Shaving is one thing that all of us either do, don’t do or intend to do but go weeks (and months) without doing it. Any way you like to approach bodily hair is the right way, but if you’re looking to have a more fuss-free shave, here are some helpful tips.
Exfoliate To Release Ingrown Hairs
Ingrown hairs are a real pain, and on some occasions, they can be really uncomfortable to have. Exfoliating is a great way of exposing your hairs before shaving, and the more you scrub at the dead skin and the base of the hair follicles, the easier it will come out. Hopefully, you won’t get stubble for a while either because the more hair in the follicle that you can remove, the better the result. Use the exfoliator while you are in the shower, making sure to use warm water too.
Go Lightly With The Razor
The razor is a sharp object, and many of us can forget that as long as you’ve shaving with the right angle, it will remove your hair. Going too heavily on your skin and pushing down will end up causing razor cuts and rashes, neither are very comfortable or appealing to deal with afterwards. Go lightly with the razor and remove to take it nice and slowly around the more delicate areas like your bikini line, your armpits and also your ankles and knees. Whether there’s skin stretched over bone, it makes it more vulnerable to getting nipped, so take your time.
Try Out Hair Removal Creams
If you’ve never tried hair removal creams before, then now is the best time to try them out. It’s a quick and easy way to remove hair and should it be suitable for your skin, it’s painless. As hair removal cream dissolves the hair follicles, it’s essential that you do a patch test to make sure your skin doesn’t react badly to the product. If you have really sensitive skin, then you may struggle, but it’s worth trying a few out before you dismiss the product completely. This form of shaving is completely fuss-free, and it’s a wonderful experience to only need a few minutes until you simply wash it off in the shower and instantly you have bare legs.
Perfect A Technique That Works For You
There are a variety of techniques out there when it comes to shaving and having your own is important because all our bodies are different. Try out different shaving creams, or perhaps waxing to see if that’s your preferred method. When shaving, you might want to consider all the different razors that are available and picking the one that’s going to give you the closest shave and the best feel of smooth, healthy legs.
A fuss-free shave sounds impossible, but if you’re willing to do the prep or try something different, then you can make the whole process a lot easier. Always make sure to exfoliate and prep the skin, no matter what technique or way you end up using.
