Improper shaving can lead to very unpleasant consequences

We will switch to light and open clothes soon. This means that many women will start shaving their legs regularly. However, this procedure can cause a lot of problems, such as cuts, ingrown hairs, and skin irritation, if done incorrectly.

OBOZREVATEL talks about common shaving mistakes and how to avoid them.

Wrong products

Many women believe that they can save money on special shaving products and use ordinary soap or shower gel to shave their legs. In fact, foams, gels, and other special cosmetics, unlike soap, moisturize the skin instead of drying it. This reduces the likelihood of cutting yourself and is less likely to cause irritation.


To get the best possible result for the whole day, women often shave their legs in the morning when they are in a hurry to get to work or school. However, without the right preparation, you can get all the unwanted skin reactions. To minimize them, you need to stand in the shower for at least 10-15 minutes before removing hair. This will soften the skin and open the hair follicles. The quality of the shave can also be affected by the fact that your legs may swell a little at night. Therefore, shaving your legs in the evening is not such a bad idea.

Disposable machines

Inexpensive, disposable shaving machines quickly become dull, so it's best not to use them as your main shaving tools. They are convenient to take with you on the road. At home, it's better to keep a high-quality razor with replaceable blades. In addition, you should choose those options that have 4-5 blades as they shave better and irritate the skin the least.

Old razor

Disposable razors and blade cassettes need to be replaced after 5-10 shaves. After such use, they become dull and start to work poorly, leaving missed hairs and scratching the skin. In addition, bacteria can develop on the blade, which can cause an infection if it gets into a cut. An indicator that it's time to replace the blades may be their color. As soon as the metal tarnishes, the item needs to be replaced.

Storing razors in the bathroom

High humidity and high temperatures are not the best conditions for storing blades. These conditions cause the blades to rust quickly. It also accelerates the growth of bacteria. That's why it's best to store razors in a cool, dry place.
