Summer Shaving Tips for Girls

Summer is officially here - but are you ready to show off your legs? Before you shave your legs you have to know how to shave them properly, or else you'll end up with an uneven shave, stubble, nicks, cuts, infections, or razor rash! So check out Kidzworld's step-by-step guide to shaving your legs right here.

Shaving Tips - A Good Razor

If you're shaving your legs for the first time, be sure to use a new razor cuz a dull razor could irritate or infect your skin. Ask your mom or older sis to help you pick out a razor at the local drugstore cuz there are lots of choices, from disposables to ones where you change the blade after a certain number of uses.

Shaving Tips - Exfoliating

The first step to smooth, hair-free legs is... smooth skin! Scrub your legs down with an exfoliator, which will remove the buildup of dead skin cells and ingrown hairs. A good one to try is Fresh Brown Sugar Body Polish, which sounds yummy enough to eat! Make exfoliating the last step in your shower routine so that skin has plenty of time to absorb moisture for maximum sloughing.

Shaving Tips - Shaving

Now it's time to shave! Lather your legs with shaving gel (don't skimp on this cuz doing so could lead to nicks and cuts). If you're out of shaving gel, try hair conditioner or shampoo instead - it works just as well and leaves your skin soft and smooth. Gently glide your razor up your leg, in the opposite direction of hair's growth, but be careful when shaving your knees and ankles. Don't press down too hard cuz you could cut yourself. Rinse the razor well and let it air dry for the next time you use it.

Shaving Tips - Moisturizing

Pat your skin dry with a towel and immediately apply body lotion to trap in moisture and prevent any flaking. If you have sensitive skin, stay away from heavily-scented lotions, which could irritate your newly shaven legs. And if you've nicked yourself, apply anti-bacterial ointment on the cut right away.

Shaving Tips - Last Minute Tips

  • Shaving your legs last in the shower softens skin, opens pores and relaxes the hair, which will give you a closer shave.
  • Never shave on dry skin!
  • Always use warm water when shaving. Cold water gives you goose bumps, which you could accidentally shave off - ouch!

This is going to sound completely cliche, but the best thing is to just be yourself. You'll make friends no problem. People can tell when you're being genuine or not, and they definitely appreciate you for who you are more than if you tried to be someone else. You got this, it'll be a fun and exciting experience. :)

I am so sorry for your loss. It must be tough going through this at the moment, losing someone is always a difficult situation. Grief can be unsettling and uncomfortable, but is a normal and necessary part of grieving and getting yourself through these types of things. I encourage you to continue to remember her, whether it be through stories or drawings or other ways you might express your good memories together. You could also do something in her memory such as plant a tree. Healing from loss takes time. There's no magic fix that'll make you feel better overnight. You just have to let yourself go through the process and eventually you will feel better. I promise. I'm also here if you feel like talking about it at any time, just send me a request.

On a typical day I wear a pair of ripped jeans and either a hoodie or jacket, and a snapback. The opposite would probably be a dress lmao.

I also love expensive clothing. Brand names are my thing. But I always shop either during sale times or at second hand stores. Sales are my best friend, honestly. It might be frustrating to wait, but it's worth it in the end. Shop only on sale racks in big stores, and scout out smaller second hand stores that often carry brand names, never worn, but for a cheaper price.

Hello! I'm in need of urgent advice. The guy I have a crush on and I were best friends around two years ago. Somebody told him that I like him, and now he avoids me like the plague... I really just want to be friends with him again even if he doesn't like me back. What should I do? I'm quite an awkward girl, and I can't make conversation for the life of me. We're going into seventh grade, and I haven't talked to him nor seen him all summer. Please help!
