My Gillette Venus Experience Week 2
I dread my monthly waxing beauty parlor visit. I remember asking myself all the time, why do we women have to bear so much pain to look pretty and presentable?? I am pretty sure there are many like me, who are looking for an painless hair removal alternative, but the are they safe?? You have loads of questions and doubts floating in your mind.
As you guys know, some days back I decided to give one such option – SHAVING a try and took the Gillette Venus #SubscribeToSmooth challenge.There is so much apprehension about shaving as a method of hair removal so I am here to share my first hand experience and break all your myths.
There are a lot of myths around how shaving leaves your skin dry and also changes the skin color and make it darker. But I completely disagree. If you shave the correct way and take proper care of your skin you will never face any such issues after shaving.Moreover skin color changes depend on genetics and hormones of the person and is no where connected to shaving. I have been using the razor regularly for 2 weeks now without any issues. There is no dryness, no discoloration, infact it feels quite soft and smooth.
Here are some pics of my shaved arms (Sorry for such sad pics,down with such a bad cold)
Shaving definitely is an easy and painless way of hair removal but there are few things you should always keep in mind while shaving
- Never dry shave, always use a shave gel.
- A hair conditioner is a great alternative for shaving gel.
- Always exfoliate your skin before shaving, it prevents ingrown hair in the long run and also gets rid of all the dead skin cells that could clog up your razor, preventing a close shave.
- Do not forget to use a moisturizer after shaving.
Stay tuned for Week 3 updates !!
