Busting Shaving Myths #SubscribeToSmooth

Hey Y'all

Welcome back to my Blog!

One of the things including in my definition of "Pampering" is Hair Removal
Once in a (long) While, I decide to go Hairless to make myself feel less of a (Lazy) Ape!

Here comes an Option of Either Shaving or Waxing
How many times have we said a big "NO" to shaving just because of the Myths surrounding it?

Today Lets Debunk them!
Recently, I got a chance to Attend "Subscribe to Smooth" Event by Gillette Venus, Joined by Actress Kalki Koechlin, Cosmetologist Dr. Rashmi Shetty and Celebrity Makeup Artist Namrata Soni.

It was an Amazing Event, where these ladies shared their Views on Shaving, Busted Myths around Shaving.

Check out all about the Event Here

So, lets get on to busting some Myths shall we?

Myth 1 : Shaving causes Hair to grow back Thicker than before

Nope, that ain't True ladies!!

Shaving chops away hair on the surface of the Skin leaving the Roots of the hair intact.
So, hair grows back from the chopped part.

Since the hair is continuing to grow from the chopped part, it feels to be thicker.
Because of this, we FEEL hair grows back FASTER and THICKER

where as

On waxing, the hair is Pulled from the Root.
So, it takes longer time for it to grow back and feels finer.

Myth 2 : Shaving causes Dark Armpits

How many of us started shaving using Men's Razor?
Yup, the used and about to be discarded razor we got from our Dad's, Brothers etc?
Using such tools for shaving causes "Razor Burns" and Irritated skin which makes the Skin look dark

When the right Equipment is used, which is designed with proper Technology when it comes to Blades, proper Lubrication for skin etc No Darkness of the Skin happens
So, Right equipment also matters a lot!

            Myth 3 : Shaving without water is Absolutely fine

Hell, No!

There are nicely engineered blades gliding on the Skin, so we need to provide proper lubrication!
Proper Shaving gels are a must to get a Smooth Shave

These gels make sure the much needed hydration is supplied to the skin
Shaving without these gels, or at least water will Irritate the skin and ruin the entire shaving Experience!

Myth 4 : Pressing the Razor on the Skin gives a closer Shave

Pressing the Razor meaning applying the Pressure on the Skin
Pressing a set of blades on the Skin, causes Irritation

An ideal shaving Equipment should be designed in way where no pressure has to be applied to get a Close shave
It should give a close shave without any pressing, irritating the skin
Remember, no pressing.

So, this is it.

I hope I was able to bust the Myths around Shaving for you all, Now we can go back to shaving without a worry in the World!
