beauty tip tuesday: fuzz-fighting

Here are a few tricks of the trade for achieving stubble-free skin at home this summer!

To avoid razor burn and ingrown hairs, try using a blade designed for men.  I like the Gilette Fusion Pro Glide Razor.  The 5 blades make all of the difference!  You'll get a super close shave in less passes, without irritation.

Remember to shave at the END of your shower!  The warm water causes blood vessels to dilate, causing the skin follicle to open easily.  The warm water also helps to soften hairs, making them less likely to break and cause in-growns.

Using a hydrating shave cream (look for formulas with shea butter) helps too!
