This Is Why You Should Only Shave Your Legs At Night

When do you usually shave your legs? In the morning? After your afternoon workout? Perhaps you shave your legs before you go to bed. Perhaps a better question would be, do you remember the last time you shaved your legs, period?

You may have never considered it before, but there is apparently an optimum time of day to shave your legs to get the best results. According to beauty experts, people should be shaving their legs before bed. This is because, while we sleep, our legs become warm and swell slightly, which means that the hairs you may have missed shaving retreat back into their follicles and become less obvious.

As an added bonus, while your legs are still warm in the morning, they will appear smoother. If you choose to go against the beauty experts and shave your legs in the morning and then go out into the cold air, you will find that your pores and skin will tighten, resulting in legs that feel more prickly.

The more you know, right?
