Remember when shaving meant that you were finally a man? And now it's just another daily chore, something that shouldn't be missed, something that can't be rushed. You may have been shaving for years & years, but there's more to male facial hair removal than just a shaving cream and a razor.
Some common mistakes men make when shaving include:
It's not so much as we want to shave every day, it's that most of time, we HAVE to shave. Our workplace requires us to look well-groomed. WE like to be well-groomed. Our spouses insist upon it. They are the recipient of our kisses. They are the ones who insist that our sharp whiskers scrap and poke their delicate skin. So we oblige.
For some guys, it's easier to sport a smooth look instead of sporting a well-kept moustache or beard. A lot of guys can't grow a full beard, only a goatee or a flavor-saver under the lower lip. The removal of hair prevents the patchy look and leaves a uniform smooth look.
Every man has areas of skin on his face that may be more sensitive or prone to chafing. Hair removal around eyebrows has be done carefully because this skin has a higher blood supply & if cut, will bleed profusely.
You'll learn quickly where other sensitive skin is on your face, like on the chin or on your cheeks. It's different for all men.
Every guy has different skin type and knowing where your sensitive skin is on your face is important to avoid razor burn and injury.
To avoid abrasion, go slowly and use a generous amount of shaving cream or gel. Rinse thoroughly and splash your face with cold water to close the pores.
The jaw line is another area that needs to be carefully tended to. Because it's a narrow line, the entire pressure on the blades can be applied to this small ridge which can easily be grazed or scraped.
If you think you have it bad, women have it harder when it comes to female facial hair removal. Most women don't like the stubbly-bristly look on their faces, so they have to remove the hair by the root!
Male facial hair removal is a daily chore or ritual for many men. Take good care of your skin and be careful scraping a sharp metal blade against this sensitive skin.
