Shave or Trim? What’s the better choice for sensitive skin
We are going to focus on shaving today due to the fact that it is a pivotal part of daily hygiene. Now many of you guys out there have sensitive skin and are probably coming to question if what you are doing is proper. This includes both shaving your face with a razor, or trimming your beard with either a clipper or electric razor. The issue that men face I found was not if what product they were using was proper, but rather if the actual method itself was.
Needless to say, it doesn’t make much of a difference what method you take! It is all about the products you use instead. Now I have sensitive skin too, not as bad as many others have it but it is not rough and rugged by any means. When I first started using those cheap disposable razors or cheap clippers, I noticed that I was getting razor burns all the time. This happens because sensitive skin is very prone to getting razor burn, ingrown hairs, and shaving bumps.
No one wants that. Well I then talked to my dermatologist, and he suggested something that I never thought of before. He basically told me: “Invest in your skin and buy better products and your skin will thank you for that”. I did not understand it at the time and did not think it would make much of a difference, but what do I know since I am not a doctor.
The Truth Was Revealed: Better Products Equals A Safer Shave
Now continuing with the story just for the sake of finishing it; I rushed home and did some research online to find the best rated men’s beard trimmer because at the time I was rocking the facial hair. I found that Panasonic made a trimmer with hypoallergenic blades then, the ER-GB40-S, so I decided to give it a try as the price wasn’t even that high. I was amazed at the difference that a higher quality product made. It turns out that your doctors really do not whats good for you, right?
So the takeaway from this story is that it doesn’t matter what method you prefer to use in order to get that mustache or beard shaved, it depends on what you are using to get there. By no means am I saying to go out and spend over $100, but rather just don’t go cheap. Going cheap really has many disadvantages and it pays (no pun intended) to spend a little extra and get that better safety razor and shaving cream or that clipper.
In the end, you will see an instant difference from the moment you shave and you will have the epiphany that I also had. Now if you just follow that with a great skin care routine, you will never need to go back to a dermatologist again. The key here is to invest in yourself, grab only the higher quality tools, and just enjoy the beauty of having flawless skin; because many guys out there do not and they don’t even make an attempt to solve it.
