Tips for women

Shaving problems, solved.

“So excited to shave,” said nobody ever. We get it. But at BIC, we’ve discovered tons of smart ways to make shaving better. Maybe they’ll make you love shaving just a little bit.


Shave your underarm with your arm raised — it’s easier to shave a flat surface.


A razor with a pivoting head will help you shave your ankles smoothly.


Before shaving, expose hair to warm water for a few minutes to soften it.


Duller blades mean more potential for skin irritation. Change your razor regularly.

Step 1: Timing is Everything

  • When you shave can be as important as how you shave.
  • If it works for your schedule, shave in the evening. Shaving can sometimes make the skin feel taut. So shave in the evening to soothe your skin during the night.
  • Shave when you’re on your game. Not when you’re half-asleep or in a big rush.

Step 2: Exfoliate excellently

  • Exfoliation is extra-important. It gets rid of dead skin cells, softens skin, and helps to release ingrown hairs.
  • You might want to steer clear of coarse body scrubs. Try a gentle scrub with fruit stone extracts.
  • When you shave after exfoliating, the razor will glide across your skin more smoothly. Plus, the results will last longer!

Step 3: Sensitive Don’ts

  • Don’t put on deodorant or antiperspirant immediately after shaving. That can cause irritation.
  • Careful with hair removal (depilatory) creams: The chemicals can cause irritation on sensitive skin.
