Our skin can be affected by a lot of things, like weather, outdoor activities and beauty rituals. Occasional dryness or oiliness is just a part of life. But, if you consistently have dry skin after shaving, you might find these top tips helpful. After shaving properly, your skin should be soft. Learn how to up your shaving game and help turn your dry skin into touchably smooth skin with these shaving tips.
Know your skin.
Some women are prone to dry skin – it’s in their genes. Others experience dryness because of outside factors. Get to know your body to understand under which category you fall. The more you know about your skin, the easier it will be to combat dryness and irritation.
Check the ingredients.
Pull out your shower caddy and read the ingredients on the beauty products you use most often, like your body lotion, body wash and shaving cream. Shaving sensitive skin requires products designed to meet your skin’s special needs. If you’re using anything with harsh chemicals, it might be time to try something new.
Choose a better women’s razor.
Using an old, dirty or dull razor can be another reason your skin is dry after shaving. It might be time to get a new one. We believe the best razor for women is one designed especially for women. For extra moisture, try the Venus® ComfortGlide with Olay razor. It features contouring blades for all your curves and two moisture bars that release lush body butters as you shave, wrapping your skin in the hydrating power of Olay and giving your razor a nice glide.
Use shaving cream for women.
If the razor you’ve chosen does not have moisture bars, make sure to shave with a hydrating shave gel. Dry shaving is never a good idea, especially for those who experience dry skin. Don’t shave until you’ve soaked in water for at least two to three minutes. This softens the hairs and preps your skin for shaving. Then, lather up with a shaving cream, like Venus Shave Gel with Olay, for enhanced skin moisturizing and skin protection.
Make a smooth finish.
After shaving your legs, underarms or other desired area, rinse off completely with cool water to close your pores. Then, pat dry and, most importantly, apply your favorite body lotion or oils for an extra touch of moisture.
Voila! Your skin should be clean-shaven and smooth to the touch, with no dryness in sight. If your skin is especially dry, it might take several proper shaves to see results, but keep at it! You’ll have touchably smooth skin in no time!
