Summer is arguably the year’s most carefree season, yet keeping legs ready for skimpy skirts and shorts is anything but easy breezy. With that in mind, we hunted down every essential to get our legs looking smooth, soft, and glowing from now til the year's end.
Clinique Sparkle Skin Body Exfoliator
Most body exfoliators either aren’t scrubby enough to remove rough skin or they leave you feel like you’ve taken a sheet of sandpaper to your calves. This one, however, strikes the right balance of super gentle and super exfoliating.

Proraso Shaving Soap in a Bowl Sensitive Skin Formula
Sure, you can squirt out a dollop of shave foam from a can, slap it on your legs before shaving and be done with it, but going old school with a shaving soap and brush feels a lot more luxurious and gives a far smoother, far better shave.
Venus Swirl Razor with 5 Refill Blades
A troupe of four blades gives the closest shave possible in a single sweep. And since these razors are refillable, they’re leagues less eco-hostile than your standard disposable.
Alba Very Emollient Body Lotion
This gentle lotion manages to leave skin hydrated without fragrances that can trigger post-shave flare ups.
Soap and Glory Sit Tight Super Intense 4D Firming + Smoothing Body Serum
No cream will permanently rid you of dimples, but this serum does a pretty remarkable job of moisturizing skin and minimizing surface puff responsible for casting cellulite’s lumps and bumps in high definition.
Jergens Natural Glow 3 Days to Glow Moisturizer
This cream isn’t nearly as fun as a three-day escape to the tropics, but it leaves skin looking just as perfectly bronzed—minus the sun’s aging rays.
The Body Shop Honey Bronze Shimmering Dry Oil
The quickest of fixes, this shimmer-oil gives legs a bronzy glow without leaving them feeling greased up.
Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs
If there were an Instagram filter for legs, this would be it. Mist it on to create a perfectly even coverage that disguises everything from spider veins to bruises.
Charlotte Tilbury Supermodel Body Highligher
One upping a standard leg camouflaging product, this one adds a luminizer into the mix leaving legs smooth and glowing.
Dermablend Leg and Body Makeup
No matter how many tasty mosquitoes find you, you can hide the evidence (if not the itch) by daubing this waterproof concealer onto bites.
