Are you getting the smoothest shave possible?

While Cupid may prick you with his arrow this Valentine’s Day, make sure you don’t prick others with stubbly, unshaven legs. Whether you’re flaunting a short skirt on a romantic date or sporting pajama shorts while watching “Kill Bill” with your boycotting buddies, having silky, smooth legs is the best way to give your skin the love it needs. Pure Silk Moisturizing Shave Cream has seven formulas perfectly tailored for your skin and grooming needs. Pure Silk’s aloe-enriched formula helps ensure a clean shave so that you (and your skin) don’t get “irritated” this Valentine’s Day.

Here are a few tips from the Pure Silk experts on how to properly shave your legs, underarms and bikini line so that razor burn and nicks don’t leave you wearing the wrong kind of red this Valentine’s Day:

Plumeria is my favorite of the Pure Silk line. It smells amazing and helps me get the smoothest, nick free shave.

Legs:
Make sure your skin has been wet for at least three minutes before shaving. This is about the amount of time it takes for hairs to absorb water and lift away from the skin, making it easier for them to be shaved. Take your time when shaving, especially around the ankles and knees, where you’re more likely to get nicks and cuts. Pure Silk Moisturizing Shave Cream in Cherry Blossom or Plumeria will leave you with a subtle, floral scent so you won’t have to rely on your man for that pending flower delivery (that he forgot to order).

Underarms:
When shaving underarms, use a “star” pattern – shave up and down and from side to side to get all the hairs, which in this area of the body grow in a very random pattern. Shaving in a star pattern also helps cut down on irritation from too many razor strokes

Bikini:
Hair in the bikini area grows in a random, often circular pattern. Make sure to shave in the direction of hair growth to reduce irritation. Try shaving with Pure Silk Moisturizing Shave Cream for Sensitive Skin, which contains aloe, papaya, thyme and willow bark formula to help soothe skin and prevent irritation.

The Pure Silk® Moisturizing Shave Cream family includes seven lightly scented formulas that are all designed to enhance and enrich your shaving experience while protecting skin from razor burn, nicks and cuts.

The manicure tip you wish you’d heard years ago – that will make your color last (chip-free) for a week!

A while back I was given a manicure tip that honestly, I didn’t think much of. I thought “meh” – I bet it doesn’t work. But then, as I was sitting here this morning typing, I was looking down at my nails. I realized I painted them LAST SATURDAY and I don’t have one single chip! How’d I do it?

TIP: To keep your nails looking fresh, chip-free, and looking otherwise fabulous….. apply a thin layer of topcoat to your nail polish every day.

That’s it! That’s all it takes! I’ve tried this trick over the past week – and I’ll be darned if it doesn’t actually work. On all 10 fingers – I have not one single chip. 6 days chip-free? That’s pretty unbelievable.

What do you have to lose? You’ll thank us later… I promise.

PS: Here’s the topcoat I use and love.

Nail Life Speed Demon Polish Dryer is a chip-proof top coat that protects polish from fading.

  • Gives polish a high gloss finish
  • Protects polish from fading
