This Is Why You Should Never Shave Your Legs With Cold Water

March 8, 2016 by Rachel Gulmi

There are a lot of different ways women shave their legs. You can use shaving cream or hair conditioner, a 5-blade razor or a single blade razor, etc. However, there’s one thing that should be the same in everyone’s routine and that is water temperature.

When it comes to shaving your legs, you should most definitely use warm/hot water instead of cold water. Cold water can cause goosebumps on most people and won’t allow you to get a close shave. This could also lead to irritated skin and razor burn. Warm water, on the other hand, loosens up the hair follicle and softens skin, which makes it easier to shave away.

Remember to always use warm or hot (but not too hot!) water when shaving.
