#SubscribeToSmooth with Gillette Venus | Week 2 Update | Shaving Myths and Facts

Saturday 26 September 2015

Hey lovelies!

I am back with the Week 2 update of my #SubscribeToSmooth challenge with Gillette Venus.
So its been two weeks since I started using the amazing Gillette Venus razor and so far I have used it twice to shave off the hair from my legs.

In today's post, I will not only be sharing my experience and how my skin feels- post two weeks of starting Shaving, but will also try to bust few myths related to Shaving.

So I usually wait for atleast 15-20 days to shave off the hair but I could see a little growth after 10 days of using Gillette Venus and I had to wear a knee-length dress for a party, which made me go for using the razor for the 2nd time.
This time as well the shaving experience was really smooth and pain-free, and the razor also removed small hairs as my hair growth is quite slow. I didn't experience any ingrown hairs or dry skin post hair removal.

Did my experience break some common Myths related to Shaving? Read on :

  • Shaving regularly causes Hair to grow darker and faster - 
Shaving does not cause hair to grow back thicker, darker or faster. Research shows that hair growth, colour and texture is constant for an individual and depends on genetic factors.

  • Shaving makes skin Dry - 
Shaving hasn't made my skin dry or flaky. Infact, it makes skin feel smooth by exfoliating the top layer of dead skin cells.

  • Pushing hard will give a closer Shave - 

Putting too much pressure on your razor can actually cause nicks and cuts. Use a light touch to get a relaxing, smooth and close shave.

  • There's no need to use a Shaving cream - 
It is advised to use a specialized shaving cream or gel like like Satin Care lubricate to help provide a layer of protection against nicks and cuts keeping skin well hydrated. It also helps you keep track of where you've shaved to help you avoid missing any spots.

  • Shaving over the same area repeatedly will give better results - 

Shaving one spot over and over will irritate skin. If you're having trouble with rough spots or stubble, it may be time to change your blade.
