How to Get Silky Smooth Legs
Love your legs! 5 tips for avoiding shaving irritation and getting smooth skin
-Paige Herman Axel
At this point in the summer season, I think it’s safe to assume that you and your razor are quite familiar with each other. But it’s also possible that the past few months of frequent shaving have resulted in uncomfortable irritation. Don’t let bumps or dryness make you wish the warm weather away – follow these shaving tips that will help you get a close, comfortable shave year round.
But before you get started, the razor you’re using can make a difference in the quality of your shave. It seems like razors keep getting more and more technologically advanced, first with two, then three, and now four blades. If you want to be on the cutting edge of shaving (no pun intended) check out the brand-new Azor from King of Shaves. It’s flexible (so it glides over curvey areas like the knees that are prone to nicks); it has a rubber bumper that lifts the hairs for a closer shave; its coated blades stay sharper longer. $8.99, available at Duane Reade stores
