When shaving your legs, use baby oil, coconut oil or argan oil – not shaving cream. Dermatologist Dr. Whitney Bowe says the chemicals in aerosol creams can dehydrate the skin. But baby oil is hydrating. Plus, it makes hairs swell – so you’ll get a closer shave. You’ll also reduce the buildup of dead skin cells, so they won’t clog pores and contribute to ingrown hairs. One more benefit? Oil allows the razor to move more easily, so you reduce the risk of razor burn. So try baby oil instead of shaving cream.
