We used to only have one or two methods for hair removal yet now there are various hair removal techniques available to us.

After reading this you will want to keep that razor as your secret weapon to clean and smooth skin. Keep reading to find out.

1. New razors make more cuts, not the perfect shave!

It’s more like the duller the razor cause cuts and nicks. When the blade is dull, you will find yourself applying more pressure you need to use to shave, which is how those wet shaving cuts happen. When the blade starts to tug at your skin, it’s a sign that you need to change your razor blades.

2. Shaving will make your hair grow back thicker

This one is the most common claim yet so false. Shaving only trims the hair and in no way prohibits or stimulates its growth. This claim is usually made because as your hair grows out you feel the blunt end which gives that thick feeling. Hair regrowth is determined by your genetics and hair cycle yet not caused by your hair removal technique.

3. Shaving over the same area repeatedly will give me a closer shave

The blade only can go so far to remove hair. Shaving over an area multiple times will only irritate your skin and nothing else.

4. It’s okay to shave without water or shaving product if I’m in a hurry

If you want to get razor burn then sure try shaving without any protection! For quick and easy shaves try out REMAY Shave Gel Bars which you can grab on the go and use out of the shower with only a quick dab of water.

5. Shaving every day is bad for the skin

Shaving exfoliates your skin which helps skin look and feel smoother. REMAY Shave Gel Bars help provide a gentle lubricant for your razor to glide over resulting in soft skin.

So how do you make shaving the most effective skin care routine?

Shaving is known to dry out your skin but most of the time that is caused by the creams and gels that are used during the process. The key here is to use a product that moisturizes your skin during and after your shave. This also saves you a few dollars on buying a moisturizer just to keep your skin hydrated after the whole process. So why not try a 2-1 product that also nourishes your skin with vitamins. Shaving gels are usually made of ingredients that do just that.
