Girls as young as 10 are shaving due, and without learning the right technique their legs are left with cuts and knicks.To help young girls out, Venus dermatologist, Dr. Jody Levine, shared some tips on how parents can help their teen/tweens navigate through shaving and learn some techniques along the way.
1. Start at the right time. Dr. Levine mentioned that it is timing is crucial when you teach your tween/teen to shave. This depends on your child's genetics and social pressures, but many parents can start talking about shaving
2. Make it pretty. Packaging has come a long way where today you can find floral and bright shaving gels and razors like those form Venus. Dr. Levine suggests using appealing varities like the Venus Embrace razor with their vibrant packaging and the Venus Embrace, Satin Care Passionista Fruit shave gel for the ultimate shaving kit.
3. Teach them right. The right technique is everything when learning to shave. Dr. Levine suggests using the Venus Embrace razor with its five spring-mounted blades that provide a close shave as well as its soft grip handle that feels great in the hand and improves control, even when wet. Tweens should start the process by wetting their skin with warm water and not press hard on their skin. They should also use small strokes as they shave.
4. Use shave gel. Shaving gel is really important for a young shaver since it can nourish the skin as well as leave it soft and smooth after shaving. The Venus Embrace, Satin Care Passionista gel can also minimize nicks and cuts and prevent razor bumps.
