Summer shaving tips.

Now that warm weather is here, many women will opt to shave certain areas, and that can lead to irritation for some. Here are tips for a safe, smooth shave:

* Before you shave, wash the area with an antibacterial soap and press a warm washcloth on your skin to soften the hair. Apply a shaving cream or gel to protect and lubricate your skin.

* Never shave dry skin because it can cause razor burn.

* With a clean, sharp razor, shave in the direction of hair growth. Shaving against the direction of hair growth can cause ingrown hairs.

* Rinse your skin and apply a light moisturizing lotion. Heavier lotions or moisturizers can clog pores.
