Can I shave on top of a sunburn ?

First of all, you should never, ever get sunburnt so apply your sunscreen carefully and reapply it as often as necessary. But accidents can happen and if you ever get red skin, the last thing you will want is to irritate it even more. So be gentle to yourself, soothe your skin with a hydration cream and wait before you tamper with it again. You can go with a day or two of hair growth -after all, you won't want to bare your legs in the sun for a while.

The answer is yes, but in that order! First of all, you have to wash and exfoliate, before you shave carefully. You can then apply your self-tan lotion thoroughly, with a glove if necessary to get as close to a beauty salon result as possible. Remember: your skin has to be smooth for your self-tanner to be efficient, so start exfoliating days in advance. And you should really moisturize every day, but you already know that, right?

Epilator

Epilator

Epilators remove the hair from the root. Just like waxing, it lasts longer than other methods. The equipment can be expensive and some women find their skin not as smooth as it could be with other methods. It can be painful and irritate your skin, especially on sensitive areas like underarms or bikini. Also, it might not remove very short hair: with some epilators, you have to wait for it to grow a little before using your epilator. So, it’s not a convenient solution when the sun is back and you want to wear your beautiful dress or your new swimsuit!

Remember that your skin is at its most sensitive immediately after the shave, so dry your skin by gently ‘patting’ it with a soft towel. Rubbing will cause friction and will make the area hot and more sensitive.

Make sure you prepare your skin with a specially formulated shaving cream or gel. With a shaving gel, the shaver glides more easily over your skin, thus avoiding skin irritations. Use gel rather than normal soap. It’s more gentle for your skin. Spread the gel and leave it two minutes on your skin before shaving.

Alternative methods

Epilator

Epilator

Epilators remove the hair from the root. Just like waxing, it lasts longer than other methods. The equipment can be expensive and some women find their skin not as smooth as it could be with other methods. It can be painful and irritate your skin, especially on sensitive areas like underarms or bikini. Also, it might not remove very short hair: with some epilators, you have to wait for it to grow a little before using your epilator. So, it’s not a convenient solution when the sun is back and you want to wear your beautiful dress or your new swimsuit!

Alternative methods

Depilatory Cream

Depilatory Cream

Depilatory creams use a chemical compound to remove the hair. It’s easy to use and leave your skin very smooth. 

But the smell can be really disturbing. Also it takes more time than just shaving, and the chemicals can cause irritation on sensitive skins.

Alternative methods

Waxing

Waxing

Waxing eliminates the root of the hair. As it needs time to regenerate, the effects last longer and the more you wax, the less your hair regrow. But be careful: waxing is expensive and painful. Also, waxing doesn’t work on very short hair: you have to wait for it to grow a little before waxing. So, it’s not a convenient solution when the sun is back and you want to wear your beautiful dress or your new swimsuit!

What is the best after-shave procedure to follow?

What is the best after-shave procedure to follow?

Remember that your skin is at its most sensitive immediately after the shave, so dry your skin by gently ‘patting’ it with a soft towel. Rubbing will cause friction and will make the area hot and more sensitive. 

Shaving removes the dead cells on the top of your skin. Apply an after shave balm or an alcohol-free moisturising cream, to soothe and protect the skin.

I have dry skin, what can I do to prepare it before shaving?

Make sure you prepare your skin with a specially formulated shaving cream or gel. With a shaving gel, the shaver glides more easily over your skin, thus avoiding skin irritations. Use gel rather than normal soap. It’s more gentle for your skin. Spread the gel and leave it two minutes on your skin before shaving.
