The Best Time to Shave Your Legs

8 a.m.
Platelets are a critical component of the blood that allow it to clot when you cut yourself. They’re at their stickiest and most abundant early in the morning, says Jennifer Ackerman, author of Sex Sleep Eat Drink Dream: A Day in the Life of Your Body, so any accidental nicks with the razor are less likely to leave you gushing. (Unfortunately, those same qualities make a heart attack more likely at this time, too). So shave carefully, but if you do cut yourself, you won’t have to walk around with a leg full of Band-Aids.
