The first step to shaving the legs is to take a warm shower.
However, do not just get into the shower and grab the razor because the warm water will soften the hair and make the skin tight.
Before it is time to shave, the layer of dead skin cells must be removed first.
A loofa sponge with soap can scrub away the dead skin, and leave the legs soft and ready for hair removal.
A thick layer of shaving cream or gel is going to protect the skin from the blade.
The lather should go from the ankles to the top of the thighs. Once the legs are covered with the cream, let it sit on the skin for about five to ten minutes.
The razor should be pressed to the ankle, but not with too much pressure because it can cause a cut. Using a long stroke, the razor should be glided along the skin to the knee.
The razor should then be rinsed with hot water to ensure the blades are clean. A woman should keep using long strokes until the entire leg has been shaved before moving on to the other leg.
The shape of the knee makes it very tricky to shave. The best way to avoid cutting the skin is to shave the knee in many different ways.
The knee should be bent before it is shaved, and then the knee should be straightened and inspected to see if there is any hair that was missed.
After the shaving is done, rinse off and finish the shower. The legs should be gently patted dry with a towel.
Drying off the legs in a harsh way after shaving can cause skin irritation.
Do not dry the legs completely because after a shower is the best time to use moisturizing lotion.
The warmth of the water will make the pores on the legs open up, and using a lotion will help keep the skin soft and supple. There are many different kinds of lotions on the market for shaving, but even baby oil would be a good way to moisturize the skin.
Shaving the legs is a necessary part of every woman’s life. However, to keep the legs looking their best, a woman should take great care when she shaves.
By using warm water, exfoliating the skin, using shaving cream, and shaving with long even strokes, woman can remove the hair from her legs without any cuts, scrapes, or skin irritation.
