by 10.4K views 10.4K views  

Gone are the days when women had to make quick salon runs every month (or before any special events, or even a trip). No more having second thoughts before you decide on wearing skirts, shorts, or that hot LBD you’ve just been dying to wear. Now, we just reach for our trusty razors to get the job done.

Waxing, epilating, threading, shaving, tweezing; amongst all these options, shaving is honestly the ultimate winner (if you ask me) because it is painless, cost-effective and the easiest way to remove body hair. The oddly satisfying feeling of a smooth, fresh shave is definitely something I’ve gotten used to. However, as convenient as it may be, it comes with its fair share of myths that makes most think, ‘to shave or not to shave?’. To put all the burning questions and myths around shaving to rest, I did a little digging and jotted down some of the most common misconceptions around using body razors (you can thank me later).

The Most Popular Myths On Body Shaving

  1. Myth: Your hair grows back thicker and faster
  2. Fact:Using body razors does not affect one’s hair growth. It totally depends on your hormones and genes.

  3. Myth: ‘New razors can give you cuts’
  4. Fact: On the contrary, an old razor is more prone to cutting and scraping skin than a new one, and can also result in uneven shaving.

  5. Myth: ‘Say no to razor for the bikini area’
  6. Fact: It depends on your skin’s sensitivity. If you can get a clean shave with a razor, then go for it.

  7. Myth: ‘Press hard on the razor to get best results’
  8. Fact: The pressure has nothing to do with the result. As long as the razor is sharp, a smooth glide with gentle pressure will work.

While a clean shave sounds easy to achieve (even though some of us have been shaving for a while now), finding the right body razor can be a daunting task! The perfect one should ideally glide smoothly over your skin and around every curve without giving you a razor burn. With that in mind, we’ve curated a list of the best body razors in beauty.
