During the Summer do you find yourself having to shave your legs everyday because of all the short shorts, bathing suits, and other revealing attire that keeps us cool? It’s pretty darn annoying right? Well, there are steps you can take to reduce the amount of times you have to shave per week. That’s right, this makes showering a million times easier and quicker. Let me share with you the 7 tips I have found.
Exfoliate Your Legs
By exfoliating your legs with a scrub brush or bath pouf, and a product with salicylic acid or fruit enzymes, you are doing a couple different things that benefit the skin. First, exfoliating removes the top layer of dead skin making your legs smoother, your tan darker, and coaxes the hairs completely out of the follicle. By doing so you get all the leg hairs on the same growth cycle, and reveal the tiny hairs that would normally be trapped under dead skin. You will get a closer shave that lasts longer.
Take A Lesson From History
Old methods from before this clean shaven fad started are also great to try. All natural and gentler on the skin than the chemicals found in today’s products. For excess facial fuzz, try mixing besan, tumeric, and some water to the areas with hair. Let it dry and gently rub it off. Similarly, for the legs, mix cinnamon, sugar, and honey. Microwave the mixture on high for 2-3 minutes and apply a thin layer over the legs and let it dry.
Try Soy Ingredients
Recent studies have shown that lotions with soy can stunt the growth of hair and shrink the hair shaft. So, when hydrating your skin, it couldn’t hurt to give a product with soy a try and see if it works for you.
The Badger Brush
Those brushes that barbers use to wipe shaving cream onto men’s faces are perfect for getting a close shave. They are litlle rough brushes that you can use to lather on your shave gel. Men use them for a close facial shave, why not give it a try too. If someone knows shaving, it is hundreds of years of barbers.
Pay Attention To What You Eat
The Vitamin B6 can help fight back the fuzz. You can get it from meat and fish, bananas, watermelon, broccoli, cabbage, and carrots. These are pretty darn easy to fit into your diet so give this ,and reducing your intake of refined carbs, a try for healthier body and less stubble!
Choose Your Blade Wisely
All razors are not created equal, they make them with moisturizing strips, 4 blade, 5 blade, etc. Choose the best razor for your needs. If you have dry skin, the aid of moisturizing strips is ideal. If you have coarser hair, more blades will get a closer shave. Don’t just go buy some cheap disposable razors from the dollar store. This is your body, don’t just put it in danger recklessly.
This reminds me, don’t use your blades for more than a few months. They dull and become less effective, sometimes they can rust or become jagged making them dangerous. Try to change out the blades more than once every 6 months.
Literally And Metaphorically Go Against The Grain
Depending on your skin and hair, going against the grain can produce ingrown hairs. However, this usually isn’t too much of a problem on the legs. Going against the grain of the hair will get you a closer shave, and so will using a fresh blade. But that can be excessively expensive so I do not recommend it. If you want an even easier routine, you can try alternatives to shaving. There are laser hair removal treatments you can get which is the easiest and most permanent method. But, there is also waxing and removal lotions, such as Nair. The only thing is, these alternatives can be a bit harsh on the skin. so be careful and test the products before using them all over your legs.
And There we have it, 7 different ways to shave less often. Given them a try and see how they work for you. Keep in mind that everyone is different so these methods may not all work for you, but anything is worth a shot right? So stick to these tips and see which work for your stubborn stubble.
Coolsculpting is a quick, non-invasive treatment that helps eliminate the stubborn fat that exercise can’t. Other fat removal procedures use lasers and surgery that can destroy healthy tissue by burning and shattering non-fat cells. Coolsculpting uses a targeted cooling process that freezes and kills just the fat cells leaving the healthy cells intact. Once the fat cells die, they are naturally eliminated from the body. Thanks to this one-of-a-kind procedure, over 1.5 million people from around the world have been able to remove their stubborn fat.

Abdominoplasty, AKA a tummy tuck, was designed to flatten a protruding abdomen through the tightening of abdominal wall muscles and removal of excess fatty tissue and skin. However, this procedure is not a substitute for weight loss; it is meant to improve the shape of the body by narrowing and flattening the abdomen. Because of this, the ideal candidate for a tummy tuck is an individual of normal weight who suffers from weak abdominal muscles and excess skin and fat in the abdominal region.
Tummy tucks are invasive procedures, so they typically require 7-10 days of recovery time plus several weeks of wearing compression garments. After your recovery is complete, though, we guarantee you will experience a new-found confidence in your body and yourself.
