The Balancing Act

Savvy Shaving Talk

When is the "right" time for our daughters to start the rite of passage of shaving?

Summer is just around the corner, and those sleeveless sundresses and new shorts are just waiting to be worn! And if you have a teenage daughter, it may be the ideal time for her to ask “Can I start shaving my legs?”

As a mom, you may wonder if your daughter is ready to shave and when exactly is it ok to start? Like wearing make-up and dating, it’s a rite of passage that’s bound to happen, so why not be prepared for that inevitable “razor talk?”

Here are some quick tips you can share in your conversation with your daughter:

  • Shaving with slow and careful strokes will ensure a better experience
  • Shave legs with strokes starting at ankle (paying attention around knees), and shave underarm hair up or down (hairs can grow in different directions)
  • Shave towards the end of a shower when hair is softer, making it easier to shave – and to minimize nicks and cuts and increase blade longevity.

Choosing the right razor is so important! BIC® Soleil® Savvy® is an innovative razor that is great for new shavers because it:

  • Features three individually adjusting flexible blades for a flawlessly smooth shave.
  • Has a pivoting head to easily glide over the contours of your body.
  • Has lubricating strips with Vitamin E to pamper your skin.
  • Gives you confidence and control with its rubber grip.

BIC® Soleil® Savvy® combines the convenience of replaceable cartridges with the affordable price point of a premium disposable.

Replaceable heads. Disposable handle. Great value!

Can you and your daughter answer these questions?

Is shaving at night good for your skin?
YES! Shaving removes dead skin cells, and while this is healthy for your skin, it reduces your skin’s defenses for a couple of hours. Shaving at night will give your skin the entire night to recover its strength and suppleness.

Does clean skin help prevent bumps?
Yes! Clean skin will help prevent infection or bumps. Hot water actually diminishes hair toughness, which can increase blade longevity… and wet hair is easier to shave.

Why do I need to lubricate my skin before shaving?
Lubrication prepares the skin for a smoother shave. Pairing a shave prep with a razor featuring a lubricating strip with ingredients like vitamin E will help improve your shaving experience.
