Thighs are some of the most misunderstood and maligned parts of the female anatomy, but that’s changing thanks to celebrities like Kim Kardashian and Miley Cyrus proudly flaunting theirs in public. Still, if you have any hesitation about displaying your thighs at all times, these six tips will make sure you never have to worry about negative comments again.
Exfoliate! This can be done with a scrub, brush, or even a loofah. Be careful not to go too hard and irritate the skin though. Scrubbing your thighs will help remove dead skin cells that have settled there, giving your legs a smoother appearance. If you use a loofah or brush, be sure to rinse it in between strokes so you don’t irritate the skin any further.
2) Use Sunscreen
Sunscreen is the best way to maintain the beauty of your thighs. It’s really important to apply sunscreen before you go outside and make sure you are reapplying every two hours. Sunscreen will protect your skin from the sun’s ultraviolet rays, which can cause hyperpigmentation or other discoloration on your skin, as well as wrinkles and even skin cancer.
3) Wear Compression Clothing
Compression clothing is designed to give you a better shape and help you get the most out of your workout. Compression clothing can also keep your muscles warm to prevent injury, promote faster recovery, and is often used for medical purposes. This type of clothing will help reduce the appearance of cellulite by smoothing out any dimpling in skin that may be caused by excess fat. When shopping for compression shorts or leggings it is important to find something that has a high level of compression (at least 20-30mmHg).
4) Drink Plenty of Water
Drinking plenty of water can help keep your skin hydrated and plump. Make sure to drink about eight glasses per day for optimal results. If you’re not a fan of the taste, try adding a lemon or cucumber slices to the water for a little flavor. Drinking water before meals is also helpful because it will make you feel fuller, which means less room for high calorie foods like french fries or pasta.
Pamper Yourself (five sentences)
Taking care of your body is important and pampering yourself will help ensure that you feel great on the inside and outside. Try getting massages, manicures, pedicures and other self-care treatments to show yourself some love when you need it most.
5) Eat Healthy Foods
Eating healthy foods is an important way to maintain the beauty of your thighs. Fruit and vegetables are rich in vitamins, minerals, and phytochemicals that have been shown to improve skin elasticity and reduce inflammation. Dairy products contain calcium which can help build strong bones while preventing osteoporosis-related bone fractures. Lean proteins such as white meat chicken, fish, and lean cuts of pork can be a great source of protein for those who avoid red meat.
6) Get Regular Exercise
One of the most important things you can do to maintain the beauty of your thighs is getting regular exercise. A good rule of thumb is to exercise at least three times a week, but it is best if you can work up to four or five days a week. Exercise will not only help keep your thighs strong and healthy, but it also helps with weight loss, blood circulation, and sleep quality.
