As the weather heats up and winter wardrobe layers come off, legs usually require some extra love and attention to get them sidewalk-ready. Blogger Sophie Elkus of Angel Food is a Los Angeles native, and her affinity for skirts and shorts (and L.A.’s enviable year-round sunny weather) make her an expert on how to prep your gams for primetime. From exfoliator to aloe, Elkus shares her tips and favorite products below. Keep scrolling to get her look.
Elkus uses St. Ives Oatmeal Body Scrub on her legs in the shower before tanning to slough off any dead skin and get that smooth, silky feeling.
Elkus swears by Vaseline Intensive Care Spray Moisturizer for hydrated skin. It’s essentially the power of Vaseline in a can, but the spray factor delivers non-greasy hydration that absorbs in seconds.
Elkus uses Vaseline Aloe Soothe Lotion after tanning, even when she’s not sunburned, to calm any irritation, and she carries it with her for emergencies.
