- razor vs. electric.
Everyone has an opinion, but many use both types of shavers. Razors provide the closest shave because they shear directly off the skin. Electric shavers provide the quickest shave with motorized blades under fine metal grids.
- no cream needed.
Unless you're a shower shaver and buy a wet-dry, always start with a dry face.
Press gently and shave sensitive areas first, as the motor may heat up or slow slightly
the longer it runs.
- smooth move.
An electric shaver should leave skin
without a scratch, but may cause even
the manliest men to become sensitive at first.
It's typical—skin redness or irritation will pass
with regular use AND a high-quality shaver.
- close shave.
For a close, even and longer-lasting shave, look for stainless-steel blades that cut close to the root and rotate individually.
- go easy.
One of the main reasons for going electric is that it's easy. Look for a shaver with a 60+ minute run time for less charging hassle. Also, the ideal shaver should come with a travel-ready storage case, be comfortable to hold, and easy to clean.
