Groom to perfection with the basics of body grooming.

Body grooming is no longer limited to the fairer sex. Nowadays even men are trying to keep the tufts of hair all over their body under control. Here are some tips to help you make body grooming easier to do

Here is body grooming 101. The basic rules to begin with for better body grooming. Shave against the grain, keeping the skin tense using the other hand to give you a smoother shave and less irritation. Always groom yourself after a shower or in it. If you groom under the shower, use shaving foam and make sure the cutter head of your shaver is wet. Shaving wet is much easier than dry shaving. Also, when you are done, apply lotion to the shaved areas.


1 .First moisturize armpit and remove traces of deodorant
2. Apply shaving cream
3. Shave with upward strokes
4. Flush armpits with cold water
5. Pat your armpits dry with soft towel instead of rubbing them and causing irritation
6. Don't apply products containing alcohol
