With steamy weather finally upon us, and lots of skin on the fashion forefront,
Master Barber for King of Shaves, Diane Wood offers women tricks to achieving
their smoothest shave ever!

Shave at Night: Shaving removes dead skin cells and the superficial layer of the epidermis reducing skin’s defenses. Try shaving in the evening to avoid exposing weakened skin to external elements.

Do it in the Shower: Warm, wet hair is three times easier to shave than dry. Therefore, try to shave during a shower, thoroughly wetting hair with warm water for at least three minutes. Also try to exfoliate skin before shaving to prevent in-grown hairs.

Use a Low Foam Formula Shaving Gel: Opt for a low foam gel such as King of Shaves Woman rather than foamy gels or plain soap and water which can rob skin of moisture, leaving it dry and irritated.

For the Smoothest Stems: Start at the ankles and shave upwards. Shave from the bottom of the ankle, gently gliding the blade up the leg, in one smooth stroke. Take extra care and shave slowly when shaving areas where bone is close to the skin surface, such as ankles and knees.

Be Flexible: Remember to flex the heel to stretch the skin while shaving to avoid nicks and cuts that often occur behind the ankle.

Bikini Babe: Follow the natural direction of hair growth to prevent irritation, particularly in the bikini area. Do not press too hard; let the blade do the work.

Up in Arms: Underarm hair grows in different directions; thus one must shave up, down and across. To prevent razor burn and ingrown hairs, pull skin tight with one hand, while shaving with the other. Re-apply shaving gel regularly.

Post-Shave: Thoroughly rinse any remaining gel from skin. Avoid exposing skin to any potential irritants (i.e. lotions, fragrance or salt water) for an hour to allow skin’s pores to close.

Introducing King of Shaves Woman!

Today, King of Shaves - the best selling UK brand – is not only one of the fastest growing lines of men’s shaving & skincare products, but is now also embracing the world of women’s shaving. The new King of Shaves Woman shaving products use low foam formulations to help create the perfect platform for a close, smooth and supple shave. They are specially formulated to significantly reduce razor burn and skin irritation – leaving legs, bikini and underarms soft, smooth and intensely moisturized.

Natural or naturally derived alternatives to synthetic ingredients have been used to help make the gels extra gentle and skin nourishing, while also being more biodegradable and better for the environment.  Containing only mild preservatives, no parabens and free of sodium lauryl sulfate and sodium laureth sulfate, the range is formulated with surfactant systems that are derived from natural sources such as vegetables, coconut and sugar.

King of Shaves Woman is a range of superior performing shaving products designed to give maximum effect with minimum effort.

The ingredients for each product have been chosen carefully, scrupulously tested, and combined for the ultimate shave. Packed with fruit essences, Aloe Vera, Peppermint Oil, and Tea Tree Oil each shave will be as refreshing as the first.

King of Shaves Woman was originally launched in 2001 to coincide with the launch of the 3-bladed Gillette Venus razor and the range was revamped in 2004 with more feminine packaging. In 2008 the gels were reformulated using the latest King of Shaves technology and the packaging was also revised to give it a premium, modern, fresher feel.
