Four common shaving habits that are bad for your skin
#1. Cold Water Shave
The truth is that shaving with cold water can cause shaving irritation.
Coldwater causes your pores to close up, making the hair more difficult to be removed.
Cold water should only be used at the end of your shave when you’re fully rinsed off.
#2. Dry Shaving
First, shaving when your skin is dry will dull your razor blades fast.
Secondly, you end up shaving more of the oils and debris left on your skin.
#3. Razor Blade System
Recent research shows that 5-6 blades really aren’t necessary for getting a better shave.
Preparing the skin is really where a good shave begins.
A three-blade system is best for men with sensitive skin.
#4. Soap as Shaving Lather
Shaving oil and creams contain ingredients that create a buffer between your skin and the razor blade.
It gives a great slippery surface so that your razor has a better glide and protects your skin from being stripped of its oils.
