Shaving is the process of hair removal, by using any kind of bladed and sharp object such as a razor, and it is done to chop or slice down the hair to the same level of the skin. Shaving is a very common practice, followed by men to get rid of their facial hair and by women to get rid of their underarm, hair or hair on the hands and legs. A man is usually addressed to as clean shaven if he has gotten rid of his beard, or shaved his beard off entirely.
Both genders, i.e, men and women at times shave off their abdominal hair, chest hair, underarm hair, and hair on the hands and legs or any kind of other hair on the whole body. Shaving of the head is more common practice among the men. It is most linked or associated with some of the religious practices, they are also shaved for recruitment in the armed forces or some type of competitive sports such as running, swimming or extreme sports which needs no distraction of hair flying in the face.
Many shaving products are available in the market, right from pre shaving, shaving to the aftershaves which protect the skin beneath while shaving and makes the shaving experience less troublesome.
