Making the Cut
When choosing a razor for everyday use, go for the blade with a pristine finish. But how do you determine whether or not your pick will lead to the best possible result?
There are several things to consider in discovering the perfect shave.
Identify and tackle your personal hygiene.
Target your greatest area of need. This will likely change based on your routine throughout the day and where on the body you plan to shave. Shave only when the surface of the body is clean and remember to moisturize and prepare the face with shaving gel prior to blade contact…
Choosing a razor blade: Safety, Electric, or Disposable
Disposable razors are great for minimal hair growth and minimal shaving. They’re known for being inexpensive with little to no commitment to its use. Toss them after seven uses, once the blade dulls, or at the first sign of rusting. Safety razors have the advantage of disposable blades and a great option for men with sensitive skin. Electric razors are also recommended for shavers with sensitive skin, but much like disposable razors, there’s a chance of leaving behind stubble.
One Blade versus Multiple.
While a single blade may leave behind stubble, unnecessary multiples of blades can lead to skin irritation. A sharp blade is a sharp blade and all razors dull over time. There typically is no reason to shave with more than two or three blades. Keep the razor clean and pat dry to prolong use.
