How to Shave Your Legs - Video

 

Summary: Shaving legs is a long tradition. It's easy to do and becomes second nature in time.

The following is the transcript of the video:

Shaving your legs is a basic beauty routine that once adopted can easily become second nature. You need to start slow, shaving the first few times in a bathtub is usually a good idea. That way you don't have water from the shower falling into your eyes and you can really focus on what you're doing. Buy a nice razor, one that has a swivel head to get those hard to reach places like the ankles and knees, and start from the bottom moving up your leg.

When you first start you should use shaving cream to make the shaving easier and smoother. Go slowly around your ankles and knees because cuts there may be small, but they hurt and bleed a lot.

Do accept the fact that you probably will cut yourself a time or two when you first start and even after you're an experienced leg shaver, nicks will still happen. But after you finish shaving, put on some lotion to moisturizing the skin and to maintain the smoothness.

Shaving does make wearing capris, shorts, and skirts more fun, but you do need to start out slow and be careful.
