Friday Fact

Exfoliate your legs before shaving them.


Now, I don't know whether everyone new that but me, but I always used to exfoliate my legs after shaving as I thought that would get me closer to the dead skin cells. Lovely thought, right? Well, so I've heard, exfoliating first softens the hair, lessening the chance of ingrown hairs (yum) and also stops the likely hood of your legs becoming sore, as exfoliating afterwards is too harsh on the skin.

Did you know this, or am I helping a sister out?

Boys have it so lucky.

  1. I HATE doing this too. But good fact :) I used to just do it whatever order I thought of it but makes sense to do it before! xxxx

  2. I've exfoliated after shaving my legs before, it was so painful! Guess I should've read the disclaimer on the scrub beforehand! But exfoliating before hand makes my legs so soft after shaving!

  3. It makes sense but I always exfoliate afterwards. My legs have been more sensitive recently though so maybe I'll start doing this :).

  5. I've never heard of doing this, but seems like it would be interesting to test out! I have to confess I'm terrible at shaving my legs or general hair removal when it comes to my legs ... probably why I live in pants or black tights most of the time :p
