Here are 10 shaving tips and tricks to ensure you're doing it the right way and cutting down on the nicks and irritation so common to shaved skin.
1.The trick to shaving is to wet your skin and let it soften from the heat and moisture. You don't want to shave dry skin. Shaving is a natural exfoliator and if you try to dry shave, you run the risk of clogging up the razor with dead skin while putting yourself at risk for nicks and razor burn.
2.There's no need to waste your money on shaving creams formulated especially for women, they are virtually the same as the creams sold for men.But my fav is Gillette s anti nicks and cuts made for women for satin silky skin.
3.You are going to have to experiment with razors until you find the perfect one for you. Ask your friends for recommendations and look for a razor with lubricated strips, pivoting heads and spring-mounted multiple blades.
4.Be sure to change razors or cartridges on a regular basis; a dull blade can lead to nicks. Also, it's best not to borrow your guy's razor. His hair is coarser and will dull a blade. It's actually best to never use another person's razor because there is a chance you could get Hepatitis C from fresh blood on a razor.
5.Be sure to exfoliate your skin before shaving. It gets rid of all the dead skin cells that could clog up your razor, preventing a close shave. There are several ways to exfoliate. You can use exfoliating gloves or a cloth in the shower or dry brush before you shower .
6.Since your leg hairs grow down, you'll want to start at your ankles and shave up. For your underarms, you'll need to shave in every direction since the hair there grows in at many different angles.
7.When finished shaving, apply oil or moisturizer. The skin on your legs has few oil glands and has a tendency for dryness. I like applying extra virgin coconut oil (or baby oil) on my legs after a shower and then toweling off the excess oil.
8.Ingrown hairs are caused when the hairs curl back under the skin. Avoid ingrown hairs by exfoliating .
9.If you have a chronic case of ingrown hairs, try Tend Skin, an over-the-counter lotion for ingrown hairs, applying it in the morning and at night. The bumps should disappear within a couple days.
10.Consider opting for waxing, at least on your bikini line and lower legs saving the razor for your underarms and upper legs.
i hope these tips would surely help you.

I actually think that men's razors are better. I used to use Gilette Venus, and now I use Mach3. Closer shave and the razors last longer. This comment has been removed.
