Shaving Tips for Women: Removal of Unwanted Body Hairs

Shaving is a personal choice. It is not necessary for anyone to shave (there’s no medical evidence saying it’s proper or more sanitary). However, many people remove hair from their bodies for comfort, aesthetics, fun, or sexual, cultural, or religious reasons. Hair removal has a long history. It did not (contrary to several rumors I’ve heard floating around) originate in America or with prostitutes.

Women shaving their pubic hair is different than using the razor on legs or underarms. You need a bit more patience and care because of this sensitive zone and thicker hair type. While you might be able to get away with a ‘hurry up and get it done job’ with other areas, but not this one. Here we will show you how to get a close, safe shave while avoiding common problems like nicks and ingrown hairs.

Any kind of shaving tips for women is the last thing on our mind. Shaving is kind of like driving, We just unconsciously get to where we want to go, which in this case, is hopefully clean and smoothly shaved. The following are perfectly good and yet simple shaving tips for women.

The Basics of Female Shaving:

One of the most basic and important shaving tips for women, how to avoid irritation, ingrown hairs and nicks is the liberal use of warm water.  Warm water moistens the skin and allows the hairs to become softer and more pliable, making it much easier to get a closer, cleaner shave.

Shaving naturally exfoliates the skin and if the razor becomes clogged with hair and dead skin, the woman is at a greater risk of cuts, nicks and irritation, so using plenty of warm water and frequent rinsing is of the utmost importance.

Choose Your Shaving Cream Wisely:

For this sensitive body zone be sure to get and use a good shaving cream or gel, using soap is definitely out. The art of shaving, shaving cream for women (compare prices) is phenomenal for getting a smooth shave, moisturizing skin and preventing ingrown hairs.

Choosing a Razor:

In all cases, go for quality, not the best bargain you’ll pay for using cheap razors with razor burn, irritation, soreness and nicks. If you’re going to shave regularly, invest in an electric razor if at all possible. Choose a reputable brand, like Braun or Remington. Except for male facial shaving or shaving your head, get the kind with the blades behind a perforated foil, not the rotary kind with three rotating circles. There are all sorts of doohickeys to choose from, like pop-up trimmers or adjustable heads. Look around and find what’s best for your uses!

If you plan on using it in the shower or bath, make sure they’re made to be used there, waterproofed and so on, so you don’t electrocute yourself. If possible, get one that you can use along with shaving gel/cream/foam. I use a Panasonic Wet/Dry Smooth Operator ladies shaver, and like it a lot. If you go with a conventional razor, again, go for quality. If possible, get the ones with moisturizing strips and “micro fins” or cushions and other doodads. They really do help in terms of extra protection. Replace the disposable blade often.

How to Shave Properly:

The best way to get a close smooth shave and to say goodbye to nicks, cuts, scrapes and razor burn is to start with good quality equipment.  A sharp blade on a razor is the most important thing a woman needs when trying to get the best shave possible.

    * Do not shave dry skin. Wet your skin and let the moisture soften your skin. Shaving is a natural exfoliator and if your skin is dry, your razor will get blocked with dead skin and you are likely to nick yourself as well.
    * Do not waste money by buying creams specially made for women, as they are almost the same as those made for men.
    * To find the perfect razor you will just have to use all those available and choose the one that you like best. You can ask your friends who shave to recommend razors. Look for a razor with lubricated strips, pivoting heads and spring mounted multiple blades.
    * Exfoliate before you shave to ensure that the dead skin cells do not clog your razor and prevent a close shave.
    * For your legs you will have begin shaving from your ankles and then work upwards. For your underarms you will have to shave in every direction as hair grows in every direction under your arm.
    * After you have finished shaving apply oil or moisturizer. The skin on your leg has few oil glands and hence may become dry.
    * When hair curls back under the skin it caused ingrown hairs. To avoid ingrown hairs exfoliate everyday and use a glycolic acid body lotions.
    * If you have a chronic case of ingrown hairs then use a lotion that is specially made for ingrown hairs, that is easily available at the chemists. Apply it in the morning and at night and the bumps will vanish within a few days.
    * If you shave your legs coarse hair will grow back fast. Therefore consider waxing your legs at least.

A Few Advice:

    * Some women have noted genital sensitivity during menstruation. If shaving becomes uncomfortable for women during their periods, they should time pubic shaving around their menstruation cycle.
    * People who are allergic and react to some shaving creams. This area seems to have heightened sensitivity. Furthermore, if it does react, your natural sweat and the natural abrasion this area receives will most likely make your life miserable (temporarily). Use hypoallergenic shaving creams or consider avoiding shaving all together.
    * If shaving does irritate your skin, waxing may not cause as much irritation or in grown hairs.

Shilin Stone Forest, China, Weird Rocks Pointing to the Sky

The Stone Forest of Shilin is located in the Lunan Yu Autonomous County, southeast of Kunming Qujing Prefecture in Yunnan Province, China. This amazing “forest” is said to exist for over 270 million years, from the Paleozoic era. It is a karst landform with unique limestones (sedimentary rocks composed largely from minerals), which were washed by the sea and created groups of gray-black stone peaks and stone pillars. This unique forest has a few unusual characteristics:  it consists of thousand of narrow, pointing to the sky, weirdly-shaped rocks towering up to a height of between 5 and 30 m (15 and 100ft) giving the impression of a very dense forest with old trees.

Ways To Create Memento Wall At Your Home

Ways To Create Memento Wall At Your Home

Mementos serve as happy reminders of loved ones, friends and past events. Instead of storing them away in the attic or basement, surround yourself with memories and create conversation pieces by displaying your mementos in creative ways throughout your home.

If you’ve got a drawer that’s full of photos and other mementos, it’s time to get them out of hiding and up onto the wall so that you can enjoy them on a daily basis. Most people collect photos, souvenirs and other mementos, but rarely do they receive the display space in the home that they truly deserve. By selecting one wall in your home to display these treasures, you can use them as interesting home decor while reliving your memories of past events at the same time. Here are some tips you can use to create a memento wall display area in your own home.

Gather Your Treasures

The first step is gathering a collection of photos and mementos that you would like to display. The number of them will depend on the amount of display space you have. However, you might want to wait to decide which wall in your home to use until you can assess what you have to display. Sometimes the subject matter of your mementos will inspire you to use a specific room, such as the family room if your collection contains primarily vacation mementos and other souvenirs or photos of time spent together as a family.

Don’t be afraid to gather more items than you feel you have room for, since then you’ll have plenty to select from. While you’re at it, gather up any old picture frames that you can find around the house. Shadow box frames work especially well, but any picture frame will do.

Planning The Wall

Once you have your treasures collected, it’s time to start planning how you will display them. Choose a wall in your home and measure it to find out how much display space you have. Cut a large piece of paper the same size as the display area, gluing paper pieces together as necessary. The reverse side of large rolls of wrapping paper can work well. Lay the paper on the floor or on a table. You will use this piece of paper to plan your arrangement, which will make things much easier than trying to imagine what they would look like on the wall. Assess your gathered items to see if they can be grouped into meaningful collections. If so, see if they can be mounted together in a single frame.

You can also add personality to the wall by including other decorative items, such pieces of art which complements your overall theme. For example, a metal tree art piece could accentuate a collection of multi – generational family photos or mementos, as a tribute to your family tree. Move the items around on the paper until you find a pleasing arrangement. Purchase additional shadow boxes or frames if necessary to properly display all your items. You can remove the glass and mat from a standard frame to allow the display of dimensional objects if desired.

Create the Memento Wall

Once you have an arrangement that you like, it’s time to hang everything on the wall. Transfer each item from its place on the paper to the corresponding area on the wall, measuring if necessary to ensure accurate positioning. Use picture hooks and other appropriate wall hardware to hang each item securely. Reposition the lighting within the room so that it properly highlights your new memento wall.

One or more wall mounted candle holders can also be strategically positioned to add interesting light and focus to the wall. When finished, stand back and enjoy your artistic creation.
