By now, you probably already have a solid skincare routine for your face, but have you ever considered starting one for your body? 

Skincare peeves can appear anywhere on the body. Your legs, for instance, are prone to dryness and pigmentation due to sun exposure and even shaving


If you want to give your legs some TLC, here's a simple routine you can try:

1. Exfoliate in the shower.

Like your face, your body accumulates dead skin cells. This buildup causes your skin to feel rough and appear dull. 

While in the shower, gently massage a body scrub on your legs, knees, and even your elbows. Doing this at least once a week won't only soften your skin but also help even out pigmentation, too!

Optional: Dry brush your legs

If you're not familiar with dry brushing, it basically works by gently rubbing a soft-bristled brush over the body. Like using a body scrub, dry brushing helps remove dead skin cells to make the skin feel softer and smoother. Heart Evangelista swears by this beauty trick, too! 

2. Cleanse with a brightening soap. 

If you want to fade those dark spots on your legs, using a soap that contains fruit extracts like papaya and calamansi can speed up the process! 


3. Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize! 

After cleansing or exfoliating, always moisturize. It's best to apply lotion while your skin is still damp—this will help lock in moisture. 

P.S. Applying scented body lotions before bedtime can help you relax, too!
