Thank you all for your kind words. They really make me enjoy writing this blog every week.
I have decided that because I have been getting a lot of male readers, that I will change up my blog topics every week, so that one week is for females, and the other week is for males. So here are 4 things men might not know about shaving.
1) When men shave there face, they tend to get a terrible rash or breakouts afterwards. To prevent this use a daily moisturizer on your face. It will help to reduce the irritation and dryness of your skin. And if possible, by razors that have moisturizing strips on them to add extra moisturizer to your skin while you shave. You will see that your skin is much softer and smoother after.
2) The Ingrown Hairs. Ingrown hairs form from razor irritation against the skin. Ingrown hair s tend to look just like acne but do not pop them. It can cause more irritation to the skin. especially if the hair is not removed. To prevent ingrown hairs, shave in the direction of the hair growth instead of against it. It will help to not irritate your skin as much. Also, avoid using a dull razor blade. When you use a dull razor blade, it can cause irritation and you are more likely to cut yourself and bleed. It is best to use a new razor blade each time you shave and shave slowly.
3) If you rush through shaving, you are much more likely to miss a spot or two, as well as cut your self. Always double check your face after you are finished, to make sure you do not leave hair behind. Keep a razor in your car if you do, that way you can pick up any missed spots. After you have finished shaving, do not apply products that have a lot of alcohol in them. This can cause more irritation then not properly shaving. Your best bet is to use a little bit of baby powder to soothe the irritation, and before you leave wipe the powder off gently with a damp cloth.
4) Managing your facial hair. If you have problems with your facial hair, like it grows in, in patches, or has weird colors to it, it may be best to just have a clean shaven face. It will be easier for you to maintain, and won’t look weird. If you notice your facial hair starting to become fuller and less patchy, then go for a beard. If you are going to have a beard, mustache, or goatee, before you trim it, apply conditioner to soften the hair, dry it off, then trim the hair. It will make the hair easier to comb through, and result in less pulling.
And men remember to take tweezers your eyebrows. There should be two of them not one. Just remove the hairs from the middle to keep you looking great. Thank you again for all the great comments!
