You've probably heard this tip before, but it's one of the most important. Exfoliating before a shave gets rid of dead skin, which helps bring tiny hairs to the surface. Getting rid of little hairs will keep your stems smooth and hair-free much longer.

After you shave, gently pat your legs dry. Having a little bit of water left on your legs will be a lifesaver when you moisturize—the double moisture will help prevent dry skin in the future.

Use New Razor Blades

Switch out dull razors for new ones to get the cleanest shave possible. Experts reccomend getting a new razor after 5-10 shaves. You can make your razor last a little longer by rinsing shaving cream out of the blades and keeping it dry after use. This helps avoid rust!
