With the insanely hot weather we’ve been getting over here on the east coast for the past couple of weeks, it’s been the perfect time to whip out the bikinis, mini skirts and shorts and I wanted to share some quick little tips with you guys that I have been using to keep my legs as smooth and soft as possible!
Firstly, the most important thing is that you’re using a clean, sharp razor. I use the Gillette Venus Embrace which is perfect for shaving your legs because it has a large head with five blades allowing it to cover a larger area and makes for a much faster shave. It is important to rinse your razor thoroughly after every shave and change your razor head (or razor itself if you’re using disposables) as soon as you notice it getting dull. A dirty and dull razor won’t only prevent you from getting a smooth shave, but is also very unhygienic and can cause cuts and infections.
Another trick is to switch out your shaving cream or soap that you usually use for shaving, which can be quite drying, and use hair conditioner instead. Conditioner softens the leg hair allowing the razor to cut it more easily and also the moisturizers in the product leave your legs feeling as smooth as a baby’s bottom! The hair conditioner that I’ve been using recently for my legs is the Herbal Essences Hello Hydration Moisturizing Conditioner, simply because I had a sample bottle of it lying around and I figured that I might as well use it. Any conditioner will work though!
Hope these tips were helpful and if you have any summer beauty tips of your own, please share them in the comments below!
