Some summer shaving reminders and tips that can keep your skin looking great! (1) Exfoliate! A key ingredient to a successful summer shaving routine is exfoliation. (2) Shave at the end of your shower. Soaking your skin for 10-15 minutes before you shave can open your pores and soften your hairs, making it a smoother experience. (3) Use short strokes. Using shorter strokes can help you avoid going over the same area multiple times and gives you a closer shave. (4) Last but not least, finish up by moisturizing.
