With summer here, it’s finally shorts, t-shirt, and bathing suit weather making a smooth long-lasting shave top priority. To help you avoid any bloody massacres in the shower and to keep your skin look an feel it’s best, we’re sharing our best summer shaving tips.
Use the Right Tools
Whether you’re utilizing a men’s or women’s razor, be sure to use the right kind. Save the disposable razors as your last resort. If you have thicker hair, use a men’s razor as the blades are manufactured to be closer together to help with those thick, coarse hairs!
Exfoliating your skin should be your top priority in every shower. This is how you get rid of dead skin cells, open your pores, and eliminate any dirt. Exfoliating your skin will also help you achieve skin softer than a baby’s bottom and when you’re going to be out in shorts or a bathing suit, this is crucial!
Shave at the End of Your Shower
Always leave shaving your legs and bikini area as the very last step in your showering routine. During the shower itself, the hot water and steam are slowly opening each pore on your body and cleansing the top layer of your skin. This will help you get as close to the hair follicle as possible, meaning you’ll get a baby-soft shave, every time!
Run out of shaving cream? Avoid using soap to shave! Soap is naturally drying and won’t help much during your shave. Instead, opt for conditioner, coconut oil, or a thick body cream to achieve those soft legs.
Shave Downward, Than Upward
When you shave, always shave down first and then shave upward. This will help shave your legs in the way of hair growth, giving you a clean shave every time.
Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize
Post-shower, moisturize immediately to lock in any moisture from your shower. This will keep your legs soft and smooth as well as give them that glistening look we all yearn for.
