How to Get the Perfect Shave
Most of us have no time to think of the details of the shaving kits we go for. This is why it becomes hard to pinpoint the craze of all the skin irritation we tend to suffer as a result of shaving. In case you need to keep healthy skin and prevent such irritation, you need to know more about the shaving kits you go for. Not all razors are the same. You will notice certain differences between safety razors and multi-blade cartridge razors. These differences should make it clear which is the better option for you.
Cartridge razors shall be made of plastic, which leaves then light in weight. This shall need you to apply lots of pressure to get them to work. They normally come with several blades arranged at an angle. You will thus find yourself pulling and tugging at a longer stubble. You cannot realistically expect the shave to be a clean and close one.
They normally come with so many blades, to allow for a clean and close shave in one stroke. But the resultant confusion leaves the blades dragging on your skin, thus tearing it. When you then consider the pressure due to the lightweight, you can see how you will injure yourself with it. The blades also make it easier for bacteria to grow in there.
Safety razors come with one blade for the shave. They will also be heavy due to the fact that they are built using metal, such as stainless steel. This means you only need to use a little pressure to get it to shave. This makes for a more comfortable and less irritation having experience. The stainless steel shall also last much longer and remain in one piece more than plastic ever could. The fact that it comes with a single blade means there shall be no buildup of bacteria. You also get to replace that single blade, which makes it even more hygienic. The fact that the blade is single means it shall move with less restriction and drag, thus shaving the stubble with less irritation.
Some people might opt to go for the cartridge shaving kits since they do not cost as much as the safety razors. You will have to keep buying cartridge razor more frequently than you would a safety razor. The only recurring cost with safety razors is the cheap pack of blades. After a while, you will have spent way more on the cartridge shavers than you ever would with the safety razors.
There is a bit of a learning curve in using safety razors. But once you do, shaving shall be such a therapeutic an enjoyable time for you.
