I’m all for quick fixes, which is why I think the razor is a God-sent. In just under three minutes, you go from hairy beast to the smoothest kid in town. So for this week’s edition of #TipTuesday, before you get started with that razor, wait until the end of your shower before you start shaving. Why? Under running water your hardened stubble will soften after a long, warm shower.
And, since I love you guys so much, a bonus tip: Please don’t use shower gel when you’re running low on shaving cream. Some shower gels make use of alcohol-laced perfumes, which can dry out your skin and spell bad news for newly shaven areas. Instead, use your favorite conditioner to get a close shave and to lightly moisturize the legs, too.
