The Right Way To Shave Your Legs!

Shave & Shine Today!

It’s spring time, which means we’re all looking to go out and show some more of ourselves. This also means more SELF-CARE, most notably the shaving of our legs. Though this is a very common activity, it's not talked about as much as it should.

But just like there’s a good way of doing things, there’s a bad way too. This extends to shaving, and usually involves giving in to over-the-counter tricks and long-held taboos about shaving, hair removal, and what it means to be your TRUEST and MOST RADIANT self. (1)

Thankfully, shaving your legs doesn’t have to be a painful activity. In fact, it can be an awesome one, offering you the opportunity to not only LOOK YOUR BEST, but FEEL SMOOTH and HEALTHY when you go out this spring and summer!

In this blog we talk about the right way to shave your legs, and how you can enjoy RADIANT and NOURISHED skin today!







Reduce irritation and hydrate your legs with GARNER'S GARDEN 100% ALL-NATURAL AFTERSHAVE!



The first thing to know is that you should not feel embarrassed talking about shaving your legs, or if you have any questions on how to do it. It's super important you keep an eye on how you shave because not doing it right can have severe consequences. In fact, not shaving your legs correctly can lead to irritation that can leave you in serious pain and discomfort.

Bumps are common as a result of poor shaving habits and misuse or no use of certain shaving products. It’s also essential you keep your blades and your area clean, because bacteria can easily build up when shaving, potentially leading to infections - or worse. It’s also important you're careful because many times when in humid and wet environments, bacteria has a better chance of growing. (2) (3)

But beware! Don’t let potential shaving pitfalls keep you from looking and feeling your BEST! This is because shaving can not only make your skin look radiant, but it can also aid in exfoliation. Without shaving, you can build up irritants and dying skin that can make your skin look dull and lifeless, whereas, when you shave, your razor literally removes these things for you, acting as an efficient exfoliator.

QUICK TIP: Feeling irritation after shaving? Many use aftershave to soothe their bodies and fend off potential infections! Keep your skin looking and feeling its most radiant and beautiful self with the ALCOHOL-FREE and ALL-NATURAL INGREDIENTS in GARNER’S GARDEN 100% ALL-NATURAL WOMEN’S AFTERSHAVE today! (6)


Though shaving your legs seems like a simple activity, there are a lot of steps that need to be followed to ensure your shaving experience is a good one. The first step in shaving your legs is making sure your follicles are open and your hair is soft. Then, you need to apply shaving cream to the area. Third, you need to remember to shave your legs from the ankle on up. And remember: be sure you’re washing your razor each time you swipe it across your skin. (7)


Think you're done after shaving? Think again! After carefully shaving, it's time to use GARNER'S GARDEN 100% ALL-NATURAL WOMEN'S AFTERSHAVE, an ALCOHOL-FREE way to reduce the chances of your pores clogging and suffering due to pain and inflammation!


Once you have finished shaving your legs, you need to dry off. Your skin may feel a little sensitive now, which is why it’s so important you simply pat your skin dry without causing additional irritation or problems. But don't forget one of the most important steps in your shaving process: an ALL-NATURAL AFTERSHAVE, which can help moisturize your vulnerable skin and reduce potential inflammation. (7)

It’s also important you know what kind of blade to use. You don’t want to use a bad blade, which can potentially irritate your skin or increase the chances of you cutting yourself. If you feel your razor tugging at your leg hair, or if there is any kind of roughness on your skin, you need to change your blade immediately to avoid complications. (8)



Keep your skin in peak condition after shaving by using GARNER'S GARDEN 100% ALL-NATURAL WOMEN'S AFTERSHAVE, an ALCOHOL-FREE aftershave made with soothing witch hazel and essential oils that will moisturize your skin and leave it clean and refreshed after each shave!

Now once you have shaved, you need to know what to do with your skin. This is where aftershave comes in. Aftershave is not something to be overlooked, but be sure your aftershave is ALL-NATURAL. Alcohol can cause your skin further irritation, as can over-the-counter moisturizers with chemicals and artificial ingredients.

An ALL-NATURAL AFTERSHAVE can be absorbed quicker than many over-the-counter lotions, simultaneously offering you moisture and the glowing skin you want. The RIGHT AFTERSHAVE can diminish the amount of irritation you feel after shaving, and also lower your chances of getting an ingrown or razor burns. (9)


Feeling the burn after your shave? Fight bumps, burns, and ingrown hairs by soothing your skin with the ALCOHOL-FREE and ALL-NATURAL INGREDIENTS in GARNER'S GARDEN 100% ALL-NATURAL  AFTERSHAVE!


The other reason you should use ALL-NATURAL AFTERSHAVE is because your leg's skin is super dry. Shaving can make matters worse, which is why using the RIGHT OILS is so important. Oils can actually moisten your individual follicles, while lowering the chances of your hair getting caught inside your skin while shaving, hopefully leading to less patchiness and bumps. (10)


QUICK TIP: Aftershaves with alcohol can sting your skin. Look great and feel even better after using the ALCOHOL-FREE and ALL-NATURAL INGREDIENTS in GARNER’S GARDEN 100% ALL-NATURAL WOMEN’S AFTERSHAVE! (11)


Another reason why it’s so important you use aftershave is because hot water can make your skin dry too. This is common because it's advised you get your legs wet before you’ve started shaving. This can open your pores and get your individual follicles ready for shaving. Many people do this in a bath or shower.

It’s also important you don’t forget the aftershave because shaving can literally wipe away your own natural – and necessary - oils. You want to use something that can give your skin a REFRESH, while helping to keep you from drying out any further. (12)

Without proper moisture, your legs can suffer and look dry, which defeats the whole purpose of shaving your legs in the first place! It’s also important you’re gentle with yourself, and that you don’t try to rush anything. You’d be surprised how careful SELF-CARE can keep stubborn cuts from popping up. (13)



Don't forget: men need aftershave too! Fight razor bumps and burns after your man's shave with GARNER'S GARDEN 100% ALL-NATURAL MEN'S AFTERSHAVE, an ALCOHOL-FREE aftershave that remedies broken skin and softens skin immediately!
