You don’t change the blade often
Lazy girls, we’re talking to you. Remember that when you use an old blade, it makes it all the more difficult to get a close shave and can even cause major burns. Moreover, when you use an old blade, you basically let the bacteria settled on the razor get into your skin. This can lead to several infections and skin concerns. Hence, it’s best to change your blade after considering how often you use it.
You don’t exfoliate before starting
Exfoliating your body ensures that the dead skin is out of the way and won't clog the razor—something that otherwise causes a razor burns. Plus, it’s always easy to achieve a close shave if you get the dead skin out before going in with the razor. We suggest using the Dove Gentle Exfoliating Nourishing Body Wash. This product will gently wash away dead skin along with giving you softer and smoother skin. Its NutriumMoisture technology will give you the goodness of natural nutrients that keep your skin supple at all times.
You put too much pressure while shaving
If you think you can make the most of the process by putting in as much pressure as you can, you are so wrong. This will only cause further friction on your skin thereby making your skin itchy and irritable. The razor should allow a smooth movement not a coarse one where you have to put too much pressure.
You use the wrong razor
Sure, it might be easy to take your partner’s razor for a quick shave but little do you know the amount of damage that is causing your skin. Remember that a man’s body is very different from a woman’s. Women’s razors are designed in such a way that they have curve-sensing blades that understand the woman’s body. This is why we suggesting using a women’s razor only when it comes to shaving your body.
You don’t moisturise soon after
There is chance that your skin feels irritable and dry post a shaving session. Shaving sometimes leads to ingrown hairs and rashes and hence, it’s best to invest in a hydrating lotion like the Vaseline Intensive Care Deep Restore Body Lotion that will nourish your skin because it contains the goodness of Pure Oat Extract and Stratys 3 Multi-Layer Moisture. Once you’re done shaving, make sure you moisturise your skin with this lotion. Treat this as an essential shaving tip and you’re sure to be happy with your shave!
