Winter is here and one of the most common questions that pop-ups in every women’s mind is whether to shave or not to shave. So, do you really need to shave in the winter? We know that it’s super easy to decide not to shave in this cold temperature given the fact that we do not need to dress lighter and show more of our skin.
You’re not going to wear a bikini in the winter, so you’ll often forget about your razor and shaving cream. Do you skip shaving? Before you forget about your shaving kit, let us help you figure out how to get a good shave (even) in the winter.
Check out these five shaving tips.
- Start with a good razor.
There are a lot of razors on the market nowadays and to get a good shave you must get the best razor for your shaving needs. Make sure to choose the one with a handle that fits in your hand perfectly and you need to determine the type of blade that best fits your needs! We prefer the traditional 1 blade heavy razors to get the best results with fewer razor bumps and skin irritation. Once you have the razors that suit your needs, you are off to a good start.
- Go for warm
It’s easy to go for hot water when you come home from the freezing cold to keep yourself comfortable but, that doesn’t always work well for your skin and your body hair. Remember, if you use hot water, your skin will be prone to stripping away your natural moisture and leaving you feeling drier than before. It highly recommended to use a lukewarm to warm water.
- Keep your skin hydrated.
This tip isn’t just for the winter, it is important that you hydrate no matter the season. We all know that our skin is prone to dryness especially in the winter so make sure that you keep your skin hydrated all year around. Before you shave, take a shower or soak in the tub for a few minutes so that your skin as well as your body hair is well saturates, it will be much easier to shave and will give you smoother results.
- Exfoliate first.
To prevent itchiness, irritation, and flakes from dead skin when shaving, you should exfoliate your skin before you shave. If you want healthy-looking, radiant razor bump free skin, you must remove the dead skin and free the trap hairs from beneath the follicle before you begin removing the unwanted hair.
- Never underestimate the help of a good shaving cream.
To help you achieve that amazing and velvety smooth skin you crave, our first tip was to use a good razor. It definitely doesn’t stop there! Partnering that razor with a great shaving cream and oil can make all the difference. Keeping your skin soft, smooth and hair-free is our mission so go ahead and try some shaving cream and shaving oil from the Camellia Alise Skincare Collection!
There are so many more things we could say on this subject but here is a Bonus Tip from us! Try not to wear overly tight jeans this winter. They rub up against the hair on your legs which may cause friction along with some itchiness, irritation, and dryness. It’s best to keep your legs smooth and hair-free no matter what season it is!
