Shaving your legs may not seem like a difficult task. But do you know how to do it the right way? If you’re unsure, check out these tips for shaving legs.
I am not used to strip waxing my legs. So, I result to shaving them whenever I’m in the mood to wear a pair of shorts or when I’m wearing short dresses. Thankfully, though I am not a skilled “stripper”. However, I can say that I do a pretty good job when I shave my legs. In case you are like my sister who keeps on getting scratches here and there when she attempts to shave… So let me give you some tips for shaving legs that can keep your legs cut and bump-free.
Getting super sharp safety razors is among the primary things you have to do if you want to know how to shave with a safety razor. I recommend the use of razors with triple blades.
Also, let me tell you that you should change the blades regularly. Change it after using the five times at the most. Crude or dull razors would definitely result to cuts, scratches, and ingrown hair. Worse, you might spend hours shaving. As a result, it will only to end up with a not-so-smooth and barely shaved legs.
Aside from sharp razors, I suggest you wet your legs with warm (not hot) water three to five minutes before you start shaving. Use moisturizing shaving soaps or creams too. If you have none of those, then your hair conditioner will do.
In my opinion, if you want to know how to shave with a safety razor, the most important rule is – don’t shave in a hurry. If you are in a hurry, then might as well not shave at all than risk yourself of having nasty cuts and scratches.
After shaving, DO NOT scrub your legs with your loofa. Give your skin a break. Better yet, apply moisturizing lotion on your shaved skin.
In conclusion, I hope that these tips for shaving legs will help you avoid making the typical leg shaving mistakes.
