Time – Our best friend and worst enemy. We run with it and we run against it. Unfortunately, more often than not, I run against it. As a fashion blogger, there are too many events to attend. As a party lover, there are too many friends I have to hang out with. And because I don’t want to miss out on living every moment, you can often see me scuttling around from here and there and back here. Of course, there are things that I have to take care on the go – do things a tad more quickly than they are supposed to be done. One of these things is body hair.
While I would love to have a pampering session in a nice parlor (or have one come home) for a massage and a mandatory waxing session, it is not always possible. So I resort to quicker methods. These days I shave the body hair and honestly, it took me a lot of convincing myself to do it. One hears a lot of side effects of shaving. Thicker hair, multiplication in growth, unwanted cuts are the top three ones. Why would I want thicker hair? I am not exactly in love with the existing body hair anyway! And unwanted cuts – blood, hurt, band-aids– no!
Turns out, I was pretty wrong. Once I started shaving, I realized it is quick and convenient and effective. I can speak from personal experience – I, for one, did not have thicker or coarser hair growing back. The growth rate was also same – it did not increase (or decrease). And for the record, I have never cut myself while shaving. If you get paranoid about shaving, remember to not press the razor very hard against your skin – It is not meant for that. If you use a light hand and correct products, there is nothing to worry about. Also, whatever happens – do NOT dry shave. No! Nada! Never do that!
I started my “shaving experiment” with Gillette even before I saw its marketing and ads on TV and print. In fact, my first razor survived for more than a year! The first time I used it, I had used (and still use) a conditioner for shaving and dab a little olive oil after I am done with it. This time, however, I had the whole Gilette Shaving kit!
Since I have recieved the Gillette Venus All in One pack, I shall take their #SubscribeToSmooth challenge and keep posting the updates on how the product is and how my skin feels after the shave and many other minor details.
