What you do know is, that’s a sensitive area. Using a different razor than the one you use for your body hair, light touch and gentle strokes are the key. Use a lotion (alcohol free) to soothe the area after the shave and you are ready. Flaunt that bikini, girl..

3. Blunt razors will give you cuts

Look out!!  Those cartridges need replacement. The indicator strips fades after about three or four uses, a clear sign that the blades are becoming blunt.

4. Straight strokes are the key

A shorter razor stroke  for tighter areas like knees, while longer strokes will work like a charm on legs and underarms. But remember ladies, keep those strokes straight as an arrow!!

5. Shaving doesn’t cause your hair to grow back thicker

When hairs grow out naturally, they taper at a sharp point, so they look thinner. However, shaving hair cuts it at a blunt angle so hairs look thicker. The bluntness of the re-grown hair may feel coarser and thicker.

6. And yes! Men and women use different razors
