Still on shaving tips for teen girls, I had a teenager who unknowingly used a hair removing cream to moisturize herself all over, walk into my consulting room.
Of course there was no cause for alarm by the time she was at the clinic, except that her eyebrows were missing. Mistakes do happen.
I’ll share more SHAVING TIPS FOR TEEN GIRLS.
Despite what you might have heard, shaving does not make the hair grow back thicker.
This is a popular myth. Shaving only removes hair at the surface of the skin.
The sharp edge caused by shaving the hair creates the rough stubble you can feel on your legs or armpits.
You will find that unless you have very thick or fast hair growth like mine, you won’t have to shave often when you first start shaving.
As teens get older, hair will start to come in faster and one may have to shave more frequently
For special areas like the bikini area, use discretion in making the right choice.
Preferences vary among girls and women and among cultures. Some trim the bikini area, while others clean shave.
You can buy chemical hair removers (depilatories), which are applied directly to the skin and then wiped off a few minutes later.
These hair removers do work, but some people are allergic to the chemicals.
Always test a small area of skin first before using these, even if you’re using them on your legs or underarms.
Sensitive skin may become irritated with this hair removal option. In that case, you can use electric or manual razors.
Other options for hair removal include waxing, electrolysis, and laser hair removal.
I love teens, I love teens health.
