Here's The One Thing You Should Never Do When Shaving Your Legs

February 18, 2016 by Isabel Jones

I’ve been shaving my legs for about ten years, so you’d think I’d have mastered the skill by now. LOL, I haven’t! NOT EVEN CLOSE. Sometimes my shaving cuts bleed out for days — like they’re fine when I add a bit of tp to the fresh cut, but when I take it off later I end up looking like an extra in a Quentin Tarantino movie. Deep, deep gashes. And okay, my razors aren’t what you’d call top of the line, but still, the damage is pretty ridiculous.

As it turns out, it might not be my razor’s fault. There’s a whole realm of leg shaving taboos that I didn’t even know existed! It reaches far beyond your mom’s warning to not shave above the knee (still pretty confused by that advice…).

For me, this was the kicker: you’re not supposed to use bar soap! Seriously! Using bar soap as an alternative to shaving cream is a major don’t — like it’s actually worse than shaving dry! If you’re shower-side and desperate, use hair conditioner, but for best results… Shaving cream or BUST.
