SHAVING TIPS FOR WOMEN

Today, women are increasingly turning to waxing and some are trying laser hair removal, however shaving still remains the least expensive and most popular form of hair removal.
When shaving legs, underarms or bikini area, proper moisturization is a necessary first step. A sharp blade is crucial to getting a close, comfortable, irritation-free shave.

Legs
Moisten the skin with water for about three minutes. Use the Razoraid to dislodge any ingrown hairs followed by the application of a thick shaving gel.
Use long, even strokes without applying excessive pressure. Shave carefully over bony areas like ankles, shins and knees. For knees, bend slightly to pull the skin tight before shaving, as folded skin is difficult to shave. Remember to shave in the direction of hair growth. Take your time and shave carefully over sensitive areas. For a closer shave, carefully shave against the grain of hair growth.

Underarms
Moisten the skin with water for about three minutes. Use the Razoraid to dislodge any ingrown hairs followed by the application of a thick shaving gel. Lift your arm up while shaving to pull skin tight. Shave from the bottom up, allowing the razor to glide over the skin. Avoid shaving the same area more than once, to minimize skin irritation. Avoid applying deodorants or antiperspirants immediately after shaving, as doing so can result in irritation and stinging. To prevent this, shave underarms at night and give the area time to stabilize before using deodorant.

Bikini Area
Moisten the skin with water for about three minutes. Use the Razoraid to dislodge any ingrown hairs followed by the application of a thick shaving gel. This preparation is a must, as the hair in the bikini area tends to be thicker, denser and curlier, making it more difficult to cut. Handle the skin in the bikini area gently, as it is thin and tender.
Shave horizontally, from the outside to the inside of the upper thigh and groin area, using smooth even strokes.
