7 steps for razor shaving to be perfect
For the epilation with razor to be perfect, some precautions must be followed so that the hairs are removed effectively and the skin is not damaged by cuts or ingrown hairs.
Although razor shaving does not last as long as cold or hot waxing, it continues to be used, as it is not painful, it is quick and it removes hair for about 3 to 5 days.
In the case of intimate waxing, other precautions are necessary. Learn which ones on how to do intimate waxing correctly.
1. Do an exfoliation before
The first step for the razor to be perfect is to exfoliate about 3 days before. This helps prepare the skin for epilation, as it removes dead skin cells that can make the blade difficult to work with, and reduces the risk of ingrown hairs.
2. Do the epilation in the bath
When epilating, leaving warm water dripping in the region to be epilated for 2 minutes is essential to dilate the pores and make hair removal easier with the razor.
3. Use shaving cream to shave
It is recommended to use shaving cream or another product for hair removal instead of soap or conditioner, as these products dry out the skin, increasing the risk of injury and making hair removal more difficult.
4. Shave in the direction of hair growth
The blade must be passed in the direction of hair growth, from top to bottom, so as not to cause damage to the skin and to reduce the risk of hair ingrowing.
5. Wash the razor during epilation
Washing the razor with water while waxing is important to remove accumulated hair and to remove it more easily. In addition, you should wash and dry the blade well after epilation and before storing it, so as not to get rust and can be used again.
6. Apply moisturizer afterwards
Finally, it is essential to apply moisturizing cream on the skin after epilation to moisturize it, as it is very sensitive and irritated after epilation.
7. Only use the blade 3 times
It is necessary to replace the blade after 3 uses, as with excessive use, it can rust and make hair removal more difficult. In addition, it is important not to share razors because razor shaving can cause small cuts in the skin, increasing the risk of contracting or transmitting any disease.
