1. Does shaving make hair grow back thicker?

This is probably your primary concern about shaving; however, this popular conception of shaving is just a myth! It is only a perception that shaving makes hair thicker. In reality, it does not. Only your genetics and hormones determine the rate and volume of hair growth in your body. As your hair grows back after shaving, the blunt ends make it appear thicker than other hair removal methods where hair is removed from the bud. 

2. How to avoid post-shave irritation?

Having sensitive skin or using too much pressure on your skin through the shaving razor blade might result in post-shave irritation. To avoid shaving bumps, make sure you use a good shaving gel. Also, remember to moisturize your skin with a body moisturizer right after shaving. Moisturization is an essential step in your shaving routine, which will make your skin feel hydrated and prevent any irritation.

3. Should I exfoliate before or after shaving?

According to many experts and dermatologists worldwide, it is best to exfoliate before shaving. Exfoliating your skin with a good body scrub will make sure to remove all the dead cells from your skin and will leave your skin feeling super silky and smooth. Try Femica India’s gentle body scrub for a better shaving experience and to ace the art of shaving.
