Your shaving technique determines how quickly your hair grows back: with these 7 tips, you can make it last longer!
Of all the hair removal methods, you’ve opted for the razor? Did you know that your shaving routine determines how long your legs will stay smooth and hair-free? Here are 7 tips to reduce your shaving frequency to enjoy smooth, beautiful legs longer!
1. EXFOLIATE YOUR LEGS
Exfoliation is good for your skin! The day before you shave, exfoliate your skin. This way, you remove your dead skin, which allows you to shave more closely. Your little hairs won’t stand a chance! Discover our recipe for exfoliation made in Marrakech.
2. TAKE A SHOWER
Shower before shaving, while avoiding the 5 typical shower mistakes. Showering allows you to remove all traces of natural oil and sweat, while moisturizing your hair, which will facilitate shaving. Two to five minutes is enough, because beyond that, your skin may swell and wrinkle. The effect will be the opposite of what you want and you won’t be able to shave as close to the skin as possible.
3. CHOOSE A SHARP RAZOR
Make sure your razor is still of good quality with sharp blades to get a close shave. It is recommended that you replace your razor about every ten uses and remember that a razor is a beauty product that you cannot share. If you tend to have dry skin, opt for a razor with a moisturizing strip.
4. USE A MOISTURIZING GEL
Use moisturizing shaving gel and definitely not soap! Soap gets on your razor blades, making it hard to shave – especially since many soaps dry out the skin. So there’s no benefit to using soap when shaving!
5. SAVE THE HARDEST FOR LAST
Take care of the hardest-to-shave areas last. Knees, inner thighs and ankles are close to the bone, so you’ll need to give these areas a lot of attention when shaving.
6. CLEAN UP AFTER SHAVING
After shaving, it is essential to cleanse and moisturize your skin. Your body may remain slightly damp after drying, so you’ll catch that extra moisture with your moisturizer when you apply it to your legs. This way, you’ll ensure beautiful skin!
7. TREAT WITH A BODY LOTION
When choosing your body lotions, choose products that are fragrance-free. Coconut oil and baby oil will prove to be good choices. This way, you nourish your skin after having attacked it and you close your pores: an excellent prevention against redness and other skin problems!
