How do you get smooth, silky, summer-ready legs?
Are your legs ready for skirts, shorts & sundresses? Did you ignore your legs all winter? Maybe you didn't exfoliate regularly. Perhaps you didn't moisturize enough.
If your legs look dry, dull, and flaky, we can help with just 3 simple steps to healthy summer legs!
1. Prep your legs for shaving with gentle exfoliation. You can easily make a scrub at home. Everyone need to exfoliate - or slough off dead skin cells. If you don't remove the dead skin cells, they will accumulate. When this happens, skin is left dull, while pores become clogged.
Simply make an oil and sugar or salt mixture and Voila! You can mix sea salt or turbinado sugar with an oil such as grape seed or sunflower. Even olive oil from your kitchen will work! You can make it as oily or as dry & coarse as you'd like. Apply to damp skin in circular motions and rinse off. Now your skin is ready for the next step!
2. Choose a natural shaving product to shave your legs. Our fragrance free Seed Shaving Bar is perfect for getting those legs silky smooth. Why? A close and comfortable shave every time, plus the moisturizing benefits old-school canister of foamy shaving cream just cannot come close to providing.
Did you know that people tell us their blades last longer after using our bar? You decide! The grape seed oil, shea butter, aloe vera and evening primrose oil will pamper even the most sensitive skin types.The ingredients in traditional canned shaving cream serve no benefit to the skin and can cause irritation. Seed is different -- try it out and see for yourself!
3. After rinsing your legs thoroughly post-shaving, it's time to moisturize! It's hot; it's humid. Let's use some lightweight -- but still highly nourishing -- Seed Body Lotion. Our lotions are rich in protective antioxidants to protect and soothe the skin. The natural, plant-based oils will leave your legs looking and feeling healthy and silky. You can choose from our Fragrance Free or Lavender Sage lotions, choose among our many Beneficial Blends or you can even create your own custom blend.
Can I make a confession? My favorite blend for summer is Grapefruit and Peppermint. It is tart, yet sweet and has a cooling and refreshing peppermint twist. I cannot get enough!

We've all heard about the "Freshman 15." I gained about 7 pounds freshman year. I can tell you that I had many choices in the dining hall, but my mom wasn't there to make sure I ate my fruits and veggies. I loaded up on macaroni and cheese and mashed potatoes.
