♥ Every girl wonders when they’ll be allowed to shave. Whether, they like the long blonde hairs or dark brown hairs on their arms and legs, many still wonder what it would be like to be clean and hairless.
♥ I will always encourage waxing all hairy areas regardless of sensitivity. I also encourage you when it’s affordable to get waxed and watch the esthetician as she waxes you, so you can do it at home on your own. All the supplies you need are sold on Ebay.
♥ NEVER shave your face. If you shave your face, you risk it growing back thicker, darker, and rougher and can't be reversed. You must wax or see an esthetician to have this treated.
What Do I Need To Shave My Legs?
♥ a) Gillette Daisy Disposable Razors are great razors, but they come in 4 different styles. Each style has something different about it (i.e. White Strip, Wide head, Flexible Head, Basic) or you can purchase a razor with disposable razor heads and again you’ll have to try them out.
♥ b) A Styptic Pencil stops minor cuts, scrapes, or slices. You dip the tip and apply to sore. Dab with tissue. It also comes in a powder available at any pet store in the nail cutting isle.
♥ c) Shaving Cream for Legs or Gel is needed to prevent red bumps, red dots, itchy, and either a dry itchy rash or a raised crunchy rash on your legs after shaving. Do not use soap as it dries out your skin and causes it to become a dry itch regardless if it says its a moisturizing soap.
♥ d) A Moisturizing Lotion or Oil is the best treatment 30 minutes after your bath; however, if you are using Baby Oil or any other type of oil, then you can work it in right out of the tub. Oil of Olay has a firming cream that smells nice and moisturizes beautifully.
♥ e) If you are considering shaving your pubic hair, I suggest you purchase yourself a hair trimmer or clippers (approximately $29.99 - $199.99). It trims the pubic hair down to 1/8 - 1/4 of an inch long; it looks and feels great and there is limited itchiness.
Why Do I Need To Soak In The Tub?
♥ 2) Always soak in the bathtub for 10 minutes before considering shaving making sure to submerge your legs in the water. If you don’t have a bathtub, drape hot hand towels over the half of the leg you want to shave and wait 5 minutes before the towels cool down. Be sure to submerge the area being shaved next for 5 minutes to open the pores. This applies to the upper legs, underarms, arms, and pubic area.
♥ a) Put your leg or arm up on the ledge or rim on the bathtub. Apply the shaving gel in a line up or down the leg or arm. Work the shaving gel into foam by rubbing it all over your leg or arm to cover the entire ½ of your leg or arm.
♥ b) Start at the bottom of the leg (ankle) or arm (wrist). Be extremely careful shaving the side of your legs or arms for tendons, shins, moles, skin tags, elbows and knees. Do not apply pressure to the razor and gently go over these areas with extreme caution or you can end up with a 3 ½ inch slice or amputating moles and tags.
♥ c) If you have very faint hair on your thighs and upper arms, you can leave them as is, but if you prefer the entire leg or arm to be cleansed of hair, then apply the shaving gel in a line down the thigh or arm and repeat shaving the other ½ of your leg or arm.
♥ d) If you are one of the fortunate and have hair on your toes and top of your foot, you can apply the shaving lotion with extreme caution and shave over these areas. You can also shave the tops of your hands if you like how it looks.
♥ f) On the sides of the legs you can feel the direction of the hairs to shave downward over the areas including the knee. On the top of the lower arm, shave sideways towards your inner body until the entire lower arm is done, then go over the arm starting at the wrist to your elbow.
♥ g) The pubic area is absolutely beautiful when waxed Brazilian (hairless) style. If you want to shave this area, be sure to soak it in hot water for at least 5 minutes and add the shaving cream making it quite foamy and then shave downward to prevent open cuts from shaving upward; don’t make the mistake of trying it to feel like a baby’s bottom by pressing hard and shaving upward, or you’ll suffer with razor burn, itchiness, and pain. In this event you can use witch hazel to soothe the pain of shaving. You’ll have to prop your bottom upward on the ledge to shave the underside by the anus. Shave towards your tummy gently so that you don’t catch the anus, perineum, and/or vagina.
How Many Times Can I Reuse My Razor?
3) If you used your razor for just your legs and arms, you can keep the razor for light touch ups during the week; however, if you used the razor to do your entire body starting with your legs, underarms, arms, & pubic area, you need to throw the disposable razor away or change the razor head. A warm, moist environment like the bathroom is a feeding ground for bacteria to grow and be transferred into the pores of your skin and cause a staphylococcus infection.
♥ a) Rub in Baby Oil or an Oil of your choice right from getting out of the bath tub. You can do the entire areas that were shaved.
♥ b) Do not rub Moisturizer in your skin until at least 30-60 minutes after your bath. Do not use moisturizer on your pubic area as it’ll sting. Soak cotton balls in witch hazel and apply as a compress if you find it stinging.
How Can I Manage It's Cost?
4) It’s important to watch for coupons and samples for all the different razors available out there, so you can find the right razor for you. You can find numerous samples of different products in the newspaper, large box stores, and mail. You can also visit the brand name websites to see if they have any special offers or coupons.
