And if we no longer stand behind every step of care we can still show them the good habits that we need to take today and who will serve them for life.
For my boy boy
This is one of the rituals of adulthood, a special moment in every person's life: the first shave can be performed as soon as your teenager feels the need, when he feels, may be less comfortable, for example, with his boy's mustache.

Show him from the very beginning the best way to avoid cutting yourself, adjusting to the direction of hair and shaving at the end of the shower. In addition, get a shave razor and shaving gel that you checked and approved yourself.

Try as much as you can not judge too quickly and direct it, showing it some tricks and buying good and quality products with it: a foundation suitable for her face, no irritating carcasses, etc. Makeup is not really your hobby?
