Smooth legs are something that many people strive for, but it seems so difficult sometimes to get the desired results. Shaving, waxing, applying lotions and creams, and everything else it seems to take can really consume a lot of time and take too much effort. It is no wonder that so many people get fed up with doing this routine over and over again, especially if they aren't sure how to do it most effectively.

Although getting perfectly smooth legs does seem to take a lot of effort, it doesn't have to be tedious. There are things you can do to create smooth legs without taking up a lot of your time or causing a lot of trouble.

To achieve smooth legs without a lot of fuss, give these ideas a try:

  • When shaving, use shaving cream or gel. Since shaving cream is designed to give you the closest shave and adds moisture to your skin, it will give you better results than other alternatives. Many people shave in the shower to help save time, and if you are in a hurry this might be a good option for you. Don't rush too much, though, or you might get nicks or cuts.
  • Don't use a razor that is too old when shaving. Over time, razors become dull and you might notice it takes longer to shave your legs, or that you have to go over areas more than once. Simply throwing out an old blade and replacing it every few weeks can cut down on the time it takes to shave.
  • If you don't like shaving to remove leg hair, you might consider a hair-removing lotion. There are many varieties, and they work with varying degrees of effectiveness for different people. When you try one of these lotions, be sure to test it on a small area of skin first to be certain you won't have an allergic reaction. Read the instructions carefully. Many of these lotions require you to wash them off after hair has been removed.
  • Moisturize daily with lotion. This is a quick step that you can add to your daily routine and see results immediately. Some lotions can even help hair grow in lighter or more slowly so you shave or wax less often.
  • Waxing is an alternative to shaving that you don't have to do as often. To make the waxing process as easy and trouble-free as possible, read all instructions before giving it a try. You also might consider going to a professional for a wax. Laser hair removal treatments are a more expensive but effective way to get smooth, long-lasting results.

With a few simple steps each day, it can be easy to keep your legs smooth.
