Myths Busted: Shaving does not change Skin Color or Texture: Day 15 of My Shaving Experince
I posted about this even which Gillette Venus had on 21st of August and even before that I have been using the Gillette Venus razor. I got my hamper containing not only this Gillette Venus Razor with cartridges, I also got this Gillette Satin care gel with aloe vera.
This is the day 15 that I am continuously using this and will be sharing my experience. I had said many times that this razor is perfectly designed to be used by women and is a safe and easy way to get smooth unwanted hair free skin, but there are some of us who think that shaving regularly changes the skin color, hair texture or hair color in anyway.
MYTH 1: Shaving can Alter Hair Texture
So, really shaving can do all that. The answer is a big No. It’s a Myth that shaving will change the color of your skin or it will darken the skin color. Or shaving can make the hair coarse and thicker or even make the skin patchy.
Shaving can never alter the texture and growth of the hair since this cuts the hair only from above the surface and does nothing else to them. You may feel that the hair is coarser since the top most part is cut. The hair has a tapered shape so when the top upper part is cut you many feel that this makes the hair thicker which it has not beacuse you are just looking at the stub left behind when the hair grows back.
I observed this with in the 15 days I subscribed to the challenge. But the truth is that I have been using this method for so many years. In between, yes, I do get the waxing done but when I am in rush and have no time to go to a salon, then there is nothing as easy as shaving to get rid of the unwanted hair strands. And I know a lot girls out there will agree on this. :)
MYTH 2: Shaving can alter the skin color
The second myth associated with shaving is that this can change the color or darken the skin. Shaving in fact gets rid of the upper most dead skin layer along with the hair stands and a new fresh brighter skin layer is revealed. Our skin can get darker when you just leave the house without using sunscreen, thus no way shaving is to be blamed for that. The new skin layer which gets revealed after the gentle exfoliation by shaving is more likely to get sun damaged and sun tanned regardless of whether you have shaved scrubbed or waxed. As long as you are using sunscreen when you face the sun, shaving can never change your skin color.
So, girls, if you really had those myths and doubts then throw them out of the window. :) and try using this method of hair removal. By the way, it totally depends on which hair removal method you choose but if you were just escaping from shaving due to these Myths, which are myths only, then go ahead and try.
I will also suggest using a foaming or shaving gel that gives a closer shave and helps in making the skin smooth further like this Gillette Satin care that I am using currently. Yow know my brother also used this quietly and I happened to noticed that :D
