How To Keep Your Legs Smooth

Q: How can I keep my legs smooth after shaving?
A: The best way to keep your legs feeling smoother longer post shaving is to use a good moisturizer every day to keep the hair as soft as possible as it grows back in. Furthermore, you can actually use hair conditioner on your legs to do this. Apply the conditioner to your legs and allow it to sit for at least 3 minutes.

In fact, some women use conditioner in place of shaving creams, gels or lotions, simply because it softens the hair and makes it easier to cut, leaving a much smoother feel afterwards.
Another trick for longer-lasting smoothness after shaving is to use an exfoliating skin scrub on the legs. I generally recommend the kind that are made using light oils and mineral salts as opposed to things like seeds and ground shells, which can be irritating and hard to fully remove. (Not to mention some of these can get impacted if you have large pores in your skin.) These body scrubs help to keep the skin soft and the abrasiveness also works to soften the hairs and can even wear them down slightly, leaving them feeling less substantial.
