You Will Need
- Hot water
- Tub or shower to shave in
- Shaving cream
- Alcohol-free lotion
Shower or bathe
Begin by showering or bathing in hot water. Hot water softens your hair, opens pores and relaxes skin, making it easier to shave.
Lather legs w/ shaving cream
While still in the shower or tub, lather up your legs with shaving cream.
Start at top of foot & pull up
Using a razor with a sharp, clean blade, start at the top of your foot and pull gently up the entire length of your leg in one smooth stroke.
Pull skin taut w/ one hand
Pull sections of leg skin straight and taut with one hand, and use the razor with the other. Shave against the direction your hair grows.
Rinse razor blade
Rinse your razor blade after every few strokes to remove the shaving cream and hair.
Moisturize your legs with an alcohol-free lotion, which will soften the skin without burning or stinging. Voila! Perfectly smooth legs for nearly 72 hours.
