Subscribe To Smooth With Gillette Venus
There has always been a strong taboo around shaving among women. Some claim it makes the hair rough and pokey, others say it makes your skin darker, to break all our myths Gillette Venus – India’s leading brand in the women shaving category – held a special bloggers/press meet, where experts like Namrata Soni (a renowned make up artist for stars), Dr.Rashmi Shetty (A cosmetic physician) and Actress Kirti Sanon (a staunch gillette venus user) told us all about their experience with shaving over the years and how we need to break out of these myths and adopt to this easiest and painless form of hair removal.
Sharing her insights, Dr. Rashmi Shetty said, “I am pleased to be a part of this session, where I was given an opportunity to break the age old myths around shaving for women. Majority of women have apprehensions with regards to shaving. Many of whom I have interacted with believe that shaving will make their skin become darker or that their hair would grow faster and thicker which is why they refrain from it. However, in reality hair growth is determined by one’s genetic and hormonal makeup. I am confident that from platforms like these we will be able to bust such myths and impart knowledge about how shaving is one of the safest methods.”
Commenting on the session, Namrata Soni said, “From time to time, rumors and myths have been discussed around shaving. I was very happy to share my experience as my profession has given me the opportunity to work with various Indian and international models and I have seen that shaving has become a part of their beauty regime. The basic essential to achieve a healthy skin is to use the right kind of products in the right manner. While hair removal is a key part of everybody’s beauty regime, we need to also ensure that we use the method that best suits our skin type. Personally, I believe that shaving is one of the safest and most convenient methods and is suitable for all types of skins”.
Speaking about Gillette Venus, Kriti Sanon said, “I have always followed a strict regime when it comes to taking care of my skin. Just the way I choose my films only after being confident about the script, I also adopt methods in my beauty regime only after being absolutely convinced about its results. Gillette Venus products have always been skin friendly owing to the unique design and distinctive features that perfectly suit a woman’s needs. The best part of shaving is that its hassle free and takes minimal time and enables one to be ready for any occasion at all times”.
One of the biggest myth which got busted for me was that hair regrowth is determined by what’s on the inside—your genetics and hormones not the method of hair removal. As hair grows back, the blunt ends make it seem thicker. So it’s got nothing to do with shaving. Similarly pressing the razor hard on the skin does not give closer shave, all it does is cause nicks and cuts along with some irritation.
Personally, I have always considered shaving as an emergency and temporary solution but all the encouraging talk made me think – why not give shaving a try and make it my permanent form of hair removal ?? So I took up the #SubscribeToSmooth challenge in which I will be using Gillette Venus razor for a month and will be sharing my experience of the same with all you lovely ladies. The first impression of the product is quite good, my skin felt soft and smooth after hair removal and I found it to be easy and safe way of hair removal that too without any excruciating pain. I will soon share a detailed post about the same too.
