Chlorine, salt and sun can rob your skin of the necessary and essential moisture that it needs. Add to that the irritation of frequent shaving, and your skin is in trouble!

However, there is no need to fret - Dove to the rescue - here are some of their quick and easy shaving secrets.

  • Not so fast. If you shave first thing in the morning, wait 15 minutes before you do so. When you wake up, skin can be sensitive, making shaving uncomfortable.
  • Soak before you stroke. Even if you use shaving cream, soak your skin for a few minutes before shaving for a smoother shave.
  • Go for quality. When shopping for a razor it may be tempting to go for the least expensive option. But cheap razors can make you pay the ultimate price with nicks, irritation and razor burn. Opt for a good quality razor that suits your needs and skin type i.e. sensitive skin, dry skin.
  • Soothe your skin. Ditch your harsh, drying deodorant. (Underarms contain only 1% sweat glands; the other 99% is skin). Instead, choose a product that moisturises and replenishes your skin to reduce potential irritation while providing all-day perspiration protection.
