It’s a Smooth Sail with Gillette Venus for Kriti Sanon
Renowned aesthetic physician Dr. Rashmi Shetty and makeup artist Namrata Soni bust myths around shaving and vouch for it being the best female hair removal method
Delhi, Gillette Venus organised an interactive a panel discussion with Kriti Sanon along with renowned aesthetic physician Dr. Rashmi Shetty and make-up artist Namrata Soni to educate and bust myths around shaving. They shared their expertise and enlightened women on the techniques of shaving and vouched for shaving being one of the most hassle free and painless methods of female hair removal.
Speaking about Gillette Venus, Kriti Sanon said, “Basis my personal experience, I can confidently say that the Gillette Venus products are skin friendly and are perfectly designed to suit every women’s needs. I thoroughly believe that shaving is the best way of hair removal as it’s the most convenient and hassle free of all the methods. Women simply need to know the right technique of shaving to get the best results.”
Highlighting the various benefits of shaving both Dr. Rashmi Shetty and Namrata Soni spoke about how it is the most effective method for hair removal. Sharing her knowledge, Dr. Rashmi Shetty said, “I am pleased to be part of this educative session, where I can interact with the audience and break the age old myths around shaving for women. Many of whom I have interacted with believe that shaving will make their skin become darker or that their hair would grow faster and thicker which is why they refrain from it. However, in reality hair growth is determined by one’s genetic and hormonal makeup. I am confident that from platforms like these we will be able to bust such myths and impart knowledge about how shaving doesn’t cause any harm to the skin.”
Commenting on the session, Namrata Soni said, “Contrary to the belief, shaving is actually one of the widely recommended method of hair removal for women. It helps in maintaining the health of the skin by keeping it soft, smooth and in exfoliating the skin, as well. As a matter of fact, shaving must become a part of every woman’s regular beauty regime. Gillette Venus razors not only give the ease and convenience of shaving, but also is the safest method of hair removal”.
The session witnessed some interesting conversations between the audience and panel members where personal experiences and scientific knowledge was all shared at a common platform. The evening by Gillette Venus not just busted myths about shaving for women, but also enabled them to have the confidence to achieve smooth skin throughout the year.
Dos and Don’ts of Shaving
Do stretch and shave – The underarm skin and behind your knees is supple and flexible to allow movement at these jointed areas, which can make it harder to shave as the skin moves with the razor. To keep these areas as taut as possible for a cleaner shave, stretch your arm up and reach your hand behind your shoulder, and pull your leg straight.
Don’t soak in the bath for too long before shaving – The skin will over-hydrate and swell slightly as it begins to absorb water. This will compromise the smoothness of the shave. The optimum time for a pre- shave soak is approximately one to two minutes
Don’t apply too much pressure on your razor – A precision made female razor like Gillette Venus is designed to glide with minimum effort over the skin’s surface. Forcing the razor can end up leaving you with nicks.
Don’t worry about direction – Modern razors are so effective that you can shave in any direction that feel comfortable to you. However the hairs on our underarm area grow in random directions so for a truly clean shaven feeling you need to work in a variety of directions also.
Do leave fiddly bits until last – Ankles, back of knees and thighs are best dealt with as you get into the flow of a shave and are most in control of the razor.
Do store your razor correctly – Store your razor in an upright position and somewhere dry. Do not leave it on the bath side in pools of water as this is a breeding ground for bacteria.
Don’t rub your razor to try to clean it with brushes or towels simple rinsing should do the job – You could blunt the blade and damage the coatings – these blades are incredibly fine and you need that coating.
