Hair Removal Shaving

Shaving is most popular hair removal method among all people and preferred by most dermatologists. It is the fastest, easiest, most painless and its' effect can last for two to three days. Since shaving removes hair on the surface of the skin, it doesn't affect the color or the thickness of the hair. After an area has been shaved, the hair shafts start to emerge from the follicle, so your hair looks and feels coarse and bristly. If you allow the hair to grow out, it will take on its original appearance and texture.

Shaving is best for beard of men and legs of women, and never shaving on the face of female! Shaving facial of women gives the hair a blunt tip, the tip might feel coarse or stubbly for a time as it grows out. During this phase, the hair might be more noticeable and perhaps appear darker or thicker.

Prepare For Shaving


  • Don't share your razors, it can spread skin infections
  • Replace worn parts as necessary.
    Use a sharp blade, dull blades will pull hair, increases risk of ingrown hairs. Using a dull blade may result in you pressing harder during a shaving stroke which can also cause nicks and cuts.

  • If the hair is very long you may want to clip it, with scissors, first.
  • Soak in warm water first for at least three minutes. This is especially important for coarser pubic and armpit hair.

  • Use shaving gel, apply it and let it sit for at least four minutes.
    Do not use soap water. Shave gels tend to be less drying than ordinary soap and water. Shave gels also help hold moisture in the hair and contain lubricants, making hair easier to cut and enabling the razor to glide gently over the skin. Additionally, shave gels won't clog your razor the way soap can.



  • Pull the skin straight and taut with one hand, and shave with the other.
    Do not apply pressure with the razor, if you need to, it means your razor is too dull.

  • Shave in the direction that feels most comfortable.
    However, for the closest, smoothest shave, it is recommended you shave against the direction of hair growth, which means in an upward direction on the legs. Underarm hair grows in different directions, so shaving from all three angles — up, down and sideways — ensures the closest, smoothest shave. For the delicate skin in the bikini area, shave in the direction that feels most comfortable for you.

  • Go slowly. If you go to quickly, you may cut yourself, miss hairs or cause razor burn.
  • A good angle between a disposable razor and the skin is about 30 degrees.
    Electric razors should come with hints; many are best at a 45 degree angle.
  • Rinse the blade often. Hairs on the blade will interfere with shaving.
  • Make sure there's still shaving foam wherever you're shaving.
  • Don't go over an area repeatedly, as this can cause irritation.


Aftercare of Shaving is very important else it can damage your skin causing redness, skin irritation, rashes, bumps and burn.

  • Put an ice cold washcloth for few minutes on the area to avoid burn, redness and bumps.
  • Use skin lotion, Aloe Vera gel or baby oil to reduce irritation and itchiness.
    This will also help in soften the hair follicles and it will reduce the discomfort caused by stubble in between shaves, as well. Don't rub just pat and let it soak itself.
