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.
