Technology make life easier for everyone, but when it comes to shaving, there is an exception.
Every year, the razors companies are rolling out new features with the 4,5,6 blade razors, lubricating strip, new handle in different colors and more recently, razors with a vibrating head. I wouldn’t be surprised if they come out with a 20 blade razor!
While these features are cool, it does your skin and wallet no good for a few reasons.
That is why we urge you to switch from the disposable or multi-blade razors to a safety razor in our eBook. By the way, if you haven’t signed up for the eBook yet, click the link below. You will also get a 50% off coupon.
There are many reasons to consider making the switch. I know it may be hard for you cause you are loyal to those pivoting head razor with the 12 blades, but here is something you probably don’t know.
The multi-blade cartridge is not good for your skin. According to an article in Esquire magazine,
Cartridges take off extra skin that can cause a lot of irritation for guys with sensitive skin. The safety razor takes off the exact amount you need,” Chris Ramos, a barber at Baxter Finley Barber & Shop in L.A. says. And come winter, you’ll need those extra layers to protect you when frosty winds are licking the moisture off your face.
Another downside to the cartridge razors is that the blades go dull quickly and accumulate bacteria and if you don’t change it often, you are exposing yourself to razor burns and other after shave skin damage. Lastly, the cartridge blades are pretty damn expensive (you probably know this).
When it comes to shaving, old fashion is better than new and flashy. The classic safety razor has been around for over a century and it delivers the cleanest shave with only one blade because it is sharper. The replacement blades are cheap too. You can buy a pack of 100 blades for $10 on Amazon and it will last a whole year.
I had this little spot of ingrown hair and razor bump on my neck that finally disappeared after making the switch. I wish I started using the safety razor sooner!
We won’t go into details about shaving with a safety razor because there are a lot of free videos and articles on the web to show you how to shave with a safety razor. Here are just a few great video tutorials and articles.
