How to Choose the Best Double Edge Safety Razor For Your Needs
Description a safety razor is essentially a straight-edge shaving tool with a thin protective membrane positioned between the skin and the cutting edge of the blade. These protective devices first began appearing on professional electric razors in the late 1980s. They were designed to make the straight-edge shaving process safe for men who regularly used electric shavers. Ever since, these devices have continued to gain popularity among men of all ages and body types, and there are now more varieties available than ever before. The first benefit of the double edge safety razor was the reduction in the amount of skill required for successful shaving. Many men who regularly used manual shavers developed the habit of pulling the skin tight with their hands in order to make the shave smooth and comfortable. Electric shavers eliminate this need, as the razors are designed with two narrow strips of metal that run parallel to the blades. The exposed side of the metal is smooth and comfortable to touch, while the guarded side contains a number of safety settings that allow users to determine how much skin should be removed and/or how close to the hair line they want to shave.
The second benefit was reduced burns and injury to the user. As we know, burns are often the result of using the wrong type of razor, whether it is a straight-edge safety razor or double-edged safety razor. A double edge safety razor, as its name suggests, is designed to work in two directions at once. The user can move the razor blade in either direction to cut hair. Some of these straight-edge razors also contain multiple safety settings which allow the user to adjust how far down the blades should be pulled. It's an excellent way to prevent cuts, nicks and burns. Another great feature found in double edge safety razors is the presence of multiple blades. Some people prefer their razors to have four blades; others opt for blades of various length. There are benefits to having longer blades - such as more reach and more control. And, of course, there are drawbacks. Longer blades require frequent cartridge re-manufacturing. If you live in an area where cartridge re-manufacturers are not easily available, you may need to purchase extra cartridges on a regular basis. A third benefit is the absence of a stubby handle. A stubby handle typically gets burned or nicked during a shaving session. The stubby ends up being extremely uncomfortable to hold, plus it can also lead to a painful double edge safety razor burn. To reduce the possibility of a burn, make sure you always use shaving soap when you are using a double edge safety razor. Also, make sure your skin is always properly moisturized.
Fourth, consider purchasing several different shaving supplies. For example, if you regularly shave your upper lip, you may want to invest in a quality lip balm. In addition, the direction that you shave can cause you to develop different shaving problems, such as ingrown hairs or razor burn. If you frequently shave the sides of your face, you should consider purchasing a quality razor blade so that you can eliminate ingrown hairs and prevent razor burn. Finally, make sure you properly use the correct shaving technique. It is often difficult to master the perfect wet and dry shaving technique - especially for beginners. If you regularly develop a badger or beard in the wrong place or are unable to get a close shave, you may want to consider buying a quality badger-tooth razor, a wide-toothed comb, a new electric razor, or even shaving cream specifically designed for use with a beard trimmer. It may be helpful to take a look at a diagram that illustrates the best way to shave your beard. This diagram should clearly show you how to evaluate the hair-to-blade contact to find the proper amount of blade gap. It should also help you identify how different types of blades address different areas of your face. Finally, it should clearly show you how to maximize your facial hair-to-blade contact to prevent ingrown hairs and razor burn.
