Namrata Soni is one of the most prevalent makeup names in India and I was very happy to see her at Gillette Venus Event in Delhi as a skin expert who supports shaving as a safe hair removal method. Apart from shaving, here my Q&A with her to share a few good tips for a gorgeous body!
Q: We debunked many myths and got a lot of tips on shaving. But what would you recommend as a regime for smooth skin (legs and arms are SO important!)?
A: Always remember to moisturize your skin (arms, legs, underarms) before and after shaving. Look for moisturizers hydrators like glycerin, vitamin E, soothing ingredients like aloe vera, calamine lotion and clay helps. Body butters and baby oil are a perfect fit and work wonderfully on the skin post shaving.
For people who have dry skin like me, should use a conditioner on the skin while shaving. (A lot of Pinners add a pinch of conditioner to their lather, says Be For Beauty) . After 20 mins, rinse it off with water and apply an oil or use a lotion with aloe vera.
Q: Would you recommend shaving back and stomach to my readers?
A: Shaving on the back is difficult, as it wouldn’t be possible for you to reach all the places properly. It would be easier if you can take help from someone to ensure shaving properly at the back.
Shaving on the stomach should be done only if you have a lot of hair, otherwise I wouldn’t recommend it. However, if you have started shaving your stomach, please ensure that you are regular with it.
Q: Any makeup tips for fabulous looking legs and arms when going out for an event?
A: For fabulous looking legs, I always like to use a little bit of liquid /powder bronzer mixed with my moisturizer to my legs and hands as it gives a great sheen to the exposed areas of the body.
If you have slight discoloration, mix a little bit of liquid foundation with your moisturizer for a stunning effect. (Be For Beauty uses this tips too, but a lot of whites can get stained if it’s too hot ‘coz makeup tends to smear and melt in the heat)
Finally, bronzing oils are also lovely and as they make the legs look very beautiful.
