The Search For The Perfect Razor
In order to avoid being cut all the time with the wrong razor when shaving, it is important to choose the best one. Wrong razors have also lead to many deaths. Here are some key factors to consider when purchasing a razor.
You must moisturize when shaving. It is a good idea to use a self-lubricating razor or a shaving cream to help make your hair and skin soft. This would make it easier to shave the unwanted hair using the razor. Lubrication reduces the risk of irritation or burns from the contact between your skin and the blade. Shaving without moisturization or lubrication would also result to a dry skin and vulnerable to scratches, which is not what you want to happen
Lubrication strips are the trend nowadays. These lubrication strips would break down as it gets into contact with your skin and moisturizes it in the process. They provide even moisturization of the skin without missing a single spot. However, with shaving creams, there may be some spots that are left unmoisturized or that some spots may be more moisturized than the other. Whichever you choose, make sure that they have useful additives such as Vitamin E, cocoa butter, and other essential vitamins which will help you achieve not only that perfect look but also a healthier one.
Be sure to be meticulous in choosing the design of the razor. Each razor is designed differently in terms of curves, handle weight, flexibility, design, the gender of the user, and other technical differences. Also, with each different types come different prices.
Make sure that the razor would be able to provide you of your needs. You are free to use even a razor for the opposite gender if it is what helps you achieve a perfectly shaved look.
The number of blades must also be considered. A razor with numerous blades would help you shave faster. However, they are much pricier since they give you the closest and smoothest shave with each stroke,
Do not reuse old blades since they may have bacteria that causes razor burns. Replace those old blades with a new one.
Avoid using the same razor for all of your body parts. You will be dealing with nicks and cuts when you use the same razor for your contoured legs and flat face so stop doing that. The life of a razor is only limited. A razor that has a head that moves is more ideal for a curved body part. Moreover, an ergonomic handle would give you a stronger grip on the razor.
Selecting the right razor is a tedious process of trial and error. Test out different types of razor. Keep at it on the search and someday you will find that perfect razor for sure.
