Summer-Ready Party Legs with Schick Hydro Silk RazorTuesday, November 12, 2013
Hello Summer (in Australia, anyway)! Today, Schick Hydro Silk Razor is bringing you tips to create the perfect legs in preparation for the short shorts and the sun-dresses that will come with the hotter weather.
To create the perfect summer legs for going out or for a party, you must first make sure to moisturise. Step into the shower right before you shave your legs, to soften the skin.
Use the Schick Hydro Silk razor to shave your legs, shaving in the opposite direction of your hair growth, and using long, even strokes and very light pressure. The razor comes with a moisturising serum that keeps your skin moisturised for up to two hours, so this is perfect to prep your skin a few hours before your party. This serum is water-activated, so remember to run the blade under water before you start shaving.
When you're getting ready to head out, apply a BB cream to your legs. BB creams are available from so many different brands, so it's easy to get a BB cream that is affordable enough to use on your entire leg area. This will even out your skin tone and hide any unsightly scars or bruises.\
You can add a tiny bit of shimmer powder or highlighting liquid to your BB cream to make your legs look smoother and more radiant.
To make your legs look longer, apply a highlighting liquid or cream directly onto the centre of your legs, going all the way down. Pat the liquid or cream in, being careful not to blend or spread it too much.
Voila! Your legs are ready for a good night out!
A few tips to take note of to get the perfect shave:
It is best to soak your skin in warm water, or to splash warm water on it, for a few minutes before shaving, to soften the skin.
Change your blade regularly, because clean, sharp blades make it easier to shave, and help you avoid using too much pressure when shaving, which can cause bruises and cuts.
Applying a shaving cream or gel before shaving helps to soften the skin and hairs, which makes for an easier shave.
The easiest position in which to shave is sitting on the edge of a bathtub, with your feet inside the tub.
Rinse your blade regularly whilst shaving to wash away any hair stuck in the razor blades.
The Schick Hydro Silk Razor kit is available at Woolworths, Coles, Pricelines, and pharmacies nationally, for AUD 14.25.
