Lusting after perfect pins? Well, rest assured that silky-smooth legs are absolutely achievable.

And best of all, you don't have to be Gisele to rock the thighly desirable look.

So, who best to offer their insight into the world of de-fuzzing? A man, of course.

Andy Millward from mega-successful beauty blog Pampered Prince offers his top shaving tips.

"I always start a shave with a hot towel," says Millward. "The steam opens the pores and softens the hair making it easier to shave.

"I would also recommend using a pre-shave oil, which will add an extra layer of protection between your skin and the blade.

"There are plenty of products on the market, I like Elemis Smooth Result Shave Oil, but a few drops of your favourite massage oil on damp skin is just as good."

For a close and quick shave, Millward recommends a multi-blade razor

"Something like a Gillette or Wilkinson Sword is great," he says.

"And if you have quite sensitive skin, opt for a wet and dry electric shaver and use it wet."

And if you're thinking of picking up a new shaving gel, forget it, says Millward.

"They often contain drying, skin irritating ingredients. Instead opt for a shaving cream, they are rich emollients and provide more moisture to the skin & protection from the blade," he adds.

As shaving strips the skin of a lot of vital moisture, you'll need to replace it quickly to prevent irritation.

"Opt for a gel based product that contains aloe vera which is soothing and hydrating," Millward advises.

"And make sure you avoid products containing alcohol which can irritate skin further. I love Bluebeards Revenge Post Shave Balm."
