Shaving your legs can be such a task, only if you are not doing it right. Keeping in mind all the myths that surround it about the process not being the best option for clean legs because of the thicker comeback and undergrowth and whatnot, I still think it’s pretty easy and very effective practice when you actually want clean legs every day. Plus, it’s cheaper too! You don’t have to spend so much on waxing, nor do you have to wait for your hair to grow back enough so you can get your waxing done
To get that smooth and shiny feel and look for your legs, not just for a nice summer day at the pool or beach, but every single day, a razor is your best friend. But you gotta know how to do it right, because otherwise, it will be as bad as everyone tells you it is.
Here are some tips for you to get the best experience out of shaving your legs. You are not going to regret reading this. Trust me.
- Get a good razor that has flexible bending
Do not compromise on your choice of razor. Get a good razor for women, like Gillette, which is one of the best ones that are out there. They have sharp blades but since they come with protection around the blade and are flexible as you glide them through your legs, they give you the best results.
- Use conditioner on your skin as prep for shaving
When you use conditioner on the area you are going to shave as prep, it helps soften the hair which makes the shaving process a real smooth one. Apply your skin conditioner onto your legs and rinse it off after about 10 minutes.
- Use your body scrub instead of normal soap
If you use normal soap to lather up your legs before you start shaving, stop it. Use your body scrub instead. I’ll tell you why it’s better. When you use a body scrub, your skin opens up the pores better and also helps in the removal of the dead skin on your legs. This way, you get a better shave, a clean shave. Just try to avoid scrubs that have nuts in them as they can prove to be a little rough.
- Short strokes give better results
While it is easier to do long strokes and get the shaving done quickly, it is always better to keep your strokes short. This helps in getting a cleaner shave and also, you won’t miss out on any patch. As a plus point, short strokes also reduce the risks of razor cuts and the development of ingrown hair.
- Lotion your skin right after shaving
This is a crucial part of the whole process. After you are done shaving, NEVER forget to moisturize your skin with a good lotion. This helps reduce any kind of burns, irritation or dryness of skin and gives your legs the smooth and shiny feel you never want to stop having. It helps rejuvenate your skin and keep your legs healthy and happy!
