5 Simple Steps To A Smooth Shave

Having silky smooth legs isn’t always as easy as just grabbing a razor and shaving. Shaving is probably the most convenient and popular method of hair removal for men and women alike. If done properly, it’s easy and pain-free. While there are many different skin areas to shave, there are a few basic rules that everyone should follow when shaving, but why? Shaving can dry your skin out if you don’t do it properly and you can subject yourself to unwanted nicks and cuts. You probably won’t be shaving every single day so when you, do make sure you follow the below steps to ensure your skin stays smooth and in great condition.

 Exfoliate

When the time has come for your weekly grooming session and you need to shave your pins the first thing you should do in the bath or shower is exfoliate. A good quality body scrub and an exfoliating mitt are the idea tools. Exfoliate your legs and rinse off with shower water, this will ensure you have a smooth canvas to work with free of any dead skin cells and dry skin which may catch on the razor.

 Use a great shaving cream

The next step in shaving properly is to apply your shaving cream. The benefit of doing this is that the cream will add moisture back to your legs making it easy to shave and glide over the skin. Also the cream will act as a guide to the areas which you have shaved and which you have left. Rinse your razor every few strokes to clean it.

 Stroke gently over your legs

When shaving your legs for example, make sure you start from the ankles and in gentle, single movements shave upwards towards your knee. Resist the urge to apply unnecessary pressure.

 Rinse off the product

Once you have shaved your legs give them a good rinse in luke warm water, try to make sure the water isn’t really hot as this can cause your skin to dry out. Finish with a luxurious body wash to rinse away any residue and check for any patches you may have missed. If you have missed any go over them again.

 The finished product

After you have left the bath or shower you need to look after the skin that you have shaved. Use a luxurious body oil or rich moisturizer and generously apply to the shaved areas and massage in circular motions. This will help the skin recover and give it back that much needed moisture. Shaving can often dry out your skin so it’s important you take care of it the correct way.

 Once you have finished, rinse, clean and dry your razor so it is ready to be used again next time. Stainless steel blades also have the potential to oxidize to some degree if they come in contact with water. Do your best to slow the oxidation process down by thoroughly drying your razor blade after use and storing it somewhere safe away from water.
