  • Shave right away in the shower. Your skin swells up and the hair gets below the skin surface and then when you get out ,the skin goes back and the hair sticks out a little

  • I use an epilator every few days, and shave every other day. The epilator gets most of it, and the shaving keeps it smooth.

  • I make the water temp. the way I want it, shave, and then turn the water more towards cold, that way it sorta likes gives me the chills (u kno, when ur hair sticks up from being cold LOL) and then go over it again,....its a longer process of course, but it does work!!!! only way i could find that works for me.

  • Nair or Veet will give you a "smoother finish" because it brings the hair out from the root instead of just cutting off the top of it. Also it lasts longer than a shave.

  • I exfoliate every time before I shave and it works great for a close soft feeling after I shave.
