Your skin is your largest organ, and it’s the part of you that gets to see the world. It’s important to take care of it – especially when shaving your legs, arms or bikini area. So, how do you keep your skin feeling touchably soft and smooth? It’s simple if you know the following shaving tips for women. Just take it one step at a time, and you’ll have smooth skin every time you shave.
Step 1: Clean.
Give your skin a good rub down with body wash or soap before grabbing your razor. Some soaps can be harsh on your skin, so choose one that is made to hydrate and moisturise while it cleans.
Step 2: Exfoliate.
Exfoliation is like cleaning, but with a little more edge. It happens when you remove the upper layer of dead skin cells from your body. You can exfoliate with a pumice stone, shower loofah, or even with devices, like the Braun Skin Spa. Simply apply the same shower gel as you did in Step 1 with the scrubber of your choice and whisk those dead skin cells away. This will prep your skin for your razor and leave you feeling soft and smooth.
Step 3: Shave.
Now it’s time to get shaving. Before you grab your razor, make sure to use a shaving cream for women to help your razor glide easier and protect your skin from irritation. There are a lot of shaving gels from which to choose. You can find out which works best for you here. Once you’ve lathered and applied your shaving cream, it’s time to bring out that razor. We believe the best razor for women is one designed especially for women’s bodies. All Venus razors are made with an easy-to-grip handle that fits a woman’s hold and contouring blades that flex around your beautiful curves. Plus, some Venus razors also come with moisture bars that help protect your skin from nicks and cuts. You can find the razor that works best for you here.
Step 4: Moisturize.
You may have finished shaving, but your skin still needs support. Pat your skin dry and apply your favourite body lotion or oil to help lock in moisture and prevent dryness and irritation. By hydrating your skin before, during and after shaving, you can prep it for success.
