Now the conventional wisdom is that you should shave your legs with one of the fruity smelling shaving creams on the market and for most of my life I did this.
However the skin on my legs is incredibly dry. No shaving cream no matter their claims ever left my legs feeling moisturised after I had finished shaving. Further, all of the foaming seemed to be an obstruction to me being actually being able to see the areas on my legs that had perhaps been missed by my razor.
Generally the results of my usual shaving sessions were itchy dry legs with patches of hair still remaining after I had washed off the cream.
It was a tad frustrating but I preferred shaving to hair removal creams. (Another exercise in frustration, chemical burns and still there was hair on my legs)
One day while perusing the internet I discovered a shaving oil that was designed for men’s facial hair.
Oils of all types are a staple in my beauty routines, for use from head to toe, so it wasn’t a stretch to pull out the ever faithful baby oil to shave my legs.
I could see the areas were I needed to shave clearly
My legs are very moisturised after a shaving session and there is no more itchiness.
No Razor Burn
The razor glides smoothly because of the oil.
SInce my initial try with Baby oil I have also used coconut oil and olive oil with good results.
Because you are using oil its a bit harder to get the shaved hairs out of the blade.
Conclusion:For dry itchy skin shave with oil
Have you ever tried shaving with oil?
