The Bearded Colonel 2017: Men’s Ultimate Guide to Beard, Razors and Shaving
In this modern world we have today, proper shaving is no longer the art that men used to portray in the past, the average male doesn’t have any clue about the fine art of conventional or traditional wet shaving. Modern men are accustomed using disposable and cheap shaving products that are available in the market today, so the traditional wet shaving seems lost and forgotten. Allow the Bearded Colonel to bring this glorious men’s ritual back to life. What are the benefits of the traditional wet shave? Well, there are tons of benefits men can obtain from traditional and classic wet shave such as reduced cost, reduced environmental impacts, and more consistent shaves. The cost of a double-edged safety men’s razor does not exceed $0.25 whereas you spend $20 for an 8-pack disposable 4-blade cartridge razors. Traditional shaving soaps and creams are made from natural ingredients and you can even have more savings using them.
As compared to razor cartridges sold in the market today, a double-edged blade is recyclable, and traditional shave soaps and creams’ bowls and tubes produce less waste than aerosol containers that commercially prepared gels come in. Many men walking around today are not even aware that they have poorly-done shaves as evidenced by redness, ingrown hairs and razor burns. Using a safety razor eliminates skin irritation when shaving and it gives your face a clean and healthy look because you’re only using a single blade instead of two or three that may chew up your face when cutting your whiskers. You need to prepare a safety razor, blade, shaving brush, shaving soap, shaving cream, and a towel when planning to perform a traditional shave. A safety razor is a machine with a piece of heavy and sturdy metal. Each blade possesses unique cutting ability and sharpness and you can select from a variety of different safety razor blades until you find what’s best for you.
Lathering up with a brush really feels nice, providing hydration to the shaving cream for a thicker and rich shaving lather, and helping in getting the shaving cream under your whiskers for smoother and better shaves. The technique of a traditional wet shave involves preparation, lathering and shaving, wherein the goal of preparing your beard is for softening your whiskers for an easier and less irritating shaving. Always remember that using a safety razor requires a skill and the right technique, and bear in mind to use as little pressure when shaving as possible with the blade angle as far away from your face as possible, shaving with the grain, and going for beard reduction not removal.Looking On The Bright Side of Fashions
