Shaving is a great way to get immediate results of smooth hairless skin. [For more on why we still shave click here] However it is important to keep your skin protected as it is a very delicate.
To benefit from shaving and have great looking skin, there are a few essentials that MUST be used to give you a beautiful healthy glow.
Here are 4 shaving essentials:
1. Shave gel
Razors are sharp tools that need to be used carefully. When using a razor on your skin, it is important to shield your delicate skin to prevent any cuts or nicks. Shaving gels provide a layer between the razor and your skin, allowing the blade to glide over your skin. Without this protective layer you will be prone to getting razor burn, cuts, or nicks, which could cause irritation and inflammation on your skin.
2. Sharp razor
To ensure you are getting a clean cut of your hair, the blades of your razor must be sharp. Razors have a lifetime of a few months. If you feel that your razor is tugging at your skin then that is a sign that your blades have become dull and you must replace them.
3. Warm water
Warm and cold temperatures can cause our skin to react differently. When shaving, you want to make sure your skin is relaxed and smooth so that the razor does not have bumps to get caught on. With warm water, you can reduce the amount of goosebumps on your skin while also relaxing your skin.
Lastly, after shaving your skin, you want to keep it smooth and healthy. To do this you need to keep your skin hydrated. Having a good moisturizer is key in helping protect your skin from loss of moisture after shaving. To avoid this step, try finding a shaving gel that has made of ingredients that locks the moisture within your skin rather than stripping it away like most shaving creams and foams. When these steps are followed directly, you are all set to wear those cute outfits and show off your flawless skin in confidence.
