Common shaving myths
MYTH: Shaving every day causes hair to grow back thicker, darker and faster.
Shaving does not cause hair to grow back thicker, darker or faster. Hair regrowth is determined by what's on the inside—your genetics and hormones. So why the relentless myth? As hair grows back, the blunt ends make it seem thicker. Another possible reason—underarm hair grows about 50% faster than hair on your legs, so it's naturally growing faster with or without shaving.
MYTH: A new razor blade causes cuts than a broken-in razor blade.
Nope, definitely not. Shaving with an old, dull razor blade actually results in even more cuts, and can cause infection. You want to change your razor blade regulary, even if you havent been using it. No matter how well you dry and look after your razor, it can still develop rust which can cause infections.
MYTH: Pressing hard will give a closer shave
Not so! Putting too much pressure on your razor can cause cuts. We recommend one of our amazing brands Venus Gillette, to do the work for you. Keep the blades flat against your skin so the razor can do its job. Use a light touch to get a relaxing and close shave.
MYTH: Shaving over the same area repeatedly will give me a closer shave.
No way! Shaving one spot over and over will irritate skin—fast. If you’re having trouble with rough spots or stubble, it may be time to change your blade.
MYTH: Shaving will make my tan fade faster.
You simply can’t shave off your tan. Actually, regular shaving can enhance your tan by sweeping away the top layer of flaky skim that hides your gorgeous glow.
MYTH: You should only shave to just above the knee.
This is a personal choice. Think about what feels right for you and your beauty routine.
MYTH: It’s okay to borrow my date’s razor.
Ermmm... One, it's not hygienic. Two, you've got more area to cover, so don't wear out your welcome by wearing out his blade. Three, a women's razor is designed specifically for your curves.
