01 Get glowing: Self-tanners and shavingBecause shaving exfoliates skin, it's a must for getting a gorgeous glow. Whether you choose a shimmering bronzer or a moisturizing lotion that gradually builds a healthy color, exfoliating and shaving with your favoriteVenus razor will help with an even, flawless application.
Depending on the formula, dark-tinted self-tanner may settle more in pores, so consider shaving the night before to achieve a beautiful, even bronze.
02 Shaving for the perfect tanShaving can actually help boost your tan by removing dull, flaky skin that diminishes a healthy glow. Always use an SPF moisturizer, but if you accidentally get sunburnt, give your skin a chance to heal before you shave again to avoid further irritation
03 A beach-perfect bikini lookWhen shaving your bikini area, wait 24 hours before sun exposure to protect the sensitive skin. Since bikini area hairs are naturally coarser, soak hair in warm water and try a shave gel, like Satin Care Sensitive Skin. Hold skin taut so that it's level—like the skin on your legs. First shave in the direction of hair growth to shorten, then against the grain for extra closeness. Rinse the area in cool water to close pores—and moisturize.
04 Summer shaving dos & don'tsSmooth skin in summer is a must! Shaving hair regularly—especially bikini hair—and moisturizing often will keep your legs glowing all summer long. If you’re going to hit the beach or the pool, think ahead and shave the night before to avoid skin irritation caused by sun, salt or chlorine.05
