How to Get the Perfect Shave
There’s something so lovely about the feeling of freshly shaved legs in all of their silky and smooth glory. Shaving can also be a delicate matter; finding a routine that does not irritate the skin or leave it feeling dried out can be tricky. This is where the recipe for the perfect shave comes in. Using all-natural products with high quality ingredients, this routine will leave your precious skin feeling healthy and refreshed. This do it yourself (DIY) scrub paired with the magic of aloe vera and calendula oil will have your legs feeling silky soft with a natural glow.
Prep the Skin
Before showering, use a natural bristled brush to dry brush your skin. Dry brushing helps to exfoliate the skin, boost circulation, do away with dead skin cells, aid in lymphatic drainage and plump the skin. Brush from the ankle upward with slightly firm pressure, always brushing towards your heart. Dry brush the skin for 3-5 minutes.
DIY Scrub and Shave
First up, create a DIY scrub. Mix four parts organic sugar with one-part Bodyceuticals Coconut and Aloe Body Oil. Gently massage the scrub onto the desired skin area you would like to shave. Rinse the skin. Then, shave the area for a smooth finish. Sugar helps to exfoliate the skin by gently bringing healthy skin to the surface. Sugar also brightens dull and tired skin and can even help get rid of ingrown hairs. The Bodyceuticals Coconut and Aloe Body Oil is ultra-moisturizing and is filled with fatty acids, vitamins, and antioxidants. The lightweight formula of this oil leaves your skin feeling silky soft for long-lasting moisture. Double or even triple the recipe and store in the shower in a jar or create a few jars to give as a lovely gift to friends and family for any special occasion.
Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize
We all know the importance of applying moisture after a shower and this definitely includes those luscious legs! First, spritz Bodyceuticals Aloe Skin Soothing Spray all over your legs. You can also use this spray anywhere on the body after a shower. This spray combines the power of aloe vera, neroli blossom and calendula flowers to help soothe and hydrate the skin in a convenient spray bottle. For added soothing, you can even store this one in the fridge for a wonderful cooling effect. Next up, apply the one and only golden oil: Bodyceuticals Calendula Oil. This soothing oil works wonders for the skin by deeply penetrating the skin with its rich moisture. This oil is full of vitamins, antioxidants, essential fatty acids, plant compounds and natural enzymes. This oil is the ultimate skin healer and your legs will definitely soak in all the benefits of this oil. For another layer of moisture, go ahead and use the Bodyceuticals Coconut and Aloe Body Oil that you used in the DIY scrub. This oil will give your skin that wonderful glow and a warm coconut scent.
Cheers to silky smooth skin!
