Morning Or Night? This Is The Best Time Of Day To Shave Your Legs, Apparently
And it makes total sense.
Confession time: our leg shaving habits can be a tad slap dash, and often our pins will only get a decent lick of a razor when we’ve a last minute date planned or need to be at the bar to meet up with our besties STAT.
But for the super organised (i.e those with regular shaving habits) there’s a hack that may help to prolong those silky smooth results and it’s all to do with shaving at the correct time of day.
That’s right, according to Good Housekeeping, if you want to stay fuzz-free for longer then you’ll need to forgo shaving first thing in the morning, and instead do it late at night.
Experts tell the mag “we should be shaving our legs before bed. This is because, as we sleep, our legs become warm and swell slightly which means that the little hairs we may have missed retreat back into their follicles and are less obvious. Consequently, while your legs are still warm in the morning, they will appear smoother.”
While that’s great advice we’re nearly certain that we won’t be using it all that much. After all, it’s getting cold out meaning that it’s perfectly acceptable to skip the razor and just wear tights.
Autumn/winter, oh how we love you!
