When should you let your daughter start shaving?

It seems like only yesterday she was scraping her knee climbing a tree, now she's more worried about shaving, right? Take a look at our guide to suss out if she's really ready.

Girls grow up so fast - but it never feels fast enough for them. They're always in such a hurry to get onto the next stage of life, when as parents we'd love for things to stay just as they are.

Take shaving. Most girls will begin to start showing an interest in shaving their legs when they hit puberty. These days, puberty can start as young as eight or nine, but for most girls, it begins any time between the age of 10 and 14.

Puberty causes body hair to become thicker and coarser, and so your daughter may feel more self-conscious and keen to get rid of it - but it's important to make sure she wants to shave for the right reasons.

It might be because her friends are, because she's being teased by bullies or because she's just seen it on TV. Have a chat with her about it and address any peer pressure or body image issues first, so she can work on her confidence and self-esteem before resorting to shaving.

Of course there's no harm in starting shaving early. The main concerns are that she's old enough to handle a razor responsibly and that she's ready to shave regularly once she starts.

If you're convinced that she's got a good reason for wanting to start shaving and that she is safe to use a razor, then it's time to teach her the right technique.

The first step is to help her choose a razor - it's no good trying to borrow the first one she sets eyes on, like Dad's. It won't be designed for the contours of her legs and it could be a painful mistake.

Why not try the Venus & Olay razor? It's got Olay moisture bars built in that create lather as she shaves. So there's no need for a separate shaving gel, which is one less thing to think about when she's getting started.

Once she's got her razor, show her that it only needs a very light touch. Many first-timers think they need to press hard to a close shave, which can cause nicks and cuts.

She'll soon get the hang of it - and you'll see how grown-up she's become.
