Shaving Beauty Hacks
- Protect your razor from rusting by applying olive oil on it in between shaves and after you’re done shaving.
- After shaving apply a layer of baby oil on the area for a smoother result.
- Don’t have shaving cream? Any type of hair conditioner you own works just fine (tested and proven).
- Get rid of pilling on your clothes with a sharp shaving razor. Simply get that piece of clothing and stretch it out so you don’t accidentally snag and cut the fabric. And go ahead and start “shaving” the little bumps in small motions. You will need to stop every once in a while and tap your razor firmly on a hard surface to unclog its blade.
- Styling your hair with heat? Gonna take a while? Apply deodorant on the back of your neck to avoid sweating.
