Stressed with Stubble? 4 Ways to Shave Less
Posted Monday March 18, 2013 1:42 PM GMT
Shaving is one of those necessary evils. It’s the part of the beauty regimen that we dread, but certainly a job that has to be done … unless your other half digs the hairy look.
Sure, waxing and sugaring can reduce the number of times you reach for your razor, but there are other, less painful ways to shave less.
Pick a good razor. Not to be Captain Obvious, but it’s true. You get what you pay for, and if you use a weak razor you’re going to get even weaker results. We suggest using a tool with four blades. This way, you get the closest shave possible, leaving you with nothing but soft, silky stems for days on end.
Prepare your skin. Rubbing exfoliator on skin before you take the razor to your legs helps individual hairs rise out of their follicles, allowing you to nab each one during one shave session. By doing so, you don’t notice any stragglers soon after, only an amazingly even removal job.
Incorporate new tools. The badger brush isn’t just for the fellas! This funky looking tool helps you get up close and personal with your stems. It’s easy to use, too! Dip the bristles into your cream; apply to your legs, and swipe away.
Think “up”. Drawing your tool in an upwards direction causes you to shave against the grain, which is encouraged for longer lasting results. Shaving down towards your toes doesn’t firmly grasp your stubble and will have you using your razor more frequently.
