Super-Smooth Shaving Guide - Tips on How To Properly Shave Your Legs

Shaving your legs for the first time is a pretty big deal. So who did you turn to for support? Mum? Dad? Sister? BFF? They had good intentions, but their methods might have failed. Because with no one there to show us how to shave, we had to jump in and face our fears (and legs) the old school way. That’s when we became familiar with the messy, sometimes bloody (whoops!), and often rusty experiences that give shaving such a bad name.

Growing up, shaving wasn’t always as smooth as it could be. The nicks, cuts, missed areas, and prickly irritation were simply not okay. To save you from further harm, here are Estrid-approved tips for your safest, softest & smoothest shave yet. Save them, share them, and live by them the next time you shave your legs. Whether you’re a rookie or a skilled master with a razor blade, shaving your legs will become a breeze once you follow these tips for a stress-free shave.

A Quick Guide On How To Shave Your Legs Like A Pro

Shaving is no walk in the park. But don’t worry - with this guide, you’ll soon be shaving your legs with fresh, fierce, and razor-sharp confidence.

The razor must be sharp

A dull blade is destined to become the rusty companion your skin and body hair can do without. It’s a one-stop ticket to nicks, cuts, and skin irritations that ain’t welcome here.

Dry skin shaving? It’s a NO from us.

Shaving on dry skin is a quick way to dull your blade. Or to get to those nasty nicks that keep bleeding, no matter how much toilet paper you throw their way. Oh, and please never skip on moisturizing your legs. Honestly, that’s the kind of stuff we’ll tell our grandchildren one day. To do so, hop in the shower or soak in your bathtub before you shave. Rinse your legs with clean water, shave with razor-sharp confidence, and add a layer of Mood: Bodyshot to lock in that hydration.

Use a silky shaving cream

For a smooth ride, you’ll need a proper glide. Well, our shaving cream was put on this earth to do just that. Whilst in the shower, apply a layer of our vegan shaving cream, grab your Estrid razor, and shave. The protective formula keeps your legs soft, supple, and moisturized. It also acts as a trusty guide so you’ll never miss a spot again.

All good things take time. And hey, shaving your legs is no exception. Keep on reading if you want to be on the safe side and avoid cuts, nicks, and irritated skin.

  • Shave with that Beyonce confidence - long, upward and steady strokes
  • Be kind to your body. You don’t need to push hard along the way
  • Give your razor a quick rinse to get rid of the fuzz after each glide
  • Pay extra attention to your body’s beautiful curves (ankles and knees)
  • Slightly bend when following the natural curve of your knee
  • Keep your leg straight when it’s time to glide above the knee
