Humidify your skin:
to shave parts of your body, a good first step is to shower with warm water beforehand and exfoliate at the same time. This will help to soften your skin, but also remove dead skin.
Apply shaving cream:
you also should use shaving cream, not soap to shave. The latter may have an astringent effect on your skin, drying it out and causing flaky skin.
contrary to your face, you want to shave against the direction of growth.
Rinse with cool water:
when preparing your skin to shave, you want your pores to open, but when it’s done, you want them to close again. Rinsing with cold water will enable the pores to close back up and prevent bacteria from getting in.
Finish with a moisturiser:
applying moisturiser will help to avoid the flakiness of your skin. The NIVEA Express Hydration Body Lotion
is formulated with NIVEA’s Deep Moisture Serum and sea minerals to protect the skin and provide 48-hour hydration, without leaving behind a greasy appearance.
