Shaving Tips To Save Your Skin!
Ok, so you know to shave once you’ve been in the shower for a few (wet hair gives ya a better shave), but exfoliating is a crucial step when getting fuzz-free. “Try to exfoliate skin before shaving as this helps prevent in-grown hairs that are caused when the hairs curl back under the skin,” Diane shares.
Diane recommends using a shave gel over a cream. “It may feel good to have a lot of shaving foam on your legs but the fact is that the lather is created by surfactants (similar to detergents) which dry out your skin,” she tells us. Oh, and all of you girls who swear by a bar of Ivory and H20? “Soap or water alone can lead to dry and irritated skin.”
“After shaving, thoroughly rinse off any remaining shaving gel from your skin with cold water,” Diane spills. To avoid those pesky bumps, wait an hour before moisturizing. Apply your fave lotion, and you’re set!
