Please tell me I am not the only one that showers at night, shaves their legs, and then wakes up with little prickly hairs already on those once smooth legs?! Seriously, can I just have nice un-hairy legs for more than 12 hours?!!! Here's what I am going to do to wage war on my legs, and I hope they work! (If anyone has any other tricks, help a girl out and leave them in the comments!) - Exfoliate Your Skin Use your favorite skin scrub on your legs BEFORE shaving. Exfoliating will get rid of any dead skin cells and also help raise those little hairs hiding beneath the surface. - Use a Good Razor When choosing a razor, make sure you select the one that’s best for your skin type. (Dry skin = moisturizing blade!!!) Opt for a razor with multiple blades. - Shave Up Begin shaving at your ankles, and shave each leg upward against the hair growth. This simultaneously lifts and gets rid of leg hair. - Apply Moisturizer Afterward Right after you step out of the shower, apply lotion. Just be sure that it is not a heavily scented one, as that might actually irritate your skin.
