DIY Friday is a weekly post that shares my most recent contribution to diyNatural, an awesome blog designed to help you live naturally and create a sustainable lifestyle.
Once upon a time, shaving my legs involved a plethora of products: a special shaving cream for sensitive skin, a good disposable razor, with at least three blades and immediate application of a special lotion for sensitive skin to ward off the inevitable razor burn. If I skipped any of those items, the skin on my legs would be miserable.
It was a costly habit (for us and the planet).
Thankfully, we’ve figured out some ways to save money on shaving products (here are other ways we‘ve saved money). The benefit? Less waste, less toxins (found not just in the plastics of the commercial items, but in the products themselves), smoother skin and a much better shave.
So if you still want to/have to shave and want to make your routine much more eco-friendly, here are some DIY tips you can try out at home.
How have you greened you shaving routine?
