Replace your disposable razors!
It's no secret that big corporations have perfected the art of the disposable! Disposable razors seem like the cheaper option, but in the long term, the environmental and monetary cost sure add up!
What is a double edge blade razor?
A double-edge blade razor is a single blade which works on either side of the shaver head. The double-edge blade gives a smoother, cleaner shave as compared to multi-bladed razors (most often the disposable type). This is because multi-bladed razors tend to go over the skin multiple times. In doing so, one blade pulls the hair up and the other blades cut through the hair. This can cause hair under the epidermis to be affected, which increases the risk of ingrown hair. The double-edge razor is single-blade. The best way to use this razor is to simply allow the weight of the razor to do its work, without putting pressure on the skin. This allows the hairs to be cut without being pulled and reduces the risk of skin irritation!
Make sure the razor is sharp and replace the blade when it dulls.
You can also apply soap to the skin in an upward motion to act as a lubricant!
Since the razor is heavier than a plastic one, it is important to take note that you do not need to press down on the skin when shaving. Let the razor do the work.
Remove excess hairs and shaving products (if you use soap) from the razor with warm water or a simple rinse and dry thoroughly with a cloth. You can also take the razor apart to dry. Keep the razor in a dry place. Humidity can cause blades to dull faster.
Replacement blades are easily available cheaply in most supermarkets or grocery stores, or we offer a five-piece replacement pack option.
