Shaving tips


Today, women are increasingly opting for epilation and laser hair removal.  However, shaving remains the most popular form of hair removal.
Here are some shaving tips and tricks:
  • Do not shave dry skin.  Shaving is a natural exfoliator and if you shave dry skin, you risk clogging up the razor with dead skin.  This may result in nicks, ingrown hair and razor burns.
  • Only use shaving cream recommended for women, not soap!  Leave the shaving cream on for 3-4 minutes to soften up the hair.  


  • Experiment with razors until you find the perfect one for you.  Look for a razor with lubricated strips, pivoting heads and multiple blades. 
  • Be sure to change razors or cartridges on a regular basis; a dull blade can lead to nicks and irritation.
  • Be sure to exfoliate your skin before shaving.  This gets rid of dead skin cells, allowing a closer shave. There are several ways to exfoliate.
  • Since your leg hairs grow down, start at your ankles and shave up.  For your underarms, shave in every direction since the hair there grows in at different angles.  
  • When finished shaving; rinse, pad dry and apply moisturiser.  
  • Ingrown hairs are caused when the hairs curl back under the skin.  Avoid ingrown hairs by exfoliating daily.  Read this post for more information: Removing and preventing ingrown hair
  • If you have coarse hair, consider waxing or sugaring.  You'll find that in time, hair won't grow back as fast.  Read this post for more information: Sugaring vs. Waxing
