Planning to wear short skirts or those pretty dresses makes us all grab our shaving kits to remove all the unwanted hair from our legs or hands. Well, it looks so easy, right? Just apply some shaving cream onto your skin, run the razor up your legs, and wash the hair away. Voilà!Say hello to smooth, soft skin!
But, unfortunately, it isn’t an easy thing to do especially when you’re in a hurry. As much as we know we need to go slow and steady while doing it, we usually end up haphazardly throwing our leg against the sink in our washroom.We head for the soap instead of the shaving cream and we start shaving at our fastest pace. Of course, we’ve done it quickly and given ourselves an extra three minutes to get our winged eyeliner right, but we’ve also given ourselves cuts, razor burns, ingrown hairs, and probably missed some spots too.
The point here is that shaving is something that needs to be done with utmost care. It’s our skin, after all, the most sensitive part of our body. Taking care of our skin is totally our responsibility and if it doesn’t seem like a big deal to you right now, you will see regret neglecting your skin in the long run (trust us).
So, here’s a list of all those shaving mistakes you think you were never making but should stop right now:
1. Using The Wrong Razor
We know that razors are expensive and replacing the blades with every use is another thing to be looked after. And most of us reach out for a guy’s razor in times of emergencies. But, let us tell you that using a guy’s razor is an absolute no-no. Men and women have different kinds of hair, we mean the thickness varies; therefore, even the razors are designed that way. Always make sure you have a stock of razors meant for women at home, they aren’t harsh on our skin.
