How to shave your legs using oil and soap

Shave Your Legs Using Oil and Soap


Wet the skin with warm water

Take a handful of oil and massage it onto your skin

Lather up the soap in your hands and spread it all over the area. It should be a creamy-soapy feel.

Shave carefully and rinse your razor frequently. Rinse and you're all done! Your skin will feel amazing. Using soap alone dries out the skin, but oil protects it and you get a closer shave.
