  • I actually shave downwards and then upwards when I feel some hair left. Honestly, ever since then I havent had a single cut or razor burn or even bumps on my skin.

  • I don’t know why but I’m scared to shave…! So I’ve never shave in 12 years and I have really hairy legs so I don’t wear shorts::

  • I want to stop shaving my legs because I am having a terrible experience with razors. My legs start itching and are full of bruises caused by the razor:(

    PS: I don’t know what to do I am so self-conscious about the way my legs look that I only wear pants (even in summer)

  • Thank you for this! I am 14 years old and I just started shaving. My mom is always busy and has no time to teach me how to shave the right way. This video really helped, and I tried the DIY body scrub, I love it!!!!!!! Thanks again!

  • “tendency to have strawberry skin and a lot of ingrown hairs can be genetic”

    me: great ��✌�� i probably had a great grandma with this issue since my grandmas and my mom have like no hair on their legs. i love life ❤️��✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨

  • Omg i’ve been shaving downwards for 2 years and all of these comments are saying they shave upwards �� well time to change my routine

  • Just tried the scrub thing and yeah it left my legs smooth but idk if it was the oil or what lol if you are planning on doing it I would recommend just doing a little of it to try it out bc my dumbass made a lot and just poured it on both of my legs and then tried to wash it out but it was a big pain I also almost felled faced front cuz of the oil so then I had to battle with almost falling and trying to get rid of the freakin coffee once I stabilized myself and used conditioner I was too tired so I only shaved half of both of my legs… I will shave the rest tomorrow….

  • I also suggest you DONT use shaving cream. Using conditioner softens the hair more and glides the razor more easily. But do wait 1-2 minutes, especially if you are shaving down there

  • well i am 14 and i shave my legs half of it for some reason also im very hairy woman which is bad..but i shave daily like once week i sometimes see more hair come out but doesnt mean im becoming more hairy right please i need opnion.

  • So true! I got MRSA from using Dollar shave club razor between my thighs. Follow doctors orders! Mrsa bumps r painful and life threatening

  • I don’t shave as soon as I get into the shower I wash my hair first cause it takes the longest then I wash my upper body and then my legs and feet lmao

  • Two brilliant Doctors that are capable of teaching us amazing medical breakthroughs and all I learned is that you need shaving cream to shave. Poor audience got robbed.


    Too many quick passes with the blade. One pass per hairy area – going 1-2 inches downward at a time – will prevent ingrown hairs. Always shave like you might cause damage, not like your mowing the front yard lawn.

    Too many blades! If you are prone to ingrown hairs then you don’t need 3 or more blades.

    Pressing too hard on the skin with the blade. A gliding, light touch is all you need. This is likely your biggest issue. So follow #4

    You should be using a warm/hot water prep (5 mins). Then leave the shaving creme on for more than 3 minutes to really soften the hair. The hair stubble should literally fall away with little or no pressure at all. Pressing hard is the problem! Be gentle ya’ll.

    Using a blade that’s been used way too many times. Yes, this one may be obvious, but be sure to keep your used tools as clean as possible. Soap and rubbing alcohol will destroy bacteria.

    Use of skin/pore clogging cremes or lotions. These keep hairs from growing up. After a shave, keep your skin bare; let the tiny army breath, and allow those newly shaved, really small, microscopic hairs to grow out just in time for the next shave.

    Exfoliation removes excess layers of skin and prevents shorn hair from regrowing towards the skin and from becoming trapped beneath the skin. Brushing teases the hairs away. Use an ingrown hair brush as directed.

    Shaving too many times. This rule is hard to follow especially if you have to shave for your career but if you are prone to ingrowns, try shaving with an electric clipper. The results are not super close but no one but you will know the difference. Ladies, try waxing.

    Shaving against the grain. Shave in the direction of hair growth (usually down, but perform a face map to be sure).

    Avoid tight fitting clothing around the Adam’s apple (neck) and/or below the waistline region.

  • I love i gugs and u live in trinidad still i come caribbean cimer or u gugs live some wgher eals love u sooóoo much i want to meet u ❤❤❤❤❤❤❤��������

  • I prefer men’s razors to women’s ��‍♀️ I think they work better also I hate body hair but hate shaving and I wear pants basically all year round so I just give up sometimes

  • closeted trans girl family obviously doesnt know nor would support the fact that im trans, so i have to do stuff like shave my legs in private. im really nervous to do it, and now im waiting until my mom wakes up so i can get my things for my shower without waking her up.

  • I get better results with waxing but it’s very time consuming. When I went to india I brought one those of wax heaters but often time I find myself getting annoyed that the process is too long so I give up and just shave ��

  • TIP: apply your moisturizer when your skin is damp
    Damp skin absorbs the moisture better then in dry skin
    Try it and you’ll notice a difference
    If you have dry skin or stretch marks you’ll notice a difference

  • you can shave against the grain as a man just prep the skin and soften the beard then first shave with the grain then cross the grain left to right then right to left last against the grain post shave rens use after shave made to prevent ingrown hair i do it all the time no problem

  • You don’t want to shave when you first get into the shower as the hair is the most course, you want to wait till it’s moistened and softer and wet then your good to go.

    Dry shaving not to do, cream shave. Close shave. Can also use hair conditioner to.

    Shaving upwards your going against the grain, which means you will get cut and nicks in the skin which can cause infections and razor burn.

  • I am so tired of shaving my legs every week its a battle i can’t win my hair on my legs are course i want to be able to shave my legs once a month i am going wax my legs for the first time even though i don’t want to wax my legs but shaving is not cutting it more

  • If the idea of shaving your legs at night is because your legs swell and the hairs retreat back into the skin is beyond my comprehension. If the hairs retreat, that means that you are shaving less amount of hairs and when the legs are not swollen, the hair that you didn’t shave, comes back out and your legs are NOT smooth any longer. Just because you’re a doctor does not mean that you have all the answers.

  • Thanks for your advice on shaving,what about shaving your armpits,do we apply shaving cream,the gel,under the armpits as well?God bless you,ad have a blessed day,Jesus love y,ad cares for y,ad us all amen����������������������������
