Here I’m with the 4th week update on my Subscribe to Smooth Challege by Gillette Venus! Ever since I opted for shaving, my skin is really smooth compared to how it was after using hair removal creams. I’m not experiencing any allergies/sensitiveness after I took this challege and I’m glad that I’m a part of it!
Today, I shall be busting out 2 more common myths related to shaving.
Does shaving cause nicks and cuts? : This was one of the reasons why I always stayed away from shaving, next to the ‘thicker hair growth’ myth that I solved in my previous week’s update. I always thought shaving would HURT my skin no matter how careful I be. But this is proved wrong by the Gillete Venus razor. It has a strip indicator and a good quality handle with grip that ensures no-damage to your skin.
I hadn’t hurt my skin even once all this month! It has always been an easy process. Considering how fast I be, it never did hurt/cut my skin once. I shaved my skin on the legs in both directions and everytime, I was left with soft, hairless skin without cuts. But again, you need to extra careful while shaving your DRY skin since it is more prone to cuts. Dry shaving should always be done with extra care whichever razor you use. And it is still a good practice to apply a shave gel and softer the area before you put on the razor blade on it to ensure a safe shaving experience!
Does shaving your skin often causes harm to it? : This is a wide topic to be discussed about. If you shave your skin the wrong way, yes it IS. But it happens with every other skin care/cosmetic product. If you use it in a wrong way, it is going to cause negative results. The same applies with shaving as well. If you follow the instructions and do the process carefully everytime, then it is NOT going to harm your skin in any way though you do it multiple times a week/month! But shaving extremely dry/rough/brusied skin will definitey cause adverse effects. Hence, I recommend a deep nourishing moisturizer at night if you are planning to shave your skin the next day morning.
Don’t get fooled by the myth that it is going to harm your skin. Shaving actually is way better than usage of hair removal creams/strip since they contain too many chemicals that are harmful for your skin! Without shaving, you apply nothing chemical-based on your skin which is really on the safer side.
Overall, my 30 days challenge went really a lot good with the Gillette Venus Razor and the shave gel! I’m going to using this product regularly from now for a long time. It has been a savior, a product that can be used with ease. I shall be doing a final post on this challenge covering benefits of shaving and five important tips that I’d learned over these weeks. Do stay tuned!
