According to an article in the Mirror there's a right time of day to shave your legs, and you're probably doing it all wrong. First we don't know our bra sizes, now we can't even shave right. Come on, gals. Let's get it together already.

It turns out shaving at night before bed will give you the smoothest results. The science behind it works like this: as you sleep your skin swells slightly, so if you wait until morning to shave your legs, it's harder to get a close shave. Also, your body temperature rises under the hot water, and then cools off when you get out. This is a problem because the skin and pores of your legs tightens up as it cools off, making your leg hair look and feel pricklier during the day. YEAH, YOU G-D CACTUS!
