  1. Talk it through! Let your daughter know you support her and are there to help. It might even help to do a little demo before you start.
  2. Get the right tools. Use a razor like Schick Intuition that is easy to grip and made for female parts and curves to help minimize nicks and cuts.
  3. Never shave dry! You'll either need shaving cream or oil or a better razor. A smart razor like Schick Intuition that has a built-in skin conditioning solid (just add water and shave - no need for shave gel!) for a comfortable and smooth shave. It lathers and shaves in one easy step.
  4. Use a stool or tub edge. As a newbie, it’s nearly impossible to balance and shave at the same time. Have an easy spot to prop the leg up to shave.
  5. Don’t rush! Make sure the first experience is a fun, low-key event. If your daughter is shaving for a big event or trip, don’t wait until the night before.

With a good attitude and the right razor you’ll be ready to take on this right of passage. Get your Schick First Time Razor pack here.
