2. Use warm water to wet the area you plan to shave, but don’t soak your skin. Soaked skin will swell up around hair follicles, making shaving more difficult. Wet hair is softer to cut. Steam from the shower opens your pores for easier hair removal.
3. Slather shaving cream or shaving gel, on your legs, covering the area entirely. Do not use soap.
4. Shave against the direction of hair growth with a sharp, fresh razor. Be firm. Use the right type of razor for you. Razors are designed specifically. Many razors also contain a strip of moisturizer that softens skin and helps reduce irritation.
5. Moisturize the freshly shaven area with a lotion that contains an anti-inflammatory agent, such as menthol, urea or lactic acid. Anti-inflammatory agents reduce any redness, swelling or irritation that shaving may cause.
