Now let’s talk about shaving. Shaving is always available whenever you need it. It is easy to buy a shaver in any supermarket or convenience store. It is very cheap and it is also disposable. It is very convenient as you may use that anytime you need to get rid of your hair. Plus, you don’t need to book an appointment to shave, all you need is a razor to shave in the shower.
However, there are more cons than pros on shaving. While I was writing this blog, I have come to the conclusion that shaving is really bad for our skin and the usage of shaving needs to be minimized.
HERE ARE SOME OF THE DISADVANTAGES OF SHAVING:
SHAVING MAKES YOUR HAIR LOOK THICKER AND GROW FASTER
Shaving only cuts the hair on our skin area and the hair is not taken off from its roots, therefore the hair will grow much faster and looks thicker compare to waxing. Everyone has different types of hair and it depends on your genetics too. Normally for most people, the hair will start to grow after a day or two after shaving, which is not very helpful as you will need to keep shaving every day.
ROUGH SKIN AFTER SHAVING
After shaving, your skin will feel rough and not very smooth as you only shave your hair off from the surface and not from its roots.
SHAVING CAN CAUSE ITCHINESS AND RASHES
Shaving can cause itchiness and rashes on your skin. The reason behind this is that if you use the wrong shaver or if not used properly, it can cause some complications. This happens when you press the razor too hard onto your skin while shaving or using a very blunt and old razor blade.
POSSIBLE BLEEDING AND WOUNDS WHILE SHAVING
Shaving can cause bleeding and wounds too. Why is that? First of all, you are doing it alone and you can’t really see the area where you are shaving, the intimate area in particular. Careless shaving could result in bleeding and wounding your skin and trust me it is not a good thing wounding your skin with a piece of sharp blade razor.
