The Secret To A Smooth Shave

Komal Basith

I’m getting really tired of dealing with ingrown hair after I shave, but I can’t stand the pain of waxing either. I’ve yet to gather the nerve to consider laser so in the meanwhile, is there anything I can do to make my shave slightly more comfortable?

For sure. You probably already know by now that I’m a huge fan of making my beauty products multitask and that’s how I discovered that when your skin gets irritated and bumpy from shaving, the best way to fix this is to use hair conditioner instead of shaving gel. So the next time you’re in the shower skip the shaving gel entirely and shave with your favourite conditioner instead; I promise it’ll give you both the smoothest legs ever and no ingrown hair at all.

The only drawback to this is that conditioner clogs razors blades up quite easily, so you’ll have to rinse more often than you’re used to, and possibly also replace the blade sooner than normal. Although considering the fact that you won’t have to worry about ingrowns anymore, maybe this isn’t such a bad tradeoff.


My lips are starting to get really chapped, and I’ve tried everything – lip balm, coconut oil, even rubbing cocoa butter on, but nothing works. They’re still dry, chapping and really annoying. Please help!

I’ve actually answered a similar question on the weekly beauty roundup before, but I thought this might be a good opportunity to remind you of the astounding wonder that is Elizabeth Arden’s Eight Hour Cream. Honestlly, this is such a wonder balm, in that it is both wonderful and works wonders on any parts of your body that are super dry – especially your lips.

You might say you’ve tried everything before, but have you tried the 8 Hour Cream? If not, I recommend you get yourself some stat (also, winter is coming, and this is a good way to prepare yourself in lieu of whatever it is Ned Stark recommends). Once you have it, rub that junk into your lips like your life depended on it; really get in there. Go to bed. Wake up to softer lips, and repeat unto eternity / your bottle runs out – which is practically the same thing.

That’s all folks; have a lovely weekend! To kick things off, here’s a hilarious parody of Sam Smith’s Stay With Me by none other than Damien from Mean Girls. Enjoy!
