In the 21st century beauty industry, leg shaving is seen as a norm but is rarely talked about. It seems like an easy task to just pick up a razor and shave our cream lathered legs. However, if you experience itchiness or redness, you probably are doing it wrong.
It is important to shave against the direction of hair growth with a clean and sharp razor. You do not want to rush the process to have cuts and missing spots! You also might think that applying more pressure would make the job easier but it actually causes more damage to the skin surface, so be gentle!
Also, try shaving at the end of your shower. This would make the job easier as your skin and hair would be softened by the warm environment allowing an easier and clean shave.
