  2. The Art of Shaving

    Excellent 8 tips for men, Niesha! It’s funny that most men want a shave that doesn’t irritate them, but a majority of the time, we are in such a rush that we disregard all the proper techniques that helps us have a close shave.

    For tip #4, an important factor to remember is how sharp or dull the blade is. A clean, sharp blade can cut hair correctly that the worry for ingrown hair is incredibly minimized, while the opposite is true for when you use a dull blade – passing the blade over your skin a number of times instead of just once. For this, we recommend using a straight edge or a safety razor.
