12 Tips on How to Shave Your Legs ...


Many women dread summer coming back.

This means their leg-shaving skills (or lack thereof) will be put on display.

Very few men out there love having a hairy damsel, so it’s time to dust off those razors and read my blog.

I first started shaving my legs when I was a teenager (just like everyone else) and I always seemed to cut myself around the ankle area.

Here are my 12 tips on how to shave your legs without cutting yourself.

12. Shave in a Warm Shower or Bath

If it is possible, you should shave your legs in a warm shower or bath.

11. Wait until the End of the Shower

You should wait until the end of the shower before you shave.

This way, your leg hair will soften up a bit, which will make it easier to shave.

10. What Position?

When you are shaving, you should sit on the ledge of your shower, if you have one.

If you have no place to sit, then raise up your leg against the wall of the shower.

Make sure you carefully balance yourself.

9. Apply a Small Amount of Shaving Cream

When applying the shaving cream, you should apply a small amount.

Rub it into a lather that is thick and spread it over your leg.

You should not use soap in place of the shaving cream as it will dry your skin out.

8. Place the Razor at the Base of Your Ankle

When you start to shave your legs, place the razor at the base of your ankle and gently pull it up over your whole leg.

If you are the type that gets bad razor burn, try shaving in the same direction as your hair is growing.2

With this, you may not get a clean shave, but you will be avoiding those raised bumps.
