There are over 7 billion people on the world today, and a little over half of them are men.
In America 75% of men shave daily, and there is a large number of men who shave more than their face. This makes for almost 80,000,000 men who have to make many decisions related with this common task.
If I tell you that there are 80 million different ways to shave you would think I'm exaggerating at best or that I'm crazy at worst! But the truth is that, even though all men shave in basically the same way, not two do it in the exact same way.
The variety in techniques, products and different types of hair and skin make it so that the combinations are almost infinite, which is great news for us men: Why go through a journey of discovery that could last many years when we can tap into the knowledge of men-kind and find a suitable solution in a fraction of that time?
These are four tricks you need to know for a better shave:
1) Shave after your shower: Whether you are shaving your face, legs or bikini area, the hot water will soften your hair and open the follicles.
2) Slow and steady: A steady hand that moves at the right pace works marvels! By moving at the right pace the blade cuts each hair at the same angle, which could help avoiding razor bumps. By moving in a steady way you avoid cuts and nicks on the skin.
3) Use a shaving oil: Shaving oils are not new but have been in the market for a while. In the past couple of years their use has increased significantly, to the point that now you can find them almost anywhere. Shaving oils add a slippery layer between the blade and your skin that makes the blade glide over your skin, giving you a close shave without harming your skin.
4) Lather: This may be a thing of the past, but shaving brushes are still on the market, and if you have the patience and the time, they could be your best allay on the fight against facial hair! How to use it is very simple: Run the brush under hot water to soften the bristles; apply your favorite shaving cream or gel; work into a lather on the areas of your face you want to shave; shave.
