Life is suddenly easy. There is no more thinking about wearing that little black dress or a sleeveless gown. Sometimes challenges teach you new ways of life. And the Gillette Venus #Subscribetosmooth 30 day challenge is a roller-coaster for me. How I was living under so many myths and how I have wasted so many years of my life in-between waxing sessions and a week’s window for short clothes. Now it’s all sorted. Today is another day to bust another myth!
A lot of girls shy away from shaving because of the myths that come complimentary. But if we tell you that these myths are baseless and shaving does not harm your skin or hair in any way, wouldn’t you give it a try? So here we are, myth busters at work.
It is believed that shaving alters your skin color and hair texture. Body hair grows back thicker and harder when you shave. This is not true. While shaving you are removing hair on the surface of the skin, thus, it does not affect the color, texture or thickness of your hair in any way. In fact regular shaving would remove dead skin cells and dead hair leaving your skin feeling soft and supple.
When you shave the hair feels a little coarse and that’s how you tend to believe that post shaving hair grows to be thick and rough. It is also commonly said that shaving makes hair grow back faster and darker. Ladies, don’t believe these myths. Say a big yes to shaving!
Your hair will grow back in the same color even after shaving, so you need not worry. Since the hair is tiny and more exposed, they appear darker. As the hair grows, the color would look just the same as it was before shaving.
We recommend that you exfoliate the area before shaving. It would help get rid of the nasty and unwanted ingrown hair.

The trick to perfect shaving is to use the right tools. Use a premium quality razor and blade (I would strongly recommend Gillette Venus), and a shaving gel that suits your skin type. Gillette Satin Care for sensitive skin is great. A shaving gel is preferred over soap by many ladies because it is more hydrating that an ordinary soap. Use the razor and blade correctly and enjoy a pain free hair removal shaving experience.
