Shaving is one of the quickest and painless hair removal method. It might look easy but it is often followed by razor burns, cuts and nicks which is why a shaving foam or shaving gel is required to make the process as smooth as possible and prevent any after-shaving razor burn. If you are in a lookout for a homemade all-natural shaving gel, refer the recipe given below-
Olive oil- Softens skin, acts as a lubricant and prevents nicks and cuts.
