Shaving is a pain for many reasons. Not only is it annoying because of how often you have to do it, but also how long it takes each time. And trying to save time and shave fast by running your razor over your legs quickly can only result in irritated skin and cuts. Here are a few things you can do to reduce the time it takes to shave so that you have more time for things you actually WANT to do.k2-_41eb30ee-5a08-4738-8f39-85ba7db68b2d.v1

  1. Use a razor with built-in shaving cream. This allows you to skip the “shaving cream” step of the shave. All you need is water and you are all set.
  2. Prep your skin: Exfoliate in between shaves. Exfoliate, then wait a few days to shave. Your shave will feel way faster when you have scrubbed all of the dead skin off of your legs, and exfoliating preps your skin for a closer shave.
  3. Use less shaving cream: Always use shaving cream because it prevents cuts and nicks, but only use a thin layer. Having too much shaving cream on your legs slows you down by clogging the blades!

Shaving doesn’t have to be an annoyance! Just follow these tips to help speed up the process.

Whether it’s with your college roommate or at a sleepover, it’s easy to get beauty products mixed up or forget to bring your own. Sharing anything from makeup to facewash doesn’t sound like a big deal, right? Wrong! Using other’s beauty products spreads bacteria and can even lead to infection! Check out which products should be avoided!Chelsea Crockett- sharing mascara

  • Eye makeup and mascara are the very worst to share with friends. Since your eye is watery, it is a trap for bacteria. Avoid an eye infection by keeping your eye makeup to yourself!
  • Admit it; most of us are guilty of not cleaning our makeup brushes. Brushes can hold on to bacteria and dirt, which can make yours or a friends face breakout!
  • Cold sores, sore throats, and other sicknesses can be transferred through lip gloss and lipstick! Keep those to yourself!
  • Facial cleansing brushes are a no-go when it comes to sharing. This can lead to a skin infection, especially if you have any type of rash or acne prone area! Anything that touches open sores shouldn’t be shared!
  • Razors are never meant to be shared…I mean, do I even need to go into detail on this one?

If reading this doesn’t make you want to keep your beauty products to yourself, then I don’t know what does! Let’s practice safe beauty!

XOXO,

Now that we are in the warm weather season, one thing is clear: we have to start shaving our legs again. It is so nice to take a few days (okay weeks) off of shaving during the winter months. I am always looking for ways to cut down my shaving time/frequency, and here are the tricks that have served me well!

  1. Go against the grain: A easy trick to shave less is to shave against the grain of your hair. This ensures that you are getting the closest shave possible and saves you time by not having to go over the same spot twice!Shaving Tips For Woman(1)
  2. Exfoliate: To get a close shave every time you should exfoliate your skin often. This gets rid of the dead skin and also exposes any hairs that you may have missed.
  3. Condition: Use conditioner instead of shaving cream! Not only will it save you money, it also keeps your skin soft and healthy!
  4. Cut the carbs: The foods you eat can actually promote access hair growth! Carbs do this. Cut back on the carbs to keep you hair from growing so you can shave less often.

Now you can have silky smooth legs all summer long!

Girls can all agree on one thing… shaving. It’s a pain and we don’t want to do it! Besides the time it takes every couple of days, potential cuts and burns are bad enough. There are not only ways to prevent these burns but ways to soothe them as well. Here are a few to help you out!Chelsea Crockett - Honey

  • One of the most common ways to soothe your burns is with cold compresses like an ice pack. This will tone down the inflammation and help cool off your burn.
  • Aloe Vera not only helps sunburns but razor burns as well! It might not be the first thing you think of when you step out of the shower, but it’s soothing and promotes healing!
  • Have you ever considered honey? Applying some honey to your burn actually helps bring down swelling and alleviate any pain. Who knew :)?
  • Old fashion remedies are often the best! So… try out the traditional baking soda trick. It’ll help bring down any redness on your skin. (Also, if you burn starts to itch, you can mix together some baking soda and water then apply it to your skin with a cotton ball or washcloth!)
  • Cucumber! Ever wonder why you put this on your eyes during a facial? It rejuvenates skin and helps moisturize it! Rub a few slices of cucumber on your burn and feel its magic.

Although these are a few of my favorite remedies, you probably have a few of your own! Share your secrets down below :)!
