It’s lockdown and not a holiday from your usual beauty routines and especially not from your usual body hair removal! FINO Cosmetics has compiled a list of shaving tips to leave you hair-free and silky smooth without the discomfort!

If you regularly remove body hair please keep it up. If you normally go to a salon you’ll need to find ways of doing this routine at home. And for some it will mean to use a dreaded razor as shaving is still the world’s number one method of hair removal.

You’re going to have to protect against INGROWN HAIR, redness, itchiness and tender skin and that’s where FINO Soothe WOMAN comes in. This aftercare balm is full of natural enzymes and vitamins and is designed for all skin types and tones.  It protects against ingrown hair and red tender skin after any form of hair removal.  This fragrance free formulation is Dermatologically Tested and can be used anywhere on the body.  Bonus!! It also protects against itchiness with new hair growth.

FINO Cosmetics has compiled a list of Shaving Tips to leave you hair-free and silky smooth without the discomfort!

Exfoliate before shaving to lift hair – exfoliation helps rid the skin of dead cells, so that your razor doesn’t get clogged up with them, but by lifting the hair, it also allows you to get a closer shave.

Change your blades / razor regularly – to ensure a smooth shave, be sure to replace your razor (if it’s disposable), or blades, regularly. Old blades are ineffective and more likely to cause irritation, or trap bacteria.

Don’t shave as soon as you hit the shower – allowing the steam / water to soften hair and open up the hair follicles will make getting a close shave easier.

Don’t dry-shave – no matter what the circumstances, it’s never a good idea to shave dry skin! Applying a moisturising shaving cream will allow the razor to glide easily over your skin and you’ll avoid getting nicks and cuts. Dry-shaving causes irritation and will almost always leave you with painful cuts.

Keep the temperature moderate – hot water scalds the skin and causes dehydration, so make sure the temperature is moderate when you shave.

Make sure your razor is right for you – there are so many different razors on the market, and like with skincare products, everyone has their favourite. If you’re not 100% happy with yours, shop around until you find your favourite. There’s no point in settling for second best.

Limit your pressure – razor blades are designed to cut hair across a flat surface. If you press the razor onto your skin, you’ll “dent” the skin, creating an uneven surface, which makes shaving more difficult. Plus, the harder you press, the more likely you are to nick the skin.

Remember to always apply FINO Sooth woman after shaving and all forms of hair removal.
