Bodybuilders often shave their legs, chest, back, arms and underarms so you can see the definition of their muscles clearly when competing. Waxing is another one of their preferred methods because they're hair-free much longer than shaving.

Hair removal creams, although temporary like shaving, are also slathered on to avoid getting razor burn, nicks or cuts. But beware, hair removal creams can leave a chemical burn that looks much worse than razor burn!

The shaving cream is just as important as the razor used for a great nick and burn free shave. Brave Shave is a special cream made especially men's body shaving that helps soften the hair and relax the hair follicle for a closer, smoother shave (read review).

Shaving oil is a quick step that is applied underneath shaving gel or cream that helps protect skin so you get a more comfortable shave, avoid irritation and razor bumps and moisturize skin. Read more: How To Prevent Razor Bumps.
