Hey all lovely people!!! Time for another update. Yes, I am talking about the ’30 Days Subscribe to Smooth’ challenge. After the first update, I was eagerly waiting to share the further progress. Unlike all other assignments with deadlines and updates, this challenge is turning out to be real fun and very useful for me. I, no longer, stress about squeezing an urgent waxing session in my busy schedule. Nor, do I select my daily outfit depending on the hair growth. It is an awesome feeling to know that at least one thing in life is sorted out.
For somebody like me, who was brought up and further fuelled with the notion that ‘shaving is only for men’, it definitely is a surprise to look forward to every shaving session. The concept of ‘5’O clock shadow’ had always prohibited me from using a razor on my skin. I envisioned thicker hair and rough skin texture replacing thin hair and smooth skin on my legs. All in all, I expected a compulsory daily ritual of shaving as men follow. Honestly, even though I dared to take the challenge, I was silently praying for a less damaged skin.
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
Well, guess what!!! Either my prayers are answered or shaving was always a cakewalk. I have been regularly shaving for more than two weeks now and my skin is as good as it always was. In fact, due to the convenience of using the Gilette Venus razor, I am more confident in my own skin. The hassle of patiently waiting for the hair to grow a minimum length for waxing, is a thing of past now. And there is no discoloration or uneven patches on my skin. At least till now, I am able to keep my skin smooth and moisturized post shaving.
Not only there has been no effect on my skin texture, my hair is still as thin as it was. I have not experienced a thicker texture or a darker color at all. Which means, I am not suddenly more hairy. 😉 My routine of shaving every 4th day has helped me in keeping myself always ready to wear clothes of my choice. So girls, I am still winning in this challenge.
Now to the promise I made in the last post. To further add more weight to my experience, I present a visual proof. Summers are becoming more unbearable with every passing day. Thank god for the regular shaving and the beach, I am having my share of fun in the sun. The outfit is very basic, but still has a punch of style with polka-dot shorts and a graphic T-shirt. An ensemble apt for any outdoor activity or indoor pleasure!!!
So, enjoy the pictorial affirmation of my shaving experience. I will be back with another update soon. Till then, do use and connect with the Gilette app.
