I’m excited to partner with Schick Intuition to help you get your legs in formation this summer #schickambassador
Growing up my legs were always a source of conversation. Too skinny. Chicken legs. knobby knees, etc. Despite this, I’ve always loved my legs. They helped me zoom to the finish line at track meets in high school and college. They helped me run away (literally) from scary bad dates and dance the night away in manhattan clubs during my teens and 20s. Being a fitness junkie now, I love leg day. I love pushing heavy weight and feeling strong all from leg power… even though the days afterward I’m like…

Here’s how you can get your legs in formation this summer. After this we’ll have sexy shapely soft smooth legs!
- Work em out
- Smooth em out
- (optional) Tan em up
- Dress em up
I love doing my 30 minute Lower Body Fix workout from 21 day fix. Autumn works my legs out well. You can do a quick search for leg workouts and pull up a large assortment. Otherwise, you can do a quick workout that will burn those legs and booty. This is my go-to when I don’t have much time.
One minute each of:
- squats with leg raise
- forward lunges alternating leg
- calf raises
- sumo squats
Do as many as you can in perfect form for a minute and take a minute rest in between. (during that “rest” minute feel free to walk around or do some crunches if you’re feelin’ froggy)
Smooth Your Legs:
Keeping legs smooth starts with exfoliating. Using scrubbing brushes or a body scrub works well. Then we’ve got to remove the hair. Schick sent over their new Intuition with shave cream built right into it. I tried the razor for the first time, after using my John’s manly ones all the time. The intuition’s lavender handle is ergonomic and just looks way cuter. The head pivots to give you a nice close shave. (John’s razors don’t pivot.) After you’re smoothed out and hair free we need to moisturize. Use a thick moisturizer to keep dryness at bay. This step is optional if you have used Schick Intuition Pure Nourishment since it has coconut milk and almond oil to help moisturize your situation.
“It’s a simple and fast way to achieve smooth, beautiful legs at home or on vacation.”
– Dr. Annie Chiu, Schick Partner Dermatologist
Tan em up:
(This step is also optional for those with melanin) Please don’t let the sun fry your legs, girls. Use a self tanner to get your legs all glowy and sexified the safe way. Follow the directions to the T, and check the tutorials online for insider tips to make your results even better. If you’re not into tanned legs or you have natural color, try a lotion with some shimmer to ad a lil sumthin’ sumthin’ to legs.
Dress em up:
This is the fun part. Pop on your short shorts to show off your hard work! Legs not in goal shape yet…pop on your highest heel to help highlight how well you’ve done so far. Then struuuut. (optional: weeerrk)
