Did you know that there is a correct way to shave different parts of your body? There certainly is if you want to avoid skin irritation, cuts, and razor bumps. Let’s go over the three main areas that most women shave: armpits, bikini area, and legs.
To shave your armpits and avoid irritation and cuts, raise one arm slightly. Then pull the edge so that your skin is taut. Put on shaving gel and use a new razor with multiple blades and shave carefully. Then repeat on the other side.
If you shave your bikini area, this can be the toughest area to master. If you have a lot of hair, start by trimming the hair so it is nice and short. Always use water, then shaving gel to coat the area you want to shave. Hold on to the area to keep the skin taut and shave downwards. Go slowly so you don’t risk cutting yourself in this sensitive area. Follow up with oil or cream to help reduce bumps.
To shave your legs, start by using a scrub to get rid of dead skin cells. Then get your legs nice and wet and apply shaving cream. Start by shaving downwards and then go over the areas again going upward. It can help to work your way up. Be gentle around your ankles and knees, because these are the most common areas where people cut themselves. Apply a moisturizer right after you get out of the shower or bath.
How often do you shave? Do you shave all of these areas? Keep in mind many razors now come with multiple blades and shaving cream built in, so it is easier than ever to get a close shave!
