Do you want to know how to get touchably smooth skin? Many women overlook the importance of exfoliating and shaving. The two practices work hand in hand to help protect your skin from dryness and irritation and promote smooth, soft legs, underarms and other areas of the body. To help you get the most out of exfoliating and shaving your skin, we’ve gathered together some helpful shaving tips for women. Check them out below!
Know your skin type.
Do you have oily skin? Dry skin? Sensitive skin? It’s helpful to understand your skin before choosing exfoliation and shaving products. For example, if you need to know how to shave sensitive skin, you should choose a razor designed specifically for that skin type, like the Venus® Embrace Sensitive. If you need a bit more scrub, you might choose an exfoliator, like the Braun Silk-épil exfoliating device. Get to know your skin and don’t be afraid to experiment with different products or processes. The goal is to find a skin care and shaving routine that fits your life and your body.
It’s time to get scrubbing! Depending on your skin type and sensitivity, you might choose a physical scrub or a chemical one. Physical exfoliators use brushes, beads, salt, sugar or sand to get rid of dead skin cells and impurities. Chemical ones use exfoliating acids and enzymes or a combination of both. Whichever you choose, make sure not to scrub too hard – the exfoliators are designed to do most of the job for you. When you’re finished, rinse away the solution with warm water. Now that you’ve got rid of most of the dirt, dead skin and impurities, your razor will be at its most effective.
Use shaving cream for women.
Once you’ve been in the bath or shower for at least two to three minutes, your hair will be soft enough to shave. Before you grab that razor, reach for your favourite shaving cream for women. Shaving cream helps hydrate your skin and increase the glide of your razor, so your skin will be smooth and hair-free. There are a lot of shaving gels from which to choose. Find one that fits your needs!
Choose a women’s razor.
Now that you’ve lathered up with shaving cream, you’re ready to shave. Whether you’re shaving legs, arms or your bikini area, it’s important to use a good, clean razor. We believe the best razor for women is a razor designed for women. That’s why Venus® razors are made to contour to your curves and fit your grip. Plus, many of our razors, such as the Venus Embrace, produce a protective Ribbon of Moisture™ for a smooth glide. Once you’ve selected your razor, gently pull it across the desired area with short, steady strokes. Your skin should be easy to shave since you exfoliated beforehand. Rinse between strokes to keep the blades free from shaving gel and cut hairs. Rinse your whole body with cool water to close pores, and pat dry for a smooth finish.
Exfoliating and shaving are great additions to your beauty routine. With these simple steps, you can help keep your skin soft, supple and touchably smooth.
