It seems that spring has knocked on our doors early this year, so get that bathing suit out of the closet and start planning your weekend at the beach. Gillette Venus has put together some shower shaving tips to teach you how to properly shave your legs, and getting a silky smooth skin:
- Shave properly:If you prefer shaving, make sure your blade is sharp by using a Gillette Venus razor, don’t use blunt blades as they don’t give a smooth shave. Also, exfoliate before shaving to get a closer shave. Don’t moisturize your skin either. Bare skin allows a better grip and remove hair properly. Apply Satin Care Gel prior to your shave in order to achieve maximum results.
- Exfoliate regularly:Use a scrub on alternate days starting two days after your hair removal treatment. This is when the hair follicles close and trap hair underneath. A good scrub will remove the dead skin cells, allowing curled up hair to surface.
- Moisturize:Dry skin is more prone to ingrown hair. When your skin is dry, the hair is unable to push its way out, and therefore, curls back underneath your skin, leading to ingrowths. Moisturizing twice daily will soften your skin, making the hair push through easier.
