Khloé Kardashian’s legs have been in the spotlight a lot these days since the launch of her Good American denim line. Bronzed and looking perfectly airbrushed, just how is she, along with other supermodels, able to maintain photo-ready legs? We reveal top 5 ways to get supermodel legs below.
1) Look Smooth
First and foremost, unsightly leg hair needs to go if you desire supermodel legs (designers already have a lot on their plates aside from having to photoshop out the fuzz). If your leg hairs are non-existent, lucky you! While we’re not against anyone wearing their leg hair like trophies, challenging conventional beauty standards like Paris Jackson, many better appreciate clean and smooth legs.
So, shave regularly. Alternatively, sign up for laser hair removals which are less tedious and more rewarding in terms of fuzz-free days. Soprano Ice Permanent Laser Hair Removal at SW1 Clinic, one of the largest aesthetic clinics in Singapore, utilises one of the most powerful yet gentle hair removal devices with not one but three different wavelengths to destroy hair follicles.
“The Soprano ICE is superior to traditional lasers in two ways: it can be used even on tanned skin and is able to effectively target lighter coloured hair,” says Dr Low Chai Ling, Founder of SW1 Clinic. Smooth legs unlocked!
2) Look Toned
The next to go to achieve Khloé Kardashian’s legs is excess fat (the kind that jiggles). Fatty thighs with big calves are less appealing. That being said, they are also not alluring if they are stick-thin. Ideally, legs should be proportionate to a shapely body which then indicates good health and sensuality.
Start clocking those miles! Aerobic exercises such as walking, running and cycling can slim down thighs. Add three sets of ten calf raises where you rise onto the balls of your feet and then lower it again to strengthen calf muscles and improve their appearance.
Speed up the transformation with Coolshape or Coolsculpting which destroys fat cells by freezing them in a process known as Cryolipolysis. Pair that with Dream Body Tone, which uses a vibro-massage core to clear out broken down fat cells and you’ll attain slimmer, toned legs in no time.

3) Erase Veins
Spider veins and varicose veins are the bane of ladies who desire stunning legs. Primarily caused by backup of blood which can be a result of genetics, hormonal changes, smoke, sun exposure and injuries, studies also show that about 55% of women have a vein problem. This means spider veins are not rare occurrences. How is it then that the legs of supermodels like Khloé Kardashian’s look so flawless?
The key is exercising and running, which improves blood circulation. Good habits such as not smoking also reduces the possibility of spider vein formations. Sclerotherapy is a non-surgical procedure that effectively erases these veins. It uses tiny injections to deliver sclerosant solution into veins, inducing your body to absorb them. In a matter of weeks, you’ll be loving your newfound beautiful and youthful-looking legs.
4) Leg Care
After tackling unpleasant skin woes affecting legs from the inside, we prepare for photo-ready legs from the outside. Even if you’ve an attractively slim pair of legs not marred by thick hair or veins, neglecting care will dull your legs. Dead cells that pile up can rob skin of vibrancy and dry skin on legs appear dehydrated and rough.
Prime skin by first exfoliating with a gentle scrub to restore shine to legs. Moisturise skin with a rich cream to deeply nourish and replenish for supple, smooth and healthy skin.

5) Up Appeal
Photoshoots are a different ball game; the less imperfections the better. Like how we put on makeup, legs could do with some too! Kardashian revealed her obsession with Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs, a body foundation designed to spray easily along the legs. She posted that she uses it to cover little veins and give her legs an even and glowy effect, immediately increasing leg appeal.Top it off with a pair of heels and your legs will easily be the highlight.
So, there you have it ladies, we hope you’re one step closer to enviable legs that are smooth and luminous.
