It's time for smooth hair free legs. If you would rather shave than wax, here are some tips to get that perfect shave.

For a perfect shave you need:

1. warm water in a shower or bath
2. shaving cream (or hair conditioner works well for sensitive skin!)
3. a clean sharp razor. A dirty razor can promote folliculitis (infection in the hair follicles).

Start by letting the skin and hair get warm and softened with warm water.

Then apply shaving cream to one leg. Allow the shaving cream to sit on your leg a couple minutes.

Shave in the opposite direction of hair growth, usually upwards, if your skin is tough and doesn't irritate easily. If your skin is sensitive, shave in the direction of the hair growth, usually downward. The skin will not feel as smooth as shaving upward, but the skin will be less irritated. Use long smooth strokes with the razor using very little pressure. Don't rush!  

Bend your knees to shave the kneecap. Flex the foot when shaving the back of the ankle. Point your toe to shave the ankle at the front of the leg.

Feel for any missed hairs. Rinse. Do the same procedure for the other leg.

Apply moisturizer.

Perfect!
