Shaving comes down to personal preference. Some may prefer to keep their body hair while others may not.
If you wish to get smooth skin after shaving then this guide will help you achieve that. Follow the process below using the right tools and products.
If you have sensitive skin, look for products that do not irritate your skin.
Our loofahs are not enough to get rid of the dry skin and the gunk in our pores. As we grow older, our body slows down the natural process of shedding dead skin cells which start to build at the top layer of your skin and make your skin rough, dry and dull.
A sugar/salt scrub in your routine can help to remove those dead skin cells and allow your hair to grow naturally, thus preventing red bumps and ingrown hair.
Try the Bath and Body Works Lavender Chamomile Sugar Scrub for weekly exfoliation and glowing skin.
2. Shaving Gel
It is important to use a good shaving gel that does not dry out your skin and helps to retain your body’s natural moisture. This will help to soften the body hair for easy hair removal without the risk of any cuts.
Since shaving gels are thick and creamy, they also allow you to track where you have shaved to avoid double-shaving on the same spot and prevent irritation.
3. Razors for Shaving
A good women’s razor is one that comes with a smooth surface and added protection on the blades to prevent you from cuts. The razor should have a flexible head that is easy on the curves of your body, for instance, around your knees, elbows, and ankles. While shaving, try to shave in the direction of hair growth before shaving in the opposite direction.
You can try the Missha Soft Shaving Razor made for the delicate skin of women.
4. Shower Gel
When you shave off the tiny hair on your skin, you also exfoliate the surface of your skin. Using a hydrating shower gel instead of a soap bar can help to retain body moisture and keep your skin soft. It will also leave a great fragrance on your body.
Use a shower loofah along with shower gel to get a rich and foamy shower experience at home.
Some of the good shower gels to try are Neutrogena Rainbath Rejuvenating Shower & Bath Gel and Marc Jacobs Dot Shower Gel.
5. Body Moisturizing
Shaving strips off the natural oils of your body. As a result, you can be left with dry skin that looks very dull. A body moisturizer is very important for your skin to add hydration back to your skin.
Apply a thick layer of body moisturizer onto your wet skin to give your body a healthy and glowy look.
Achieving smooth skin after a shave is easier than you think. All you need to do is incorporate these steps into your daily life and turn your shower into a pampering session.
