How do I shave with shaving cream?

First things first – make sure your legs are thoroughly wet and your hair is soft. Letting your skin first become thoroughly wet will prepare the hair for a smooth shave.

Once your skin is wet, you can now apply your shave gel. Make sure to choose a shaving gel that is right for your skin. The Skintimate® Skin Therapy products are great for sensitive, dry skin, and if you are looking for a fun and fruity scent, check out the Skintimate® Signature Scents® shave gels. Spread a thin layer of shaving gel over every part of your leg that you're going to shave, creating a rich, luxurious lather – full coverage of gel on your leg helps protect your skin and reduce irritation and stubble.

Use a multi-blade razor, like a Schick Hydro Silk® or Schick® Quattro For Women® razor, on your legs with the blades flat against your skin. Press gently and evenly as you slide the razor from your ankle up towards your knee. Try for an even press / slide / lift motion. Rinse the razor after every swipe or two to help avoid clogging the razor with hair and shaving cream.
