Your Bump-Free Shaving Checklist

 Your Bump-Free Shaving Checklist

Have you been struggling to find the perfect shaving routine that leaves you feeling flawless in that new sundress, cute denim shorts, or beach swimwear? SAME.

Follow Root’s Bump-Free Shaving Checklist for a silky smooth shave that leaves you feeling confident and gorgeous in your own {freshly shaven} skin, without compromising healthy, safe ingredients! 

 

Step One

EXFOLIATE

And, I’m not just talking about right before you shave. Exfoliation shouldn’t be a one time thing. To reduce flakey skin around the hair follicle that builds up over time, make exfoliation with Root Organic Coconut Sugar Scrub part of your weekly routine (plus, it’s @MaddiePoppe’s fav)! To continuously get silky smooth skin, especially on your legs, you need to be exfoliating regularly. Organic Raw Cane Sugar granules work to massage away dead skin without the drying effects of salt scrubs, and Organic Virgin Coconut Oil soaks into skin while moisturizing and conditioning.

Step Two

USE SHAVING CREAM

Never. Ever. Ever. Shave dry! Wait until the end of your shower, and apply a thin layer of Root Coco Citrus Shaving Cream all over your legs. Warm, wet hair is much easier to shave than dry hair. Apply the Root Coco Citrus Shaving Cream against the direction of growth to lift the hair up. The Organic Aloe Leaf Juice, Organic Coconut Oil and Organic Shea Butter work to soften skin, giving your razor a super smooth base so that it glides effortlessly and prevents cuts on your legs. Cocoa Butter offers the extra dose of moisture you’re looking for.

Step Three

SHAVE WITH A CLEAN RAZOR

Avoid build up of hair and shaving cream on your razor by rinsing with every stroke. Shave with short, clean strokes, and glide the razor slowly while avoiding pressing too hard. Use sharp, fresh blades every time you shave, allowing the razor to cut the hair evenly and effortlessly. Dull blades can lead to cuts and razor burn... OUCH!

 

Step Four

FOLLOW WITH MOISTURE

Be speedy with your hydration! Pop on Root Peppermint Moisture Whip or Root Candy Moisture Whip immediately after drying. These both cool and moisturize the freshly shaved skin. Moisture Whips will coat your skin in a deep, moisturizing mix of skin-loving ingredients including Organic Aloe Leaf Juice, Organic Chamomile Flower Extract, Shea Seed Butter, Sunflower Seed Oil, and Vitamin E.

Step Five

GET THE GLOW

Follow with Root Instant Glow Bronzing Lotion for a gorgeous, dewy summer tan in minutes. Totally optional, but totally worth it! The Instant Glow Bronzing Lotion has Organic Aloe Leaf Juice and Organic Coconut Oil that deeply hydrate and moisturize while giving you a luminous glow. Summer. In. A. Bottle.

SUFFERING FROM RAZOR BURN?

First of all, check your blade. Have you sharpened your blade or swapped it out for a new one in a while? Do that now. Use Root Beauty Sleep Perfecting Serum on the irritated area to calm redness and itching. Two amazing ingredients - Organic Helichrysum Essential Oil and Organic Grape Seed Oil work to clear up dreaded razor burn. With restoring properties, rich vitamins and proteins, this duo works to soothe irritated skin, blemishes and ingrowns.
