Can't seem to get that smooth, soft, and close shave that you're looking for when shaving your legs. If you are struggling with your leg shaving routine, and are looking for some ways to improve it. We've come up with a 3 simple tips and tricks to help improve your shaving experience. 

If you are looking for an alternative to shaving, our recommended hair removal method is epilating. Epilation removes hair at the root, so you achieve salon smooth, hair free skin every time. If you are interested in learning more about epilating, we did a a full write up about it - HERE.

Tip #1 - Exfoliate Your Legs Before Shaving

Exfoliating your legs before you shave can help you achieve the smooth clean shave you're looking for. The exfoliation process can help to remove excess dirt, dead skin and residual grim, which can clog your razor head. Exfoliation also raises hairs, helping to ensure a clean shave. My favorite epilating moisturizer is Paula's Choice. It's cruelty free, paraben and fragrance free, and made in the USA.

Tip #2 - Shave in The Correct Direction

One of the most overlooked tips is to shave your legs in the direction that your hair grows. Never go against the grain. This step will help to prevent razor burn and reduce the chance of razor bumps. 

Tip #3 - Rinse Razor after Each Pass

Rinse your razor head after each pass. This simple step removes any hair that might clog the razor, and allow for a clean next pass. Dip your razor head in water, or run it under the faucet, whichever is most convenient at the time. 

Pro Tip - Use a Safety Razor

Ditch your regular razors and get a safety razor. Safety razors are WAY cheaper than having to buy disposable razors. Once you own a safety razor, you can simply buy blades, which are as cheap as 0.10 per blade. Safety razors are weighted, so you can achieve a super close shave without having to press hard. They are also environmentally friendly, as they reduce the number of plastic razors that end up in the landfill each year. We recommend the 2x Trans Beauty Award Winning Zomchi Safety Razor. It's affordable, and high-quality making your leg shaving experience a breeze.
