Speaking on the Gillette Venus Panel Discussion, Mr. Karthik Srivatsan, Country Marketing Manager, Gillette India said, “Gillette Venus aims to bring to the market quality products that are designed for women, which make their hair removal experience completely convenient and hassle-free. Through this panel discussion we seek to educate women on hair removal, debunk the myths that exist around shaving and inspire them to choose a safe solution for their beauty regime.”

Speaking about Gillette Venus, Kajal Aggarwal said, “Shaving has always been my preferred method of hair removal not only because it is convenient but it is also skin friendly and safe. I think most women are not educated on the right technique of shaving and hence believe the myths that surround shaving. I’m glad to be a part of this event for an iconic brand like Gillette Venus to encourage women to make informed choices and not be a victim of these myths.”

Sharing her experience from the Gillette Venus Panel Discussion, Aesthetic Physician, Dr. Rashmi Shetty said, “I am pleased to a part of this educative session where I can interact with the audience and break the myths around shaving for women. Contrary to the belief, shaving is actually one of the widely recommended methods of hair removal for women. The belief that shaving leads to darker skin or thicker hair growth is completely false. Hair growth is determined by the genetic and hormonal makeup of a person and has nothing to do with the hair removal method you adopt.”

Commenting on the session, Venus Beauty Expert and Celebrity Make-Up Artist, Namrata Soni said, “Shaving helps in maintaining the health of the skin by keeping it soft and smooth. Many of us are not aware that shaving actually helps exfoliate the skin. As a matter of fact, shaving must become a part of every woman’s regular beauty regime with advanced products like the Gillette Venus razors that not only give the ease and convenience of shaving, but also enhance the experience.”

Dos and Don’ts of Shaving


  • Stretch and shave – The underarm skin and behind your knees is supple and flexible to allow movement at these jointed areas, which can make it harder to shave as the skin moves with the razor. To keep these areas as taut as possible for a cleaner shave, stretch your arm up and reach your hand behind your shoulder, and pull your leg straight
  • Leave fiddly bits until last – Ankles, back of knees and thighs are best dealt with as you get into the flow of a shave and are most in control of the razor
  • Store your razor correctly – Store your razor in an upright position and somewhere dry. Do not leave it on the bath side in pools of water as this is a breeding ground for bacteria


  • Soak in the bath for too long before shaving – The skin will over-hydrate and swell slightly as it begins to absorb water. This will compromise the smoothness of the shave. The optimum time for a pre-shave soak is approximately one to two minutes
  • Apply too much pressure on your razor – A precision made female razor like Gillette Venus is designed to glide with minimum effort over the skin’s surface. Forcing the razor can end up leaving you with nicks
  • Worry about direction – Modern razors are so effective that you can shave in any direction that feels comfortable to you. However the hairs on our underarm area grow in random directions so for a truly clean shaven feeling you need to work in a variety of directions also
  • Rub your razor to try to clean it with brushes or towels simple rinsing should do the job – You could blunt the blade and damage the coatings – these blades are incredibly fine and you need that coating
