The Truth about Shaving
Truth: No way. Hair regrowth is determined by what’s on the inside—your genetics and hormones. So why does this myth keep popping up? As hair grows back, the blunt ends make it seem thicker. Most hair grows about a quarter-inch per month and is a sign that your body is healthy and doing just what it’s supposed to do.
Truth: On the contrary! Shaving helps skin look and feel smooth by whisking away your top layer of dead skin. But remember to use a shaving gel and a moisturizing lotion after you shave to keep skin feeling (and looking) its best.
Truth: Actually, it’s the opposite! Shaving with an old, dull blade can cause more nicks and cuts. Because a new blade is sharper, it’s safer. Use a light touch—you really just need to skim over skin—and choose a good razor, like the Venus Embrace razor , to help prevent any unwanted “ouch!” moments.
Truth: Actually, the technology behind Gillette men’s and women’s razors is the same, but Venus razors are designed just for women (and girls). Venus razor blades individually adjust to hug your natural curves. They also feature a specially designed handle for a great grip to keep it from slipping out of your hand.
Truth: When it comes to hair removal, you’ve got lots of options. But wet shaving is a quick and easy way to help skin stay soft and beautiful. Plus it’s inexpensive and convenient; you never even have to leave the comfort of your own home.
7 Easy Hair Removal Ideas for Women
Wet shaving uses a set of blades to glide over wet skin and lathered shave gel to remove unwanted hair.2. Dry Shaving:
Electric (or dry) shaving uses a fine screen that traps hair and cuts it off with a moving blade underneath.
3. Depilatory Creams:
Depilatory creams, lotions, roll-ons and foams all use a chemical compound to dissolve the hair at the surface of the skin.
Waxing can be done hot or cold. The wax gets applied to your skin and then is quickly stripped away in the opposite direction, pulling the hair out with it.
Epilators look a lot like electric shavers. The head of the epilator is placed on the skin and rotating disks remove hair at the root.
Laser hair removal uses a laser to pass a pulsating beam of light through the skin to your hair follicles.
Electrolysis uses a very fine needle that gets inserted into the hair follicle and destroys regenerative cells with a mild electrical current.
Essential Women Shaving Tips
We recommend starting with a Venus Embrace refillable razor. It has 5 blades for an ultra-close shave and long-lasting smoothness. Plus there’s a Ribbon of Moisture for a smooth glide to help minimize any nicks and cuts. But feel free to try any Venus razor, like Venus Breeze with built-in shave gel bars—no need for shave gel! The great thing is that all Venus refillable razors have a reusable handle and interchangeable cartridges, so you can try out different types of Venus razor blades without buying a whole new razor—great for the shaver who’s conscious of her environment.
Venus disposable razors come in multi-razor packs where the handle and razor blade are permanently attached, so you just use and toss the whole razor when you are done. They are convenient for a girl on the go or as a second razor for your gym bag and can still give you an amazing shave. They also come in plenty of fun colors so you can express yourself! So it’s easy to keep your legs looking (and feeling) great, no matter where you are.
The Correct Way to Shave – Body Shaving Tips for Women
Step 2: Lather up with a protective shave gel like Satin Care Sensitive Skin shave gel. Shave gel helps keep water in the hair and makes sure that the razor glides easily over your skin, protecting you from potential nicks and cuts. Plus, it helps you keep track of where you’ve shaved to avoid missing any spots.
Step 3: Start shaving with the help of your razor.
Tip: Always use a light touch, don’t press down, and shave legs from the ankles up. For your underarms, shave from all angles—up, down and sideways. And for the bikini area, shave in the direction of hair growth first (inward) and against for an extra-close shave. (When you’re ready to start shaving your bikini area, first watch the Dare to Bare video and learn how to do it.)
Step 4: After shaving, moisturize. This step is very important as moisturization helps to keep your skin hydrated, not to mention glowing.
After each shave, simply rinse and air-dry your razor to help prevent it from becoming clogged. Sharing a razor’s not recommended, but it’s OK if you ask your mom or sister if you can try out hers. Once you decide that shaving is right for you, it’s best (and more fun) to buy your own Venus razor.
