Now that we are approaching 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!
  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 excess 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!

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.

If you follow me on Snapchat or Instagram, then you know I recently took a much needed vacay to Hawaii! But, you don’t need to be on a beach vacay to realize the importance of having soft, shaved legs. Some say there is no right way to shave your legs, but I beg to differ! Here are 5 little known facts about shaving your legs and how to get the best shave ever!images (6)

  1. Round up the right razor: Finding the right razor is the first step in getting your perfect shave. The perfect razor has more blades, which means less going over the same spot over and over.
  2. Shorter strokes: When it comes to shaving, the shorter the strokes the best results.
  3. Worth the wait: It is best to wait until then end of your shower to shave your legs. The steam and heat of the water help soften your hair which helps make shaving a breeze.
  4. Hydrate: Moisture is key! Moisturizing your legs helps prevent ingrown hairs and rashes.
  5. Protect: Your legs need sun protection too. After shaving, your skin is bare to the sun, so use a moisturizer that has spf!

Strut your smooth legs this summer!
