Most women prefer waxing as a means to make their legs and underarms smoother, but a good shave is the next best alternative. With the right techniques and the proper tool, shaving can be a good option for your hair removal needs. Don't have time to get waxed? Here's how you can keep your skin smooth:
1. Take a shower before you shave.
This will soften the hair and open up the pores, preventing strawberry skin. Bathe using warm water and prep your legs after three to four minutes.
2. Use a gentle scrub.
You can also use a loofah and a mild body wash to scrub off dead skin cells. Waxing helps get rid of this layer, but you can also achieve the same results if you scrub before shaving. Focus on the parts where the pores are particularly noticeable.
3. Use the right razor.
Go for a razor specifically designed for women and follows the curves of your skin, such as the NEW Gillette Venus Spa. Unlike other razors which can cause nicks and irritation, this product has three blades and built-in moisture bars to help it glide better over the skin, allowing you to achieve an instantly smooth shave! It also lathers on its own once water is added, and gives off a fresh, white tea scent to soothe your senses for a pampering and spa-like experience.
This razor has an ergonomic design and pivoting head to ensure you're in control of your shave and feel smooth all over. It is gentle on the skin, too, so you can say goodbye to pain or irritation brought about by waxing.
4. Use short strokes.
This will help give you a closer shave when working on areas like the knees. Bending your knees while shaving can also give you a better shave since it stretches the skin and lets you cover everything easier.
5. Follow the direction of your hair growth.
Prevent stubbly hair by shaving along the direction of your hair growth. This can also prevent dark, unsightly pores because there is less chance of snapping your strands if you follow their natural growth.
