As soon as the weather starts to warm up, the temptation to ditch the black opaques becomes almost overwhelming. But, after keeping your legs more or less in hibernation throughout the coldest months, do you feel ready to bare them just yet? Here, follow Vogue’s four-step guide to prepping your legs for the big spring reveal.
Dry Body Brush: One of the most effective things you can do to prepare your legs to be bared is to use a dry body brush. Ideally it should be part of your regular beauty regime, but even doing it just once on an unexpectedly sunny morning will have immediate and visible benefits. Not only will using a dry brush slough off dead skin cells, it also helps to boost circulation.

Exfoliate: Ingrown hairs are another factor to bear in mind when it comes to baring your legs. If you are planning a spot of hair removal too then make sure you exfoliate first, using a gentle and non-drying scrub. And remember, no microbeads.
Aesop Redemption Body Scrub, Rs 2,020
Moisturise: Having well-hydrated, healthy-looking skin is perhaps the best route to bare-leg confidence, so pick a good all-purpose moisturiser. A fast-absorbing oil will add a subtle and flattering sheen, but beware of shimmer.
Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour All-Over Miracle Oil, Rs 2,350
Perfect: A tinted body product is a quick and simple way to improve skin tone and add a bit of colour where required, without having to commit to weeks of gradual tan application or the fear of creating unsightly streaks with an instant fake tan. Mix with aforementioned moisturiser for an even more subtle effect.
