1. START WITH THE RIGHT TOOLS

A good razor is essential. Toss that old, dull one you’ve been using and replace it with one that has multiple blades. Grab a loofah or other scrub and your shaving cream and head to the shower or bath.

2. SOFTEN SKIN IN WARM WATER

Open pores equal a closer shave. So save the shaving for last and let the warm water soften skin and open pores while you wash your hair. You’ll get a closer shave and prevent razor burn.

3. DON’T FORGET TO EXFOLIATE

Take a few extra minutes to exfoliate before you shave. A quick scrub will get rid of dead skin and help clear away pore blockages that could lead to ingrown hairs. Use a loofah or one of these fall body scrubs to slough off dry skin.

4. USE A MOISTURIZING SHAVING CREAM

After you exfoliate, apply this shaving cream to soften the hair.

COCONUT OIL SHAVING CREAM

  • 1/4 cup aloe vera (you can also use conditioner if you don’t have aloe vera)
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 4-6 drops essential oil (pepperminttea treelavender or a combination)

Melt the coconut oil and combine with other ingredients. Stir together and store in a plastic container. Apply a thin layer to skin and let sit a couple of minutes before shaving. The aloe will soften hair while the coconut oil moisturizes skin, helping to prevent razor burn and skin irritation. Add the essential oil of your preference. Peppermint will give a cooling sensation, lavender is soothing and tea tree is a good antiseptic if you cut yourself.

If coconut oil hardens or separates between uses, put the container under the shower stream before shaving to warm it up.

5. GO AGAINST THE GRAIN

You have a new razor (right??), your hair is soft and the pores are open – you’re read to shave! Glide the razor lightly over skin, going against the direction of hair growth. Don’t shave the same skin multiple times as it can lead to cuts and razor burn. If you’re having to shave the same area multiple times, then it’s time to replace your razor.

6. RINSE + PAT

Rinse with cool water and pat dry with a soft towel. Don’t rub; that will irritate skin.

7. APPLY MOISTURIZER

After you pat dry, apply moisturizer. Switch to a heavier moisturizer in winter or just slather yourself in coconut oil.

8. SOOTHE BUMPS

Aloe vera is the perfect antidote to the dreaded red bumps. Apply aloe vera to any rashes for instant cooling, soothing relief.

9. SLOW DOWN HAIR GROWTH

Continue to gently exfoliate between shaving to slow the rate of new hair growth.

P.S. Guys can use it, too!
