1. Use shaving cream or gel, not soap

Shaving cream does things that soap can’t compete with. It softens your hairs, making them easier to shave close lớn the surface of your skin. Formulas with vitamin E, olive oil, lanolin, and colloidal oatmeal are a safe bet. Vi-ta-min E —with its antioxidant properties — proves khổng lồ be a particularly potent boost for hair softness.

Soap, on the other hand, has little to lớn none of that softening function. Since soap’s used for deep cleaning your hair và skin, it can make your hair more brittle, & brittle hair resists a closer shave.

2. Exfoliate! Exfoliate! Exfoliate!

Exfoliate your skin before you get into the bath or shower lớn shave your legs. When your skin’s dry, the rough dead cells on its surface khung a pretty gnarly type of armor that stops moisturizer sinking in and doing its job.

Next time you’re shopping for skin care, look for glycolic & lactic acid — key ingredients in exfoliating lotion. Both are alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs). These get rid of dead skin và clean out your pores.

If you’re really looking for a deep cleanse, you might also want khổng lồ exfoliate again after you’ve shaved.

3. Sunscreen is for your legs, too

Some people forget khổng lồ put sunscreen on their legs even in the sunniest weather.

If you’ve been exfoliating and removing your skin’s natural protections from the sun’s harmful rays, sunscreen becomes even more important. Have you ever heard of silky-smooth sunburnt legs?

In the long term, too much unprotected exposure khổng lồ strong sunlight risks damaging your skin. You could kết thúc up with far bigger problems than coarse legs when you neglect proper skin care. So suit up!

4. Act fast with your post-shower body toàn thân cream

Using a body toàn thân cream with moisturizing ingredients lượt thích shea butter, ceramides, and lanolin helps lock water into your pores.

Skin on your legs dries out quicker than on the rest of your body. So if you want khổng lồ keep ‘em soft, strike when they’re at peak moistness. Và be generous with how much you apply! Chances are, you won’t get buttery smooth legs by being stingy with your body toàn thân cream.

Switching khổng lồ creamy body washes packed with argan, almond, or coconut oil can help. These gentler products work with your skin rather than nuking it. Never throw the baby out with the bathwater. Lock in your body’s precious natural oils.

6. Body oil gives you softer legs while you sleep

Oil và water aren’t friends — they don’t mix. That makes oil a great security guard for when water wants to escape from your body. A coat of toàn thân oil over your water-based moisturizers can protect your baby-smooth skin day and night!

If you put a layer of body toàn thân oil over your lotioned legs, the oil makes a barrier that prevents you from losing the most beneficial effects of the body cream — and the oil even locks in more moisture. That means softer legs in the morning!

Body oil also can safeguard your moisturizers from rubbing off. When you sleep, your body cream rubs off on your sheets, aided by the sweat of your rising toàn thân temperature. So lock the moisture in with some toàn thân oil!

7. Give rough patches more love

Some bits of your legs simply vày more work than others. Your knees hinge and chafe all day while your shin stays still. Hard-working areas, (like your knees & heels) build up more dead skin than others.

After you’ve showered & your skin is loosened up a bit, give those areas an extra bit of love with an oil-based body toàn thân scrub. That will take off the most dead skin possible & give every inch of your legs the best possible chance of smoothness.

8. Learn to lớn love hyaluronic acid

Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a supercharged moisturizer that holds up to 1,000 times its weight in water. Your body naturally produces it, but we start producing less and less of it as we age. That’s one contributing factor lớn skin losing its smoothness over time.

If you have dry skin, moisturizers with HA can be a lifesaver. Even if you don’t always struggle with dryness, it provides exceptional surface-level hydration.

9. Shave in the evening, not the morning

Fun fact: Your legs swell ever so slightly while you sleep due lớn your body’s increased temperature. That swelling can cover the base of the hairs on your legs. If you shave in the morning, your body toàn thân will cool & that slight swelling will go down, revealing the bristly hairs that you missed.

Instead, shave your legs at night khổng lồ guarantee the smoothest & tightest shave possible.

10. Go down before you go up

You might have been told that you get a closer shave when you go against the grain — up your leg rather than down. This is true, but if you haven’t shaved in a few days, you increase your risk of cuts & skin irritation by shaving upward first.

If your leg hairs are slightly longer than they usually get, give yourself a quick shave down your leg first. This will take the majority of the length off, & you can then shave upward (against the grain) lớn get the closest over result.

11. Replace razor blades regularly

Throw a little retirement các buổi tiệc nhỏ for your rusty old razor. It’s not doing you or your skin any favors!
