How to maximize your shave

Body hair grows in every direction, and so your razor must follow in order to get the closest possible shave. Hairs on your legs grow down, so it’s best to begin at your ankles and shave up. Shaving the hairs in the underarms takes more time and effort, since they grow in every direction.

First, wet your skin with warm water to soften the hairs and open the pores. Prep your skin by lathering-up with a shaving gel and lubricating areas to be shaved. Using a clean sharp razor to maneuver carefully around curves, raised areas and crevices will avoid nicks and cuts, and minimize the chance of infection. Dull blades can give you an uneven shave and leave you with skin irritation and patches of unshaven hair or stubble. With their unique designs, moisturizing strips can help to restore hydration to your skin as you shave. Razors with multiple blades will reduce the number of passes required to get the best possible results. Innovative designs allow blades to individually adjust to hug each and every curve, making it easier to get virtually every hair. The final step is to always moisturize just-shaved areas that are prone to dryness, such as the face and legs.
