Out of shaving cream and needing to get some of that stubble removed from your face (or legs)? Don’t resort to soap, which can be drying and irritating. Grab the olive oil from the pantry and get to work. Use warm to hot water to get your face (or legs) ready and then massage a bit of olive oil onto the area primed to be shaved. Then go to town. Works just as good, if not better, than conventional shaving cream/lotion.
