I’ve successfully completed my 4 weeks of Gillette Venus Subscribe to Smooth Challenge and I must let you know that I loved the whole experience! I always had thought shaving was dangerous to my skin and the challenge really helped me to get out of the old myth. I’m glad that I’m a converted customer of their product. Today, I’ll be sharing with you 5 steps to shave your skin the proper way – the steps I actually follow!
I’d also be listing out few important benefits of choosing ‘shaving’ as your hair removal method.
1. Choose your razor : Make sure it is sharp, clean and mess free. I use the Gillette Venus Razor that comes with an useful strip indicator. Always choose one that is meant for women since it is more milder and safer on your skin.
2. Wet your skin : I usually shave my skin during my shower so I don’t need to follow this step specifically. However, if you are getting it done without getting into your shower, use a spray bottle or a soft damp cloth to make your skin wet. This makes the process easy and simple.
3. Put on your shaving cream : I use the Gillette Shaving Cream meant for sensitive skin and it works fine with me. I gently apply the cream all over my legs and arms and let it soak for a minute or two. This way, it softens the area and makes the razor glide with ease.
4. Shave your skin with care : After the shaving creme/gel sets, I shave my skin gently with the razor. Since the razor I use causes zero-damage to the skin, I shave in both directions without troubles. I make sure the razor is wet and dip it in water in between to make sure it is unclogged.
5. Wash your skin : After the whole process is complete, I rinse my skin with cold water to soothe the skin. I sometimes apply a thin coat of any cooling body lotion to help my skin retain its moisture after shaving.
Benefits of Shaving
Shaving procedure may vary from person to person depending on the amount of hair, speed of growth etc. It also matters how often you shave since few people love flaunting minis whereas others rarely do that. For me, I need to get my legs shaved once a week to get the smooth skin. I love wearing skirts and shorts and that is when the Gillette razor helps me. Since it is specially designed for women, it is smooth on my skin and it never alters the nature of my skin or hair growth.
Morever, I can carry the product anywhere with ease which is not applicable with many other hair removal options. Shaving saves a lot of time for me since I can do that in a jiffy before a party and I no longer need to wait to get the process done. The whole kit is afforable too compared to hair removal creams/waxes! I can easily do it at home and mainly, my skin stays safe without damage!
