Here is a step by step guide on how to shave your legs perfectly. So you get no bumps, ingrowns, irratation and those annoying strawberry legs.
First, make sure you soak your legs in warm water for 3-7 minutes.
Exfoliate your legs before shaving.
Make your own scrub with sugar and olive oil. You can add honey too.
Always use shaving cream. You can also use hair conditioner or coconut oil. Apply a thin layer.
Get a razor that is good, fresh, sharp and not dull.
Do not press hard on the razor. Short strokes and go slow. Do not rush. Bend the knee. Rinse the razor after each stroke. Try shaving downwards and then upwards.
Then softly pat to dry, don’t rub.
Finish with cool water.
Moisturise with a gentle, unscented lotion. You can also use an oil like coconut with aloe vera.
It’s better not to wear tight pants/skinny jeans at least a few hours after shaving to prevent issues like ingrown hairs. Wear a loose skirt instead.
Moisturising days after shaving also helps.
Baby oil helps soothe irritation.
Try waxing! Or sugar waxing. You can make it by yourself at home.
If you have strawberry legs, exfoliate and moisturise every day! They will disappear over time. And switch to waxing or sugar waxing or epilating.
Store the razor outside the shower.
You can try a mens razor. Some find it better.
Change the razor often. A dull, blunt razor causes problems. Use a fresh razor every time.
A razor with more blades and a flexible head is better. A single blade might be better if you get sensitive skin and irritation. See what works best for you. A single blade or 3-5.
