To shave or not to shave, that is the question. All over the world men seem to have different opinions on the subject of shaving and we support all of them. In fact, it shouldn’t even be a discussion about whether someone should rock macho hairs on their face or not. It is all about the self-confidence, self-empowerment and the style. And as the Latin saying goes“De gustibus non est disputandum (In matters of taste, there can be no disputes)” we put the discussion to rest.
However, if you are part of the group of men who do like shaving and that clean, sleek look, this article is just for you. Read about the basics of shaving: what equipment you need to shave the right way and how to do it in order to have smooth skin. So, let’s dive in.
Let’s start by stating that all men are different. This being said, we can be sure that all men have different needs and different preferences when it comes to picking the right shaving tool. For example, most men use a razor with a cartridge that has between three and five blades positioned at a fixed angle. These cartridges can be replaced. The razor will get you a close shave and a very neat look. But, on the other hand, it can leave you with a rough, uncomfortable shave and poor skin. And with each next time you use the razor, the blades become duller. This can easily lead to irritation of the skin. Don’t fret though, if you prefer using a razor of this kind, we have the perfect product for you. The Milkman aftershave serum, for example, helps your skin to recover, soothe and moisturize.
Or, you can get a double edge or safety razor instead of the razor with a cartridge. This is a traditional type of razor but is becoming popular again. They are eco-friendly and even though you invest a little bit more in the beginning in comparison to the razor with a cartridge, they pay off in the long run. Their blades are, in fact, cheaper and provide a much more satisfying shaving experience.
Finally, you can go for the straight or cutthroat razor – the one that can be seen in barber shops. It is a classic, old school razor and the most difficult to use. You certainly need to be skilled to use it because you can easily hurt yourself if you aren’t. The professional barbers swear by it, saying that it gives the closest and smoothest results of all.
