These days more and more people decide to avoid the razors and razor burn; here we have a few quick tips, even if you don’t fancy removing it at all!
Go beyond the traditional shaving method
If you don’t want to shave but you still want smooth legs, hair removal cream is a great option for you. Hair removal cream is applied all over the area you want to remove hair from, left on for a couple of minutes and then cleaned off. Some allow you to shower the product off, whilst others supply you with a little spatula to scrap the product off.
This product is great if you are worried about dry skin from shaving, or if you just fancy to try something new. It is important to test out this product in a small area before using it on your whole body as some people can be allergic to new products. You should also keep wipes on hand whilst applying this product in case you get any somewhere you don’t want to remove the hair so you don’t end up with any uneven or patchy removal.
For longer term results you can use wax strips. When you first start waxing it can hurt a bit and take more time than using a cream, but after a few times you’ll master the technique and will enjoy careless and hairless weeks. There’re both cold and hot waxes available to be used in the peace of your own home.
If you’re going to shave, exfoliate first
If you have decided to stick to your usual shaving routine, make sure to exfoliate the area first to ensure they’re feeling smooth and silky to avoid any ingrown hairs or dry skin from shaving. It is important to make sure you do this step before shaving rather than after, to avoid irritating sensitive skin.
When exfoliating, make sure to avoid products with microbes, as they are not good for drain systems. Exfoliating wipes are a great alternative, and easy to dispose by just throwing them away after use.
This is for anyone - whether you’re going to shave, wax, cream or leave your legs au natural, it is important to moisturize, especially in the summer. Warmer weather doesn’t mean your legs won’t get as dry as they do in colder weather, however with the heat and humidity our skin can become dehydrated.
It is also important to note if you have suffered from sun burn previously, you should take extra care with the products you use to avoid skin irritation.
Show off your legs, regardless
If you don’t want to remove your hair during these warmer months, then show off your legs regardless of it and regardless of what anyone else says!
