Your beauty wish: "NO UNWANTED HAIR!!!!"Beauty wish granted: While we don't exactly have the power to make it so you'll "never have to shave my legs/armpits/nether-regions again" (as one woman put it), we can make the process much less painful. First off, take this quiz to find out the best de-fuzzing method for you. Then, check out our comprehensive hair removal 101 guide that includes hairless tricks from industry experts. Want the CliffsNotes? Here are tips for shaving your legs into silky perfection:
Step 1: To get an extra close shave, exfoliate the day before you pick up that razor. It will remove dead cells that prevent your razor from gliding smoothly over skin. Try Kiehl's Gently Exfoliating Body Scrub, $25.
Step 2: Shave at the end of your shower/bath to allow skin to soak in the moisture from the water and hair to soften.
Step 3: Always use shaving cream; never use razor-clogging soap. Try The Art of Shaving Shaving Cream With Rose Absolute - Pump, $30.
Step 4: Use long strokes and gentle pressure with a sharp razor (replace after five shaves). When you reach your knees, stretch the skin as you shave it to make sure you get every single hair.
Step 5: After you shave, apply lotion chock full of chamomile and calendula to soothe and shea butter for deep moisture such as FC5 by Arbonne Conditioning Body Moisture, $23.
