Shaving: Hair Removal Myth Busters- Femica
February 3, 2023

Shaving – Myth Busters

Hair removal is very subjective – some women believe that they should learn to love every aspect of their bodies including their body hair while others like to be well groomed for their own satisfaction. There’s no right or wrong when it comes to hair removal – at the end of the day, all that matters is your happiness!

Hair removal can be an extremely painful, expensive and time-consuming process for many women. There are so many options available out there –

  • Waxing (the most common technique in India; a layer of wax is applied on the surface and then a strip is used to pull the hair out – straight from the root. Yes, cringe-worthy)
  • Laser (a laser beam zaps the hair follicles to prevent growth)
  • Electrolysis (which involves the insertion of a needle into the hair follicle and destroying regenerative cells through mild electrical currents – sounds creepy and painful)
  • Hair-removal creams (which are chemical compounds that help dissolve the hair popping out of the follicle – imagine how harsh that would be on the skin!)
  • Epilators (a device that has rotating disks that pull the hair out from the root- almost if not as painful as waxing)

However, there is one more option available that is definitely cheap, painless and extremely convenient at the same time! Yes, we’re talking about the good old Razor.

However, this lifesaver does not get the credit that it deserves because of the various myths that surround it. We’re here to kill those myths and introduce you to a world of convenience! 

Myth: Shaving makes your skin dry and flaky.

Reality: Shaving strips the top layer of your skin off – removing with it all that dead skin. This new layer of exposed skin is much softer and smoother and tender as compared to the top layer – it requires moisturisation. The reason for dry and flaky skin is the lack of moisturisation, not shaving. You can easily avoid this problem by making sure that you use shaving cream (or conditioner, as a quick fix) while shaving and never forget to moisturize after shaving!

Myth: The hair grows back thicker and faster after shaving and is more visible.

Reality: We’ve all heard this one at least once in our lives. Shaving does not hasten hair regrowth – your hair has its own natural pace of growth and this pace is determined by your genes and hormones. The reason why people may think the hair is growing back thicker and is more visible is that when you shave, the hair grows back slightly blunt from the end and this may make it seem thicker. However, only your genes and hormones decide the colour, thickness and pace of your hair growth.

Myth: Men’s razors are more effective than women’s razors

Reality: Many people think that men’s razors do a better job at removing hair than women’s razors – however, this is not true at all. All blades are made to do the same job i.e. to remove hair.

Product Description: Bamboo Razor The ease of a close shave with a premium bamboo handle to ensure a pain free experience. Use it on any external region of your body – arms, legs, underarms and external bikini area. Comes with 10 blades. Premium materials and great ergonomics make this the best choice of razor for women. Smooth Hair Removal The razor is ergonomically designed to give you the smoothest shaving experience with fewer nicks and cuts. Guaranteed to leave your skin feeling super soft. Sustainable The TWC Bamboo Razor is made of natural bamboo. It’s natural, sustainable and eco-friendly. Stainless Steel The metal head is made out of grade 5 stainless steel. The razor is built to last; your razor won’t be going into a landfill anytime soon. The same fate isn’t shared by plastic razors.

 How to Use:Use an organic shaving cream or natural shaving oil to create a loose lather. Apply your selected natural shaving products in gentle strokes and massage into the skin. Wait for one or two minutes to allow them to take effect. Always shave hair using a sharp blade without applying too much pressure.

Benefits / Features of using the product:  

  • Smooth Hair Removal
  • Sustainable
  • Eco-Friendly

Brand Name: The Woman's Company

 

Myth: A sharp, new blade can cause cuts and nicks

Reality: Many women are scared of using new blades as they think the blade might be too sharp and they might cut themselves. However, this is absolutely misunderstood. In fact, the older the blade, the more vulnerable you are to getting cut. This is so because, over time, a blade tends to become blunt and dull. This bluntness can be very deceptive with regard to the amount of pressure that needs to be applied while shaving and can eventually cause more damage.

Don’t let myths stop you from living an easier life! Just keep the following pointers in mind while shaving:

  • always use a sharp blade, ditch the old, blunt one
  • don’t use too much force (just a light touch should be sufficient)
  • never shave without applying shaving cream or conditioner (in order to help the blade glide smoothly)
  • always exfoliate between shaves to ensure that you avoid in-grown hair

Product Description : LetsShave Evior Whipped shaving cream is packed with ingredients like Orange peel, Shea Butter, Argan Oil and Aloe Vera.Women whipped shave cream will nourish and keep your skin moisturised while providing an extra protective layer between your skin and the razor blade to avoid any Nicks and cuts. The Extra rich and creamy lather Spreads evenly and rinses easily to leave skin feeling soft and smooth.

How to use : Take a shower first. Give your skin enough time to hydrate in the shower to avoid irritation. Exfoliate using LetsShave Scrub or Loofah. Apply a thin layer of Shave cream on wet skin. Shave cream retains moisture, helps the razor glide across your skin and avoid re-shaving over an area and causing irritation. Now shave, preferably with fresh Evior 6 blades. Rinse blade often in between shaves. Follow with soothing & calming LetsShave Aftershave balm, as needed.

Benefits of using this product : This whipped shave cream is an aromatic blend of Strawberry and peach that appeals to your senses.
