Our legs go through a lot. Aside from being exposed to dirt, bacteria, and pollution, they're also constantly shaved, waxed, and bitten by mosquitoes. All of those can lead to bumpy, scarred gams. If you want them to always look their best, scroll down to see the best skincare regimen you can do!

Gently scrub your legs with a loofah while bathing

The physical exfoliation will get rid of dead skin cells, clogged pores, and ingrown hairs that may have formed. Reminder: Do not roughly scrub a loofah on your skin! This will only lead to redness and irritation.

Use sulfur soap to prevent blemishes from forming

If you constantly wax or shave your legs, you've most likely experienced rashes, irritation, ingrown hairs, and even pimples. You can avoid all those problems by regularly washing your legs with sulfur soap! It removes dead skin cells and kills the bacteria that cause the abovementioned blemishes. Sulfur soap is also an excellent product for treating skin conditions like eczema because it soothes and stops itching

Even out dark knees with a brightening soap

Dark knees are often caused by dirt, buildup of dead skin, and dryness. While using a loofah can help slough the layers of dark dead skin, a brightening soap is still your best bet! It moisturizes your tuhod, and its acids gently remove dead skin to make way for fairer and newer skin cells.

Dab a scar treatment on the affected areas

Constantly scratching or picking at your legs can lead to dark scars and marks. To reduce their appearance, massage a tiny bit of healing body oil or ointment on the area at least twice a day.TRY: Bio-Oil Skincare Oil, P520/60ml, Lazada

Generously apply sunscreen before heading out

Just like your face, your legs (and arms) need protection from the sun, too. Always use a sunscreen with at least SPF30 before sun exposure to protect them and prevent scars and knees from getting darker.TRY: Kojie San Sunblock SPF69 Body, P360, Lazada
