Shaving your legs is one of the easiest ways to quickly and painlessly remove unwanted hair. The bad thing is that after shaving the skin can become dry, irritated, and red, and pimples appear. Thus, a light and fast shave become a real challenge faced by millions of women.
Luckily, there are some easy ways to deal with skin problems after shaving. Here are 3 simple steps to smooth and soft legs after shaving.
Use a moisturizing soap
The skin must be always well-hydrated. This is not done by using a moisturizing product once. Don’t expect results if you’re not constantly moisturizing your skin. That’s why it’s essential to use a moisturizing cleanser that both removes dirt and hydrates the skin.
Apply moisturizer or lotion
Before your skin gets dry from swimming and shaving, apply a moisturizer and deep moisturizer. Do this while the skin is still slightly damp. This will help the moisture stay and be absorbed deeply into the skin. Choose products that are not too heavy or oily, as they clog skin pores and can increase irritation. Products with a lighter texture that are quickly and easily absorbed without weighing down the skin are preferred.
How you dry and soak your skin after shaving matters a lot. If you aggressively wipe, rub and press the skin with a cloth, this will cause it to become irritated and inflamed. Instead, pat gently to soak up the water without irritating the skin with a towel. This reduces the risk of irritation and redness.
