A comparative analysis on shaving versus waxes and creams was also conducted. It emerged that shaving was seen as the most preferred amongst all, with 62 per cent dermatologists recommending it number one in terms of safety.

The survey further clarifies misconceptions and myths on shaving wherein amongst 225 dermatologists, 90 percent in Delhi, 70 percent in Bengaluru and more than 60 per cent in Mumbai share the belief that shaving does not lead to thicker hair growth.

It tackles another common misconception of skin darkening. More than 60 percent dermatologists advocated that shaving does not lead to darkened skin.

Rashmi Shetty, an aesthetic physician and a renowned dermatologist, said: "With the increase in variety of hair removal methods available today, Indian women have become more cautious in making choices, especially when it comes to taking care of their skin.

"They are now interested in understanding the science behind the product before buying it. It is, therefore, pertinent that they are guided with the right information by spreading proper education and eliminating reservations. This way, they can make an informed decision and choose the right method of hair removal, that suits their needs."
