Has your shaving routine gotten away from you? It's time to get those legs looking sleek ladies! Shaving is no one's favorite task but smooth, bump-free skin is something everyone wants. Have you wondered how to get smooth legs? Using the proper tools and abiding by a few basic shaving tips you can achieve a fabulous shave.
How to Get Smooth Legs
- Avoid regular bar soap – it is a moisture thief. If you are in a pinch, hair conditioner is a better fix in lieu of a specialty shaving product.
- Exfoliate often. Don't let your razor get dulled by a bunch of dead skin cells. Take a second to exfoliate with a body mitt, brush or scrub.
- Use a good moisturizing shaving cream to soften skin and hair while allowing the razor to glide smoothly.
- Apply after shave treatments to soothe any irritation and act as a protectant.
- Shave with the direction of the hair growth if bumps are a problem. If this does not get it smooth enough you can always go back against the growth once the hairs are super short. There will be less friction and pulling after doing that.
- If bumps still persist try a men's razor for your bikini area – they are designed for coarser hair.
- Always use a good quality razor, replacing it often to avoid using a dull blade.

I will have to look for Cremo, never heard of that brand.
Thank you for the tips. I have found a few new products to try.
Does anyone know of an electric razor that is made in the US?
I’ve never understood the idea of shaving in the direction of hair growth. It never gets the smoothness most people want. (At least not for me, lol. Maybe I’m just a hairy person??)
These are all good tips, I definitely agree with exfoliating and using a sharp razor.
I have to be really careful when I shave, because I am on blood thinners. A simple cut can become a much larger issue for me. I was amazed to realize that I don’t do any of your tips! In fact, it appears I am failing on a big level. Thanks for the tips I will start to do these.
