Somehow SHAVING for women has not been easy. I used to wax my body but then I dint like the fact that I had to wait a till my hairs grow back completely for next wax. It used to annoy me and that’s when I gave shaving a try and found the best way to get the closest shave without any itchiness and dryness.
So, here I am sharing with you all my best technique to shave,
Step 1: Soak In a Hot Shower
Start by prepping your leg. I recommend shaving towards end of your shower and the reason is because the longer you are in the shower the hot water opens up your pores and this makes shaving a lot more easier and gives a much closer shave.
Step 2: Exfoliation
Exfoliating is really important. Use a loofah or an exfoliator and this will give you a nicer finish look and remove the dead and dry skin cells. I like to use my DIY Body Scrub Using Coconut Oil because that gives me a really smooth and soft feel to my dry legs.
Step 3: Use a Shaving Cream
No matter how in a hurry you may be, never shave “dry.” Use some good shaving cream to make sure the razor glides easily over your skin. Hair conditioner will do just as good a job.
Step 4: Use a Good quality Women’s Razor
Use a good quality razor with at least 4 blades. A big no to those single blade razor and if you are using disposable razors just use for couple times and dispose it off. Never use disposable razors more than twice because they might give you cuts and nicks. Always skip Men’s razor for shaving. I highly recommend using a women’s razor because they are gentler.
Step 5: Shave Upwards
Always shave upward against the direction of hair growth. This is will give you a cleaner and closer shave. Rinse your razor after each stroke because it just clogs your razor and doesn’t work really well.
Step 6: Moisturize
After the whole shaving process is done rinse your leg and treat your skin with a good moisturizer. I like to use by Bath & Body Works Body Cream because it gives that nourishment and moisturizes my dry skin really well.
I use this same method for shaving my arms and underarms as well.
Hope you guys liked it 🙂 Let me know your thoughts on this. Have a great week !!
