While cups of hot cocoa and big, cozy sweaters can do wonders for your mood, winter doesn’t have the same pleasant effects on your skin—which is probably why you’ve switched to rich cream cleanser and upgraded your night cream, giving your face the extra TLC it needs. But what about your legs? If your shaving habits haven’t changed with the season (other than cutting way, way back in frequency), it’s time to give your gams some much-needed attention.
Scroll through to find how to shave and care for your legs in the winter!
This is quality tip year-round, but it’s especially important during the colder months. Save your shave for the end of your shower—the warmth and humidity not only softens the hair, but also increases skin elasticity, which minimizes irritation. And try holding your razor under the stream of water for 10 seconds to warm the blades. This helps improve your razor’s glide, further protecting your skin.
