12 Shaving MYTHS every you should definitely get out of your head

1. MYTH: Shaving foam isn’t necessary soap and water works just as well.

Shaving foam lubricates to help provide a layer of protection against nicks and cuts keeping skin well hydrated. It also helps you keep track of where you’ve shaved to help you avoid missing any spots.

2. MYTH: Shaving razors can’t be used on the bikini line.
LetsShave’s Women Body Razor comes with no terms or conditions. It can be used anywhere on the body, without any cuts, redness or chemicals. Other methods like hair-removal creams come with a lot of T&C’s due to the fact that they contain harmful chemicals and can cause burns on your skin.

3. MYTH: People with sensitive skin cannot use Body Razors.
You should choose Soft Touch 6 over other methods especially if you have sensitive skin! Other hair removal products contain harmful chemicals which can cause burns on your skin. LetsShave Women Body Razor comes equipped with a special Aloe Vera lubricating strip, which keeps the skin well-nourished post-shaving and innovative round-headed blade surrounded with brush fingers which protects your skin against nicks and cuts.

4. MYTH: Shaving every day causes hair to grow back thicker, darker and faster.
Shaving removes hair from the skin surface, so the texture and quality of hair remain unaffected by it. Our DNA determines the color of our hair and the rate of hair growth, both of which have nothing to do with shaving. You may feel that hair grows back thicker, but it is only because the blunt end post shaving makes it seem that way. Once hair grows back, the tip retains its natural soft touch.

5. MYTH: Shaving makes skin dry and flaky.
The fact is, it actually makes your skin much smoother by exfoliating the top layer of dead cells, every time you shave.

6. MYTH: A new razor blade causes more nicks and cuts than a ‘used or dull’ razor blade.
It is actually the opposite. Blades get dull with time and shaving with an old, dull razor blade actually results in even more nicks and cuts. Other reasons could be putting too much pressure on the razor or using a single-blade razor. With Women Body Razor’s, 6 blades working against one hair, with a highly efficient lubricating strip, Soft Touch 6 leaves no chance of cuts or nicks.

7. MYTH: Pressing hard will give a closer shave.
With Soft Touch 6, you don’t need to add a lot of pressure. Adding too much pressure on your razor might cause nicks and cuts. Use a light touch to get a relaxing, smooth and close shave.

8. MYTH: Shaving every day is bad for the skin.
Absolutely not true! In case you have fast-growing, thick hair, it might actually be more comfortable that you shave every day. Also, shaving with Soft Touch 6 actually helps exfoliate the top layer of dead skin cells, thus making your skin look and feel smoother.

9. MYTH: You should exfoliate after you shave.
Never do that.  Exfoliating right after shaving could irritate your skin and cause redness. To get the best result when you shave, exfoliate before using LetsShave Women Body Razor. Exfoliating brings hair completely out of the follicle, helping strands to get on the same growth cycle. Stems will stay smoother longer, since your razor reaches the tiny hairs that are normally trapped under dead skin. This can further enhance that silky smooth feeling.

10. MYTH: The more often you shave body hair, the thicker it will get.
Regular and repeated shaving actually makes hair grow back finer and thinner over time and LetsShave shaving products do not affect hair thickness at all.

11. MYTH: Hot showers are good for your skin.
Long, hot showers can dry out your skin. Try to take shorter showers with lukewarm or cool water to be kinder to the skin as well as the environment!

12. MYTH: If the weather is cloudy, I don’t need to wear sunscreen.
Ultraviolet rays can cause premature aging and damage the skin, so protecting yourself from UV exposure by wearing sunscreen, even on cloudy days, is essential. Make it part of your daily beauty routine!
