Tips To Get The Best Shave Of Your Life
Shaving your legs is just a part of life and the closer and smoother the shave feels the more satisfying it is. So let’s take a closer look at how to get the best shave possible and enjoy shaving again.
How To Shave
Water: The Temperature of your shower or bath water should be warm. Hot water leaches moisture from your skin and dries it out leaving your shave feel rough.
Timing: Shave at the end of your shower. Your hair and skin will have time to soften.
The Process: Start from your ankles and shave up. You want to make sure you are shaving against the hair growth. As for your underarms, shave at every angle. I have found that shaving up and down and then in an “X” does the trick.
Now let’s talk about what to shave with, because how to shave is only as good as the products your are using. First let’s look at some tips for buying a razor and then second we will look creative options for shaving gels.
Multiple Blades – Razors only have a few ways to try and set themselves apart so while there are definitely razors with more blades then you could need having at least 3 blades will create a closer shave with less nicks.
Moisturizer Bars – These are not just gimmicks, bars that contain aloe will give a boost of moisture right as the razor crosses over the skin.
Blade Replacement – There is not set timeline but definitely replace it as soon as you feel it tugging on your leg hairs and if you see any rust.
TIP – Try using the Gillette Venus handle, but not the blades. instead use your husband’s Gillette Mach 3 blades. Surprisingly they are compatible and gives a unique shave.
The Shaving Gel
Use Your conditioner – It gets a lot closer shave then shampoo and is a lot cheaper then shaving cream.
Using baby oil makes your razor last longer and get a close shave.
Shave your legs then use olive oil and sugar and shave again. It will moisturize and soften your skin.
