Cream-colored Ponies and Shaving Cream

Raindrops on roses, and whiskers on kittens… these may be Fraulein Maria’s favorite things, but I personally have other things in mind- one of them is having smooth, silky legs which stretch as far as the eye can see. For the longest time, I have dreamed of velvety, hair-free legs which would beat Charlize Theron’s by at least ten points in the Best Legs scale. Although my legs are hardly Hollywood material, I must say that years of practice with the razor – and countless nicks along the way- have turned me into somewhat of a master shaver. Here are a few tips on shaving your legs- the right way:

Shave in the shower. This works best if you’re in a bit of a rush. The water washes the hairs away as you shave, so it’s easy to see any hairs you may have overlooked. Wet a sharp razor and your legs with warm water. The hair follicles will relax from the heat, making it easier to shave.

Lather shaving cream on your legs. You can never underestimate how important this is, as it makes for a smoother shave. You can use hair conditioner as a substitute.

Glide the razor up your legs ever so gently to avoid ingrown hairs. Slow and steady wins the race. Razor burn and cuts usually happen when you shave too fast with an unsteady hand. Remember to rinse your razor in between strokes.

If at first you don’t succeed, well, just keep at it. Eventually, you’ll be shaving those hairs away with ease borne out of practice. When the dog bites, when the bee stings…when you’re feeling sad… simply look at your gorgeous legs, and then you won’t feel sooo baaaaddd…

  1. There are shaving salons everywhere now. I guess that’s good. No need to shave yourself at home if you are feeling lazy. Hihi!

  2. I always miss a small patch every time I shave my legs!! Never fails. Maybe I need to slow it down.

  3. haven’t tried to put cream and shave my legs because I am scared of the pain, but reading this post interests me. will try this one day…:-)

  4. a lot of times i’d go to the salon for it, maybe that’s being lazy as Pink Magaline calls it, or maybe I’m just wanting to feel pampered like a princess! this is a cool tip though, i’ll save it in case i or a friend becomes diligent about it! ;-)

    • Money is the only reason I can’t go to the salon :). Otherwise, I guess I’d much rather be pampered too. Thanks for the visit :)
