We all know how tedious shaving our legs can be—one second they’re smooth, and the next, stubble is already popping back up. For most of us, shaving is a struggle and not one we want to partake in on an everyday basis. Believe it or not, there are actually some things we can do to keep our legs smoother, longer. Thank goodness!
Exfoliate Your Skin
Before you even start trimming your hair, grab your favorite skin scrub. Exfoliating before shaving will get rid of any dead skin cells and also help raise any little hairs hiding beneath the surface of the skin, enabling you to get a closer shave.
Use a Good Razor
When choosing a razor, make sure you select the one that’s best for your skin type. For instance, if you have dry skin, select a razor that has a moisturizing strip. Getting a close shave is essential because the closer the shave, the smoother your legs will be and the longer the hair will stay away, Also, opt for a razor with multiple blades.
Begin shaving at your ankles, and shave each leg upward against the hair growth. This is another tactic that will give you the closest shave and a little extra time before stubble appears.
Apply Moisturizer Afterward
After you step out of the shower, apply moisturizer to your legs while they are still a little damp. Doing this will keep your skin smooth and your hair soft.
