will hydrate skin after a long winter and improve the appearance of scars, stretch marks and uneven skin tone, so that you can bare it all on the beach. Bio-Oil’s unique formulation of Vitamins A & E, Calendula, Lavender and Rosemary Oils and Chamomile extract instantly give skin a healthy-hydrated glow.
First Aid Beauty’s Ultra Repair Cream ($28.00; Sephora)
A thick, rich, emollient cream that deeply hydrates dry parched skin with the help of colloidal oatmeal, shea butter, soothing eucalyptus oil and ceramides. It provides immediate relief and visible improvement for distressed skin.
