 Tips for a Soft and Hair Free Skin for Those Who Want to Shave

One of Britain's leading beauty therapists has given tips for getting a smooth, soft and hair free skin for those who want to opt for the easy way of shaving instead of going through a waxing procedure.

Femalefirst.co.uk shares expert beauty tips from Nathalie Eleni, beauty therapist, Venus & Braun, on how to get the perfect shave:

1.Take a shower before you shave to remove natural oils, perspiration and hydrate hair, which makes it up to 60 percent easier to cut. Two to three minutes is optimum soaking time.

2. Apply a good amount of moisture-rich shave gel before shaving to help keep water in the hair and to ensure the razor glides easily over skin. Don't rely on soap to prepare skin, it may clog the razor during shaving. In addition, many soaps cause dryness and flaking.

3.Choose your razor wisely. It is important to choose a razor that is properly equipped for the job.

4.Shave with a fresh blade. Fresh blades provide a closer, smoother, more comfortable shave and can help prevent cuts and irritation. The blades should be replaced at the first sign of dullness or discomfort. On an average, women replace blades after about 10 shaves.

5. Use a light touch, exerting as little pressure as possible, and shave in the direction that feels most comfortable. Re-lather before shaving the bikini and other sensitive areas.

6. Leave hard-to-shave spots for last. The backs of knees and thighs, and areas like ankles, where the bone is close to the skin surface, are often difficult to shave.

7.Rinse skin thoroughly after shaving, and then pat skin dry. Don't rub skin harshly and don't dry off completely. The extra water on your body will be sealed in as you apply moisturiser, helping to eliminate dry, flaky skin, especially on freshly shaved legs so that you can achieve a healthy glow.
