Tips For Back Shaving

Shaving back hair is probably the trickiest part of the shaving ritual. But learning how to shave your back hair doesn’t have to be hard at all.

Shaving your back

Armed with the right tools, like the Gillette Trimmer and Braun products, shaving your underarms is pretty simple. Follow these steps to get great results, every time:

Get an assistant

Get an assistantIt’s not just you who has to learn how to remove back hair; you may want to find yourself an assistant and teach him/her the ins and outs of back hair removal as well. It’s just a fact of life: unless you’re blessed with hyper-dexterity, you simply won’t be able to reach all those spots on your back.

Select your styler comb length

Select a fixed comb length. The right comb length on your body hair trimmer can help you tame full, natural growth that hasn’t been touched by a razor for a while – or ever. The Braun 8-in-1 Styling Kit comes with four comb attachments for you to choose from.


Trim. Trim your back hair. Trimming the hair before shaving can help prevent clogged blades.


Shower. The water will help soften your back hair (which can be wiry) and make it easier for the razor to glide over your skin. The Gillette Trimmer is is waterproof so you can trim in the shower.

Apply shaving gel

Lather Up with a shave gel. A good lather helps to hydrate hairs, enhance razor glide, and protect your skin while you shave your back.

Check your blades

Check for Dull Blades. Blade feeling dull or lubrication strips looking faded? It may be time for you to swap your  blade attachment before you begin.

Shave with light, gentle strokes

Shave with Light, Gentle StrokesShave with light, gentle strokes, rinsing often.  Gillette SkinGuard is a good choice for shaving sensitive skin such as the underarms because of its unique SkinGuard positioned between the blades. It works to minimize tug and pull and cut hair at skin level, designed to stop irritation.

Rinse your blades

Rinse Your Blades Often. Run the blades gently under the tap every few strokes, both the back and front sides of the blades, and then gently shake excess water off. Do not tap your razor against the sink or wipe against a towel; these habits can reduce the life of the razor by affecting the intricate design of the blade components. Rinsing the blades under running water helps to remove built-up shaving gel, hair, and dead skin.

Reapply shaving gel as needed

Re-apply shave gel as Needed. You may find that you need to shave over the same spot in different directions to get a smooth shave. In order to help prevent shaving rash on your chest, ensure that you reapply shave gel before you re-stroke.

Rinse off, towel dry and moisturise

Rinse, Dry, and MoisturiseMoisturising after shaving your back is critical – it helps soothe the skin.
