Myth Vs Fact

The top layer of your skin tends to become dry and flaky because of the accumulation of dead skin cells. These dead skin cells also steal the glow and the natural softness of the skin. Regular shaving would sweep off the top flaky layer, leaving your skin looking gorgeous and feeling great. Use a premium quality shaving gel, as this is more hydrating than an ordinary soap. The shaving gel would lubricate your skin and would protect it against cuts and bruises as well. And when you have shaved, apply a generous amount of body lotion or body butter of your choice for that extra dose of moisturisation.

The important thing to keep in mind is your skin type. If you have sensitive or hyper-sensitive skin type then you can shave a day prior to the main event. Use a sensitive skin friendly razor and shaving gel and minimise the redness. For ones who have normal skin type, you can shave on the day of the event. Shaving would not harm your skin if you use the right shaving tools. In fact it would leave your skin soft and supple.
