Swimmer body shaving

The removal of hairs as well as the thin layer of dead skin cells that coat the outer layer of the epidermis to make a swimmer's body more aerodynamic in the water. Full body shaving before a swimming competition can give athletes both a psychological and physical boost to shave a couple seconds off the race.
