NATURAL ALTERNATIVES TO SHAVING CREAMS

Shaving is one of the quickest hair removal methods. Though it may be quick and easy, it often leads to nicks and cuts and can cause skin peeling and dryness if not done properly. It is important to use a good shaving cream or something that can lubricate the shaving process and also keep skin moisturized. Below are some natural shaving creams you can try-
