Last Week's Sun Catch You Out? Here's How to Prep Your Legs Fast


Stocksy/Ulas and Merve

In recent years, there's been a lot of talk about the subject of hair removal and whether it's feminist. I don't know about you, but how and why I prep my legs is really more of a time issue. I want smooth, tanned-looking legs because that's what I like for me, but I don't have a lot of time to be depilating and smoothing and tanning. So if I go out with hairy legs, it's a timing thing when a sunny day catches me out rather than a cultural statement.

During winter, I don't really take much notice of my legs, so I need a quick, effective action plan for when the sun strikes. Because, as we Brits know, the sun will often catch us off guard, and it's never long before the clouds are back in force and we're dragging our jeans over our fake-tanned limbs whilst sobbing into a rumpled cashmere jumper we didn't hand-wash because it's summer now (or is that whole scenario just me?).

If you're like me and your legs could do with a bit of attention before the next sunny spell then follow my six-step action plan to quickly and effectively prep your legs for summer.
