No matter how much of a hurry you are in – you should never go without using a shaving gel or foam when wet shaving. These ensure there is a film on the skin that allows the blade to move more smoothly and reduce the chance of nicks. They also usually contain ingredients that soothe the skin before it is shaved. If you use such products when removing hair, you will avoid wounding the skin, causing redness or small spots and will be able to show off your wonderfully smooth and silky skin.
Our tip for epilation and waxing: these work best when the skin is dry and free of oil. So do not apply cream for 24 hours in advance on the areas of the skin that you wish to remove hair from.
