Top Ten Shaving Tips
Shaving Your Legs
Oh, sure – now this is the least high-tech option. No fancy machines or spa appointments. Before you dismiss shaving with a disposable razor as hopelessly boring, you should know that many exotic dancers swear by shaving as the best way to get rid of body hair. And who would know more about beautiful bodies?
Choosing A Shaving Cream
“If you don’t mind smelling like peanut butter for two or three days, peanut butter is darn good shaving cream” (Barry Goldwater, American Politician 1909-1998).
While I personally do not recommend peanut butter for solving all your shaving problems, I do think it is essential to soften hair before shaving. Whether you are a woman shaving your legs or a man shaving your face, your hair needs to be soft in order to allow your razor to cut the hair without damaging your skin. Shaving cream is the best way to soften your hair because it does not clog razors (like soap does) and It’s especially formulated to be gentle on skin.
Sorting Out Shaving Bumps
Anyone who has shaved for a while has experienced these angry-red, painful little bumps. They look awful and they do have an ‘ouch-factor’. Unless you shaved dry (shame on you!), you might not know why you get them. The truth is, there are as many ways to get rid of these bumps as there are causes to the annoying little eye-sores. If you are not sure what causes your shaving bumps, try a remedy or two until you find one that works for you!
How to Shave.
Shaving may be one of the most widely used ways to get rid of body hair, but plenty of women go about it wrong, leaving them nicked and annoyed with the whole process. Since most women will shave at some point, it makes sense to learn to shave properly. To get a perfect shave, be sure to prepare yourself. Make sure you have a sharp razor and plenty of shaving cream or foam on hand. Time your shaving well. Avoid shaving first thing in the morning (when skin is puffy and you won’t get a close shave) or when you are rushed. Avoid shaving just before heading to the beach or pool (the chemicals and salt in water can irritate newly shaved skin).
Shaving makes an ideal first way to get rid of hair: it doesn’t cost much, it’s easy-as-pie, and hair grows back in week or so – meaning that you can still notice the changes that are happening to your hair. Many women start shaving in their pre-teens or early teens, when changes in the body causes hair to sprout up on legs, underarm and pubic areas. To get an ideal shave, even if you have never shaved before, be sure to buy the right things.
How To Get A Close Shave
Here is your ultimate guide to achieving that simply gorgeous close shave!
Brazilian Shave – The Number 1 Sensation
Brazilian bikini and hollywood waxes may be highly chic right now, but many people have actually been shaving their pubic hair for years. A Brazilian bikini shave involves shaving all the hair from the pubic area and leaving the entire area bare. It is a good technique for women who crave the look of a Brazilian wax but who hate the thought of going into the salon for such a private (and sometimes pricey) process. It is also ideal for women who like to wear skimpy underwear and don’t want to worry about their bikini line showing. With this method, there is no bikini line to worry about!
The Cutting Edge Of Body Shaving
Many of us shave just to get rid of extra hair on our legs and armpits. But some women and men want a perfectly hairless body. In many cases it’s because they are naturally hairy and feel that a perfectly smooth body is sexy. Swimmers, cyclists, and professional body builders often want to be completely hair-free for their sport. No matter what the reason, shaving is a fairly quick and inexpensive way to get rid of hair all over the body. Still, some areas of the body (such as the back, the stomach, and the arms) are more sensitive than legs, so it takes a little extra know-how to get these areas smooth.
Shaving – Down To The Nitty-Gritty
Shaving is an old-fashioned method of hair removal as razors have been around for many hundreds of years. Despite this, shaving remains one of the most widely used ways to get rid of unwanted hair. Shaving involves cutting the hair at the skin level, and can be used on legs, underarms, and the bikini area. It should never be used on a woman’s face.
