Guide: How to shave your legs

Step by step: How to get smooth and silky legs
1. Warm up the skin before you start shaving. We recommend you take a warm bath, as the warm water softens the hairs and makes the skin less irritated. It is therefore a good idea to shave during or just after the bath - preferably in a warm room.

2. Afterwards, pat your legs dry with a towel.

3. Apply a preshave to soften the hairs and lay a protective layer so that the razor does not cut the skin itself, but instead grabs the stubble. By giving your razor an easier glide, the risk of irritation and beard plague is reduced, and you get a closer and much more comfortable shave.

4. Squeeze your shaving foam into your hand and distribute it on your legs. Let the foam sit for a moment to allow it to penetrate.

5. Shave the legs with your razor. Always remember to shave with the direction of hair growth to avoid ingrown hairs and unnecessary irritation. You must also remember to rinse the razor blade in hot water often.

6. Finish with an aftershave to prevent dryness and reduce the risk of redness. An aftershave maintains the skin's moisture balance and soothes the skin with its caring ingredients.
