Now that spring is almost here, it’s time to start thinking about prepping for the summer months, when clothes are more revealing. If you’re like most of us, your body has been hidden under cozy layers for quite some time, and certain grooming habits like leg shaving have fallen to the wayside. If this sounds like you, we congratulate you, because it means you’ve taken a well-deserved break from cumbersome grooming rituals! That’s one of the main reasons we love wintertime so much. It provides some much-needed breathing room and hibernation time!
Well, now that spring is creeping up on us, are you starting to feel a little anxious about your appearance? If the idea of getting swimsuit-ready is daunting, we’re here to tell you that it’s possible to prep without the stress! Here are a few of our favorite tips and tools for looking and feeling amazing in the warmer months ahead.
1. Use your shower like a pro.
There are two main secrets to avoiding razor burn: Exfoliation and moisturizer! Your first step is gently exfoliating in the shower with a loofah sponge or washcloth. Gently exfoliating your skin before shaving will help your pores to open up and slough off dead skin cells, preventing ingrowns. Your second step: As soon as you get out of your shower, when your skin is most receptive to lotion and still slightly damp, slather on a non-comedogenic body lotion to seal in moisture. You’ll be surprised how effective these two steps are for improving the look of your skin after shaving. Try this regimen for a week and report back to us on your results!
